The long and short about All Things Happen For A Reason

Just like how your fingers will stink in the morning if you go to bed with an itchy backside, all things in life happen for a reason. Just like how Ms Tan came to hate men.

According to accurate office gossip (ie Nerd), Ms Tan was supposed to be this really good looking man-magnet when she was ten years younger. She was also engaged to this hotshot fighter pilot whom she got to know in uni.

Their wedding, however, was abruptly called off after she found out that he has been sleeping with her best friend.

If you think that was scandalous, wait till you hear this: apparently, they were sleeping without any clothes on. Which means they probably had sex. According to my accurate source of gossip again, the same thing happened to her mum, who found out only after Ms Tan was born.

Me: I don’t get it! Why are girls always attracted to such backside boys?

Office Bimbo: (Rolls her eyes) Of course you don’t get it. Your puny brain is incapable of comprehending the intricacies and idiosyncrasies of the superior species.

Office Bimbo: Anyway, to answer your question: Bad boys have this excitement to them, which makes the relationship very exciting. I was with this exciting Ah Beng once, and it was very. . . exciting!

Office Bimbo: On the other hand, nice guys are synonymous with boringness.

Nerd: I’ve been looking for you Mr Sian! It’s time for our Chinese Chess!

I’m not sure if Office Bimbo is right. I sure hope she’s wrong because all my life, I was brought up thinking that if I don’t smoke, don’t drink, don’t gamble and don’t womanize, I will end up with a Sweet Young Thing and create many, many Sweet Young Things of our own. Sigh.

Anyway, not that I’m feeling sorry to Ms Tan or what, but I resolve to be less nasty towards her in this blog. I shall refrain from using that B word on her, because despite the many overtimes, the verbal lashings, the unreasonable requests, the sarcastic remarks, the lousy appraisals, the last minute projects and the emotional abuse that she has been subjecting me to, she might be a really nice person after all.

I think it’s time I focus on the positive instead of the negative.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian
