The long and short about My Crush

Blogging can be a very painful experience. When I blogged about my uni crush’s fine chubby cheeks, I didn’t expect that wave of raw emotions that will overcome me so completely.

I first met her one lazy afternoon while attending a tutorial session in the uni. She captured my imagination immediately with her gentle gaze, her fine cherubic features, and her flowing hair that captured the wind. She wore a cutesy tee, baggy jeans, and the sweetest smile I’ve ever seen.

She was also shorter than my 1.6m, and I was very, very happy :)

In fact, she looks kind of motherly from all angles, and when she came for class the following week with a ponytail, I knew I’ve found a very eligible Significant Other. Sushi Eating Friend thought I was nuts, but I don’t blame her because females usually don’t understand the arresting powers of ponytails and chubby cheeks.

My granny must have been watching after me in heaven because the two of us were grouped into the same project team (my crush, not my granny). During the get-to-know-each-other lunch however, we couldn’t really get to know each other very well because both of us were the shy type. I was desperately trying to think of a funny joke or anything interesting to break the awkward silence, when I thought of a very, very important question that I knew I must ask because it holds the key to future matrimonial bliss.

Me: Eh, can I ask you a question?

Sweetest Thing: Ah-huh?

Me: *Took a deep breath*

Me: Do you like KFC?

Maybe that’s why I’m still a Never-Been-Kissed :(

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

    VERY DIRECT. usually hor, people will ask these kinda of 'sensitive'/quirky questions later on in the progression of r/s loh.

    Change your direct style if u wish to break the Kiss-Curse. ;)

    Mariameiti: Walau! I'm crossing my fingers I'll bump into her on the streets some day :)

    Freakkler: I also tried the 'safer' questions such as 'what type of music you like', but still no luck le :(

    Nyokk: OH YEAH! It's like one of the best things to come from USA. Heh.

    Spinnee: I was trying to cut down, but they have to give me those very attractive discount coupons :(

    Frog: You are making me blush :D!

    Sunflower: "Old ,man, 85, a virgin, about to die. wanted her tombstone to read...."

    Ah, that must be because he/she had a 'unsuccessful' operation :D!

  • At Tuesday, August 29, 2006 11:10:00 AM, Blogger Sunflower said…

    ha, i forget to change lah.

  • At Tuesday, August 29, 2006 11:11:00 AM, Blogger Sunflower said…

    and dun regret watching NANA. they are telling u u can be like them too :P

  • At Tuesday, August 29, 2006 12:02:00 PM, Blogger Green Ogre said…

    That seems like a reasonable question.

    I think a good ice breaker is " Say, are you hungry? Wanna go grab a bite?"

    It really isn't that silly a question. I seriously can't see anyone getting rejected for asking these kinds of questions.

  • At Tuesday, August 29, 2006 12:21:00 PM, Blogger Saroette said…

    Of all questions, does it have to be related to kfc?

  • At Tuesday, August 29, 2006 1:02:00 PM, Blogger Sibeh Sian said…

    Sunflower: CHOY CHOY! No way am I going for any operation that will 'transform' me ;)

    Spinnee: Yes yes, I like the show lah ok? BUT! Seriously, the fact that everyone is having more fun than me is very depressing :(

    Green Ogre: Aha! Finally someone who understands me :) Unfortunately, we belong to the minority :(

    Saroette: Your hubby likes KFC not because he reads my blog, but because KFC is so deliciously good :D! Imagine, you chewing that delightful fried chicken skin in your mouth, right now. Yummy yum yum :)!

    Old Beng: On sleepless nights, I ponder a long while about that question too :(

    Sounds like a rather feeble question to start a conversation... and maybe I'm too sensitive, but I think she may have gotten the impression u were hinting she had been eating too much KFC?

    Errr treat it as a lesson learnt bah, I'm sure u'll be a chick-magnet one day! (provided u don't overstuff urself with KFC and become obese)

    wahaha. I thought dis entry would be kinda romantic or something like that. But in the end I burst out laughing after reading the last sentence.

  • At Wednesday, August 30, 2006 12:42:00 AM, Blogger Sibeh Sian said…

    Yanzzz: But it's really an important question! If my future wife don't like KFC, I'm so gonna be in deep shit whenever I have the craving :(

    CCW: Heh, that was two words :D!

    Sunflower: After giving considerable considerations to your proposal, I'm afraid I have to say no. *Smiles* :)

    Mariameiti: Actually, I like Long John Silvers too! Heh.

    JJ: I've lost contact with her le :(!

    ASF: Damn. Now that you mention it, maybe she really did misinterpret my meaning. If only I have a chance to redeem myself :(!

    Pwnzorz: Oh yeah! The Chelsea Manager reads me blog :D!

    Cake: That's what everybody says! Think I won't see you again after I get pregnant :(

    TLL: But... but... KFC can be so romantic one wor :D!

    i think you should just be your natural self instead of trying hard to be funny. because at the end of the day, the guy she likes may not be the guy she first knew.

    a lesson i learnt from experience :)

  • At Wednesday, August 30, 2006 12:22:00 PM, Blogger Green Ogre said…

    With reference to mariameiti's staement; I have asked someone if she liked Long John's Silver, because I do like LJS. And yes, we did go off for a nice dinnewr at LJS.

    It isn't really all that silly? Is asking wheter you take sushi any different? It could be the way that it was asked, not the exact question.

    After all, "Are you okay?" has been used to great sarcastic value.

    Aphrodite: The sad thing was that I was indeed in my natural self when I asked about KFC. Oh well :(

    Green Ogre: I like LJS too :) And yes, "Are you okay?" can be very sarcastic indeed ;)
