The long and short about That Telephone Conversation

Sucky Incident #01:
I’ve went for the interview yesterday.

It sucked.

Sucky Incident #02:
Some of you might have noticed that I’ve stopped calling myself Lorenzo. I hate to say this, but I’ve been dogged by bad luck ever since I gave myself that sucky name.

I’ve not spoke with Sushi Eating Friend ever since that incident, which feels kind of weird because we usually swop office gossips just about every other day. It felt so weird I couldn’t stand it any longer, and gave her a call on Valentine’s Eve.

Me: Eh, hello?

Sushi Eating Friend: . . . . What?

Me: Haha, are you free tomorrow night? I’ve made a really nice reservation for two at the Toa Payoh KFC!

Sushi Eating Friend: . . . .

Sushi Eating Friend: Sian, you’ve got to stop treating me like I’m some sort of a comfort pillow.

Sushi Eating Friend: You can’t stop calling me for the whole of two weeks, and expect me to go on a date with you on Valentine’s Day ok?

Me: . . . . Oh, haha. . . .

Me: . . . . I just thought you might want to go out because we made a deal about going out together on Valentine’s if we’re both dateless, but it’s ok, haha. . . .

Sushi Eating Friend: . . . . I’m dating someone tomorrow.

Me: . . . . Oh! Eh, that’s great! Haha. . . .

Sushi Eating Friend & Me: (Awkward silence)

Me: . . . . Hey, I’ve got to go back to work now. Enjoy yourself tomorrow ok? Bye!

Sushi Eating Friend: Ok, bye.

I didn’t even have the guts to tell her I just got fired.

With Love,
Sibeh Sian

    Be a man of action. Send her some flowers and say you've sorry you never realised that's she's such a wonderful friend.

    Heck, I feel for you man. Get her address, get me the flower website, and I'll pay for the flowers on behalf of you.

    i'm sorry. that really sucks.

    the flowers wannabe suggested might be worth a try! or even a single flower left, tagged, in her letterbox, if you want to be lo-mantic, ie. penny-pinching. ;D heh

    feel so sad for you... =( Be a man of action! Do what the others are saying!

    yeah right, be a man of action! go ahead and tell her that the feeling sucks when..

    1) you told her about SNC and she stormed off.

    2) told her that SNC is so nice and so but she's always the best (and the one you look forward at the marathon ending point)

    3) and how life has been bad for you ever since you haven heard from her


    how you hope you're her valentine's date. (not because both of you are still single.)

    be more lomantic, find more job and then stop being so irritating telling her how good other girls are! :D

    why do u want to hang out with someone like that? She seems to keep throwing tantrums at you.

    Aiyah, if she likes u, then she should juz tell u in the face. Fucking irritating to be throwing fits without rhyme or reason.

    You are better off with Yang =)

    You need to step it up. As well as change your name to Cojones.

    Don't listen to them. You should be upfront and honest with SEF and tell her that you think she's got a tight ass....

    Also, change your name to Javik-Cojones Sian

    Sounds so damn exotic.

    Still interested in the flowers or not ar? Send me the bill for them since you're jobless and I know how it feels to be jobless and not have money to buy flowers for that chick you're trying get with.

    I would move on if I were you.. If anyone is keen to be your friend, a call after a long silence is welcomed with open arms. Otherwise, there's plenty.

    Aww~ shucks. You should have made a reservation at a sushi outlet instead. Am sure SEF is more keen on gorging on sushi than kfc.
