The girl who laughed too much, too loud

Do you think of me? Ni xiang wo ma?

Hmm.. or should it be: Do you miss me? – In English.

I was reading Sissy’s blog. According to her the choices are:

a) of course, all the time

b) maybe..a bit?

c) erm…actually not really (was too busy watching soccer, doing work, etc)

d) actually don’t have leh. (aka I did not miss you)

Let’s let aside the grammatical atrocity for the moment. And examine the answers.

If you chose a) of course, all the time.

Then you win! 99.99999999% of the gals (AND men) are hoping/praying/begging/yearning/desperatingly-crawling-their-eyeballs-out for this answer! (okok, ignore the desperatingly crawling the eyeballs out part!)

Who will ask this question?? Is it the insecurians (as concluded by sissy)? The whiners? The immaturians? The lovey-doveans? The eat-finish-got-no-big-business-to-do-er?

(ha. getting a kick out of labelling people :P)

But let us really sit down and think for a moment.

How is it even possible to think about someone ALL THE TIME?!?!

At least it is not possible to do so, especially when we are working/studying/going out with friends. Right?

Thinking about that one person is going to be really destructive! Imagine writing the most important piece of document in your career when thinking about your someone, instead of your ideas? Imagine playing bishi-bashi thinking about your loved one?! Oh man, I can’t even imagine!


Surely when you are at the canteen buying lunch, you are thinking of what do you want to eat?!?! Right!

Hmmm.. this made me think of all the *ahem* sweeties that told me that they thought of me all the time!

And I took all the crap in! ha.

Okay, I shall not be a prude to dismiss the sweetness and sincerity that comes with this. So I figured that it actually means: I think of you very often.

Which is already sweet enough.=) *smiles*

AND. There is no real need to go into the other answers, is there?


b) maybe..a bit?
Maybe? WHAT maybe?!? People only want to be nice and ‘tactful’, but adding the word ‘maybe’ in!

What’s more! maybe..a bit?!?!? A BIT! You already used ‘maybe’, and you still used ‘a bit’?!?!

See, maybe is there, as it is just a possibility. Maybe yes, maybe no. So if it is yes, why can’t you just say it out straight?

ah… I know your little secret. It’s a No, and you did not want to hurt your dearest someone, yet you do not wish to lie, right? =)

Really. Just tell the poor soul the truth. Rather than say a lie so unbelieveable that insults his/her intellect! (And I wonder which is more insulting:P)

Oh, you do have a better option! LIE! (No clue as to how to lie? refer to option (a)!)

c) erm…actually not really (was too busy watching soccer, doing work, etc)

What is ‘Not really’?! What do you really want to mean?

The answer is simple. Yes or no!

Q: ‘Do you want a drink?’
Ans: ‘Not really.’

Geez. Just say NO! (YES! with the exclamation mark!)

NO! I do not miss you.

And you will sound less phoney.

If you do not want to upset the other half, LIE!

d) actually don’t have leh. (aka I did not miss you)

the word ‘actually’ is added to cushion the blow. But it is actually not necessary.

So the good ol’ capital NO will do the trick 😉


(Ha. )

So in conclusion.

The moral of the story is:


The author shall not be held responsible for any physical violence that the reader(insert your name) might be subjected to, after following the former’s advice.

Physical violence comprising (but not limited to) of slaps/ear pulling/a knock on the head/durian kneeing.

Disclaimer: I do not mean a single word that I wrote for this blog.


I admit, I do ask that stupid question.


I totally melt that the response (a).=P

yeah yeah. predictable.

So you know, *winks* someone can still continue to say that to me.=)
