2. It is nice to have kids because you can fool them with a straight face and they lapped up everything you said. (too bad some adults are that easily conned too).
Yesterday night, we had this group of super canggih superbikers vrooming around town in Penang. 5xdad who is itching to get another bike (we have one Yamaha scooter now) had been talking about them.
Kids were in the car with us.
5xmom : Hey, you get one of those? Then, I go and take motorbike licence?
5xdad : Oh, that one? *pointing to some RM80K bike* Can…. What colour you want?
#2 : Please lah, you better don’t. *looking at me in alarm*
5xmom : Why not? Cool mah, then I can vroom to fetch you from school.
#2 : NO!!!! Afterwards, you start to wear leather suit, tattoo hands, no sleeves t-shirts, boots, chains….. Please lah, don’t xia-xuey (embarass) me lah.
5xdad and 5xmom guffawed.
5xdad : Helloo….the price of those bikes can buy a car already. You think your father so rich ah?
5xmom : And you think I allow your papa to ride on those monsters? Afterwards, he doesn’t want to fetch me but some sexy girl how?
*sigh* Can’t believe my sons actually believe that I can transform into a superbiker. With a Harley Davidson! I don’t know if I should laugh or cry. If I write about nothing but Live 8, cars and bikes, it is because that’s all I did over the weekend. Traffic jam and TV jam. Boooring.
