Saturday morning, while I was stirring in bed.
“Dear, can you take number for me to see the other eye doctor?”
“No, I don’t want Dr. Tan. I want the other one, dunno whathisname. The more handsome one.”
So, on Saturday when I was without my contact lenses and with no spectacles, I can’t exactly study how handsome my eye doctor is. Like if his eye brows are thick, eye lashes curl, nice teeth, hairy arms, nice, clean finger nails, what is the brand of his tie, etc etc. But I had noticed him all the time whenever I was in the hospital. He looks a little bit like Jackie Chan. But unfortunately, he talks like an Ah Pek. Anyway, I went back for another check up and hey, that man wears a diamond ring! Fuwah, I don’t remember seeing a man wearing a diamond ring for a long time, since my ex-boss. A diamonds crusted ring with a huge solitaire diamond. Ewws…I hate men wearing rings.
I notice that most male, married doctors seem to be under some sort of rules. Their offices definitely have a few, not one but several photos of the family and children. They usually wear wedding rings. Like my baby’s neonatologist (hope he is not reading this!) would have to remove his wedding ring before touching the baby in the incubator. (to avoid spread of infection)
Is it because their wives insisted they advertise boldly that ‘HEY, I AM A MARRIED MAN ‘(psst…ladies, that little band is not going to deter any wu-lei-ching/vixen from snatching him, ok?)
Is it because they are so used to have a foreign object wrapped around their fingers they cannot live without it?
I don’t know la. I haven’t wear my wedding ring for decades and I don’t even know where it is now. ‘Cos (hangs head in shame) my fingers swelled when I had my first pregnancy and the ring never seems to fit anymore.
And if loan shark brings a pair of hands and ask me if that belongs to my husband, I also wouldn’t know because I really can’t remember if he is still wearing a jade ring and his wedding ring. Die ler, how?
Wives, do you force your husband to wear the wedding ring? Wu-lei-chings, would a man with a wedding ring deters you from stealing him? Men, do you wear a ring? For what? Fengshui reason? Status symbol? Kena force?
