Nay…not your death nor birth. Not lust nor love.
You know what are those?
1) Sneeze and bad coughs
I tell you why. Last Saturday, while we were caught in a jam, Mother Nature called. Thank God for a Shell station with a newly renovated toilet in Jalan Datok Keramat. Of all days, I wore a belt that day. You know how urgent when URGENT is? And I have to wait for the traffic light to turn from red to green to red and green again, unbuckle the blardy belt, fold up my pant’s, lock the door, check that there are no peeping holes and no suspicious looking hidden camera or whatever. Nothing is more urgent than that. Not even giving birth. Giving birth still can hold on one more push before the obstetrician finished washing his hands. This one needs to go IMMEDIATELY.
The second trauma I had on the same day. I was very sure my coughs are well suppressed by the Dynadryl and Rhinathol I swallowed. And right in the middle of homily, where the priest was talking and we were supposed to be listening, I got the worst possible cough. I tried holding back but it went ahak, ahak, ahak, chokes, ahak, ahak, control, control, ahak, ahak, totally embarassed….And I cannot get out of my chair because it would appear that I am no longer interested to listen to the priest and that will earn four hundred pairs of eyes piercing me.
And those are two uncontrollable things in life. You can walk away from love, you can switch off your p0rn and turn away from lust. But if you gotta pangsai, you gotta pangsai. Mental note to self: I will not eat so much fibrous, healthy foods anymore because those are like nuclear bomb in your gut and bowel. Diet will have to wait another decade. 😛
So, what are two uncontrollable things in your life?
