You know hor…when you are married and lived with a person like 20 years, you can get sienz if you are not careful. But I suppose ours is built on lots of tough times, good times so I don’t feel sienz lah.
Like before Christmas, when I was up to my head with things to do, my atm got sick. So, he couldn’t accompany me on my shopping trips. And if that is not bad enough, he got lau sai after a lunch party at the office. Again, after that…when the lau sai is ok, he got the flu bug again. Doh! Like I have a lot of patience like that.
‘Cos if he is sick, it means a lot of manja-ing like foot rub lah, cook chrysanthemum tea lah, cook moey lah, lots of ‘How are you dear…..Feeling better now?’ (wei, all the husbands out there got jeles of the lucky man or not?) Then, don’t forget to touch-touch the forehead and insist he has a fever eventhough you know it is 80% whine only.
Yesterday, he got MC but he had returned to work today. At the same time, I started feeling sick because I thought I have time to feel sick already. But no….this morning, I woke up with a throbbing headache, chest pain (due to infection) and chills. He got me panadols, Rhinathol and a glass of hot Milo. (Don’t attempt self-medication at home ok? Only I can do that.)
I thought, ok lurrr…I sindiri nurse my own fever. But mana tau, my Std. Five kid pulak got the same thing and couldn’t go to school this morning. And I had been picking vomit and feeding medicines. I can forget about my own fever already. See lah, you say those marriage vows cun or not? I committed liao, so cannot complain.
Actually, it is a very good reminder for us to remember this marriage vows. I had been bed-ridden a few times due to sprain ankle, risky pregnancy, recoveries from surgeries blah blah blah and he had in his own way, run around me. And when he got his eheh, mild illnesses, I too had been giving that extra attention and pamperings. It takes lots of patience to make a marriage work, you know?
