fairy tales ~ 童话故事

someone called me in the dead of the night (about 2am) just as i was about to zonk out to cry confide in me about her problems with her boyfriend. they used to be on the verge of preparing for the wedding of the century. but now they are on the verge of the breakup of the century instead.

recently, another called me, wanting to have someone to talk to about her disintegrating marriage. basically she is bitching to me about her hubby. and wanted someone to say, “yeah yeah… yah lor…” in the background, basically a yes-woman. something i am not very willing to do coz i kinda knew the hubby too. coz i have some ermmm rather indepth knowledge of the process of disintegration too as a sideline observer. one is too pampered and self-centred. the other is too submissive and choose to bottle everything up. like i say, a sideline observer would tend to see things clearer. bottling everything up would result in a massive explosion.

these were the people who used to gloat to me literally about how happy they were, how their boyfriends/husband is so darn good and how well pampered by their significant others. and now, they are the very same ones who reminded me why fairytales do not have sequels. imagine, “Cinderella II – the concubine returns!”, “Snow white and the ugly divorce”. geez, not very pleasant thoughts… i’ll stick to the usual (boring) fairytales fare.

and people still ask me, why are you so adamant that you are not interested in a boyfriend or getting hitched?? are you a brokeback mountain??

sigh.
某某人在深夜(大概是凌晨两点吧。。。)的时候,就在我准备睡觉的时候拨电话给我,为的要向我诉关于她与他之间的苦。本来他们是在准备世纪之婚礼的,现在却与对方打着世纪之战。

最近,另一位也拨了电话给我,向找人倾诉她那即将完全化开的婚姻。基本上她就是在那里数落(前)丈夫的不是,就要有个人在旁边“站台”,偶尔说声:“是啊,他怎么能这样!!太过分了。。。”之类的话。我不愿意这么做,因为我以旁观者的角度见到的,他们的婚姻会有今天的局面,不是单方面的问题。一方面太娇生惯养、太自私自利,而另一方又太懦弱、把一切都往肚里吞,搞得大爆炸的局面。

这些人之前有时不时向我嚣张地炫耀自己的另一伴对他们有多好,自己有多开心。而现在,他们却在我面前哭成泪人,提醒我为什么童话故事似乎永远不可能有,也最好不要有续剧。试想想,《灰姑娘II –  王子的另一个女人》、《白雪公主II – 丑陋的离婚》。还是省省了。。。我还是保持平时的那些(沉闷)的童话故事吧!!

而现在仍然有人问我:为什么你这么坚持现在的你不要男朋友,也不想结婚??你是不是“断背山”??

咳。

    People actually asked you if you are Brokeback mountain ah??

    Haha..

    Sometimes relationships are like that. When you are at its peak, it’s all laced with sugar.. and then when things go down hill, it becomes very bitter and sour.

    yah lor… i happen to be at the age where people either get wedded and bedded or they are brokeback mountaineers… or something must be wrong with them… :S

    yah lor… that’s why i prefer bittersweet dark chocolate. a little bitter, a little sweet and yet with the fragrance of chocolates all at the same time…

    Mum used to tell me this: You would only know if you have a blissful marriage when you are near your end. Sounds very crude, but i think there’s some truth in it lor..

    yeah… just like how some say that people would never repent and apologise until their deathbed…
