I thought today would be just another normal working day with the usual Monday blues.
I was wrong.
Not long after I sat down at my desk, my colleague PL said "I went to your *social network* profile. How come you only have pictures of yourself? No girlfriend photo? And one other photo taken with a guy? Who is he?"
"Just a friend."
"And you look horrible in those photos. Except for the main picture."
"Fine, fine. I will put up new ones when I am free."
"Oh, do you have an English name?"
"No I don't."
I have no idea where this was leading to so I changed the subject to shoes. I told her about the shoes I bought.
Lunch time came. PL, MJ and I went for lunch. Usually we have lunch in a bigger group but somehow for today, it is just the three of us.
I have always wanted to try out this new place called OchaCha. It serves green tea in all its permutations and variety. Think of it like the green tea version of Starbucks.
I ordered the tuna wasabe sandwich. It doesn't look like much, but it was quite filling. The tuna has a hint of wasabi and the taste goes well with the tuna. I also had a green tea latte.
PL: Do you treat us as friends or colleagues?
Me: I think of you as colleagues and friends. Heck, we just went for karaoke last week.
PL: But friends and colleagues different.
Me: Well, I would say that some of our colleagues I would just consider them as colleagues. But you guys are friends as well.
MJ: Hey, ask us ask us. Ask how come it is only the three of us today?
Me: Hmmm, I don't know why. It is because you have something to tell us? You finally got a boyfriend?
MJ: No la ....
Me: Oh, you are getting married!
MJ: Of course not.
ME: Then why?
PL: Should we tell him? Think better not la.
MJ: We should. I feel that he should know that we know.
PL: But I can pretend that I didn't know.
MJ: No you can't. How can you pretend that you don't know when you DO know?
This goes on for another minute or so.
PL: You tell him then.
MJ: So could you guess what is it that we know? *looking at me*
Me: Errr .... no.
MJ: We know your deepest darkest secret.
To be continued ....
