Masyarakat kita adalah masyarakat prihatin. Itu adalah satu fakta yang tidak dipertikaikan. Namun jika keprihatinan itu tidak disalurkan ke saluran yang betul, ia akan menyebabkan masyarakat kita menjadi masyarakat penyibuk.
Ehem, tiba-tiba rasa macam Karam Singh Walia. HAHA
Those following my Twitter (please don't follow me if you currently are not, most of the time my Twitter is loaded with crap) then you probably know about what I am gonna say.
My primary/high school friend messaged me on FB chat yesterday's morning, out of blue and perhaps curiosity that sadly wasn't properly channeled. She typed 2 lines and without hesitation (and probably patience) went straight to the gun.
"Salam. How's married life? Bila nak bertiga?"It was not even 9.30 am in the morning. I haven't properly digested my breakfast yet and there they were, the sentences waiting to be answered. I ran through various scripts in my mind on what the best answer should I give. Well you see, I have different personalities in me. There's this chirpy, care-free Moose, the skeptic and cynical Moose (which will take over whenever I am annoyed), and the collected, matured and calm Moose. Deciding that in dealing with such situation, given the background of the person who asked and relationship between us, I decided it's best for the collected, matured and calm Moose to take over. So I replied in my best manner;
"Salam. Alhamdulillah, so far so good. No rezeki there yet. Doa-doakanlah ye."She then went on ranting about how we should enjoy the honeymoon phase cause (according to her) when the baby comes along, it'll be a whole lot different.
Yeah, like I don't know about it already. I have been reading maternity blogs, for God's sake. I probably know more about strollers than you do.
I thanked her and log out from Facebook as quickly as I can.
Yeah, call me overreacting or drama queen or whatever but if she's truly prihatin, at least have the courtesy to chat about other things with me first la kan. Ini tak terus, baaam! ambush me with THAT kind of question. Some people (like me) really really don't like THAT particular question to be asked. Not unless if you have been my close friends, close relatives or my close colleagues. If you don't fall in either of these groups, yeah too bad you are not even eligible to ask. Sorry, but next!
If I am pregnant, I am more than happy to announce it, to the whole world if it would satisfy anyone.
But until then, you can do a great help by praying for us and not merely asking.
