Falling In Love With The Wrong Woman Is Not Good For Ya.

When love comes knocking on your heart like a hungry woodpecker there's only two things you can do to save yourself from whatever it is that needs saving but as far as love goes, you'd best go along with the flow and let the love you've got for whoever it is you're falling in love with blossom into something completely senseless that you don't mind saying something like; I think I've fallen in love with you. You can go ahead use the Present Perfect Tense or whatever Tenses they've got in the English language, it doesn't really matter because you know better people in love have no time to think about Grammar or logic or accounting. Which explains why you don't keep tab on the way you spend your money on things you wouldn't normally do but you know better, people in love will buy anything including his own worn out shoes twice over for all he cares.
Of course love is a good thing to happen to me when I am feeling a little hungry in the belly because love can make me forget about being hungry for a couple of minutes when my mind is filled up to maximum load thinking about what I am going to say when I next see her in a new dress that I bought for her because I thought she would look a thousand times better in a dress every nice girl in the Avon catalogue is wearing. Of all the time in the world to think about all the nice things about her, I suddenly got mathematics thinking about whether the dress is of the right size or is it two sizes larger. This thing can make or break a relationship, especially if the woman in question has been going to Fitness First to get into shape and you come along with a dress two size larger. She might take it differently like thinking you're making fun of her trying to stay in shape even though staying in shape is probably the hardest thing to do right now than trying to cap the oil spill especially when just one floor below the gym there's a good deli selling nice looking danish and pastries that look too good to be left alone uneaten.
And so I am thinking to myself whether I should go get another dress that's two sizes smaller. But this also got me thinking she might take it differently and surmise that I am trying to make fun of her trying to stay in shape which is probably the second hardest thing to do than trying not to buy all the danish and pastries from the deli one floor below the gym.
That's what love can do to you. It can make you think about things you wouldn't normally think about and imagine about things that you would otherwise never have imagined in your adult life. But this is love and it does things to you that can be uncanny in many ways than a thousand, or a million.
And so I'm thinking to myself to take a ride to Pendangshire and go see someone but I am thinking this isn't such a good idea on account I have to call someone to say sorry about the dress.
And so I call and she said: What dress?
Now I gotta remember the courier company I paid to send the dress to but most importantly I gotta remember whether I had written the right address. Love can do this thing to you but I don't mind one bit because love makes me feel like a million Malaysian Ringgit which is as good a currency as any in the world.
Did I send the dress to Sungai Bakap address? Now I need to hire a private investigator but the last time I heard he is in London and no one can get to him because he doesn't have a forwarding address, or a phone number.
Love can make you do funny things but it can make you feel absolutely great that you don't mind being a little funny. Or completely stupid. Which is a good thing to feel every now and then.

I always believe that love is the heart playing a prank on you. You see, the heart is completely independent of the brain and couldn't care less as to what signals the brain is sending. For all it cares, the brain can go to hell. You see the heart is one stubborn SOB, or a pampered child. If it says it wants a certain Joyah then Joyah it is, not even a certain Ms Jolie could change it's mind.

Salam bro,

I think, there's no such thing as the right man or the right woman to fall in love with, or else it won't be called 'fall'.. It is indeed the nature of this "...crazy little thing called love..." that makes us losing our mind and conciousness..

no and no?

love almost make me forsake everything that i have, job, family, properties and depart from some obsecure mangrove jungle on a boat pancung across malacca straits together with some illegal aliens.

some might call it a dumb act but i prefer to call it a noble act in the name of cinta suci akan ku rempuh segala halangan, lautan api akan ku renangi kind of thing.

in the end i don't have the guts and i chickened out.

so in my case, between the brain and the heart, there is a third factor, the guts or lack of it.

not only the size lah , mate, what about her taste in style, colour, pattern etc, something else that you might not have thought of, and that she notices, like the stitch of the hem perhaps..

cheers

Dear Sir,

About the love thing...just do whatever your heart feels right. 'Sieze the day!' just go to 'pendangshire' and act silly. Good luck :)

Is this a case of :
-the right dress, wrong ad..dress > not good,
- or wrong dress, right address > she'll understand,
-or wrong dress wrong address > pheww!

But then it's not the deed but the intention that counts :)

Kata Tak Nak: Good way of looking at it, sir.

Takbest: I agree with you, ma'am.

Snakebite: That's a nice story, sir. I'd start the movie (if it were one) with the scene of the perahu pancung.

Anonymous 2.34 pm: Can't afford diamonds, ma'am. So a dress will do.

F: Thank you, ma'am.

Anonymous 2.51pm: You've got it right there.

MM: I had to take a chance hE HE

Ina: I hear your advice, ma'am.

Zendra-Maria: I like the way you think around the word dress - very CSI ha ha

Salam sir..

In pendangshire..a "dress" can be considered as a"luxury gift" coz most women are wearing worn out jeans and shirts or cotton baju kurungs. And..dont worry about the size coz most of them are naturally slim due to their hard work in "bendang"..hehehe. Love makes you do crazy things, insane things. Things in a million years you'd never see yourself do. But there you are doing them coz U can't help it.Being in love just make u forget where u're. It seems like u're in different planet, thats why u always fall with the wrong man/woman coz opposites attract.. for example, an urban looking girl might fall in love with an "ustaz looking" guy bcoz love is a combination of mystery and chemistry

Regards
Ms.Pendangshire..

I'm in love with a man who, sort of "berkenan kat saya", but afraid to make the move. and now things are quiet. i reckon this falls in the category of falling in love with the wrong man as well.

by the way, do you have a fb account?
