Spring in love

As the ice melts away, there seems to be signs of life again.

The aromas of flowers blossoming and fresh cut grass hits your nostrils.

Don’t you think spring just smells like love?

Pick a Fight. Have make-up sex. Repeat as desired.

July 29, 2012 1 comment

Life can get a bit mundane, boring, and routine sometimes.

Things are just plain dull day in day out.

Work. Eat. Sleep. TV.

Same grocery store.

Same train.

Same sandwich.

Same partner.

Pick a fight.

Create some drama.

Chuck a tantrum because he added that long-lost pretty primary school friend of his on Facebook.

Don’t pick up the phone nor reply to messages and make him think he did something wrong.

Go out to dinner with that guy he hates and relay all the wonderful things about him.

Turn off your phone to see and make him call your parents and / or flatmates to hunt you down.

Spend the money on a stunning dress or to-die-for shoes when you were going to buy him that Wii game.

Ask him what is different about your eyelashes and / or eyebrows today.

Shrug casually when he spends 15 minutes excitedly telling you how his football team had a victorious win.

Ash him if you look fat in these G strings then lash out at him for even thinking about it.

Yawn loudly when he is doing his thing and make him try harder.

Play with fire.

Just don’t burn yourself.

Fragile. Handle with care.

Many times I hear girls talk about their past relationships and say something like ‘I don’t know what I saw in him at the time’, or ‘OMG he is the biggest a$$hole on the planet, why didn’t I see it?’ Or even blame it on their friends with ‘Why didn’t you tell me?’

So we all have our failures in judging people and their character, I guess, what’s why it’s called love blind. But for me, even if he had anger management issues half the time, the other half of the time he was the sweetest who plans what to do on each date and picks me up from home. Or the time where he told me they had broken up when he was two timing us, it taught me not to believe every word a man tells me, except that I’m beautiful. Whilst cutting out his face from photos or chucking away the presents he gave you may give you temporary comfort and relief from your hurt. Reality is you still have to pick up the broken pieces.

So would you rather never experience the joy of having or go through the sweetness but also the pain of losing?

Donna and Tom have been happily married for 5 years. Tonight is a typical Tuesdays night, Tom gets off work around 9pm grabs a quick bite, gets home and starts working on his laptop again. Donna gets home just after 11pm from a clients’ dinner. She walks home and finds Tom working on a presentation as she walks in to the study, she gives me a kiss on the top of his head and says “Hey honey, I’m home.’ Without lifting his eyes off the laptop or turning his head, Tom says ‘Hey sweetie, how was the dinner? Is Clifford going to sign on with you guys?’

Donna walks gets changed into her nightie and says ‘Yeah I’m pretty confident I can get him on board. Have you eaten honey?’

‘Yeah I just grabbed a quick bite before I came home; I have to get this presentation to Stephen tomorrow. By the way, David and Susan asked if we wanted to go over to their place for dinner on Saturday’ says Tom as adjusts the graphs on his presentation.

Donna walks into the kitchen, downs her daily glass of milk and Vitamin A-Z tablet and replies ‘Saturday should be fine, if you pick me up from my yoga class we can grab a bottle of wine on the way and head over to their place.’ Then Donna heads into the bathroom for her make up removal and “evening wrinkle minimisation hydromoisutre” routine as she listens to Tom type away.

Donna checks her blackberry for any urgent emails and her schedule for tomorrow then head off to bed, ‘Goodnight honey.’ ‘Goodnight sweetie’ Tom mumbles to his laptop.

As Donna lies in, she removes the neck brace she has been wearing all day since she strained her neck this morning and the doctor made her wear it for a couple of days to keep her neck from too much movement and pressure. Within the whole two hours that Donna and Tom spent in the same space in their home, Donna failed to mention it and Tom failed to see the brace she had been wearing on her neck because his eyes were glued to his laptop.

Do we all roam about life like this without noticing the details? Are we living in the same space but yet failed to observe? Are we physically there but not in mind and spirit?
