and it was my parents' 27th wedding anniversary


when it comes to celebrating anything, my family sucks! be it a b'day or an anniversary or anything. we(pap, mum and myself) "celebrated" my parents' 27th wedding anniversary last friday(1st of june). on the 31st of may, we went out to have a look at our new flat and arrange a few things. by the time we were on our way to have dinner, it was already 11:30pm. since we always eat out on thursdays and fridays, we headed straight for a lebanese restaurant. while we were waiting for the food (i look around and try not to stare at the others....my God!...what gluttons!) my watch makes a beep sound and i realise that it's midnight. "hey, it's pap and mum's anniversary". pap looks the other side and chooses to act like as if he didn't hear what i just said, while, mum gives a nervous laugh (she tried to do what pap did, but i guess she didn't because it would've looked odd since i had barked the flash news at her). when the silence thickens, and we start feeling awkward, mum asks pap, "what do you think of the orgin of the lebanese people?", to which pap and i promptly replies, "they come from lebanon ofcourse!"...
Mum (sniffs indignantly looking at pap): that's not what i meant. you didn't understand my question...
Pap(scrathing his head, acting confused): i'll understand only if you explain.
Mum: i mean, are they the descendants of abraham or...
Pap: don't know whether they are the descendants of abraham or sunny, or jacky or anything..
(for those who don't know pap, pap has a limited knowledge of the bible...like me)
blah, blah, blah.......they argue...and argue...and argue (an argument fit enough to be presented in the court).
i sit back and wonder how pap and mum ever romance...i mean, all these years i looked at them as my parents and not as a man and woman committed to love each other till death. i sigh, because nobody in our family seems to be romantic or anything. all five of us are stiff and rigid when it comes to expressing soft emotions.....
the next day(2nd of june)....
i am online and my big sis pops up(online). i say hi and everything and we decide to speak through the headphones. while i try to settle down my sis "calls" me and i ignore it. after having settled, i "call" her back and we talk.....
while checking my mail the same day, i see a voice mail sent to me by my sis and i curiously open it.....the next 4 mins were moments of revelation!...i realised that when my sis was waiting for me to settle down, she had a small conversation with her husband...and by mistake recorded it and sent it to me as a voice mail (again by mistake)....i grin to myself, and realise that we do belong to the romantic species afterall....it's just that we're all shy to express ourselves...

okay little sis... i need to have a few words with u:
u let out the family secret that we are hopless romantic lambs in wolves skin!!!! (oops, turned the phrase around, whatever)

and u dare to add insult ot injury by thinking that we are "rigid" !!??... man, i cannot keep track of the number of times i have been called romeo or some such... oh well.. atleast the tubelight did turn on over there, so i guess its "alls well that ends well", eh?
