Love Me, Love Me Not

A friend called me yesterday afternoon and before I cut our conversation short because of my busy schedule, she accidentally commented, "I am slightly worried about you. You don't seem to decipher hints very well."

"Why you said so?", Pancake asked.

"To begin with, you weren't even aware that the lunch many months ago was purposely arranged for you and my brother", G continued.

Pancake squinted her eyes, and asked, "But your brother didn't say much. He spent one hour telling me his busy life and his big business."

G thought for a while and said, "You've misunderstood him."

Pancake wished that sometimes she can be more discreet in her speech, but there is no room in Pancakeism to permit compromise in relationship. I admit I am stubborn, and particularly stubborn w.r.t. relationship.

Pancake apologised to G, "I will call and thank your brother for the lunch. I am sorry. I have found someone."

G interrupted with a disbelief tone, "Can't be! Who is he??"

Pancake smiled, "He just hasn't found me yet."

Hmm, so what takes 'him' so long to reach you?

Aiyo, I think he's still taking mrt instead of bullet train. Haha.

HaHa ... Ms Pancake is always Ms Know-All, but this time I would say, may be (1) he has changed his travelling plan; (2) he hasn't bought the ticket; (3) he is unsure he should take MRT or bullet train, (4) he is taking a detour or (5) he has never wanted the trip anyway.
