life is a song

October 18, 2006 at 11:15 p10 (Appreciation, Married Life)

Women have bad hair day and open-wardrobe-full-of-clothes-but-nothing-to-wear morning and these two hit my wife this morning. As a consequence, i had to wait for 30 minutes in the carpark today. Called her on the cellphone repeatedly and incessantly but no reply.

When she finally turned up with a blacker than black face, and asked me “Why did you call?” in a tone that implied i was in the wrong. I must admit i was wrong for not being understanding and being childish with the calls but i was really angry because i was late for work.

I really wanted to give her a piece of my mind and start a world war three there and then. Lucky that didn’t happen. Whew!

Thanks to littlemissmay post yesterday of answer-a-question-with-a-song, i managed to hold back my horse and broke into the chorus of one of Stevie Wonder songs….

I just called to say “I love you”…..

I had never seen my wife so surprised and bewildered before! WW3 is averted and thanks, May, you blogging has made a difference today!

    LOLOL!! what a fabulous save to the day! so glad I “helped” somewhat. blogging’s an excellent way to share quirky ideas to share, isn’t it? your missus must be wondering where all these harebrained outbursts came from!

    cheers! *grin*

    4f: i am always a bit eccentric, just that never express myself with a song before!

  2. Eileen said,

    I should get my hubby to read this post… 😉

    4f: dont forget to let us know his reaction!

  3. Immomsdaughter said,

    Phew, that was close! Lucky for you, u shut your trap in time. Never underestimate a woman’s wrath 🙂

    4f: hahahah… i know, woman wrath is worst than WW3.

    dunia syurga idaman bila rumah halaman aman!

  4. Cocka Doodle said,

    Wah….you definitely made her day.
    i would have resorted to Sha na Na’s…..”You ain’t nothing but a hound……” LOL

    4f: got also but that one got to sing within the heart only!

  5. winn said,

    wow thats very smart of you!!


    4f: got huggies for smart boy or not? 😉

  6. Maverick SM said,

    You did the right thing….but you had impliedly accepted it as reasonable and fair. AS long as you can accept it as part of life.

    4f: SM, glad you are back! dont give up on blogging, ok!

    well i know where you are coming from. just being pragmatic, give a little and gain the world, that is my philosophy of marriage!

  7. wuching said,

    i just comment to say i labu u!

    4f: you finnally reveal your true feeling. come come… give me a hug! 😉

  8. ian said,

    Wah, hopeless romantic… A very timely comeback, I’d say. Well done…

    4f: tenkiu! not romantic lah but pragmatic!

    However, I wondered if she might have gone, “What! Where did you learn to be such a sweet talker??!! You’ve been flirting on YM lately is it??!!! ‘hai bu kuai dian cong shi zao lai’???” *pulls SF’s ears…

    4f: good extrapolation! but not in this case. 🙂

  9. spinnee said,

    must have surprises in r/s… den will create sparks…

    4f: well, if you are with a person 24×7 except working, it is getting hard to have surprises all the time. but that is not to say i am not trying. the little sparks that we see from time to time is worth it!

  10. Leonard said,

    bravo to tot of this at the last min…

    always like that so, they can call u many times, dun pick up calls, but when its ur turn, u’ll be in the wrong!

    4f: in marriage, give a little and save a confrontation – it is worth it!

  11. Chen said,

    very pandai 😀

    4f: terima kasih!

  12. angel said,

    *Total Eclipse of The Heart*

    pps: Spotting = Bleeding

    ppps: Waah! U wake up so early wan??

  13. zeroimpact said,

    I guess that’s life eh
    We try to avoid but sometimes they just keep coming
    How to avoid all the time leh

  14. fantastflier said,

    Crap, I would probably have exploded
    but that song singing bit has merit….

  15. Kenny Ng said,

    terror la u! I really dunno how to ‘tam’ a gal when she in angry or sad… must learn form u lah.

  16. Mick said,

    Guess no man likes to wait for his wife to dilly dally over what to wear, etc. The man can “disappear” and make the wife call him so she has to wait for him instead.

  17. happysurfer said,

    A benchmark move there.

  18. mother superior said,

    As always, women are so unpredictable, but so lovable, right? 🙂 Trust me, some day, you’ll miss her silliness of habits and words, cos that’ll bring a smile to your face.

  19. me said,

    hahahaha. yet to see a man who averted WW3 so cunningly. in the heat of the moment, it’s so difficult to hold back that tongue. bravo!!! i respect you for that.

    4f: we dont have to be right all the time. wise to let the wife win some arguments some time….

  20. titoki said,

    For a sec there, I really thought that an impending WW3 is going to start in Sillypore. 😉 *Phew* Lucky got SuperMay and SuperSeeFei saved the day!!!

    4f: appreciate you mentioned may. me no superman lah, just a man trying to please one woman that he loves 🙂

  21. zara's mama said,

    Wow wow wow!! What a witty and sweet reply!

    Not all men react like you you know.. most of them are 5mins late in their reaction..

    Aisay.. got younger brother or not? Older one also never mind!

    4f: can i offer you my son?
