the chronicles of a prematurely senile mind
Sometimes , i seriously feel that my memory is failing me.
Short term memory ? Definitely.
And i do mean short
. You know , like nano-seconds.
I guess it happens to everyone all the time , hands up all of you who finds this scenario familiar :
You ( thinking out loud ) : Where the hell is my pen. I bet Sis took it without permission again. Better go get it from her before she forgets.
**proceeds to open bedroom door when handphone suddenly rings. You turn around to pick up your phone when it stops ringing**
You : Bloody hell which asshole called and hanged up.
**You look at the door and notices your hand on the doorknob**
You : Huh why i am opening the door ?
**You walk back to your table continue writing with a pencil.**
Yep. Just a minor distraction is enough to make one completely senile for that moment. I am stiill trying to figure out why. It usually happens to me when i'm having a conversation on the phone and when the other party tries to speak out the same time i am trying to , i tend to forget about what i was going to say.
Okay , what a boring topic to rant about . A bit of a writer's block , lah !
God bless the black undies
Now now . I was flipping through Her World magazine at my aunt's place hoping to locate freebies nestled among the pages.
( Her World is a magazine strictly for the rich and or those trying to look like they are , IMO. I mean who the hell buys $300 tops from Prada or blows $1000 on a a SINGLE pair of shoes from Miu Miu ? Give me Cleo anytime , at least i am able to afford half of the stuff featured in it. )
And yes there was. I felt it.
To my utter disgust and disappointment it WASN'T a perfume sample or in the very least , a sampler sachet of a cleanser or something.
Yes. A frigging sanitary pad.
Weeee. How exciting. And it can even 'absorb 200 times better than other brands of sanitary pads. A breakthrough technology brought to you by Laurier."
Or so it claims in its advertisment.
WHAT THE HELL.
Do we even bleed THAT much enough to warrant such a product ?
If so , i guess sanitary napkins would be obsolete.
Walking around with buckets between our legs would be the norm.
C'mon , wasting money for researching on such inane problems when all that we ask for is something that doesn't bunch up , that will not detach itself even after running after the bus , that has an amazing capacity to soak up even the jelly jelly bits ( LOL. This i guess only the ladies will understand ya ? )
Can someone please contact Whisper,Kotex and all the other companies to tell them about our grievances ?
Goodness , i have at least 50 more years to go before i am free from it. Menopause. What a beautiful word.
