Everybody, meet Lights

Two nights ago, I had one of them good dreams.

I was walking down the steps from my unit when on the floor, by the drainpipes, there was a note left for me with 3 superbly cute kittens. The note read: "A gift for you."

The first kitten was entirely black, the second I do not remember, but the other was grey and had brown patches all over it. I remembered it clearest, because in between the kitty's eyes was a bold orange patch in contrast with its grey coat.

As you all would know, I've been talking about wanting a kitty for ages. I was more than overjoyed, even if it were a dream.

I woke up all excited telling Jian about it.

Last night, while I was out with my colleagues, I had a text from Rachel.

"Hey, do you want a kitten! My brother found 2 but his gf can only keep 1."

I replied: "OMG YES!!!!! OMG I DO!!!!!"

Her brother delivered the kitty to our house. It wasn't till two hours later that I finally got to lay eyes on my gorgeous pet.

I recognised it immediately.

I can't explain it but, indeed. This truly is the kitten from my dream.

I am missing it so much at work! :(

A work-related post

So, the other day. I was standing up on a chair, trying to adjust the height of a poster, when I knocked over a container of tiny pebbles upon climbing on top of the chair.

Young Boy walks into the room at precisely that moment to say: "Gah! You clumsily knocked over all these pebbles!" To which I replied, "Yeah, hey, help me out please? Thanks!"

He proceeded to do what I requested of him and picked up the mess.

Just as I'm done with adjustments of the poster, I look down from the chair to see him catching my up-skirt.

I quickly stepped off the chair and contemplated if I should say anything to him at all. He glanced away, nervously changing the topic to something about Nerf Guns.

I couldn't help but be transported back to scenes of yesteryears, of how terribly embarrassing situations like this was for me with cheeky school boys, when I was still in primary school.

I related the story to Jian after work.

"You should have said something to him!"
"But, I felt so awkward!"
"He's just curious."
"I can't believe a little boy like him could stiffen me up like this."
"Well, why didn't you tell him how you felt then?"
"What was I to say??"
"Tell him he shouldn't be catching your up-skirt and that it isn't right," he paused.
"After all, you know, he looks up to you. Literally... Ha-ha!"

He thinks he's a comedian now.

Miraculous ways and byways

In near helplessness and desperation, this quote gave me comfort -

"Never be afraid to try something new.
Remember that a lone amateur built the Ark.
A large group of professionals built the Titanic."
