Even though the work stress is taking its toll on me, yeah, I did a stress test at a clinic and I'm two points away of going depress because of this breathing difficulty that I'm having. Phew. Good thing I'm not. An evening chat with my colleagues managed to amuse me and keep me cool and sane. Pretty much. I don't exactly remember how the topic came up even though it took place like two days ago (Blame the slow processor XD). We were talking about in-laws. More precisely, they. Since of course I don't know how married life is, but what I've heard the other day sums it all up. Marriage is not easy. Especially if it involves fussy, nosey, selfish, stuck up in-laws.
I can't imagine if I had to deal with one of them. People says that when you marry, you are not marrying the guy himself, but the whole entire family. Now that can be a nightmare. Unless your future-spouse-to-be family members are like angel, case settled. If not, it can be a total agony. The type of in-laws I don't think I can handle would be the type who are sarcastic right in front or behind my face. Well, obviously these goes out to the mothers since mothers are known to be the fussy species. "Aih, macam tak berperisa je masakan ni, mak masak lagi sedap kan Ahmad"/"This cooking is so tasteless. I can cook better than this. Right Ahmad?" and would tell the whole damn thing to the whole kampung. If a friend did this to me, I would completely ignore and just tell to back off. Can you do that to your mother-in-law? Huhu. I don't think so.
The other type would be those who doesn't know how to talk. I mean, she's probably the shy type but having to start a conversation with an old lady who lives in her own world could be very challenging. I'm lacking that. I'm lacking that I-know-how-to-impress-people personality. Yes, I am quite a chatter box with friends my age or a little bit older, but having to impress an old citizen with my-so-called-brain, won't do much help. I had to play childish trying to get my mom attention XD. She is the serious type. I can't act that way. Then my mother-in-law will think her son married a chimpanzee. Wait, my mom did smirk up a little seeing me being all dumb. Hey, maybe I'll try that. Naa, too risky. Unless the mother-in-law is the type who likes to talk, talk good stuff, then I will make the best listener ever even though I do have a bit of a sound trouble XD.
My colleagues shared stories from their family members and I'm quite freaked out about this whole marriage thing. Well, I'll be lying if I say I didn't want to get married(who wouldn't want to get married?) but I might change my requirement to whom I should marry and add new ones. Either the guy doesn't have a parent(prime evil) or who doesn't speak Malay or English at all! That way I'll just smile even though she might be saying how stupid I am for not stirring up the soup. Haha.
*Ahmad has nothing to do with my life. He is just acting out XD.
