Once upon a time,
A long-long time ago....
I was eating nasi lemak with Tommy (Bukan nama sebenar) and XXX (Bukan nama sebenar)
These were my nerdy days where weekends were spent at the cybercafe playing games and shouting profanities.
At first we talked about computer games and somehow it spiraled into a conversation of philosophy, morality and life itself.
Don't ask me how.
Anyway the conversation somehow turned to this
Gambar sekadar Gambar Hiasan
"No wei I can't imagine not having a pair of hands man. I'd rather die then live without hands if they were to suddenly go missing."
To which I and Tommy were dumbfounded as there are many people out there without hands are living a healthy and happy lifestyle.
"What the hell man, why?" Tommy asked.
"What do you mean what the hell, it really sucks ok without having a pair of hands. I mean look, even eating this nasi lemak is something, I'm not gonna eat like a dog wei."
Of course, I just can't let that slide. I have seen people without hands eating and to equate it to eating like a dog is not only going too far but a bit to much no. Plus our friend looks really negatively on this predicament, I mean come on it's not the end of the world life can go on.
"Well if eating like a dog is too much for you.... I mean... You can always eat like a rabbit. Rabbits don't use hands to eat. It's like dog but much more cuter."
Tommy by now was laughing as hard as he can
"Ya man, if you don't like cute you can eat like a tiger, haaa damn gaya wei, tiger also don't use their hand wei!"
Then we spent a solid 30 minutes figuring out what other animals can our dear friend mimic if by any chance (and I pray he wont) are to find himself without a pair of hands.
Of course our friend are none to happy about that.
Moral Of The Story
Always look on the bright side of life.
If you don't want to eat like a dog, remember you can always be a rabbit or even a tiger.
I prefer rabbit.
