Beauty and the Stump
Recently we discovered that our colleague was chasing after a girl. I shall refer to him Stump because that's the feeling I always get when I talk with him. A very socially-awkward fellow. His relationship seems to be a complicated affair because after so many months he couldn't confirm the status. Here's an excerpt of a conversation he had with another colleague I shall call PointBlank, a mother of two:
PointBlank: You went on a Singapore with her?
Stump: Uhmm.... Yes.
PointBlank: You paid for everything?
Stump: Uhmmm.... Hotel, flight tickets, Universal Studio tickets....
PointBlank: Nearly everything la.
Stump: Uhmmm... Yes.
PoitBlank: Did you hold her hand?
Stump: Uhmmmm... Yes. Only in Singapore.
PointBlank: Har? She won't allow you to hold her hand in KL?
Stump: Uhmmm... Yeah. She says I'm not smart enough to be introduced to her friends. Perhaps later when I'm smarter and make more money than her.
PointBlank: WTF?! She's playing you for a bloody fool!
Truth be told, she is playing him for the fool. But if he wasn't a fool, I wouldn't call him Stump. Love is blind I guess, and some people are blinder.
