First thing I did when I saw Aslan today was proposed to him. It was very last minute, I had to make do with a 50 cent coin. Not just any 50 cent coin, but dated 2005, the same year we first went out together.
What made it all random was the realization of today being a leap year. Everything is supposed to be the opposite today, or so they say. Perhaps is a celebration of eccentricity and whatnot. Leap year only happens once in four years, why not do something crazy on that very day?
I could only hope for the right answer and I also had a backup plan just incase things does not go according to plan. If the answer is a no, I would tell him everything was a joke. If yes, well, I would feel guilty for not planning ahead and buy a decent ring. Meh.
I guess proposing to a less than a morning person guy in the morning was not a good idea. It took several minutes before he could answer me back. He did not say no nor did he say yes. “I will marry you but could you please let me do things the traditional way?”
Later I realized his answer is both yes and no. Ha-ha. No wonder it took him so long to answer my proposal. He was computing the best answer to avoid any unwanted crisis or drama in our relationship.
Frankly, I wouldn’t feel mad or sad if he did say no because seriously, a woman proposing to a man? Not romantic lah. It makes me look desperate. Needy. Crazy. So un-ladylike.
Aslan was not exactly happy after I proposed to him. He said, “You took my moment…” His sadness did not last long. While he was preparing his breakfast, I could just see a little smirk on his face. I wonder what is he plotting?
My birthday month’s been great. A lot of rest and guess what, my holiday has been extended. I submitted my job application, now more waiting game. I called the editor twice. He said he will call me back. I am in dilemma of whether to call him again and ask about the status of my application. But I worry I might appear too persistent and pushy. But those traits are considered desirable in a journalist, aren’t they? Hmm…
But he did suggest I work part-time as a stringer while waiting for the actual confirmation from KL. At least that would give me something to do. Time to try out my luck then.
Oh March, please be good to me.
