Hide N Seek


My Wifey has a dual personality. At work, she's a no nonsense person. She is a perfectionalist who delivers only quality work and is respected by her peers for her professionalism. Interns and newbies who work with her tend to be a little afraid of her, as she does not see the need to give face to people who are not performing.

We often have discussion about our way of managing people at work - I go for people with the right attitude, while she goes for people who can deliver.

On weekends, back at home, this corporate perfectionalist turns into this devilish naughty girl. Just earlier this morning, I came home after my breakfast at a neighbourhood kopitiam, unable to find her on the bed (she sleeps late on weekends). And she wasn't in the toilet, so I knew she was playing hide and seek with me. -_-''

It's a good thing my flat is small. There are only a few places she can hide, so normally it won't take long for me to find her. But somehow she always hide in the place that I least expected (she knows me so well), so after I found her, she will laugh at how long I took to find her.

And she will often ask if I worry about her "disappearance". Being the egoistic and macho man that I am, err... my answer is no?

Besides playing hide and seek, she sometimes tries to give her hubby a scare by jumping out from dark corners or blind spots in the house. Haha, she just get a kick seeing me get startled. And I will always tell her that she should try harder if she's out to get my insurance money, I don't get heart attack that easily.

And that's why knowing I have a little phobia for roller coaster rides, she brings me to amusement parks, and "forces" me to take those killer rides, using her "If you don't go up, I also don't", and show me that disappointed face of hers.

I am a sucker to my Wifey's puppy looks. I know.

But frankly, she's also a little scary cat when it comes to such rides, she just wants to have my hand to hold, and have a companion who is equally scared sh*tless after the ride.

Seeing her fun side sometimes makes me feel less conscious of how uncle I actually am. Youth is contagious, and I feel younger when I'm with her.

I love you, Sweetie!

How cute! You wrote that so well in such a romantic way. What did you do, Shingo??? :P Your wifey is indeed cute, I know that first hand and you guys look very good together. How about you shatter that myth about being an old uncle and tell everybody, that you're younger than my girlfriend? "-_- Cuz if you're an uncle, then she's a grandma, hahaha...

Ps: Glad she doesn't check my comments here :P

She sounds absolutely sweet! and that's great you know. I think her no-nonsense ways at work shows the independent side of her and the sweet/naughty side makes it fun for you guys. :)

MKL:
I like calling myself an uncle, I see it as a favourable term to reflect the many experiences I had in life. Lily has a sweet evergreen look, I see her as my junior when we were out togther during our Taiwan meetups.

Lizzy:
Under the table. Haha. Good thing she isn't a contortionist, else that will double the number of hiding places.

Kym:
so why doesn't my puppy looks work on her? =(

I agree that the last few lines were really sweet. Did she read this blog post? You must get her to read it.

Haha.. you're right. I see her as my junior, too. And she will always say that I'm crazy.
