After reading few blogs today (heh macam tkde keje je kt office kan?), I realized that I never write anything smart in my blog. I am no stupid, but when it comes to writing, I just write whatever that comes to my heart at the moment. Showing off that I am a Miss Smartie Pants is not one of this blog requirement. Well.. maybe I don’t have to flaunt it. If I’m smart, I will always be smart regardless what kan? Hehe. wth?
Today I would like to kupas the topic of having a smart partner. How significance it is of having and living with one.
I hung out with Noorlin and his Iranian boyfriend yesterday at his apartment near PWTC. He greeted me with a big grin, invited me in gently and asked Noorlin to pour me hot drinks of my choice. We started talking and I fell for him instantly.
Not fell in that big love triangle eh. Tolong sikit.
The three of us talk about everything. U name it : Malaysian car drivers (which he claimed drive less recklessly than the Arabs and Iranians) to Malaysia’s politics (he calls our PM – Badawi) to stringent politics in Iran which require all their women to cover their head with hijabs to air pollution in Malaysia to Persian carpets to everything else under the sun.
I fell for his brilliance. Or perhaps I easily fall for people with wit.
Street smart or book smart? U pick.
People that are book smarts are not necessarily street smarts. They can memorize the book from cover to cover but that doesn’t mean they know how to apply it. And these kinda people always are so boring and skem-A! (They think that breaking and entering might cost them their lives!)
While for the streetsmarts, they are not necessarily have high grades in school but they are handy, brainy and their survival skills are high. U toss them in a sin city with just five bucks, they can last longer than u think. These people usually make better chatting company.
Well, as you already know, I prefer the latter. But with an addition that they have good grades as well (yeah, typical selfish me!).
It must feel so good to have someone who can talk to about everything. Even u have a Degree in Finance and your other half have Degree in Engineering, but you should complete each other by closing those gaps. Imagine you come home from work one day and u babble about your stupid accounts that don’t tally or perhaps there is deficit or surplus and later your partner was just like ‘huh?’. Grabbing the remote control and turn into the sports channel. Annoying isn’t it?
Plus, in deciding a partner to live with for another 50years to come (or more), I really2 need a pair of good ears to borrow (and vice-versa). I don’t want to stuck in a silence marriage for the rest of my life after a wonderful 3-years coz there is nothing else to talk to. And God knows, I love talking!
Ps: I really hope there are more to men than just their ear-splitting turbo cars and their
stupid football games. Ada ke?
