“Don’t you have any suitors or a boyfriend, maybe?”, randomly asked my dad as he was driving me to the MRT station a few days ago. I nearly accidentally stabbed my eye with my mascara brush and to say that I was taken aback by his statement is an understatement.
I’m pretty close with my parents and we do talk a lot but topics like their sex life and my issues with love remain to be undiscussed (thank gawd). So yeah, I basically just answered him with a flamboyant “OMG NO I HAVE NONE KTHNXBI!”
I did see a hint of repressed chuckle when he said that.
“I don’t know why! You ask them guys, not me!”
“Naku anak, you’re not getting any younger ha…”
I swear to the heavens that I flipped and flailed inside the car and even did triple cartwheels with a split at the end. I could not believe my ears! Did my dad just insinuate that I start copulating having relationships with people or the hour glass would die on me?
