a pain to bring her out  
my dearly beloved most endearing grandaunt's doing her rounds again. despite all that pain, sorrow and misery she's brought me on the very first day of her stay here with me this time, i think i still managed to have quite a fair bit of fun today. although at some point, i really felt as if my knees were gonna give way and that i wouldn't be able to stand up anymore. much as i don't enjoy her frequent visits and company, her mere existence and presence in my life is still very important to me.

i remember she really loves to pay me surprise visits every time i go on a holiday. she was there with me in germany, but decided to leave before i left for port dickson. a relieve too, for dragging an old lady along with me for beach games and into the pool isn't too good an idea. she sprang a surprise on me in the middle of the night up in the cold mountains of north thailand during mission trip last year too. and made me have to tiptoe over sleeping bodies to welcome her. i can't remember her coming along with me to hongkong or spain, but she was with me a couple of times in switzerland. those were certainly unforgettable times, trust me.

my grandaunt--she comes and goes as she wishes. i find it rather trying to grasp a proper understanding of her. just as i think i've got her all figured out, she springs something new on me. she's simply unpredictable. sometimes when i get wind of her impending arrival, i tend to subconsciously get into very bad moods or sink into depression. other times, perhaps the mere thought of it gives me a splitting headache or a horrible churning in the stomach. the rest of the time, it hardly affects me.

still... whatever it is, i guess i must thank God for her. i know i've said this here before about a couple of years ago, but i must say it again, just in case we forget. i once read a christian book which told of a lady who simply abhored her grandaunt and wished like crazy that she never had one. one day, just out of the blue, her grandaunt stopped dropping by to visit her. perhaps her grandaunt sensed her hostility and decided to keep her distance, i don't know. so i must be careful not to curse myself, nor my grandaunt, for that matter. grandaunts may come in useful in the future. so i shall bear with her for the time being. ouch.

hahahhhaha. this is a funny one. :D

but eyy, my grandaunt is like missing. lost. like those poor souls you see on the tv show Missing (it's a weird show..i don't understand why anyone would wanna know about missing people). my mum and me tried all sorts of methods to get her to visit me, but she just never showed up.

sigh... i miss my grandaunt.
a little less than the girl next doorin_transit on June 8th, 2005 06:35 am (UTC)
i sure hope you never cursed her before. haha. how long has she been missing? didn't you manage to persuade her to visit at least for a short while that time? maybe you ought to deng1 bao4 and go on that tv show liao. now you know its purposes!
the doobfemdog on June 8th, 2005 06:38 am (UTC)
hahahahha. oh no!

she's been missing for a few months. we are all worried. :(
i think she doesn't wanna visit because i was stressed up and didn't have time for her during term time, but now i'm so free she also don't wanna visit.
