Mummy got some ‘Mo

24 Dec

So there’s this guy in the society we’re living in, who mom’ s totally obsessed with. He’s in early 40’s, divorced for the past 10 years, been single ever since, socialises all the time, spreads all the gossip doing the rounds, whines when he’s losing at cards, lives alone except for occasional visits from his Mom, and has a nasal twang to his voice.

Do I need to put it in bolder words?

And what’s more, Mom fusses over him more than he does over her! None of my Mother’s male friends and following have ever received this sort of attention from her! Last night, she almost picked up the last (and only) piece of dessert from the dinner table (while we had a guest over) after he had customarily declined it the first time, and cling-wrapped it, dialed her ‘mo and told him she was sending him his midnight snack. He was asleep when she called, and she held on to the phone till he had woken up to

I cannot tell Mom though, that her new-found affliction is not quite as she conceives him to be, since she’ll think me to be the lunatic. So I’ll just keep myself content by telling everyone else instead.

I’m inclined to believe that he’s not the only ‘mo in my radar. The day before at the gym, which is merely floors beneath me, I was happily pulling my (light) weights when the only other fellow who seems to use that gym… short, a little stocky but quite muscular, seemed to think that in spite of my presence there, it was his private gym. Hence, as he was lying on the bench and doing crunches (?!?!) he considered it alright to pull his shirt up to the neck, and caressing his torso over and over and over again, to my extreme disgust. No, he’s not attractive nor unattractive, but no way on earth am I going to be in any way attracted to such a being.

So I started moving around a bit. Had a friend over for lunch some days ago, and then met up with a fellow for Avatar at CP, yesterday. It was completely friendly, though. Doesn’t help that he’s younger and nerdier than I am.
Afterward, I said goodbye to him and joined some school friends who were coming out after 3 hours at Castle 9, sloshed at 5 in the evening. Thankfully, I didn’t let the situation embarrass me. How often does a guy get to hold together (or whatever equivalent of it) at 5 in the evening in the Inner Circle?!

I think it’s almost time to tell Alika, the homophobic hag, who makes it a point to, as often as she can, tell me that she’s over her aversion. I have no reason not to tell her, and yet don’t feel the need to. We were riding to CP and back, and I gave her one thousand reasons to be convinced about me. When I was describing mom’s new friend to her, she kept asking “Are you describing yourself?” and couldn’t stop raving about this new book I’m reading that is just oh-so-fantastic and, (un?)fortunately chic-lit. What stops me from telling Alika is that I’d be telling her entire inner circle of friends, without wanting to. No, she cannot keep a secret. But then, why not, I ask…

      First pray tell me, what is “Emo”?

        Emo is like someone who’s constantly depressed and you know almost goth with dark eyeliner and black clothes.
        Let this video explain:

          Ohh, this is quite a concept!
          No, he’s no an Emo, just a Homo 🙂
