2 nights ago, a colleague and i shared a cab home after a night out at bala clava. As my colleague alighted from the cab, i was giving the cab driver directions to get to my place when my colleague planted a peck on my cheek. The peck didn’t register at all ‘cos i was focused on giving directions – i didn’t even turn to look at my colleague or give any response whatsoever. I guess it didn’t occur to me anything was amiss ‘cos i’m so used to all these “muakz muakz” stuff that salsa people do. It wasn’t until i reached home that i realised that my colleague had planted a peck on my cheek… and that was sooo wrong, ‘cos i just soooo am not interested in him.
Well, i suppose it’s good that i didn’t have any reaction at all… so nothing awkward’s going to happen. Sigh.. thank goodness i managed to deflect our single date to a night out with random friends at bala clava. As the Singlish phrase goes… act blur, grow stronger.
