Geeks says the darnest thing: Rapunzel, Stupidity & Where’s Wally

 

rapunzelI cut off 6 inches off my hair and broke the news. The almost one-way conversation went like this:

“I cut off a lot of hair”

“Really?” I could almost see him frown behind the phone

“Yeah, don’t worry its not too short. The hairdresser asked if I wanted a bob. I feel like it but I told him that my boyfriend like me to be like Rapunzel”

He laughed and made what I believe is a false claim

“You can have short hair if you want”

“It’s ok. Since you’re cool with me doing everything else, I can obliged with keeping my hair long. But not too long lah. I can’t afford it….”

and I asked “Do you know what Rapunzel do all day in the tower?”

“No” he said

“She spends all day shampooing, combing and braiding her hair”

He snickered.

I think I made my point.

gutUpon finishing one of my recent favourite book, he said

“What book do you want to read next? I’ll get it for you”

“No thanks. I don’t want to read too much anymore”

“Why?” he asked, concerned and continued “Then you’ll become stupid”

“Will you still love me if I’m stupid?” I asked coquettishly.

With  a serious face, he asked innocently:

“How stupid?”

(?!)

(Of course I told him the correct reply should be ‘Yes’ not, ‘How stupid?’)

“You look beautiful today” he paid me a rare compliment. I could see the twinkle in his eyes that he truly liked the outfit

“Oh. Thank you!” I replied, surprised

“You look like Where’s Wally!” he exclaimed

“Who’s that?”

“Google It!”

This is what I found…
