To those who are here for the first time – this entry will make more sense if you were to read my previous entry on “Romeo and Juliet(s)” first.
To those who have been following my blog, I only have ONE thing to say about my Romeo –
THE SAGA CONTINUES…
Hmmmm…what can I say? I’m speechless – but, thank God, I can still write!
Here goes –
Ayah posted comments on “The Melting Pot at 47CJR” and “Romeo and Juliet(s)” today which read –
Just to update u...Your son NOW has 4 girlfriends!!! Definitely more macho than any Italianno!
I think u better come home fast...and start da mother-and-son talklah. Hahahaha...(I'm laughing worriedly..if there is such a thing!)
To which I counter-commented “WHHAAAATTT???! I’M CALLING HOME NOW!!!
And I did just that.
No beating around the bush this time – when Ayah gave the phone to Hilman, I immediately asked him –
Me : Hilman (chuckles) – Ayah told me something about you!
Hilman : I know – I have four girlfriends now (and he was sooo cool about it!)
Me : So, who are your new girlfriends?
Hilman : Gabrielle and Aina.
Me : Do they like you?
Hilman : I dunno…
Me : Hmmm…They are not your girlfriends then.
Hilman : Well…it’s okay - I like them!
Me : (Hmmmm…you obviously don’t get the concept, my dear…) Okay, okay who’s the nicest and the prettiest amongst the four, Hilman?
Hilman : Athirah.
(Hmmmm...If you have been following Hilman's story before this, you might have noticed that it was "Farhana" whom he liked before!)
Me : Second?
Hilman : Farhana (YAWN….), then Gabrielle, and then Aina (YAWN…)
(Mind you – it was around 11:00pm - way past his bedtime when we had the conversation! So, do excuse his yawning, please!)
Me : (Just wanted to play along with Hilman ) – Hilman, tak best lah if you have too many girlfriends…
Hilman : Why? (More YAWN…)
Me : You won’t have time to spend with Mommy nanti… Choose ONE only la… okay?
Hilman : (Silent for about 10 seconds, and then -) Okay lah, Athirah then (like trying to decide between wanting to go to McDonalds or Burger King?!)
Me : Okay. But, does she like you?
Hilman : I dunno….BUT, I LIKE HER!
Me : Sigh....
(Till the Next Episode - Errrrr…HOPE NOT!!)
I guess all mothers out there who have boys of their own, wherever you are, would agree with me if I said that they can be so cute with all their innocence. And I know that you would also agree with me that we somehow secretly wish that our boys will NEVER, EVER grasp the concept of having girlfriends, so that they will always be our little boy - forever… (Right?)
