What About…

 

 

‘I know everything about you. I can tell when you are grumpy. When you are sulky. And when you are about to scream and be snappy. You can’t hide anything, just like a baby.' One of my colleagues said to me today.

I thought Gee, am I that obvious? But she was pretty right but not quite right.

'Yeap. But can you also tell when I am pleased?' I asked.

'Yes, when you are sitting in front of a computer smiling, laughing or even frowning with or without your fingers typing.'

I grinned.

‘I think that is the only thing you hide from us. Your pleasure, your fun. You hide them in your written words. We know you have a knife mouth but a heart of bean curd. But you don’t have to scream to tell people how you care. So what about also sharing your pleasure and fun in your spoken words with the real world?’ She finished with pat on my back. ‘But keep writing too.’

 

I walked away with lots of bubbles in my head.
