After church today Sandy and Katy-jie and bro and me went to Pacific Coffee at One Raffles Link (that big water wheel place) for a reading 'party'. Sandy-jie had brought some notes on stocktrading, Katy-jie had some attitude thingy, Renjie had the Left Behind books that he should have finished reading for the second time long long ago.
As for me, as part of my, might I say, extensive research on Ancient Egypt (for my level anyway), I have borrowed, among 8 books in all, one on How to Read Egyptian Hieroglyphs. The one-consonant glyphs are easy to pick up, but I spent 2 hours ploughing through like just 6-7 pages today, being introduced to 2 and 3-consonant glyphs. I think it will be worth it though. Might even get the whole damn thing zapped for reference sake. (^.^)V
I wanted to go to toilet sometime after we had all settled down. But it was a one-toilet-first-come-first-serve thing, and the toilet was occupied. This lady came in though the first door, and was like 'Oh...' and after holding the door and thinking for abit, she turned and walked away, leaving me alone. In the silence however I heard a most curious sound. It was like if you were wearing a metal-strap watch and you oscillated your hand back and forth real fast... Chik chik chik chik... I listened carefully. And there it was again... and again... and again. Could it be...
When I heard the distant unlocking of the door I got up from my seat once more, after I had grown tired of guessing what sort of toilet business would produce that sound, and resuming my seat. This boy of about 14, I'd say, came out. Oh well, I surmised, boys will be boys. The lady was strolling towards the toilet and since I wasn't in any particular danger of bladder rupture I motioned if she would like to go first. 'Oh no,' she said, 'you have been waiting much longer...' I smiled and made towards the first door. I was just about to pull the handle, when the door suddenly burst open, and out breezed a 17-18 year old boy.
My stunned head turned to follow his passage towards the exit, and my mouth was open, eyes blank. The girl recovered first, and deadpanned, 'Oooh... That explains it.' I was laughing as I went into the toilet.
Boys will be boys. Buhrrrrrr. *shudder*
