Okay I really can't think of any other title. I'm just stumped.
This weekend's (rather good) football matches has left me tired during the day time, and I napped today again.
Except that there isn't any football match now.
Which leaves me pondering about love life and sex on my bed.
That uncle I wrote about some time ago. He passed on on Saturday afternoon. The poignant irony is that my aunt returned for the weekend from Hong Kong to see to her house renting business, and she would drop by to see him.
When she got to the hospital, my second aunt had already informed the others that the doctor informed her her husband didn't have long. My aunt immediately went in with my eldest aunt and second aunt. My mom and dad waited outside, not really wanting to crowd the ICUnit. When my aunts came out, there was no more point for my parents to see him. It was just as if he waited to have my aunt see him breathing one last time before he left happy.
Thus beckons the question: Would he have hung on had my aunt not come? He was in more or less a coma after all. He couldn't consciously hear anyone, much less respond. Was it the best form of apology to my aunt he could have given, waiting for her before breathing his last?
What bothered me more was the rather obvious fact that quite from the norm, my aunts and mom wasn't exactly in tears and surrounded by used tissues. And this is the moral of the story ladies and gentlemen.
My second aunt was never one for social support. During my first nephew's one-month celebration, she didn't turn up. When someone else's relative passed away she didn't show up at the funeral either. I've often heard resentful whispers about this among my mom and aunts.
DotA players should be familiar with this concept. You don't help when your ally is in trouble, when it's your turn to be raped, they won't be crying over your death either.
Family, or friends. Certainly family should have little exceptions. And as for friends, if the relationship means anything to you, then you should always always always be looking out for one another, showing care and concern, and not just taking taking and taking it.
Right. Class dismissed. Practice makes perfect people.
