My colleagues are going on a company trip to Phuket for some sun, sea and sand. I, on the other hand will be going to Kuala Selangor. Or Tapah. *sigh*
While I'd like very much to be going to Phuket, I'd have to give this trip a miss. With Baby's fast-approaching arrival, I just don't feel comfortable being away from Mae. My wonderful colleagues suggested I bring Mae along, but I think at this stage, no airline will fly her anywhere. But I asked her anyway.
"The guys suggested that you came along"
"You know I can't," she said, almost wistfully, "But you can go if you want."
I recognise it immediately. It's the classic trap-the-weasel-of-a-husband manoeuvre. A lesser man would have walked right into it. But not I. *ahem*
"No, honey," I said in my typical, melodramatic, over-the-top fashion, "My place is right here, by your side."
She's a sneaky one. Thank God I'm sneakier.
But erm... joking aside, my place IS right here by her side. *ahem*
