Occasionally, Mae and I have one of those soul-searching, mind-bending conversations. Okay, okay, most other times we just talk rubbish, but last night, it was one of those.
"Do you think that it's possible to love someone in one continuous flow over time," I ask the wife, in a moment of brilliance, "or do people love each other in little spurts and spatter?"
"Erm..." this was a tough one for her.
"C'mon," I demanded, "which is it?"
"Erm... you answer first lah!" It was a cheap shot, cop-out answer. It was also the kind of non-commital answer you would expect from a lawyer. (Yes, honey, you can sue me for that if you like... Hahha! ) But there in her non-answer, was her answer.
I don't think humans have the emotional capacity to love one another without taking a break. Admit it, I'm clever and you agree with me. :)
