Educating Cakapaje

It was not an unexpected meet. But it was, an unexpected topic in a conversation that lasted till 2.30am. Aje however, came a whole lot wiser after that long conversation with 3 wise men.

Caught unaware, Wise Man 1 asked Aje "You are 46 already, when are you going to settle down?". Before Aje could reply Wise Man 2 butted in "I'm sorry if this offend you, but you are aware about birds and bees, aren't you?".
"Heck, having been a science stream student during secondary school, off course I am. I mean, we learn in biology class about animals, and even dissected several bees but not birds. Off course, I know what birds and bees are. The former is feathery with wings, while the latter is small, and can be hairy. But the thing is, BIRDS (and I stress the pronunciation there), eat insects, don't they?" Aje replied.
Dush! Aje suddenly felt a slight dull pain on his head as the third Wise Man smacked him with newspaper.
"Aje!" shouted WM2 "we are serious here!"
Deep in his mind, Aje whispered "I thought I was!"
Anyway, soon after they caught whiff that Aje may not be aware of the metaphor, they explained it in length.
"Oh that...." said Aje half blushing "say lah".

To cut short a long conversation, the 3 parted their thoughts and experience about married life. WM1 mentioned about Saiyidina Omar alKhatab who, when berated by his wife, accepted it willingly. "She (the wife)" WM1 quoted the Khalifah, "washes, cooks, cleans the house, bore and raised the children, and do many more things which very few other people would for me. Thus, if she feels irked about something and make noise about it, it would not be right for me to not to listen to her".
"In other words" WM1 said "everyone make mistakes and no one is perfect. Accept your partner's imperfection, for it fits her perfectly".

WM2, perhaps the wisest of the 3, then mentioned that marriage is not all bed of roses. Sometimes, and there are many of those times, the thorns do pierce our skin. But without the thorn, then the bed of plant there would certainly not be of the rose variety.

WM3, who did not say much all during the conversation, finally put in his words "You remember the book 'The Icon' by Frederick Forsythe?"
Aje shook his head, his mind unable to concentrate on that.
"Well," said WM3 "towards the end of the book and as the Masterspy was talking to his protege, the Masterspy's wife called out to him to follow her in gardening, which he later did. To show how much the Masterspy loved his wife, Forsythe cleverly inserted a line telling though the Masterspy hates gardening, he does so willingly and ungrudingly out of love to his wife. So sometimes Aje, you do have to do things which you do not like, but you do so without showing your feelings towards it. Comprande?"
"Si!" replied Aje with his face tilted down.

Right at the end, WM1 bluntly asked "So, when are you getting married?"
To that, Aje replied "Wa per sher tau!"

The 3 Wise Men walked away rather disappointed. 1, 2, 3.

But how do you do something that involves a certain appendage that has a mind of its own? It only gets up when it feels so? In married life, you are suppose to have full control over it. Master that then get married, otherwise try 'Mutaah'.

alinaabdullah said...

er. saya juga selalu di tanya begitu. tapi pilihan saya sekarang ini akan ada tentangan. macamana tu. huhuhu.

tak apalah.

takdir.

jalan ditentuNya. kan?

Cuma minta saja.

i think the other 2 bachelors were the wisest. they left early and escaped the interrogation session. i know WM1 too well, he'd grill you good...kihkihhhh...

Salam Cikgu,

I think, very few men are able to master that certain appendage. Hmm...and celibacy is also not something easy as well, while 'Mutaah' is already a no-no for Sunis.

Selamat Hari Raya Aidil Adha (belated).

Jodoh di tangan Allah. Kalau ada, insya'Allah tak kemana. Just keep on praying and the day will come, provided you really want it.

Raina said...

jodoh usah terlalu dirisaukan
tiba masanya ia akan datang menjemput,
namun perlu juga membuka lorong2nya agar jemputan itu mudah sampai dan tidak terhalang.

hehe.. :)
