I Am Prettier When...

I'm sick. Walai, it may sound strange but it's true. I've had the mother of all flu for the past one week but as weak as I felt, whenever I look in the mirror I see a prettier me. Sparkling eyes and clearer skin. I just don't understand. I've started feeling better now but I'm not looking forward to getting the 'normal' Parakeet look back. I want the 'pretty-sick' Parakeet look.

In other news, I gathered from a friend that most women tend to just marry a guy they are not wholly happy with because it is far more important to be married and have kids than to worry 'too' much about the guy because 'really most men are the same'. She told me, "Parakeet do not be deceived it is the way it goes". I guess that's what you get when you take your relationship problems to someone who is enduring their marriage rather than enjoying it. Me I will not marry until I am more happy than unhappy with my partner, whether I'm being reasonable or not, I shall sleep on my bed the way I lay it. Each to their own and God for us all.

Merry Christmas to my wonderful blogville family. Please share some cheer this season and God bless you all.

I guess this marriage thingy is getting sooo overrated. But like you said, i know there are women (and of course men) out there who are having a great marriage. Thats not saying everything just works by default, but they're actively forgiving each other's faults & making sacrifices...

Like Blessing says, "DONT SETTLE"! God designed marriage...And remember what HE perceived after the acts of creation, HE saw that twas good!!!

I really do not understand why we women settle in relationships...For me I dont want to ever what to settle just to have a man and children.

Merry Christmas

You're so lucky I look so lifeless when I'm sick. Marriage is such a major issue these days. It's starting to get really intimidating damn.

I agree with you on the marriage thing. Women can also get so bitter too about these things when they're unhappy in marriage and others aren't. It's like well you chose your man... I agree don't settle

On the other hand I'm a hot mess when I'm sick or stressed about work. Lucky for some... ;)

Parakeet is flu pretty - hear, hear o. lol. Hope you are better and sparkling.

That marriage advice is not true o. That is from her perspective and how do pple just conclude that most men are the same kai. Why shd we just settle for less? Is it even by force to settle? Haba.

No wonder pple are praying for me and hubby to have a child just 3 yrs into our marriage. As if we married to have kids and as if we have problems with having kids- mscheew!

people and their yeye ideas about marriage

i refuse to spend the rest of my life with someone i may be tempted to poison

Who am I? said...

there's no perfect marriage...the friendship is all that matters. the friendship helps when the marriage is in trouble.ing

Afronuts said...

Goodness!
I've heard of women looking real pretty when they're angry but when sick? lol...that's really weird.

I can imagine what I'd do if I was ur dude...I'd always expose you to something you're allergic so i can feast on your good looks!

Good thing you realised you where probably asking advice from the wrong source. I always tell those close to me, get the advice from the person whom it seems to be working well for.

And get well soon from ur flu!

My dear, marriage is to be enjoyed not endured...stick to your plan and you will most likely get what you desire...
