I sent her a picture of fried fish. Of what I cooked today, this dish. To which she replied, at my neighbour's house, will have tried. Up until then, I didn't know. Sometimes, I catch on slow. Well, I was pretty certain. She wasn't vegetarian. Then what could it be? Well let's just ask her, maybe! I asked her about her family. Because even I've dealt with this reality. Some relatives who can't bear the smell. The odour of fish will make them jump in a well. To which she replied, they're absolutely vegetarian. That to me, would be like becoming a seminarian. I just couldn't stop laughing. I thought this girl would, with me stop chatting. And after I was done with the relentless laughing. I couldn't stop viciously smiling. Don't get me all wrong. This girl is exactly where she belongs. She has a very happy home. Built by her kindness syndrome. It just took me by surprise. I don't know why I always visualized. Her to be an absolute carnivore. Maybe because she's so similar to me, therefore. She's like my twin from another mother. I know that's not possible, but you get the picture. Love is beautiful; love is blind. Requires adjustments all the time. I would have done it too. It's about staying true. For now, I'll just keep laughing. My reaction is encouraging some stabbing. Probably even more, she hates me. After reading this, my poetry. But, you know I love you darling. You're a catch who's very charming. For now, I'm just planning a nice outing or dinner. Which will probably include some fish fingers. So we can both gorge on seafood and meat. And maybe end it with something sweet. I have been refraining from meats too. So, I'm really looking forward to this rendezvous. With my twin-sister-friend. Maybe someday on a weekend. I think of you fondly every now and then. Until we finally meet again. -RUELHA www.ruelha.com © Copyright Protected. All Rights Reserved.
