Part 1 (yes there will be more of these, suck it up).
The internet is a funny place to be. And if you spend as much time here as I do, chances are you get to experience the weirdest moments of self discovery ever.
For instance, I have been looking to buy a new phone since forever. I have asked friends, colleagues, relatives, but nobody can help me find a phone I deem perfect. (My mum telling me to ask God to send something from heaven doesn’t help either).
So then I turn to the internet. Makes, models, price, features, you can narrow down searches to your preference. But all I care about is color (yes I am attracted to colorful things). Unfortunately they don’t make a separate box just for color yet, making it that much harder for me.
Moment of self discovery: Color matters, though I’m glad phone hunting is different from dude hunting. Imagine being at a family gathering, where well-meaning aunties point out guys to you and you say, ‘does he come in another color?’ Yeah, that would work out nicely.
Then I go browsing through stuff randomly and I find this lady, making a name for herself as a ‘plus sized’ model. So I google who exactly plus sized women are and it says:
“Plus size models are categorized as women from size 8 and above”.
Then I search for this lady who proudly calls herself plus sized: ‘Robyn Lawley’.
Look at her. What part of her says plus? She’s a size all normal women need to be. Which brings me to the next question: Why are women like her called plus sized? They are normal. Shouldn’t the anorexic stick thin models be called minus sized instead?
Moment of self discovery: If she is plus, what size would I be labelled: Macro? Mega? Colossal? (No I am not sharing my picture for reference),
Let’s change the subject.
If you are an internet addict, and not into food porn, you might be one of those above mentioned minus sized people. I was looking a recipe to try for a lazy Sunday and came across an article talking about certain superstitions related to food. Interesting, yes?
Did you know, giving an orange to somebody will make them fall in love with you? If I hand you an orange in the near future, eemmm it will only be because you look starved, honest!
Throwing rice at a newlywed couple will bring them wealth, health and happiness. Uncooked rice that is Not the biryani served at their wedding, which you gave your stomach a premonition of cramps experienced normally during childbirth. (shudder)
Moment of self discovery: I am completely obsessed with food, hence the colossal size.
Makes you wonder doesn’t it.
