The other day, just as I was preparing my mind for work, I got a call from the office requesting that I take the day off and swap it for a weekend.
I happily accepted. I then informed my right-hand friend, the woman in my house, that I would be spending the whole day at home.
I took advantage of the day, since I was doing a few renovations at home. There were many things to catch up with: damaged and blocked pipes, changing tiles to a colour that she wanted, and setting up her new kitchen because she just felt like making some changes.
All my focus was on studying the price quotes given by the contractor. I was quiet and concentrating when, suddenly, she came in with a fly swatter in her hand. I then diverted my attention to see what she was up to and alas, she killed the fly.
I thought things had ended, but she drew closer to me and said,
"You know what? I'm not good at targets, but one thing I'm confident in, is that with the fly swatter, I never miss a fly. Do you think I'm gifted, or is it the effectiveness of the fly swatter?"
I was lost; the response didn't come in handy, but I told her, it's her, who's gifted with talent of target. If I had said otherwise, she wouldn't feel like a winner.
However, no matter how supportive I got of her, she suddenly smiled at me and made squinted eyes to make her face look funny, then told me, 'my comment was not genuine.'
Being lost, I tried to remember which comment I had made, but she reminded me that it was about her target of effectiveness.
By now, I felt so confused. If I had told her the truth, she would have said it wasn't genuine, and if I had told a white lie, she would have complained. That's her...
My dear readers, what would you have done?
