"you're next"

ever since my brother got married a couple of years ago, i became the only single member in my family. family friends and relatives, especially the female oldies, made it their mission in life to ask me when would i be next. they would ask me at the most inopportune times, be it in a party, a wedding, a funeral, or in the mall. my answers would vary, depending on my mood...

"secret" then leave with a smile.

"never!" ... seldom used coz this would just start another round of questions.

"when i win in the lotto, i'd buy a husband." ... after hearing this, they'd usually smile then shake their heads.

"i'm still saving money to buy one." ... same reaction as the previous one.

"next year!" ... this answer usually shut them up.

but right now, i'm thinking of adding another answer to my repertoire after J forwarded an email message to me...


Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs and cackling, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.

i think, this is the best one yet!

Lois Lane: it's either sink or swim. i just have to make a quick comeback or else they'll eat me alive.

silvermoon: i still haven't got the chance to say "you're next" though. maybe on the next party or funeral...;-)

jayred: thanks! =)

f.r.i.e.d.w.a.t.e.r.: kakaloka mga usapang ganyan no? oh well, bahala sila! hehehe
