Lately and not knowing since when, Iris has been calling me “我的爱人” (My love) instead of my usual nicknames that she has for me.
In return, I call her the same thing too.
When she gets back home from work and opens the door, the first thing I’ll say to her is 我的爱人. If I need to ask her something, I’ll start with..you know..我的爱人. 🙂
Today I was late to work. (I blame it on the rain. Ha!) I slept longer than usual. Had to finish the breakfast which Mummy prepared (I usually would have rushed off with a bun or something if it’s just me). Iris’ car was parked behind mine and so I had to wait for her too. Knowing that I’m late, Iris made a funny face from behind the car and I spotted her from the car mirror. Just her way of delaying me for another 10 seconds for fun.
Then as I was going to reverse, Iris signalled to me again, this time pointing to another direction. Then, I see my mum walking quickly towards my car. I winded down the window.
“Grace, did you bring your keys?”
That is my mum for you. Always worrying about keys and I guess it’s also because I once forgot my keys (but that was just only once) and I was left stranded in front of the house. Had to call a friend to take me out for dinner and kill time before Iris gets home from work.
我的爱人 is working very late lately so the only time I get to see her is at night before I sleep. Hoping to spend some quality time with 我的爱人 this weekend.
