Matchmaker In The Making!
I opened my phone and read the text messages, one came from my mom. She's asking about my email address. She said she will give it to someone, I thought its about work or some paper work that she needs to send me, that's why without any question, I keyed in my ad and sent it to her.
After a while, my phone rang. Its her.
Mom:" Your email address is weird. Where did you get that?!"
Me:" I'm creative, you know!"
Mom: "I asked about your email, because I have one student at our ballroom class and he wants to know you..."
I got confused what she meant at first. "Wait, wait, slow down, what do you mean mother?!"
Mom: "well, he's gay and I talked about you, and he said he wanted to know you, and I promised him I will give him your email, and he said, he wants to chat with you some time".
I was in a shock! Is this really my mom I'm talking to???? I mean we never talk about my sexuality ever. As in for me, what you see is what you get with regards to my folks. But I'm pretty sure they knew already, but this is the first time, my mom, in reality showed me how she already embraced my true personality.
I suddenly wanna cry...
and laugh too! Imagine, my mom is hooking me up with some gay guy at Dubai!!!hahahaha. I composed my self and answered her on the phone. "so what about this gay guy? how old is he?"
Mom: "He's 34 and very much single. He's also looking for some special guy"
Me:" OK mom, you have my blessings, give him my email ad!" LOL
I suddenly felt very light and happy. I love my mom! Soon she'll be joining me here at Doha, hope I could get her a job and a nice place to stay. If not, she have to bear the thought of going back to my Dad back home! too bad for her! *Toinks!*
Note: Mom and Dad are not on good terms. In my mom's mind, they're separated already, but dad still on denial.
