Girls Talk - Stupid Acts Of Love

Wednesday, February 2, 2011
This is my first for the year for Girls Talk. I have been in hiatus from most memes since I've come back from vacation last month, and still trying to return into the thick of things. Here's hoping I haven't lost my blogging mojo :-)

Today's topic is the stupidest thing I've done for love. I am unsure how to write for this topic as I am pretty sure I've never done anything that stupid for love (wink, wink) other than marry young. And even then, I don't consider it stupid, I was just....ahead of my time. Anyway, I will try and jog my brain and just write about something that comes to mind. Not the stupidest, but it will be close, because I remembered it.


When I was in my late teens, it used to be a long standing joke in my family that the only dish I am able to prepare perfectly was my favourite at the time - fried pork chops. I would salt the meat and deep-fry it in a pan and voila! Instant breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I used to serve this to my old boyfriend. He'd come to the house and would stay over for lunch. I lovingly cooked this food whenever he would come around to visit me each week. And since I didn't know any other, I served this to him. Every. Single. Time.

I think he meant to be kind and so tried to endure eating my pork chops for as long as he could. However, after the fifth consecutive time, the subject did eventually come up that I was cooking only the one dish and it was starting to affect his taste buds. I was embarassed but I had to confess that I did not know how to cook anything else other than frying eggs, boiling water and re-heating already cooked food.

I waited for him to break up with me....

But he obviously did not mind about this little weakness in me because he cooks for me now. He's even taught me a thing or two about some other uncomplicated dishes. I've added stir-fries to my list.

Secretly I think he's probably counting his lucky stars that he was never poisoned while being a test subject to my cooking. And I am equally glad that he survived.

For other stupid acts of love, visit Girls Talk this week.

    that's too cute and funny! well i think it's actually good that you did that because you now know how much torture (LOL!) he is willing to stand just for you ;)

  1. darly said...:

    hey cute story- i think the phrase "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach" doesn't apply to him kasi he'd eat anything you preprare for him. That's real love indeed.

    Happy GT, here's my entry, hope you'd visit back.

    By the way, followed you in GFC :)
