I Am Female Hear Me Roar! Or Hear My Thursday Ramblings!

on November 30, 2017

I am female, hear me roar! LOL!

Garfield is a male cat character created by Jim Davis but the name Garfield Hug that I chose for this blog is by a female blogger. I am a loony Garfield fan who loves the inanimate furball Garfield so much that she goes anywhere and everywhere in the world with Garfield in tow!

I love hugging this plush toy as it gives me comfort, just like Linus of Peanuts series who drags a blanket around.

Though I own 475 Garfield plush toys, there is one particular Garfield that is about 1.5 feet in length that I am particularly attached to and has been with me since 1993. It is 24 years old, worn at the paws but like a “son” to me.

I am single, never married but have been in a few relationships that did not work out. The latest is of course with my incorrigible Mr EX (*there is a whole series of posts about him) who can provide both laughter and ulceration at the same time.

Mr Architect and Mr EX are the cause of my loving Garfield.

Mr Architect gave me my first Garfield and I thought nothing of it, except that it stuck onto my windows of my car. It was Mr EX who went overboard with Garfield as he saw that and started wooing me with Garfields.

 It was a bit like Pavlov Dogs’ effect. Each time I saw him, I saw Garfield LOL!

 He would scour the earth and wherever he went, he brought me a Garfield.

In between, he had a competitor, but his competitor, Mr Biz Man, failed to win my heart as he is not as corny or as ridiculous as Mr EX.

Mr EX swears to date that we are soulmates and that if we cannot be together in this lifetime, we will be in the next lifetime. He is welcome to his dreams. As for me, I told him there is never a next lifetime for me as Samsara-wheel of karma is making this my last reincarnation says Guru Me LOL!

I do feel that Mr EX sincerely loves me but circumstances prevent us from being together though our destinies are linked. If I wanted a globe trotter, I would have become a sea farer and leave my heart in every port.

To cut the long story short, Garfield has been loyal to me. He neither pees nor poos and other than tossing him in the washer, he is maintenance free. Plus, he listens to every word that I natter.

So, to clear any confusion, my gender is female and yes, I am told that I write like a man – think like a man and shop like a man! LOL! Being in the corporate world, doing mergers and acquisitions or dealing with evil lords, has crafted me to think like a man to swipe back at their utterances.

If I behaved like a woman all emotional in the corporate world, I will sink and not swim. Many a time, I do want to bawl my eyes out as why are things so tough. But I have learnt that emotional soppiness does not fly in the business world.

Sadly, I make decisions on marriage or relationships like a business person.

Marriage to me is like a business merger.

In this union or merger, I will acquire a person and him, me. 

Our asset are weighed and for good or for bad, the bottom line or top line prevails in terms of conduct, character and how much destruction or good each party has for the other.

I often feel that if I ever got married, I have zero tolerance for non-disclosure. I tend to cut losses very quickly and this does not bode well with marriages as a marriage is eternal with the for good or bad till death does one part! Blah!

I will have no compunction to call off a wedding at the altar though I know how much each will suffer for relatives or friends are gathered. Being Asian, I am not about “face” where it reigns supreme, but rather the utils of continuous trust, love and a good business deal.

Yes, I am woman, hear me roar and for that, I remain single as it is hard to find someone that I can tolerate the nuances (I would also think the other party would feel the same), the habits or true colors of a spouse once we share a dwelling. 

So, till then, Garfield is my solace as he does not back talk nor give me problems. In fact, he has weathered the storms in my life and even braved the threat of being boiled so as to get disinfected and accompany me in ICU.

Yes, I am silly – don’t you think?!

    I admire that you could decide not to go through with a wedding at the altar. Not sure if I could do that. I’m too accommodating for my own good.

    • Garfield Hug says:

      Lol! Mr EXsuffered and so did I. That altar thing is the finale. Yes, I generally hear alot from my friends that marriage is about compromise…accomodating each other etc…very tough and I admire you for your courage to be married. 😃

      • HN says:

        One thing I know about marriage, a day will come when you realized that along with the one you married is a stranger. If you grow to love that stranger too, then you are ok. In that way a love marriage is the same as an arranged marriage.

        • Garfield Hug says:

          Good point HN. I am amazed at how arrange marriages last! The thing is to grow to love…this is sustainable love and not romantic love as the latter dies after the euphoria ends.

  6. And he won’t cost you an arm and a leg in lasagne, eating being the animate Garfield’s hobby.

    You’re lucky your Garfield is low maintenance or you’d be bankrupt.

    I don’t think you’re silly at all! Garfield loves you unquestioningly, doesn’t argue, never talks back, you always know where he is – what’s not to love?!? 😸💕xxx
