Living in the city, you can get easily under people’s noses...
Evening view of the Petronas Twin Towers. Eighty-eight stories high, it is one of the tallest buildings in the world
My wife and I was walking back to our car at the basement of the Petronas Twin Towers. I was absent-mindedly reading some brochures about mobile broadband when Nooreha asked,“have you got the keys?”
I said no, she said yes. As I went to the passenger side of the brown Perodua MyVi , I heard the doors click to unlock.
“There, you see, the car keys are with you!” I opened the door, bent down to move aside a magazine from the seat, then sat down.
“Hello!… Excuse me!” said someone who had come in at the drivers seat. I looked up from the brochures and saw a Chinese lady who was definitely not my wife. Stumped, I could only blurt out: “Hey! Where’s my wife?”
Nooreha in fact was standing in front of the car, looking back at me. I made a quick exit, too embarassed to even say sorry. Her car, in fact, was two rows ahead. We were laughing out loud the next half an hour.
“Keep up your absent-minded ways and one day you’ll get a slap on your face” , my wife warned me.
About that she is right. (But it also turned out she had the keys...)
