Return of the Karma Chameleons

If you have sufficient karma buildup, it's just a matter of time before the foundations of the karmic universe crack open and a little geyser spits something back out.

Stepped out of the lift this afternoon and almost walked right into a familiar face. Where have I seen this person before. 2 seconds later, I realised that he was a termination case. We acted for his employer in terminating his employment. And that was the one where the employer hired us to deliver the bad news instead of doing it themselves. And who be the harbinger of the bad news? Yours truly.

I'm very glad and relieved to see he has found another job. And if his employer can afford the rent at Suntec, then he's obviously not scraping the bottom of the barrel!

Another couple of steps out of the glass doors and I see another familiar face. Where have I seen that face before? Oh yes, when we were all 17 years old and just about to assist Pizza Hut in its attempt to make the largest pizza in the world (a feat which did in fact make it into the Guinness Book of Records in June 1990, registering a diameter of 33.9 metres. The record stood for less than 6 months before it was beaten in South Africa).

I was one of the people assigned to throw meat on the giant pizza. I think he was throwing cheese on the pizza. We were introduced by a mutual friend and went out for one solitary date before I saw him scarfing down stale biscuits at the Pizza Hut reception like they was going out of style and decided he was not the man for me.

It's one thing to eat a stale biscuit. It's another thing to be stuffing your face with them like there's no tomorrow. Our mutual friend tried to intervene ("You can't judge a man by his biscuit!") but it was too late.

"You can't judge a man by his biscuit!", seems as good a way as any to make a judgement call on a man...hell, I have made shallower judgements in the halls of my dating past...so why not a biscuit? ~lol~

you can't judge a man by his biscuit

oh mymymymymymymymymymymymymy, if that's NOT the funniest thing I hear this week it's going to be a brilliant week for humour...

That could have been an all-time Seinfeld classic - imagine Elaine horrified at seeing some date scoffing the biscuits down, and George saying "you can't judge a man by his bisuit."

Or George scoffing down the biscuits and Kramer and Jerry defending him against the date and Elaine.

LMD: That's just gross. Gross!!!! GROSS !!!!!! Arrggghhgh. Can't get the imagery out of my mind!!!!
A CK model once told me that you are what you eat, and then went on to elaborate that a man's sperm will taste a lot like what he eats.

I asked him. What do YOU eat? He said he eats lots of egg whites.

I thought it was a global thing - when a girl is out there trying to get a date, she will generally meet a lot of strange men.

Indy, I'd love to hear something shallower. Please indulge me.

Science Meets Humanity: When are you back?
