114 days to go

“This getting married thing, it’s weird.”

“Why do you say that?”

“I mean, in a few months time, I’m going to  be a Mrs. I don’t like the word missus. It sounds so matronly. Fat bosom in an unflattering dress matronly. Miss is more feminine.”

“Oh?”

“Like the Malay word for Mrs is Puan. It sounds awful. Cik sounds cute. Puan sounds pregnant.”

“Does this mean you don’t want to get married?”

“Of course not. Don’t be silly. It’s just that I feel, sometimes when a woman marries, she ceases to exist in a way. Mrs Eizwan. Adlina disappears.”

Pause.

“You won’t disappear. I’ll be Mr. Adlina for you.”
