Hey, what kind of title is that above? Why it is about my self, about something ridiculous, am I trying to pour my heart to everyone here? I don’t really think so. But yes, it is about me, about my lacks. 🙂
Is it good to tell? Well, I don’t mean to make my self ashamed actually. I just want to tell you about who I am from the other side. I know that not many people are willing to freely share about themselves in front of the public, especially for something ridiculous like this. However, I just want to suppose and consider this as a kind of challenge.
Isn’t it right that we should be honest if we want to be known by others, not only for something special that we have? For me, as long as it is not breaking the politeness norm, it is just alright to be done. And I also think that it is good if there is no any lie between us.
This time, through this short English post, I’m gonna be telling you 4 ridiculous facts about me in which some of you do not know yet.
#1. I am afraid of syringe needle
I am a man, guys. Can you imagine a man who is afraid of syringe or injection needle? It’s really ridiculous, right? Even my wife wonders knowing that a syringe is something I am afraid of. I do not know why it is so. I forget whether I had bad experience or not in the past. But it surely happens when I have been adult.
Two months ago, I had typhus fever. I had suffered from this illness for about 5 days. I didn’t want to be injected by any nurse or doctor even though my wife had persuaded me. She said that if I wanted to get better soon I had to be injected. But I rejected it. I was so afraid of the injection. I prefer having some medicine to having injection. And thanks to God that I finally got cured from the fever after taking the medicine.
Therefore, every time I suffer from an illness, say fever, I never want to be injected. I prefer some drugs to injection. I would mind to be injected if I really suffer from a very severe illness. Once again, this fact makes my wife and my other family really wonder. They seem to be confused about this kind of fear I have. It sounds ridiculous for them. Don’t you also wonder and feel ridiculous, guys? Or, you are in the same boat with me?
#2. I cannot use chopsticks when eating
I was born in a poor family. Since I was a kid I used to eat using my hand. I didn’t use to eat using any any spoon or fork until I had studied at Senior High School and my family had got better life.
When I was grown up, I know another way of eating; using chopsticks. I know as well that this kind of eating way is a culture from Chinese or Japanese people. To me, it is a unique and great thing. It seems to have a certain philosophy. It is also a good way when eating noodle.
Actually, I really want to be able to eat using chopsticks when eating noodle. They are usually available on the table of every stall I visit. I have been trying to do it again and again, but I always fail at last.
Someday, when I was in Jakarta, I was invited by my friend to have dinner at one of the Japanese restaurants in Tangerang city. To my surprise, no spoon and fork were around the table, except the chopsticks. Oh my God, I was so embarrassed being there with him that I finally (willy-nilly) asked for a spoon and a fork to eat the meal I ordered. 🙂 LOL
Until now I still cannot use any chopsticks when eating. For me, it is very difficult to do. Poor me!! But I still hope I will be able to eat using chopsticks someday. Anyone can help and teach me?
#3. I do not eat any eel.
When I was a kid I used to see my father eating eel as his meals at home, but I knew that my mother did not use to eat any eel. Perhaps, I tend to follow my mom. In my mind, eel is included in the family of snake (although it is not). You know, I’m so fearful of the snake. I hate snake.
That’s why, in spite of the eel is very delicious and nutritious to eat, as many people say, I am still not used to eating it. It is not because of the eel is haram animal or not, but I think that it is just disgusting to eat.
How about you, guys? Do you ever eat any eel?
#4. I often get motion sickness (carsick) when going by car for a long trip
When I was in college, I used to go from my home village to the city where I studied using buses or cars. Of course it was a long trip. It took about 10 hours to arrive. And the saddest experience I ever had on the trip was that I often got motion sickness or carsick. I often vomited on the way. Perhaps my body was not healthy. But surely, it was so painful and embarrassing as well. I hate it.
Consequently, I always take some medicine (antimo) to anticipate my carsick when I was about to go by car for a long trip. But for some opportunites, I still got carsick even though I had taken the medicine. You know, it was so bad and annoying.
Since that time, I hate going by car for a long trip. If I have to choose between car and bus for traveling, I prefer to choose bus to car. And I like to go by motorcycle better than by car or bus.
Toward this ridiculous fact, some people say, including my friends, that I don’t deserve to be a rich person as I always experience carsick when going by car. But they also say that I might not get carsick or motion sickness anymore if I am the driver, not the passenger. Is that really so? Should I try to prove it? Anyone can help me? Or any suggestion for me? I feel so bad. 🙂
Well, guys, those were some ridiculous facts about me. Actually, I was rather embarrassed telling them. But I also do not want to keep them secretly. I prefer if other people know me as who I am. Not only for my potencies or skills, but also my my lacks or weaknesses.
Now, what do you think about me after reading this post? I hope you can understand and help me to cope with that.
Well, that was my story, guys. I have told you already. What about your story? Would you mind sharing yours here? Don’t hesitate to write down your comments below.
