Faithful [In her Hair].

So I got wife this barrette (hair clip) that I found in an antique Chinese shop. There were but a handful of those clips, and they looked really nice and fancy; they were handmade. I found the one I like and as I was reaching to grab it, the old lady that keeps the shop said:

- each one have meaning... which you want?
- I like this one, I said. What does it mean?
- Oooh, this one good. This one mean good! You take!
- What does it mean?
- Faithful! she shouted... Means faithful.
Fidelité in french hahahahah. She laughed at her French tentative.

And I thought PERFECT! It will look beautiful holding baby's beautiful night colored hair, and the interpretation is every man's desire and wish of course.

I ran back home ecstatic and exited, and played with wife the "guess-what-did-I-get-you-game". After 15mns of torment and playfulness, I offered the clip to her, holding it in my two straightened arms. Stretched like that in front of my chest.
It means faithful... I whispered softly.
She smiled, habibi she said, took it, gave me a kiss, and lifted it up to her hair.

As soon as the clip touched her hair, it broke in two.

The barrette you see in the picture above, is the second one I got. I had to go back and get her another one!
Faithful means Faithful!

Ain't that always the way?! Glad you could get another...

At 10:13 AM, Blogger _z. said...

I didn't think anything... this is why I asked :P
yeah I had to pay for the second one... they were not that expensive anyway.
the clip could not resist what the hair was saying, it's not the vendor's fault... hair too strong!

You had me go all gooey inside there for a while: the devoted husband who brings his beloved wife an unexpected gift; the inner meaning of the gift; the cosy domesticity of husband and wife playing together... and then... wham! You pulled the rug from under my feet! Haha! Excellent post, mate!

Faithful... a trait of a scorpio... hes not afraid to be faithful, it's the hair's faithfulness hes seeking.. just want reassurance so he can tone down his possessiveness..

The cip is beautiful z

Mr Z from Mr Zee:
Anybody know of Mirvats whereabouts?
Maybe Mar can help as well!
I tried to call her the other day and her cell was disconnected. Then I e-mailed without having sucess,. Tried both the *edu and the other address. Hope she is doing all right, must be in Leb somewhere.
Let me know anything through the e-mail on my profile.
Thanks a million, Zee
