Emotional and All Worked Up

Supposed to go out for lunch with ZZ yesterday but she called at the last minute to cancel. ZZ sounded very harassed and stressed out and when I asked if anything was wrong, she literally shot back, "Can you believe it? 3 of my staff didn't turn up for work today - they called in for emergency leave! Why? I found out that they wanted to stay home and tune in to the live telecast on Siti Nurhaliza and Datuk K! So, I'm left holding the small fort lah. And summore, the office is so freaking busy today!"

Then this afternoon while I was doing some small talk with my client's secretary AA, she let out that she is very, very upset with Siti Nurhaliza. AA said she and her whole family are very loyal fans of the singer until yesterday but not anymore now. She ranted and ranted and I only gave the occasional nod of the head - not that I fully understood what she was talking about but merely to be polite and appear interested in what she had to say. (You see, secretaries are those people in an organization that you wouldn't want to offend. You know what I mean?) So, AA told me that her whole family tore up all the posters in the house, packed up all the tapes, CDs, magazines and memorabilia and had chucked them out unceremoniously at the neigbourhood dumpster.

Wah, these fans can get really, really emotional and all worked up. So much so, that some took emergency leave from work just to hear breaking news of their idol's wedding announcements and others throwing away every shred of momento they had paid good money and collected and cherished all this while. Something like a bad breakup!

P.S.
I saw some of the newspapers carry the wedding announcements as front-page news today. Soooo glamour!
