PDA - Public Display of Affection
PDAs range from a simple peck to a more complex series of actions that increase the body temperature of the individuals involved.
On a particular day, I was on the MRT going home. I was leaning against the glass pane near the door reading the TODAY newspaper. A few stops later there was this couple. The woman leaned against the glass panel while the man faced her. This meant that his back was facing me. I did not take notice of them at first.
I was reading the article on Thailand's coup when suddenly I heard smooching noises. I thought I was in Hollywood. From a serious political situation to a private moment between couples, I dare say that the world is small and unpredictable. I lifted my head to see what happened. The woman saw me and spoke in some language which I did not understand. The man stopped. Did I interupt them? Too bad.
A while later, there was giggling. The man was tickling the woman. Oh man, adults behaving as kids...no wonder they say that there is a kid in everyone of us. I thought it was applicable to adults watching Kids Central, but I guess I was wrong. The woman was like "Stop it...hehe...it tickles...haha." However, the man did not pay any attention to her. He continued tickling. Was it fun? I don't know. I would be irritated if I was the woman and would give him a tight slap for bothering me.
I continued reading TODAY. There was this article on how more women in Tehran (Iran) are going for nose jobs. I read it with interest as I always thought that countries like Iran do not allow such things where women are allowed to follow their Western counterparts. It was then that I heard something. I won't elaborate what I heard as it's something restricted behind close doors. I was surprised! It was in the public! Oh man...kids these days.
I won't continue on lest my post sounds like some dirty story.
While I am not really in favour of PDAs, (call me an old man if you want) I am for couples who are truly in love with each other. I can see that they love each other at that point of time. There was no sea of fire to cross nor a tower to reach the maiden's hair. The simple act of looking at each other's eyes only to bring a smile (which they showed from time to time) really speaks volumes. Ok, I admit, I was looking at them, but hey, it ain't my fault that they were in public right?
I would give it a 5.5/10. Too mushy for my taste.
