Yes, it is Hantu's day, at my expense! Dang! Methinks the skinny-dip at Magick River was not long enough. Sometime early next week, and I have invited d'Nightcaller.
Last week at Sid's after endless "one for the road" Guiness Draft, Hantu A (A not as in A1 as he claims that this numerical 1 has been prostituted no end....for Hantu, A is for Archimedes the Owl)
told me of the possibility of Zahrain and Zul Nordin escorting Jibby to US Congress. I said Zahrain maybe but not Zul as he had already accompanied Nazri to the closed door meeting in Washington. "Everything comes in pairs lah....Wee Choo Keong went to UN and Washington what?" he assured me. I told him that Nibong Tebal Teo should get a chance to walk in the shadow of the big Mama or the other guy Moshien (I dont even remember this yahoo). Hantu was silent over Teo but dismissed the Moshien guy whom he considers too dumb, even to follow the group. I said: "OK a bet. I say Zahrain and Teo." Hantu countered, "Zahrain and Zul, Guiness till I drop with Pig In Blanket in between and if I am not cruel, a ploughman that you can share." I wanted to play safe and suggested another bet, "Maybe Zahrain and Ibrahim Ali." Hantu eyeballed me and said: "Jibby is not mad yet and you are pissed!" First bet holds.
People, I lost the BET and he insisted I post this: (full volume and big screen please, he insisted!) Ok, I lose honorably.....here it is, go ahead and laugh....even at me. It is all right, laughing is good medicine.
