Just the other evening, my buddies and I were chatting away the evening hours, we discussed a wide range of topics – from personal encounters to present day politics.
Then, the youngest in our group shot us a question: Did anyone among us ever fight against another for the lady we love? When two men are fighting over a lady, who will be the winner?
There was complete silence as all of us stopped abruptly, looked at each other and suddenly burst out laughing! All of us know each other so well that there is not much of a secret among us that we do not know about each other! We grew up and grow old together – from single-hood to marriage and family. It is our common joke and desire that one day we may become in-laws!
This question really caught us unawares and made us recollect the times when all of us were singles and chasing the girls in our neighbourhood. Did we end up fighting over the lady? The answer was yes and many times! My buddies and their wives know my wife and me and we are friends also before each of us got hooked up! You can say that we are one big family!
On hindsight, I think each of us did and fared very well. The discussion really brought back beautiful memories of yesteryears!
Now, how am I to answer this tough question. I know my buddies will be reading my post and they will wring my neck off if I don’t answer it faithfully and truthfully!
Shall we consider these questions:
1. Is the lady worth fighting for?
2. Who is the other opponent?
3. Why can’t the lady decide for herself? What is her ulterior motive?
4. Are we really interested in the fight or just to satisfy our ego?
5. If there is no opponent, are we still interested in the lady?
LOVE like LIFE is very complex and interesting! When we do not encounter any difficulty or hardship, we will never learn to appreciate and love the things that we have or get. When there is COMPETITION, it acts like spice and makes LIFE/LOVE more interesting!
Well, WHEN TWO MEN ARE FIGHTING OVER A LADY, WHO WILL BE THE WINNER?
The answer is : THE LADY. THE TWO GUYS CAN KILL EACH OTHER FOR ALL SHE CARES! THAT IS HER PLOY! OTHERWISE, SHE HAS TO MAKE UP HER MIND AND DECIDE ONCE AND FOR ALL. ( Then there is no more fun for her!)
