Musings about face value.

My boyfriend is fiddling with the living room’s computer, which is connected to our television. I kept asking him what he’s doing, he won’t tell me. I whined. He feigned disinterest. Of course, I’m secretly impressed. I always am.

If people have ulterior motives, they would start smelling like a soiled pair of socks or something. Unfortunately, everything in life is more than just face value. There are always more, whether it’s good or bad. Ultimately, it’s all down to whether one is willing to find out more. You know, check for credibility, maybe do some experiments, ask around a bit, the works. But nah, man being man has this thing called ego constantly fogging their brains a bit.
