LorBert Series (Supplement) - Topper & The Sweet Barracuda

Sorry folks, no story here in case you are expecting one.

Jasmine was sharp-eyed to have noticed that I added an additional "mishap" of my own when in fact it was the omission of one of somebody else's.

Topper has been a long time friend from way back since secondary school days. We were tight and has always supported each other through the thicks and thins of our lives. We went through a lot of crazy stuff together, from crash-and-burns trying to pick up girls, to picking up his first pager. From ruining his guitar while dressed as a woman, by setting it on fire, to ruining my car's paint job with crap quality stickers that wouldn't peel off. Yup. We were there.

Between Topper & I, he was definitely the stronger person for he rode the emotional roller coaster from start to finish while I couldn't even finish writing his story here. Quite ironic considering the fact that it was his sad story and not mine.

Anyway, Topper is happily married (to a wonderful woman, if I may add) but I felt nonetheless that the Sweet Barracuda may have left a permanent scar in some small corner of his heart.

Song that triggered my memory of her each and every time? Love Song For A Vampire - Annie Lennox.

Jaslyn: That picture took me almost half an hour to find.
If only I remembered that it was called the Motorola Bravo Plus. It would have saved me 28 minutes of searching....

OMG, I used to carry one of those when I was "on call" for ex-OUB. The bank was too cheap to get us those mini alphanumeric ones. It used to scare me to death when it vibrated on a hard table top in the middle of the night.

PS: Orh, you married, OK lor, I shall "save" my cousin Lynn for some other lucky single guys! :D

Lynne: The only gripe with the stoopid numeric pager is that some idiot friend will page me and then leave me his own pager number. Arrrgghhh.... 

p.s. Yup. Whoever the guy you are saving for will be one heck of a happy bloke. That I have absolutely no doubt.
