Snippets from high-flying lives

I spent this evening at the poolside (the pool of which has ‘underwater music’) of the swanky serviced apartment complex called ‘Orchard Parksuites’ because a high-flyer uni-mate was back in town for work and for to meet up with some of her treetop-skimming uni-mates.

It is a reflex assumption that money is no matter to these high-flying, high-living uni-mates. But of course, that is not true. They have money issues too, just that the decimal point is usually further to the right of the figures we throw about. But still, I have not felt so comparatively poor in a while.

Then they spoke about mothers-in-law, and how horrible they were. Then they spoke of how marriages between some of our uni-mates had ended before they actually began. Then they spoke about children, and babies, and how it was read somewhere that you can lactate even if you’re not a mother or an expectant mother.

And I’m sitting here wondering if they still wonder why I’m always the one contributing totally incongruent conversation topics.


Gotta add some swank to my income

  1. It IS true that some women lactate even when they’re not pregnant or breastfeeding. It’s due to a hormonal imbalance, and the medical term for it is galactorea (not sure if I spelt it right, but that’s how it’s pronounced, so I’m just going by phonics here).

    How do I know? My pal happened to have this condition and I happened to accompany her to the gynae to get it checked. There, now, file it away mentally! New thing learned today!
