Something yucky, this way comes

Posted: January 5, 2009 in Uncategorized

‘Eeya!’ : somehow, despite its similar meaning, sounds more effective than the ordinary ‘ew’ or ‘yuck’.

I was walking down that Gangarama place near work today, watching the city evening buzz with activity: bus horns, whistles, chatter, tuk-tuk motors, and took a seat at a bus stand, turning to look at the river on the other side of the street.

Quite content at quietly watching the leaves of some large tree in the distance rustle in the warm breeze, I almost puked out breakfast at what I saw next close-by.

These specimens are often seen lurking in and about Galle Face and other similar beaches and I like to refer to them as Umbrella-cases. I think you know what I’m talking about if you live on this pretty island. Can someone please say ‘ew get a room’?

Only thing different was, this couple didn’t even bother with an umbrella. Alright, it’s fine that you love someone so much that you occasionally forget who’s watching. Or that you like holding hands with your loved ones or whatever, that’s great.
But dude, groping and making-out in public where little children and people who’ve just had breakfast are free to roam, is a definite absolute teeth-grinding NO.

How revoltingly tragic is it, when I can’t take a stroll through a beach or a park, without worrying about my eyes resting on some hormonally overfuelled couple ‘being intimate’ popping out unawares from some bush? I’m sure hundreds of school kids pass Gangarama all the time, what if one of them had to watch Mister and Missis Gropey on their way home?

Screw that. I don’t really even care about the school kids. These people just really gross me the hell out. Eeya!

    Don’t blame them, blame society. Im sure they meet up very rarely that when they DO, they are fueled up with emotions. It’s natural that they forget where they are and who’s looking because to them, as long as they are AWAY from home and relations, everything’s fine.Anyways, if the same thing happened in a Western country, people wouldn’t even bother looking. So think of it like that. Just ignore.After all, what they are doing isn’t really illegal.

    Illegal schmillegal. In my opinion, anything that makes one want to regurgitate food is a pain in the ass. 😛

    I’ve seen my fair share of em… but, considering the social and financial restrictions one faces, i guess some people have to resort to public places of affection.We live in a backward country, so your probably gonna be seeing lots more smooches and whatnot for a while 😛

    @ Anonymous – Didn’t say they’re the scum of the earth or anything, they just gross me out in particular. :/ I still go ‘eeya’ for kissy scenes on TV, so it’s just me. 😀
