When I go to the beach or the water park and see bodies, male and female alike, thinly clad in their swimming suits moving around, I sometimes wonder why we have sexy models gracing the front pages of magazines when the rest of the world don’t really give a rat’s ass of how we look 🙂 The probability of finding the finely sculpted bodies of these cover girls in the crowd is rather slim, for the bodies you would likely see are obese, wide, skinny, crooked, chubby, disproportionate….. I’m running our of adjectives now 🙂 In short, the crowd reeks with imperfection but I didn’t say that everyone was ugly and beauty was nowhere to be found. In fact you’d be amused to find lots of imperfect, nice looking cuties that will make your day quite interesting 😉
“I suspect the secret of personal attraction is locked up in our unique imperfections, flaws and frailties ” Hugh Mackay
I dislike people who are perfectionists or those that demand perfection when they themselves are far from being perfect. When we like someone from the opposite sex and finally decide to go out with him/her, it would mean that we have finally learned to deal the worst part of his/her imperfections. Our handling of such imperfection could either make or break the relationship. Marilyn Monroe was absolutely spot on when she said “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
“Learning gives us a fuller conviction of the imperfections of our nature; which one would think, might dispose us to modesty” …Jeremy Collier
At our usual cafeteria lunch talk, a colleague of mine mentioned about a friend who had a habit of watching beauty pageants, searching for the woman of her dreams 🙂 His buddy didn’t have the looks of Brad Pitt but had been looking way beyond his league 😆 In the corporate arena, you sometimes wonder if senior managers have an inkling of what modesty means, when they are so unequivocal with their mandates, demanding results to be no less than perfect. In matters of relationship, the intense friction of egos are the result of the lack of modesty, of understanding one’s own imperfections. As one saying goes, “when you work on your own life, you are less likely to hyper focus on the imperfections of your spouse”.. Martha Quinn
WHY PACQUIAO SUED THE MAYWEATHERS
The A-side meth is what they used to have 500 years ago. Remember when the Philippines were fighting the US soldiers? They were shooting them motherf****s with 45s. And 45s were bouncing off their motherf****ng a$$. They weren’t even dying!”
That’s Roger Mayweather, uncle and trainer of Floyd Mayweather, Jr. on his expert analysis of where Manny Pacquiao’s exceptional prowess comes from. First of all, if A-side meth was invented by Pinoys 500 years ago, Pacquiao wouldn’t be the only Pinoy to get the 7 weight class championship belts 🙂 Secondly, the anachronism is plain horrible. The Americans invaded the Philippines in the 1800’s and not the 1500’s. Thirdly, if the Pinoy soldiers weren’t dying with the .45 cal bullets, then the Yanks must have been shooting at vampires. Roger Mayweather had been watching too much vampire movies lately 🙂
Never mind Roger’s tall tale. I wonder – when did this Pacquiao steroids allegation start floating around ? I suspect it originated from Floyd Mayweather Sr. then trainer of Ricky Hatton who was too embarrassed to answer questions as to why his man was decked and put to sleep by Pacquiao in the 2nd round. The steroids allegation was a perfect alibi – yep, Pacquiao had an illegal secret weapon that nullified all the moves and tricks he taught Hatton.
Let me cut this short. If the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight ever happens and I hope it does, and Pacquiao becomes the underdog, methinks he would be the best underdog ever in the sport of boxing. Fans are so gung ho about Mayweather defeating aging fighters – Marquez (36) and Mosely (38) , both wins coming via decisions making him the favorite, diminishing the Pacman’s impressive string of knockout wins over the last 2 years. Let’s get it on. I hope the fight happens… and soon.
