1081 words - 4 pages

I've watched too many episodes of Sex in the City that somehow my life right now could pass on for an episode of that famous T.V show that all of us went crazy about in the 90's. I hate to admit this but....of all the femme fatales ,in that show that I have the likings to was the single mid 30's heroine, the infamous Sex Columnist of the New York Times who has this fixation for Mahnolo's and Choo's and the "must have accessory every single woman must have" ...BIG!!! (the persona that never seem to leave Carrie Bradshaw's psyche the moment the story-line was conceived by the talented Candace Bushnell).Honestly, I'm not really that crazy about Sex in the City but unfortunately its the only thing I could relate with life right now as if the writer wrote the story for me even before the events happened in my life. If we were to name this episode of that T.V show it would be?." Doug ja Boo? (de ja vu). The plot may not be exactly like Ms.Bradhaws' but here's a gist......an artist working in the accounting department , single -woman in her double 3? and like heroine Carrie ,also have 25+ pair of shoes....and the shadow of " Mr. Big " lurking in the picture.

The ultimate goal was to be faithful and diligent to the challenge and kept dating cool and casual....until "My Big "came along. He hang around and became a buddy. ?My Big" actually lives a very complicated life. Divorced, two teenage kids, an ex-wife glued to the hip ,a middle-aged man with a high corporate profile , relatively anal ,brushed elbows with "power,money driven -superficial aliens - 'pill- popping' and 'shrinks as life-line in order for them to survive in this world " kind-a-people?...so sum it all up he is someone whom we dub as an anxious person. Sarcasm aside, I?m not labeling? My Big" in a derogatory kind of way but just painting a clear picture of the man I love. Justifying who he is and how he morphed into this wonderful and yet complicated being using ?The Socratic Law of Causality" or simply "The Law of Cause and Effect?.
