What now?

One day you find yourself seated in front of your computer.

And you realised that you're turning 24.

3 years since you've celebrated adulthood.

And you wonder.. what have you accomplished?

For you have nothing.

Day after day, you delude yourself that there is a greater cause in your life. And yet, soon you lose faith in your belief. Soon, of cos, soon. Soon you realise that the numbness wears off, and you're left with an unbearable ache. The tingling feeling soon evolves into something more, slowly, yet surely, engulfing you. And you recall that line in Robin Hood, its called "carving the heart out with a spoon". Why the spoon? Because it's blunt. It hurts. It's slow. It's painful.

That's why.

Because you're no better where you started from.

Then you ask yourself. What now?

One way or another, you have to find yourself back to the field. Because the next game is coming. And you're not allowed to miss it. Can you miss it? Can you?

Are you a quitter? It takes courage to quit.

What now?

You need some faith.

Clock's ticking.

Do you even know what you want?

actually I stay in a HDB, so I can only take 1 pet. (bla bla bla)
If you do not mind me asking, it is apparent that you care a lot about your pets. Why is it that you are giving them up for adoption?

Thanks for the reply, I am located choa chu kang in aand i can see from the way your home is equipped it will be very comfortable for these pets to live with u I am glad u have experience in pets and how you have promissed to treat this pet and that is the main reason why i have accepted to give this pets to u. I am located in choa chu kang and it is a far way from you but i know a safe means of transportation here in choa chu kang that transports pets all over the world in a very comfortable and safe way if u can agree to my terms to pay for the transportation to the Pet Transport Agency then it will be fine for me if u are still interested in the pets then what we are going to do is that i will place the pets on board to this pet transport agency then they gonna deliver the pets to you at your door step after you have paid for the transportation if u are fine with that then u are going to give me the following information about

ufull names..............

home address..................

state (city)........................(city????)

phone number.................

zip code................... (zip code???)

this information will help in locating you so that the puppies can be dropped at ur door step ,i know that if it is for the both to be transported it wount cost more than$500 but if it is one it will cost like$250(kill people put fire ar... cab only SGD 50)you know i really love this puppies and i just give my trust to you and please do not fail me on using this puppies for breeding or as a guard but only as a pet.and remember to send me upgrade pics of her thanks

(zip code in SG? smart ass)

(trying to ascertain his stupidity)

Well, I am willing to pay an adoption fee to you instead. Perhaps we can save on the transportation if we do a meet up. I would also appreciate it if you can send me a photo, and give me more details about the pet.
