It’s Friday tomorrow and I am supposed to be feeling ecstatic. It’s a time where I will pen my usual Friday Frolics. Not today though. Somehow, today I feel rather disturbed. No, I am feeling disturbed not because bloggers are getting arrested, or some sex scandal has blown out of proportion in the blogosphere, or sodomy-story that is going around. No, it’s not that.
My mind brings me to the life of this person, this doctor. I wonder what goes through his mind that day. It was probably just another day… waking up next to his loved ones, brushed his teeth and had his breakfast. Maybe he then waved goodbye to his loved ones and then head to work.
It was probably just another day of work for this doctor. However, that day was different. That day probably changed his life. That day, a young man came with a complaint about his asshole. Did the young man choose to arrive at this doctor’s examination room? Probably not. Some will call it fate, some will call it God’s will.
It was not a special asshole. In fact, it’s just an ordinary asshole, one that you and I have… eerrrrr… unless of course, you have lost a sense of preference. Anyway, it was just an ordinary healthy asshole that thus, the doctor made a certification that it was a healthy asshole.
Though it was an ordinary asshole, that particular one made a big difference in this doctor’s life. Suddenly, his name was printed all over the place. Suddenly, his report was circulating all over the place. Suddenly, police were all over him. And now, he has gone into hiding.
For that, I am disturbed. Why?… because it was just an ordinary day for him. Unlike the other infamous personality who has also gone hiding, he did not choose to get involve. And again, the asshole did not choose to be seen by him. But things happen. Life as they say, took a twist. And for that, lives are changed.
I am not a doctor but yet, I am fearful. What if it was also just an ordinary day for me but someone came and asked me to certify on something just because I happened to be there? And somehow, this certification is part of something big? Will I need to go into hiding too? And could it also happen to you, or your bf, or your gf, or your neighbour's dog's breeding partner's owner, or your friend's friend's one night stand partner's bf's sister's husband? Who knows?
It was just an ordinary day for that doctor. He did not choose to get involve, but he is now involved. All of us, as ordinary people with ordinary days, with our ordinary jobs… how confident are we that we will not end up in an extraordinary circumstance?
I am very disturbed. Are you?
