My friends got brainwashed by ALIENS!

No kidding. They really got brainwashed by E.T. so much so that they start talking in strange languages that Supergirlfriend does not understand!

Ever had those moments when you get lost in the conversation with your friends? Not having understood what the heck they are bitching abt?

Well, I've had those moments recently. 4 friends. 4 different occupations. One's an engineer, the other's a jr. pharmacist, and the other two, a medical sales rep and an IT helpdesk exec respectively. Supergirlfriend is of course in the language line, a writer - the most artistic of them all. :p

I can understand the pharmacist and the medical sales rep speaking on the same channel since they are afterall working in the medic line. And of course the engineer who grew up with a nurse mummy would understand something besides knowing that Panadol is paracetamol. And of course the IT helpdesk exec would also understand a little because they all work in the same town and hang out together every week.

Which leaves the Supergirlfriend in the most isolated profession of them all. What the heck are they talking about? Stop using medical jargons when you're talking, girls. I know my W.B. Yeats and T.S. Eliot but what's up with all those medical terms? You won't appreciate me talking all Shakespearean to you too right?

Sigh. Just talk like normal friends, for goodness sake. Forget about E.T.!
