Stress-related blindness??

Last Monday, my hubby told me about a rather strange email he had received from a very good friend of his. He deemed it strange because although my hubby and this friend of his get along really really well, he couldn’t, for the life of him, understand why that email was sent.

The email went something like this:

Subject: I will be busy this week

I will be busy the whole of this week because I have to host my friend Lewis on his 2nd trip to KL

And attached in the email was the following picture:

I, too, thought it was a rather odd email but we figured that our friend was just up to one of his crazy antics again.

It wasn’t till the next morning, just before I dropped my hubby off at work, that it suddenly hit me… that Lewis in the photo bore a striking resemblance to Mr Lewis Hamilton!! With the Formula 1 hitting Malaysian shores this weekend in Sepang, everything suddenly made perfect sense! That email must have been a bragging tool for my hubby’s friend! D’oh!

It’s a wonder why and how we didn’t realize it when we saw the picture…turns out that our friend actually met Lewis in the same plane and of course, who wouldn’t ask for a photo, eh?  He says that Lewis is a really polite and soft-spoken guy.

So there you have it…a truly “duh”-fying moment brought to you courtesy of The Giddy Tigers. Over and out.

Have a blessed Good Friday, everyone!

    roflol! You know, I’d not have recognised Lewis Hamilton even if I was sitting right next to him on the plane! 😛

    The Giddy Tigress says: Maybe you would if you kept hearing the flight attendant call him by name!

  10. On another topic, related to your subject. Stress on some serious cases can really cause blindness! Nerves above the optic nerve could swell up and block the optic nerve or something like that. That information was brand new to me too – last night we have a visitor (a friend of family) who met someone who had that condition. 🙂

    Another topic, related to your content. Lewis is such a cute hunk!

    The Giddy Tigress says: Thanks for the eye-opening info. 🙂

    Your friend is certainly lucky! Haha. But I wouldn’t have sent such a cleverly worded email. I would just scream in the email title: I took a photo with Lewis! Lawl.

    On the subnote below, I’m sorry the Sunday results weren’t *super* for you, but I read that Collin’s papa was very happy with the result? *wink*

    The Giddy Tigress says: You would have done that if you had taken a picture with Lewis, huh? Still not talking about the results….boo!

  12. wuching says:

    The Giddy Tigress says: Of course! Why not? *grins*…not that I go to the airport that often anyhow…

  13. narrowband says:

    ZOMG Lewis Hamilton!!!!! Your hubby’s friend was very lucky! I wish I could have a photo with that guy! He’s only a year younger than me and he’s super talented and rich… Oh boy what am I doing here right now.. -_-”

    The Giddy Tigress says: Errmmm…you could take my photo and photoshop it with your face! 😀
