At times when I'm crafting my works, Diam-Diam will slide her chair beside me. Looking at the stuffs that I'm doing. Occasionally, asked how it goes. The progress and all lah. The longer she's there, the more excited she'll become.
Excitements include, but not least to things like, suggesting colours for the design, directing the placement of copy and images. Re-suggest new colours to replace the previous said ones. Re-directing new copy and image placements to replace the... yup... previous said ones. Oh, she grabbed my mouse once and did the changes when I don't listen to her...
One night when I'm about to finish up, she rushed me to print them out. I went to the printer and waited. Brought it back over to my desk. And looked through before showing them to Shades. But, I showed it to her first...
"Mmm (nodding, short pause)... Keep it up!"
"(Stare at her, short pause)... Since when you're an art director ar? Specifically my art director?"
"hAhAhAhAhAha... No lah... Same team mah!"
It happened a few times already.
I'm not insulted, really. In fact, it's kinda cute.
Imagine. I've been staring and crafting the same ads / designs for days around the clock. How alert is my brain? I'm mentally exhausted. I'm in need of a bed. Been stuffing nicks non stop. Even coffees are tasteless. I can't even think straight anymore. An extra eye really help.
Ever since, it has become an inside joke of us.
