Once upon a time in a small town somewhere in the state of Sarawak, East Malaysia. A pregnant wife suddenly woke up in the middle of the night (around midnight I was told) and was very angry and throwing a lot of tantrums, demanded the husband to immediately go and buy some yummy crabs for her to eat (yeap, a crabby craving), and out he went.
However, most of the restaurants that served crabs are usually closed at such ungodly hour and tried as he did, he just could not find a single yummy crab selling restaurant that was still open.
The husband was determined not to return empty handed (for the sake of his own life), so he did the only thing he could do at that point in time, which was to CROSS TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RIVER to try his luck.
He was lucky to find a place that sells yummy crab, but by the time he reached home, it was already about 4am in the morning!! I just hoped, for his sake, that the wife wasn't too cross about eating cold yummy crab for (very) early breakfast LOL!!
Story No. 2 - A tarty craving??!!
Ok, before you start to wonder what do I mean by tarty, it's actually related to edible tarts.
One fine, and very busy (for the husband) afternoon, a pregnant wife suddenly developed a very strong craving for egg tarts. So even though the husband was busy, he decided to go and buy some egg tarts for his lovely wife.
When he reached home, the wife said that the tarts were cold, and she was in no mood to eat cold tarts. So she insisted that he goes out to buy her some hot yummy egg tarts.
The couple was actually our relatives and this was related to us by our cousin sister (another relative). She was furious and thought that the wife was a really mean and terrible person.
Of course this cousin sister wasn't married and was never pregnant (she was only in her early 20s), so how is she to know what others' going through during their pregnancy? But then again, who am I to say that I know what being pregnant is like? After all, I AM A GUY!!!
Please Share: I would love to hear from you, about your experiences with cravings. Were the wives from the crabby and tarty stories behaving badly? Are they being too extreme and too hard on their husband? Can you and is it possible to actually control your cravings? Do you have a similar, or maybe even a more extreme story to tell? Please please tell me!! Me wants to know. :)
