Just got into another self-date. It was a movie marathon, just 2 though. Very contrasting ones, one was Paranormal Activity and the other, Petrang Kabayo. It was nice. I was scared and I had some laughs. The moment I’m writing this entry, I’m dining in a nearby fast-food resto on my phone, I really don’t mind me being alone, though there are some whereabouts of ‘aloneliness’. It’s almost Halloween and lots of people are going home to their own provinces, it’s really nice to see and watch people as I dine out. Traffic is heavy too.
I remember when Juan dela Cruz, the blogger, his partner and I were dining. I don’t know if noticed it, while we were talking, I keep on staring at the window hoping to see someone I know.. Pak! There was one…
His name was R.G, my first crush dated way back first year college, around 2003 perhaps. It was a kilig moment when we met. A relative of mine is an engineering subject professor in one of the most famous engineering schools in the country, of course, I’m also a student. Relative was not able to attend to class to conduct the exam, so I assumed the place. It’s alright though since his co-professors know me that much. I conducted the exam and saw R.G. His cute, wearing a cap and it seemed he wasn’t prepared for the exam. Ok, the papers were given, the graduating class took the exam, I was 1st yr then, and tried to stare at him. He seemed to notice it so he stared back till the time runned out and everbody walked home. He was left behind, approached me and asked if we can be friends.. He took my number and off we go. Long exchange of messages revealed that he was a commercial model and seen in some ads. Maybe he’s bluffing, I checked it out and yeah.. He really was. With some billboards and tv ads. His Hugo Boss quenched hands and that so neat look really dragged me.. He graduated, I continued my engineering course and the communication was gone. It was like a gradient, slowly faded out. Well, when I saw him again couple of weeks ago.. He’s still cute. Remembering the old days.
Maybe, JDC is right.. I must stop being choosy.
