Whoever You Are

It was a typical dormant Sunday morning.Mama asked me to walk Moshi since the drama king was trying his best to make us feel downright guilty for failing to bring him outside last night. I reluctantly obeyed. I hate summer's sweltering heat. My eyes fell momentarily on the brown gate across my house. I felt giddy inside. A month ago, I went outside with Nikki to buy merienda. That was the first time I saw him. Their gate opened. A car entered. I noticed a guy standing outside - the cute resident of No. 8. I elbowed Nikki. She smiled knowingly. She knew my type too well. Saw him twice after that chance "discovery" (discovery that a nice-looking chinito lives nearby...haha!). I silently prayed that I'd see the mystery male again. As if on cue, thir gate opened and out emerged the man-of-the-hour along with an old man (his Dad perhaps). Our eyes met. Cute goatee. I was immediately overcome by shyness. I turned away. The experience was surreal but nice. Definitely NICE. My summer crush...why did you have to appear in my life when I'm about to leave this place I call home soon? Who are you? Well, it won't matter now, will it? Someday, you'll just be a vaguely familiar face in my memory bank. I'll still smile at the thought of this surprise encounter though.

sorry nga pala for the double post. hehe. was so tempted to celebrate the end of surgery tonight. punta ka sa March 22 gimik with the sisses?

pau, it's alright. hehe. not sure about the 22nd. i really want to go though. i'll let you know. you want sabay tayo? :-) by the way, punta na tayo sa gig ni kitchie on the 28th. hopefully, she might sing the song she failed to sing the first time i watched her perform on stage(huwag na huwag mong sasabihin). yikes! this is the longest comment i've ever posted in my blog. hahaha. this is a blog entry in itself. pau, i also successfully delayed my surgery review 2 nights ago. thus, the perceived extremely poor performance in yesterday's exams. right now, i'm trying to make a "comeback" in the med life department. i'm here at the central library, cramming for tomorrow's final exam in community medicine. hope this pays off. hehe. just discovered that there's free internet usage here. whee!

sige sabay tayo. you'd have to wait for me, though. may surgery exam kami kay dr. reyes that day.

ako naman yung hindi sure sa 28th. i'll be in cavite by then at baka walang maghatid sakin dito ng maaga. pero kung finals week ng sister ko sa law, hehehe, e di makakapunta ako! =)
