saw this in my email inbox lol 😀
It was jazz an ordinary day.
The skies were clear, the birds were chipping. Ang ganda-ganda ng
araw! Nasa Shoe Mart ako noon at katatapos ko lang mamili ng
groceries. Timing naman nasa foodcore si Angel Locsin, nag pro-
provoke ng movie nya. Grabe, ang daming fans, pull-packed talaga!
Dahil fans nya rin ako, nakipila rin ako.
Then suddenly, out of the loo, may bumulong sa akin
ng: “Indaaaayyyy. …..”
Huh? It sounded like a familiar sound. Who can it be now?
“Dodong!” sigaw ko.
Napalakas yata voice ko. Kasi the other fans turned their backs to
their behind at napatingin sa amin.
Sabi ko, “Sorry, I didn’t mean to be loud and proud.”
Hinawakan na lang ni Dodong ang kamay ko at lumayo kami from the
“Kamusta na Inday? Do you come here open?” tanong nya.
“Bihira lang, Dodong. I’m just droppings by. Ethnic and schedule ko
eh” sabi ko.
Memories came flushing in my mind. How can I forget to remember
Dodong? Siya na may mata ni Piolo, dimple ni Aga, at bigote ni Rex
Cortez. he’s every woman’s dreamboat. I was just starting my tour of
duty kay ate noon nang unang makilala ko si Dodong. Contraction
worker siya sa ginagawang bahay sa tapat namin. Naging kami for a
while then after that were not an item anymore.
“Tanghali na Inday. What did you say we have lunch together?” tanong
“I don’t mine” sagot ko.
Sa restaurant, nilapitan kaagad kami ng waiter.
“What’s your odor sir?” sabi nung waiter kay Dodong.
“Do you have porkshop?” tanong ni Dodong.
“Yes sir” sabi nito. “Our porkshop with a resistance to the teeth of
boast of our chef. Domestic careful selection of pork with little
fat of female liking is used. The exquisite cooking which repeated
trial and error and was completed. it also has healthy vegetables
with salad feeling fully” dagdag niya.
“And you mam?” sabay tingin naman sa akin.
Hmmm… mukhang masarap yung porkshop. Pero I’m cutting down on my
carbon kaya pinigilan ko.
“I’ll just have water, thanks. Liquidate diet ako eh.” sagot ko.
Pagkatapos kumain, nagyaya si Dodong manood ng sine. Teka teka, this
is going too far. Besides, it’s a long, long way to run.
“Reality chess, Dodong. May asawa na ako, si Jay. As a mother of
fact, I’m happily married” pagmamalaki ko. Di na pwede yung tulad ng
dati. Sorry pero I didn’t expect you still have more
feelings than I expected. i don’t want you getting the way. Past is
fast. Therefore, cause and defect.” dagdag ko pa.
Tumahimik sya. Parang may language barrel na namagitan sa amin. The
seconds that passed seemed like fraternity. Di nagla-on, nagsalita
na rin sya.
“I don’t care less!” sigaw ni Dodong.
Shocks, give me a brake! The nerd ng taong ito para sigawan ako! To
think it’s his other woman that caused our separation to part.
Kinabahan na ako. I felt speedbumps all over my body and was having
panic attach. Tinalikuran ko siya at nagmadali akong lumakad palayo.
Pero sumunod pa rin siya like a monkey on my butt. Hanggang sa
makakita ako ng security guard. Biglang nawala si Dodong.
“Excuse me kuya, pwedeng magtanong?” sabi ko sa mamang guard.
“Of course miss, I can help you with my pleasure.” sagot niya.
“Saan po ba ang exit? Could you point me to the right erection? I
got lost in my eyes.”
“Diretso lang.” sabi niya. “Then turn right anytime with care.”
“Thanks for your corporation” sabi ko.
Buti na lang nandun si kuya. Pero saglit lang, I smell something
peachy. As I turned, nakita ko na namang nakasunod si Dodong!
Delaying static lang pala kanina ang pag disappear nya.
“Nyahahaha! You can run but you can hide, Inday. No matter where you
go, there you are!” pananakot nya.
Oh no, is this the end? This is too much, I feel degradable. My
world started falling afar.
Then suddenly, Jay come from behind! Dodong was caught to the act!
In the matter of minute, it’s all over. I’m out of arm’s way.
“Thanks Jay, my love. But how did you?”
bago pa man ako matapos, sabi niya: “I was in the neighborhood. Fans
din ako ni Angel eh. I heard you shout but at first I did not give
it a thought. Pero nang makita ko kayong magkahawak ng holding
hands, then i give it a thought. I know something is a missed.”
From then on, Dodong did not brother me again.
Pero kami ni Jay, heto, shoot sailing pa rin ang relationship. Lalo
pa ngayon, open na kami sa isa’t-isa at walang exhibitions. i feel
I’m on cloud.
