my bestfriend and my worst enemy. the universe has done everything to warn us both that this idea is just absurd and idiotic to some extent, but we are just handsdown the most persistent bestfriends tandem in the world… on second thought maybe we were just really dumb!
he is the most “steady” person i know. we’ve seen each other through break-ups, deaths, resignations, promotions, disappointments and dream come true’s. i was a nutcase through most of them while he was just… steady! unlike i who would cry at just about anything, he’s shed very little tears in this lifetime, and whenever he does he does it by himself. but he allowed me to see him though that – twice, and for that i love and respect him more.
we argue at just about everything. you see, mr.toughlove here keeps telling me that it’s just his way of expressing his love for me while i being ms.emotional is just about ready to sulk at everything he does. i call him scrat coz he looks like scrat (although scrat is way more adorable) while he calls me lisa simpson (the smart, kind-hearted, emotional kid that bart likes to pester – at sya daw si bart). pinning each other down is just so fun, we have agreed to argue for the rest of our lives.
classic yung away namin while waiting for a cab back to work after having dinner at rufo’s. being a freak este a clean freak, he didn’t want to flag down a cab unless it’s a brand new altis. we were doing what we do best while waiting for that type of cab that comes far between – pestering each other when suddenly…
LISA Simpson: “hmp. ayaw na kita makita”
SCRAT: “sige nga ulitin mo nga ng 3 beses” (with a mocking tone)
LISA Simpson: “ayaw na kita makita, ayaw na kita makita, ayaw na makita”
SCRAT: (silence with matching deadma)
LISA Simpson: huy, joke lang. peace na tayo (in a worried tone)
SCRAT: even more silence and even more deadma. sabay para ng cab (which isn’t even an altis). “boss sa allied bank po” (while i’m sliding on the backseat to give him space to sit).
“BLAG” (says the cab door).
LISA Simpson: (opens the door) di ka ba sasabay?
SCRAT: “mauna ka na” …. “BLAG” (says the cab door again)
“ma’am di po ba sasabay ung boyfriend mong Hapon?” (says the clueless and nosy cab driver)
LISA Simpson: “hindi po Hapon yun, at lalong hindi ko po boyfriend yun!”
as of 2.08.09 – John Paolo Manalo, this is the longest that we’ve been mgkaaway. Peace na tayo!
