A Cello’s Story

It was the one of the girl’s days when she had extra money from work to treat her boyfriend, whom she haven’t seen for a while now. Well, they really didn’t impose rules about who treats who; it just so happened that this day, the boy had no money and the girl had some. 

Cello’s was one of those places where they could bond and talk with great ambience, food, and coffee, and so it was natural that they stay there. As usual, they ordered the half-dozen set (chocolate, choco-mint, oreo, cheese, cinnamon crunch, and double chocolate) and two Cafe Lattes.

The boy was his usual shy self. The girl knew that. He was too shy to ask service people for anything. Rodics, Jollibee, and now Cello’s. Sadly, he wanted to use a fork to eat the donuts. Sosi kasi eh. 
“Go on, ask,” the girl said, making hand gestures pushing the guy away from the table. Reluctantly, the boy went up to the counter and asked for forks. They had none. The boy sat down again, with two plastic knives. 
“This is the nearest thing I can get to forks.”
“It’s okay. I like it when you overcome your shy self,” the girl said, smiling. “I can cheer you on and on everytime you do that.”
The boy smiles and takes the first slice of the chocolate donut. “Sorry, I’m so hungry.Let’s eat.” 
The boy and the girl take turns slicing and eating little donut pieces. The hungry boy ate two little pieces for every piece the girl got. All the while they talked about movies with orgies in the end, Mariah Carey and her latest album and husband, colleagues at work, who in the girl’s barkada had the first boyfriend..
The cheese donut was the next victim.
“I haven’t tried this before, said the guy. Is the cheese salty?” Not really intending to wait for his gf’s answer, he took some cheese crumblings and tasted it. 
“Oooh, amazing.” He ate some more.
“I remember going here with one of my girl friends a few years ago,” the girl blurted out. “Some guy was courting him then, and they always ate here. For some reason I was always with them, and she always gives me a free donut.” 
“Cheese flavor?”
“Yes.”
“Oh, so this is your favorite?”
The girl nodded.
“Where do you sit? Do you leave them alone?”
“No. They sit opposite to each other and I sit beside her.”
“Ahaha! Third party!”
“It’s okay with them naman daw..”
“And now your girl friend has another boyfriend. What did he look like again?”
The girl doesn’t remember. She remembers her girl friend’s first bf, not the recent one. They laugh.
The choco-mint donut, the prettiest and most awaited donut, was the last one remaining. With brown and white icing and green sprinkles, it was so nice to see. Yay, choco-mint. Too bad you’re going to be devoured, thought the guy. He was that hungry.
“It’s sweet. Yummy. Hmm..”
“Yes?” the girl asked.
“Uh oh.. my coffee’s running out.” He was sad. He knew that a really good donut can only be matched with a really good cup of coffee. He was both a donut and coffee fan. 
“You can have mine,” the girl said, pushing her cello’s paper cup with Cafe Latte. 
“I think I’m becoming more and more like my dad. It’s not impossible for him to drink ten or more cups a day. He’s already an expert, he knows when the coffee he drinks is microwaved.”
“Who the hell microwaves their coffee?” 
“Well, we do..”
“Why?” She obviously grew up in a household where the uses of a microwave are not fully realized.
“I don’t know,” the guy replied. “To make it warm again? Haha!”
The girl leaned back on the chair. “You know what? I just realized, I only drink coffee when I’m with you.”
“Really? Ah, you’re the tea and milk person, I remember.”
“Yes, and biscuits,” she says in a make-believe British accent.
“Well, are you forced to drink coffee when you’re with me?”
“Nah.. I don’t know.”
The boy takes another sip from the girl’s cup, which is now half-empty. He smiled. 
“Maybe,” he smiles. “Just maybe, you’re not really after the coffee. You’re after the conversation that comes with it. And that’s me.” He smiles even wider, like he was the greatest thing that happened to her ever.
The girl agreed. This boy had spunk. It was one of the things she liked about him, and she smiled on the inside. 
“You want water? I’ll get some,” the guy said. He got back to the table in a jiffy, with two plastic cups with cold water, giving the girl one more reason to smile.

Deliberate Gentle Love Dreamer (DGLD)

  The Sonnet   

  

Romantic, hopeful, and composed. You are the Sonnet. Get it? Composed?

 

Sonnets want Love and have high ideals about it. They’re conscientious people, caring & careful. You yourself have deep convictions, and you devote a lot of thought to romance and what it should be. This will frighten away most potential mates, but that’s okay, because you’re very choosy with your affections anyway. You’d absolutely refuse to date someone dumber than you, for instance.

 

Lovers who share your idealized perspective, or who are at least willing to totally throw themselves into a relationship, will be very, very happy with you. And you with them. You’re already selfless and compassionate, and with the right partner, there’s no doubt you can be sensual, even adventurously so.

 

You probably have lots of female friends, and they have a special soft spot for you. Babies do, too, at the tippy-top of their baby skulls.

Consider: The Loverboy (RGLM)

Feb 14 2007

Nakapagpaalam naman ako so ikukuwento ko ang mga pangyayari.

Naalala ko lang na yun ang valentines day na I really looked forward to. Nyahaha. It was the first.

May food na masarap na kinain namin sa isang very memorable place sa campus (nyahaha, di na lumayo sa UP).

May senti moments, siyempre.

May surprise moment nung sinayaw niya ko bigla.

After many other moments (…) umuwi na kami.

On the way to Concepcion nakasakay na kami sa jeep diba?

Tapos inatake siya ng asthma!

Hahaha akalain mo yun.

So detour to the nearest hospital!

Mga young nurses ang nag-attend sa ER para makanebulize siya agad.

Seryosong hirap na hirap siya huminga.

At dahil Feb 14 nga, malamang sa malamang na-infer na ng staff na naudlot ng asthma ang ‘date’ na yun.

Sabi nila kay jb, di raw niya ko nakayanan kaya biglang nawalan ng hininga. Haha.

Ako pa ang nagbayad ng pang nebulize kasi pinambili na ni jb ng food yung money niya!

Nyahaha

Whattaday.

Pa’no ang Feb 14 2008? Ewan! Haha. Next entry na lang. Abangaaaaan

On funny OPM songs.

So, have you heard of this song?

Yup, back when I was learning how to tie my shoes.

 
 2

Yup. Why are you reminding me of crazy OPM now?

 
 1

Nope. I hate you. This song is going to be stuck in my mind for the rest of the week.

 
 0

Nope. However, the song makes me wanna pole dance.

Ikaw Pa Rin – Ted Ito Music Codes

Nang mawalay ka sa aking puso
Kung bakit hanap-hanap ka pa
Ang yong mukha’y laging
Lagi na lamang sa isipan ko

Bakit di magawa nitong damdamin
Ang paglimot sa mga nagdaan
Sadya nga bang ganyan
Pag nagmahal ay di matatakasan

Chorus:

Nais ko’y makapiling kang muli
Nais kong mayakap kahit na sandali
Kung pangarap ma’y tatanggapin ko
Ikaw pa rin ang iniibig ko

Okay, anyone who hasn’t heard of this song is probably
    a. not older than 12 years old
    b. not brought up in a household with a loud loud radio played by their household ate
    c. not into OPM
    d. going to laugh when I say I actually am fond of this song.

The last time someone reminded me of this song was in first year PE2 social dance and erin (hello erin!), my funny history major dance partner, had a terrible case of “Ikaw pa rin” LSS. And he was enjoying it! Hahaha.

So nineties.

On mushy-ness.

Do people change that easily when they suddenly find themselves in a relationship that you never really thought they’d get into?

How come that friend of mine whom I’ve known for such a long time to be cynical about love is now.. mushy?

Not that I’m anti-mushy. Haha. I’m sure I’ve been mushy myself.. It’s just so weird seeing it in people I least expect to be mushy.

I believe our religion teacher in high school taught us something about the stages of love (or was it marriage? haha). There’s a name for those stages. But in my own words, the first stage is definitely the “I-can’t-live-without-you” stage, where love is usually very intense because of the new-ness of the relationship.

Unfortunately this stage isn’t permanent and eventually the two parties learn more about each other. The good stuff and the bad stuff. Sometimes, if they cannot handle the bad stuff about the other, the illusion formed during the beginning stages disappears, and causes disappointment (and frustration. and despair. <-bio 140).

What makes relationships last is whether or not the two can face the difficulties of seeing the imperfections of each other and accept those flaws as what they are. Or as I always say to (^^,) whenever one of us messes up : “hey, it’s part of the package.”

When the acceptance is there, then the relationship stabilizes.

I wonder how long my friend stays in that “I-can’t-live-without-you” stage. Hmm. I think it will be quite a while.
