It is exactly one month today and the weeks before that was the darkest, saddest and most sorrowful period of my life. I never imagined that the circumstances of those fretful, flustered and worrisome weeks could be felt and experienced by a human being. I was helpless, unhappy and perturbed. Exactly one month today was when my beautiful, charming and loving mother passed away.
This is the reason that I have suspended my posting on this blog. It is in fact taking me a lot of guts and audacity right now in trying to write and finish this post. There was even a period in the past weeks that I have decided to end and cease posting writeups on this blog (named after my mom’s endearing nickname, Nengkoy). But my mother for sure would not want that.
I decided to resume writing because I know I’ve got lots of beautiful stories to tell especially tales and snippets on how lovely and delightful a human being my mother was. I know that my simple quiet life will never be the same now that my mom is gone. But I will try my very best to adapt and get by in this new life’s setup.
I know that my mom is watching and got the best view up there in heaven. And I am pretty sure that she is smiling now that I have resumed my silly writing.
Like Rock Hudson who promised that he would treat himself for an ice cream if he gets the acting-role he first-time auditioned for, I too promised myself in the past that I would treat myself for an ice cream in case I finally found my “significant other”.
smiling today! haha!
I am writing this because it is Valentine’s Day today, the day of hearts, the day of love and the day to celebrate with a “significant other”. Unlike other Valentine Days in the past where I would just stay indoors, be quiet, sometimes be cranky and do nothing, I this year mustered a lot of chutzpah to be seen in public.
With testicles the size of asteroids, I stepped out, I went out and smiled outdoors! I decided to be cheery and light-hearted! A good amount of it was spent in my office so as to beat a deadline, shop at the biggest people-infested mall for larger-sized shirts because I’m getting plumper and do a little grocery at a nearby hypermarket. Included in my grocery haul was a pint of ice cream.
Yup, I decided to treat myself today for a big calorific amount of ice cream. You may be wondering now if I finally find my “significant other”. Let me answer it then…
Did you know that Rock Hudson went to his nearby diner and ordered for an ice cream despite knowing that he was not chosen for the acting role that he auditioned for? Though sad and down he was nevertheless was full of hope. Rock Hudson treat himself for a big goblet of an ice cream because he was proud of the courage he showed during the first time he auditioned.
I got the strawberry flavor! Happy Valentines everyone!
During your active breathing adult life, what are the common adjectives that you would get from strangers or people you know? Which among the complimenting and unflattering words on the English dictionary do you receive or are usually associated with?
Like everyone else, I’ve heard and received countless adjectives both appealing and unbecoming. But there is one elusive English word that I have yet to hear that would describe or associate me with.
The word is Sexy.
People say that being sexy requires nothing. It is a natural element that effortlessly flows out of a person’s aura. I have been called evocative, indelicate, spicy and suggestive but never sexy. I have been described as racy, shocking and delicious but never sexy. I have been considered tempting, yummy and palatable yet never sexy.
too pleasant, too neat, so unsexy!
Now, to those who bumped unto this post and reached this point of the article, you can either call me one at the comments section below or tell me where is the nearest store where I can buy a bottle of this elusive impression called “sexy”!
Please excuse this unsexy narcissistic episode! Hahaha!
How would you feel seeing your baby photos on Youtube? That is what I thought of while I was uploading a collage of Arziolo’s photo on Youtube. I hope that this baby would be glad in case he sees this when he grows up or he can always just press “report” and relay his reason for flagging this video.
Arziolo is Nengkoy’s great-grandson by the way… These photos are too cute not to share for everybody’s viewing pleasure!
