I really wish I were singing the novelty song at that moment, to make the situation more movie-perfect. There I was, in high spirits, fresh from a good lunch in Serendra, thinking about what a great day I was having. I’m sure the rest of the driving population can relate when I say it all turned around and changed for the worse after I was pulled over for Jesus-knows-what-this-time.
I was apprehended for violating the number coding scheme along McKinley Road, where I thought window hours were implemented. Actually, I was pretty sure I was safe from any tickets because I tweeted at the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), arguably the authority most associated with number coding, to verify it. However, a man in dark blue waved at me and motioned for me to pull over halfway down the road. “Ma’am, coding po kayo.” Huh? Isn’t the window until 3 p.m.? “Kuya, 2:30 palang. Diba may window hanggang 3? Nagtanong ako sa MMDA, may window daw dito.” To which he replied, “Ma’am, hindi po ‘to jurisdiction ng MMDA. Makati po dito.” Damn it.
Yes, what a way to start a day with morning sniffles. I guess i just need to chug up a liter of water before noon strikes. Promise, water helps a lot.
So this week’s catching-up-with-friends week. Saz is out of town, he’s in Ifugao, btw. And yes, i am guilty of “neglecting” quantity time with some high school and college friends because my life pretty much revolves around work and family and Saz. I mean, there aren’t a lot of moments with friends without Saz tagged along. Most, if not all, of gimmicks have been the circle and the +1s; so im really excited about the days ahead.
Well it’s another ordinary day with an extraordinary meaning.
Its Saz and i’s monthsary. 15th to be exact. I know i know, i’m probably one of the cheesiest persons in this world but i guess i just have that innate force in me just wanting to express my feelings- whether good or bad. I find this openness embracing and vindicating and it’s in my expressing love that i find utter, immeasurable joy.
And to share with you, having been with Saz for quite a while i realized how much i’ve grown as a person and as a partner. My maturity, self-control, and everything that has been a challenge for me have just immensely changed for the better. And I have him to thank all that for.
And although we go through the same share of heartaches and problems, like any couple does, I could not be any happier. It’s all worthwhile. He’s worth every shot.
