Patalastas - Threesome

It was Monday (June 2007) and the weekend is not looking good for me and My Bebhe when I received a call from home. It was my Mom asking for my assistance to pick up my brother who manage to get himself drunk and was not able to go home. So from QC, I went to Sucat to pick him up, bring him to Pasay where he has an apartment, and then back to our apartment and try to salvage whatever is left of my weekend when I received an unexpected message.

"Plan's change. We're on!"


Caught by suprise, I immediately called my Bebhe and informed him that I will be doing the meet up that was cancelled after all. No reply. Great! But I went ahead and meet my comrades anyway. Now these two that I will be meeting are not any ordinary people! They help shape my blog and are instrumental in the creation of my alter ego Dark Knight. Without them, there is no Dark Knight!

Let me describe them to you. The first one is Macoy. I have met him before but it was more like an introduction. Today will be the first time that a real conversation may take place. One thing that will strike you about him is his height. He's tall! Probably 6'1 or more. As if the height is not enough, he has a killer smile and a tongue trick that can knock anyone off their feet. And like any great deals, there's more! He's smart, down to earth, and rich. I know I'm not describing a saint but what can I do, these is how I perceive my comrade in arms.

Second is one of the first people in the blogosphere that I have corresponded with. Back when I still don't have a blog. Back when there was just JMFREAK. Back when nobody gives a damn about my existence. This guy reached out and befriended me. Yup you got it right! It's Hugh. This will be the first time that I will be meeting him in person. And thinking about the comments from people that have met Hugh, I got all worked up. They say that he is good looking. The next one says he's articulate. Everywhere I turn I here only good things about him. I was nervous as well as excited.

I arrived at Gateway around 7pm when the meet up will not be until around 9pm. Not that excited huh? Well Macoy is already there and I planned to rendevous with him first before we meet Hugh. And since this is the second time we saw each other, the atmosphere is lighter and we chatted in GJ while waiting for Hugh. We broach every topic that we can think off while drinking our coffee that Macoy paid for when Hugh arrived. Forgive my sustagen-deficient brain because I can't remember whatever we discussed nor what they were wearing. All I know is that Hugh lived up to what people says about him and more! I think I said that if I will be the one to rate him, 1 - 10 where 10 is highest, I will give him a 12. "I think" because I can't remember.

The night was long and our topic changed from one thing to the next. It was a joy to finally be able to converse with these people that I idolize. I was even given the opportunity to see the people behind the blog. The real Macoy and the real Hugh. I can go on and on about these two great figures that I finally met but I would like to end it here. For now.
