Good Thing I'm Not Popoy

On our ride going to home, I tried to bond with a couple of MB’s friends. Luckily, I was able to make them like. And since it’s still early, when we got off at Galleria, I asked MB if it’s ok to watch a movie. Tired as he is, he didn’t object. So we trudged on to the cinema in silence. When we reached the cinema, I asked MB again if it’s ok. He just smiled at me as if trying to assure me that there is nothing more that we wants to do but to watch a movie with me. And eyes welled up and I fought back the tears. Oh how much I love MB!

During the movie, I can’t help but snuggle up with MB. But I guess he is so tired that he was not able to respond the way he would normally do. So, thinking that the best thing that I could do is to let him rest, I shifted to the other side of my seat as to distance myself from him so that he could sleep. So during the entire movie, I acted as if I was watching it alone while stealing some glances to the person I love most in the world.

The movie was good. It made me realize a lot of things and cleared up some thoughts that have been disturbing me for quite sometime now. Here are some of them:

1. Never say how fast a quickie can be if you don’t want to start an argument.
2. Don’t use shampoo for suicide attempts. It will not work.
3. Close your eyes when breaking up with someone if you don’t want to be hit.
4. Don’t kiss a singer, it will make you puke.
5. Not everything can be fixed by make-up-sex.

Seriously though, during the movie, I asked myself what I will do it I will be in Popoy’s shoes. Would I leave the person who were there during the worst time of my life and help me start over just to be with the person I love? No matter how I would like to put it, there is only one answer that my futile, stubborn, rush, and irrational mind. Yes I will. I mean, there is no point at all in being in a relationship with someone if the only reason you are with that person is because you owe him/her. And even though you have grown to love that person, you are just kidding yourself. You know who your heart is aching for. You know who you will be happy with.

I know some of you will say that they will be willing to curtail that longing and bear that heartache because they don’t want to be hurt again. They don’t want to take that step into the unknown once more. They would rather stay with the one they are certain that will not make them cry. I just remember a dialogue in one of the films I like.

“He doesn’t make me cry”
Tess answered to Danny Ocean when Danny asked her if Terry Benedict makes her laugh.

If you don’t take risks, you will live your life asking yourself “What if?” Now ask yourself, do you want that? I know I don't.

Sisterhood Kai Super sad talaga kung hindi tayo nagtake ng risk at hindi tayo nagkakilala.
