Don’t you ever have those days where you have so much alone time, that the demons in your head start playing racquetball with your idle thoughts? Today was like that for me. “Someone” is out of the country with friends and co-workers, so instead of marinating in my solitude, I decided to accomplish the long-delayed chores that have since built up because I’m usually too lazy to do them. Most chores involve paying bills, one of my least favorite thing to do. But at least it takes my mind off of the fact that I’ll be sleeping again alone tonight. Since I’ve been hopping from one place to another alone, I tend to talk to myself, and therefore arriving at many conclusions and realizing myriad musings previously unexplored. So in no particular order, here are but some of my random realizations:
1. “‘Money-out’ days like today remind me to be grateful for the ‘money-in’ days.” – I usually complain when there’s so much work and I get completely exhausted, but realizing the obscene amount of money you actually need these days just to cover the bare necessities, suddenly puts things into their proper perspective.
2. “Deciding to use the temperature word ‘HOT’ as a synonym for sexiness was brilliant in its analogy.” – Having seen so many hotties today made me realize that equating heat to sexiness is more apt than I ever realized. Just like in the literal sense, the hotter or sexier the person, the more you shouldn’t touch it. Large amounts of heat or sexiness is DANGEROUS.
3. “When you’re sick, the first person you seek is the person you love the most.” – It’s not necessarily the doctor or the most nurturing person in your life you automatically yearn for, it’s the one you love the most. And it’s not necessarily your romantic interest either. It could be your girlfriend, your mother, your varsity teammate, or manong guard, it’s not who can make you better, but who you get the most comfort from, on their sheer nearness to you.
4. “The teenagers you always see hanging out at the lobby of your condo, probably can’t stand their household situation.” – I always see the same kids lounging about in the lobby. They’re sprawled out on the sofas or sitting by the stairwell, heads bowed and buried in their mobile phones. Maybe they got nosy mothers, or they find their studio unit claustrophobic, but for whatever reason, they’d rather be anywhere but home.
5. “If they ever decided to make a porn parody of Kuya Germs’ TV show, a good title would be: ‘Walang Tuhugan’.”
