OK, after a long debate with my inner self i decided to blog this sickness of mine. ‘you see, i have this incurable clumsiness that always brings me to predicament, funny predicament. i suspect that it’s not only the clumsiness that caused this disease. i believe that its the combination of inexhaustible curiousity, poor luck and, well, filthy clumsiness. ugh. after all, i should document my periodic stupidity by now before it comes out of my memory. so, here it is, some of the strands of my so-called unprecedented adventures:
- “IT ba yan?” – this is one my recent, and i believe it will be one of my favorites. it happened a few months ago when we attended a Microsoft event in Shangrila Hotel, Manila. It’s a conference so there were at least 2000 people. During lunch break, getting our food turned out to be a struggle. Everybody was literally trying to grab their food. Gladly, after several push and bumps , we were able to get ourselves some food and a table where we can eat. While eating, a nice (ok, beautiful! now satisfied? ) lady was standing, and eating, besides us, so i invited her on the table. We had small talk and my mind started to fly. As i drink my ice tea the lady say something to me like “IT ba yan?”, and i laughed confidently assuming that she was pertaining to those people who are in disarray just to get their food. but when her words started to sink in, i realized that what she just said was “Ice tea ko yan!!”. And my world just suddenly turned into humiliation, i apologized to the lady and quickly take another glass of ice tea to replace it. after that, i sit to it that the lady never sees me again. ever.
- Dinuguan flavored fingers – it happened when we were in a mall, trying to find a place to eat. since we are in a food court a lot of food cafeterias are available. i was trying to point where i want to eat and i didn’t noticed that we were standing beside a group of people having their lunch. when i was about to return my hands on my side pocket, my fingers landed on one of their plates and *splat* my fingers were covered with dinuguan.
- joefort the stalker – one of the most embarrassing experience but definitely the one that i am proud of. me and my bud were going to his apartment when this happened. i have this hobby that i take pictures randomly on anything that caught my interest. i was trying to play with my camera when one of the passenger took the wrong impression and accused me that i was trying to take some pictures of her. i was blown away. i showed her the contents of my camera, and none of them were her picture. i am pissed already. there were at least 15 people on the vehicle. she told me that my plan just didn’t succeed, and that was it. she crossed my line. i told her, “you think you’re that pretty?”. and she stopped. she didnt know what to say or do. i know that it was harsh but she forced me to do it. i felt sorry looking at the girl. when we were about to get off the vehicle i left her with “if i wanted your picture, i’ll ask.”
there, those were the first batch. i’ll blog some more if i have the time, and guts, hehehe.
