Why I never want to get drunk with JR again...
08.11.2007 -17 °C
It was Tuesday at around 3am, when I suddenly had the urge to get drunk in front of strangers.
I texted JR this message:
Inuman tayo. Now na.
Reply naman agad ang JR:
Sus! Drawing ka naman eh!
To which I replied:
Walang biro, tsong. Gusto kong malasing.
JR took the hint and agreed to go with me to Malate.
We decided to get some dinner first in a li'l place called Silya. Medyo naparami ang order namin (crispy pata, fried calamers, chicken lollipop and three cups of java rice) kaya we had the waiter wrap up the leftovers and I gave it to this homeless guy who kept pestering us since we started eating.
"Bakit ba ang dami natin kasing in-order?" asked JR.
"Para marami rin tayong i-suka mamaya pag sobrang lasing na tayo!" I answered.
"Eh bakit ba all of a sudden, gusto mong magpaka-lango sa beer?" he asked.
It took me a while to answer, "Wala lang, haggard lang ang mga araw ko lately."
We headed to O-Bar, which was just next to our resto. The place was surprisingly crowded, for a tuesday night. Ang mga bakla talaga, adik sa gimik.
We went straight for the bar and immediately ordered a round of Red Horse beer.
We were surrounded by gay couples and fag hags. Most of them were already drunk and making out with each other.
After about thirty minutes and three bottles of beer, medyo may tama na agad ako.
Si JR naman sumasayaw na sa tabi ko. Pansin ko lang, medyo seductive pala sumayaw ang lolo mo. Kaya pala pinagtitinginan na siya ng mga baklush sa paligid namin. Lalo na yung isang Thundercats na bading na sobrang lasing na nakaupo sa malapit sa amin. His companions, a tall transvestite in a white Venus-cut blouse, and a thirty-something gay guy.
I leaned close to JR and whispered in his ear, "I think Lolo Homo kinda likes you. Kanina pa siya nakatingin sa iyo."
"I know. Pansin ko nga," JR whispered back, "Sandali lang ha? I just need to make a call."
After a few minutes, he went back in, and was laughing at something.
"What's so funny?" I asked.
"May nagtanong sa akin sa labas kung Tito daw kita," he said.
Natameme ako dun. Pakshet talaga! Do I really look that old???
"Nasaan ang punyetang baklang yan na nagsabing Tito mo ako?" I asked him, extremely peeved.
He just laughed and said, "Don't worry. I told him you were my date."
"Naks naman. Anlakas ng loob mo ha? Date?" I joked, "Wag kang maiinlove sa akin JR ha! Friends lang tayo!"
"Ulol! Baka ikaw ang mainlove sa akin!" he kidded back.
At this point, Lolo Homo approached us and started flirting with JR.
He was whispering something in his ear and JR seemed mildly annoyed, but he was trying to be nice to the old guy. He wasn't actually that old. Maybe early 40's?
Ang face? Ummm... mukha naman siyang mabait. Mabait na luya. Joke lang po.
White Transvestite approached me, smiling, "Hello! My name's Vicki!" And then he/she made beso to me.
Hindi ako sanay sa ganung eksena. I mean, he/she was a stranger after all. Pero since may tama na ako ng beer, go lang!
"Hi! Ako si Bookie," I introduced myself, with matching beso na rin.
There was another guy pero forgettable siya so I won't bother with him na.
White Transvestite and I were watching Lolo Homo flirt with JR.
JR, meanwhile, was trying to avoid being hugged by Lolo Homo.
"I think your friend has the hots for my friend," I noted to White Transvestite.
"Hahaha! Cute kasi ng friend mo, he looks like Enchong Dee," White Transvestite gushed.
Enchong Dee? Hmmm... maybe.
Lolo Homo was now trying to dance with JR, but the latter was still trying to fend off the former's advances.
Buti na lang, the cavalry came. Dumating na sa wakas yung mga friends ni JR, along with his ex, Brewster.
JR instantly latched himself onto his female friend, whom we shall call Gurlash.
I guess he thought he would use Gurlash as a human shield so Lolo Homo would back off.
Which he did.
Lolo Homo retreated to our side and said, "Eeeeew! May girl siyang kayakap and kasayaw!!!"
White Transvestite laughed and said, "Hay naku bakla! Talo ka diyan! May keps yan, ikaw wala!"
Their group eventually backed off and JR then approached me, "Tangina, Bux! In-offeran ba naman ako ng ten thousand para lang sumama daw sa room niya sa Sofitel. When I said no thanks he upped his offer to twenty thousand!! Kadiri!"
I pondered this, "Sayang, you could do a lot with twenty thousand..."
"ULOL!" JR answered eloquently.
A lot more happened after this, and I'll write about it in my next entry...
