The other day, Dookie and I were watching this cable channel which was showing some ballet dancers waltzing around on stage.
"They're so thin," I said, "parang feeling ko, pag humatsing ako sa tabi nila, mababali na yung mga katawan nila. Tapos tignan mo yung isang dancer, kamukha ni Lilet!"
"You'd be surprised how strong most female ballet dancers are, actually," noted Dookie, "Just imagine supporting your whole body weight on just your toes."
I laughed, "Hala! Siguro malalampa ako pag ginawa ko yun!"
"You're so self-deprecating, you know that?" he said to me, seriously.
I scoffed at the idea, "Di naman. It's just that I like making fun of myself. At least nga, kaya kong pagtawanan ang sarili ko. I think it's very healthy.
Dookie decided to change topics then, "So, how's your controversial blog?"
"Ayun, daig pa rin si Cristy Fermin pagdating sa intriga," I replied, "Sometimes, I think it's causing way too much trouble."
"Why? Any problems at work?" he asked.
I lied to him, "Nope. Nothin' I can't handle."
But the truth is, may problema na naman ako. Haaaay. Di ko na alam kung ano gagawin ko.
All I can say is, "I'm holding out for a hero."
Somebody save me.
