Valentines, Oh Valentines!

Posted on: February 14, 2007

Who says that Valentines Day are for couples only? Of course not. I’m happy as this is the first time in years that I felt good about all this hullabaloo everytime the Hearts Day approaches. I am actually wondering if my family is celebrating it at home right now. (Yea, I’m still in the office, finishing an ad proposal on a Valentines night… nice.) Wonder if my pop prepared a nice dinner for mom or if ‘ate’ bought some cake with the ‘Happy Valentines!’ greeting on it. But I’m pretty sure, my beloved baby brother is not giving a sh*t about all this; he’s probably engrossed playing PS2 right now.

It’s ironic how I didn’t see too many indications that it’s actually Valentines Day today but how strongly I felt it. I received a lot of greetings from friends and I just enjoyed watching some of them be surprised by a bouquet of flowers or some other sweet gestures from their significant others. Of course there are some who actually feels bad because they got nada.

This morning, my cab driver was trying really hard to strike up a conversation with me, telling me how he’s been overwhelmed by the prominence of color red everywhere he looked. I was half-tempted to tell him: “baka naman ho color blind na kayo… e wala naman akong nakikitang nakapula eh…” Anyways, it was funny; he was telling me how the owner of the cab he was driving got all excited about the V-Day that he even put red seat covers and tiny little hearts at the dashboard and ‘ceiling’ of his cab. It was lucky I decided not to wear my red pull-over; had I worn it, I would perfectly blend in with the car seat. Yaikks!

Anyway, some people crossed my mind and I was almost convinced that I do miss them. But truth is, I don’t. it’s just fun thinking about them and how I used to ‘share’ some of these sweet moments with them…

  • That guy who gave me a long stem white rose which he got from Mother Mary’s altar. I heard he cried when he learned that I already left for Baguio and he missed giving me his present. Sweet chap. I would love to run into him one of these days.
  • That guy who suddenly kissed me out from nowhere. (Sa cheeks lang naman, promise!) They were playing ‘truth or dare’ and I was busy reading some magazine beside him. He was asked to kiss the person whom he cares most about [at that time]. The bloke suddenly turned to me and without a word kissed me on the cheek! Eh bata pa ko nun… I was surprised. Well, I think that’s sweet too.
  • That guy who never gave me anything but heartache. Let’s just say he played a big part in my teen-age years love-life. Haha. Heartbreaker, you know who you are.
  • That guy who pretended to be my boyfriend because a yucky crewmate in McDonald’s kept harrassing me to be his girlfriend. Hah, he chased the poor guy away and I ended up liking him too much that it broke my heart into pieces when I learned that he likes my best friend more than me. Sad. But happy now.
  • That guy [who looks like my pop] whom I had a crush to in college; a schoolmate in UP Baguio. He has this squeaky, chipmunk-like voice that turns me off every time. But hey, he plays the guitar like Satriani *drooling* I never really got the nerve to talk to this guy.
  • That guy who took me to see the movie ‘Bourne Identity’ (or Supremacy… I can’t actually remember). The jerk tried to kiss me and you-know-what! right there in the middle of the Robinsons Place theatre. Ang baduy! I never saw him after that.
  • That very first guy whom I confessed my feelings to. He told me ‘I rock!’ and I thought it wasn’t really flattering. Nothing really happened. I think I still like him but there’s something in him that turns me off. He doesn’t care about me at all.
  • That guy. Yes, that guy.

It’s funny how I felt they were my world at some point in time and how I overcame and just shrug and smile and laugh at the idea every time I think about them now.

I love L-O-V-E. It’s like the kid in us… it’s silly most of the times.
