I really can’t believe I’m going to get published. And on my birth month at that! Kuya Jess has such perfect timing. True (and it’s such a cliche), I couldn’t ask for more. Okay, so maybe there are still things left to cross out on my list, but I’m willing to wait a few more years (if that be so).
Last saturday, me and Ate Tin went to Bogz’s house. Bogz is my cuddly semi-lil sis. She’s one of my favorites in Maksci Batch1 (whooo I don’t usually play favorites but then again, it’s me. =P). So we went to their house to bake Brownies for Ron, and while waiting in their sala I noticed this RC (Remote-Controled) Car by the stairs. I asked Bogz if it had batteries on it and in no time, I was playing with the darn toy! Dang… I never realized an RC is one missing piece of my childhood. Until now.
FLASHBACK<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< If I remember it correctly, my first and only RC as a child was a black one. I can’t remember exactly how it looked like but I remember playing it on our block and ramming it onto one of those sand piles near construction sites. When I took it out, it was full of sand and wasn’t working anymore. That was the end of my RC. I never had one after that.
So, yes, I wish I have an RC. *hint hint* Whooo too childish, ei? But then again, it’s a missing part of my childhood and I believe the only cure would be to have a new one again.
I wonder if mom’s gonna buy me a laptop for my birthday? I gave her a pamphlet with price listings of cheap-o laptops sold here in UP (the cheapest being 12k and the most expensive being 20k). I wonder if mom’s gonna bite the bait. But I thought hard about it, and I don’t think I want any of those cheap-o laptops at all. It’s Economy vs Quality playing the game here, and if that’s the case I’d rather go for the 30k I found in Shangri-La with features of a 50k laptop.
Mom bought Kuya Jay an MP3 player a few months back. She bought Ninay a new cellphone for her birthday last monday. I’m turning 18 and there’s not gonna be a debut party, but is there gonna be…?
No, JM, don’t get your hopes up. Besides, don’t you have it all? (a published article, loving parents, caring friends, opportunities to serve, an understanding girlfriend, thoughtful best friends, a high-end cellphone, etc.)
I do. Haha…
Count your blessings…
