Caught Taking Off My Pants?

Today started off weird. I was at the bus stop wait­ing for my bus to go to the City, when I sud­denly hear a loud voice com­ing from behind me:

HEY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING?”

I was caught off guard as I sud­denly turned towards the source. With a quick glance, I sud­denly saw this old man in front of his house (which is next to the bus stop). I quickly gave a look around if it was me he was talk­ing to. I also think I did a quick Taxi mono­logue (“You talkin’ to me…?”).

I then responded in a dumb­founded manner:

Excuse me?” He replies with the same ques­tion. “Good morn­ing. I’m wait­ing for the bus…(?)”

While say­ing that, I was tak­ing a look below me. “I have my pants on for sure,” I said to myself. Then, the fol­low­ing ensued:

  • old man: “Wait­ing for the bus…? I just saw you tak­ing your pants off.”
  • me: “What??? No, just wait­ing for my bus haha” *crackin’ up inside*
  • old man: “Well… I thought I saw you tak­ing off your pants.”
  • me: “Haha… It’s too early in the week for that” *smil­ing to lighten things up*
  • old man: “Too early in the week? Not for my week(!)”

I think he was still some­what pissed off. I didn’t really pay atten­tion as I was still crackin’ up inside, and not try­ing to show it.

Mean­while, after catch­ing the bus, I took a moment to rem­i­nisce. Before he came out gun-slinging out of his house, I remem­ber putting my keys in my back­pack. Now, there was a faux rock thing that cov­ers those power/cable/phone out­lets on the pave­ment. I know that I have put my back­pack down in front of me, on top of that faux rock. I… just hap­pen to be fac­ing his house while doing it. That, and he prob­a­bly heard me zip-up my back­pack haha.

The thing that bother me is, he prob­a­bly was observ­ing me the whole time even before I zipped up my bag. Damn, what a crazy morn­ing and a crazy dude.

From my mind to yours, when wait­ing for a bus: make sure to look out for crazy home bod­ies; be under­stand­ing if they all of sud­den prowl at you for no rea­son at all; and be ready for a great laugh—though it seems very weird HA!

Post-Graduates and Marathons

Things that make you go hmmm… Why is this so true with those who are done with their school work. It’s like:

Hi Mom! Here’s my diploma. Now, it’s time to run 26 miles. See you in a bit.

But yeah, just a thought that came to me like Jerry’s epiphany. Is it this unspo­ken truth that every­one in their 20s do all of a sud­den? It’s like the unsolved mys­tery of why every kid in the world with a NES know­ing the trick to blow into their car­tridge to make it “work”.

From my mind to yours, Hip Hop is Dead

All From the Same Tree

Just want to share this quote w/ every­one. I found it just brows­ing a minute ago…

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the moun­tain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.

Should we all con­fess our sins to one another we would all laugh at one another for our lack of orig­i­nal­ity.
Should we all reveal our virtues we would also laugh for the same cause.

— Khalil Gibran

Thank God it’s mid-November

After a few weeks off from work to visit and expe­ri­ence Japan with an awe­some bunch of friends, things have picked up both at work and at home. Don’t you just like it when you come back to work and you receive over 400 emails? Besides try­ing to find the time to do laun­dry and pro­cess­ing the pho­tos I’ve taken from the trip, I’m still try­ing to not think about Japan too much. But when you very much enjoyed an expe­ri­ence, it’s hard not to rem­i­nisce and reply all the fun stuff that you did. The thing I miss the most would prob­a­bly be the food. Oh man… the food!

Any­ways, besides try­ing to process and upload pho­tos, clean my room, do laun­dry, etc. I’m try­ing to get ready in sell­ing or tran­si­tion­ing my Accord to Gabby. Its lease is up early Decem­ber. I didn’t know what to do, whether to buy it out from Honda, return it or get a new car/SUV. I’ve taken great care of it and vice-versa. So what bet­ter way to let go of it than to have some­one you know take over. This way, you feel at ease see­ing some­thing sen­ti­men­tal be taken care of by some­one who appre­ci­ates it. Well, I hope things go as plan so I may get a new one soon—I’m think­ing of the Pilot. What you think? See me rollin’ in one?

I think it’s a good invest­ment if I get one as I don’t drive that much dur­ing the week­days so I save on gas and mileage. That, and I’ll be able to go up the moun­tain a bit eas­ier this upcom­ing sea­son, which I hope will be a good one. Any­ways, time to do some catch­ing up. I’ll leave you with a bless­ing that my aunt (from Nor­walk) sent me this morning:

May today there be peace within.
May you trust God that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not for­get the infi­nite pos­si­bil­i­ties that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love
that has been given to you….
May you be con­tent know­ing you are a child of God…
Let His pres­ence set­tle into your bones, and allow your soul the free­dom
to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

God Bless You All!
