haha… since i can’t get myself to send a personal message to my HS crush…
goldie was my biggest crush in high-school. well, actually, she was my only crush in HS. mula 2nd year eh nagkagusto na ako sa kaniya. ganito kasi yon: since magkasunod kami ng apelyido (Santos siya. full name: Goldie Candy Santos), naging magkatabi kami. naging madalas ang biruan, kantiawan, harutan, kurutan at suntukan (well, ako lang naman sinusuntok niya sa balikat whenever i say something green. heehee). well, the laughter was swell. i guess when i started to want more, ayun… dun na nagkagulo. in short, di siya na-develop saken kahit na i was going ga-ga over her. she was being aloof. ang malaking problema: magkagrupo kami sa frog dissection sa biology!
anyway, so nagsabi na ako ng “143” pero we still had to work on our frog. ang final project kasi eh kunin yung skeleton ng palaka. say it with me people: AWKWARRRRRRRRD!
anyway, naala ako lang kasi yan dahil nga naglinis ng basura ang dad ko sa bahay. yung mga nakatambak na lumang gamit. and then, there it was! on the black side of illustration board with funny stickers and labels (and strings) with a dusty plastic cover was bang-bang, jr. (may nauna na kaming palaka and we named it bang-bang. unfortunately, may nag-nenok ng palakang yun. so we had to start all over again with a new frog. so we named it bang-bang, jr. )
hay, sarap maalala mga bagay na ganyan. nakaka-bata talaga. kinikilig pa din ako, i admit, whenever i remember the things i felt with goldie. pero it’s more of fondness and with a different heart. i will admit to loving her to an extent noon. ngayon, i still can say i love her and she will always be a good friend.
P.S. i hate it when people always add “as a friend” when they tell their friends that he/she loves them. if you love them, tell them that you love them, period. ang hirap lang kasi madalas nilalagyan ng malisya ang isang bagay na wala naman dapat.
