Would You Rather?

Nung college, we were classmates for only a few courses but we were seatmates in most of them. Pero whenever we felt bored sa class (hahaha), we would play a scribbled version of 𝐖𝐎𝐔𝐋𝐃 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐑𝐀𝐓𝐇𝐄𝐑.

Di ko pa alam na ganun yung tawag dun. Basta kukunin niya yung notebook ko tapos she would write two choices and I should pick one.

𝐈𝐭 𝐰𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐬𝐨𝐦𝐞𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐮𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐚𝐥.
Mountain or beach?
Sobrang sarap na ulam or sobrang sarap na dessert?
Talent na maka-compose ng kanta or maka-paint?

𝐌𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐚𝐧, 𝐩𝐚𝐧𝐠-𝐬𝐮𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐡𝐞𝐫𝐨.
Makalipad or be invisible at will?

𝐌𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐚𝐧, 𝐩𝐚𝐧𝐠-𝐬𝐜𝐢-𝐟𝐢.
If makaka-time-travel ka, pupunta ka ba sa past to relive a memory or get a glimpse of the future?

𝐌𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐚𝐧, 𝐩𝐚𝐧𝐠-𝐌𝐢𝐬𝐬 𝐔𝐧𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐞.
Maging super gwapo pero walang pera or mayaman pero medyo tanga?

𝐌𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐚𝐧, 𝐚𝐧𝐠 𝐡𝐚𝐛𝐚 𝐧𝐠 𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧.
Kung pop star ka, mas gugustuhin mo ba na marami kang hits pero lahat forgettable or one-hit wonder ka lang pero sobrang legendary nung one hit na yun, like everyone everywhere knows your song?

𝐌𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐚𝐧, 𝐰𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐠 𝐤𝐚-𝐤𝐰𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚-𝐤𝐰𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚.
Mas gugustuhin mo ba na maliliit lang ang pimples pero sobrang dami or isa lang pero sobrang laki? 😅
Tapos mag-eexplain din so ang dami nang sulat dun sa notebook. Feeling ko nasa akin pa yung notebook na ‘yun pero katamad maghanap.

Syempre ngayon, hindi na kami naglalaro ng ganyan. But 18 years later, we can still talk to each other about ANYTHING. Anything at all. Whether it’s about business or politics, romance or family, politics, music or movies, Grey’s Anatomy or RuPaul’s Drag Race, or something as trivial as “mataba ba ako sa pic na ‘to?”

Through the years, kahit ngayong quarantine — especially ngayong quarantine — these conversations have kept me entertained, occupied, even sane.

They say that a true friend is someone with whom you can share anything without judgment. And to me, Tonet is that friend. Pero siguro may judgment din, di lang niya sinasabi, char. Hahaha.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BESH!

O ayan, may nahanap akong pic na presentable tayo.
