Other People’s Conversations

Usapang lasing sa Antipolo, one drunken rainy night (na-overhear lang sa kabilang mesa):

Kung bang maysakit ka at feeling mo may taning buhay mo, hindi ba’t there is a certain logic in wanting mga relasyong dead-end at walang patutunguhan para madali ang putulan at wala masyadong sakitan?”


Responses

  1. hmmm… may sabit yata sa logic na ganun. it’s as if damocles thought to himself, “haaays… tutal may espadang nakabitin sa tapat ng bumbunan ko… might as well do some jumping jacks!”🙂

  2. inuman ba talaga? hinde pot session ha! bad yun!😉

  3. arnold – oo nga. pero in fairness ang morbid ng imagery. may gilitan involved.

    gus – inuman lang.🙂

  4. Some people like dead ends,predictable blind alleys and doomed relationships maybe because they don’t want to know, too scared to know of what’s beyond the wall. Sometimes the comfort of routines may give us a sense of control, control over something we already know so well. Yet, it can become a drag. Parang computer game, ikaw lagi ang highest dahil kabisado mo ang laro. Pero hindi ka naaaliw.

    I may concede, dead ends can be nice. they’re straight to the point, they don’t mislead you or give you false hopes. But then again, umpisa pa lang, alam mo na ang wakas. What’s so fun about that?

    Huwag masaktan? Eh di magkulong na lang tayo sa mga aparador natin. Yun, guaranteed wala kang masasaktan, wala rin mananakit sa iyo. Pero, bakit kasi kailangan mo maniwala na hanggang doon lang ang mga bagay-bagay? Bakit hindi ka maniwala na mayroon sa likod ng pader?

    There are no such things as dead ends. It is only when we decide to end things that things truly end.

    As Pink Floyd would say: “bring down the wall.” If you can’t bring it down, then vandalize it, put some graffiti on it. Or better yet, piss on it.

  5. ikaw kasi e… ginamit mo yung words na “dead,” “putulan” at “sakitan.” nahawa tuloy ako🙂

  6. emman – here’s to finding people who bring out the best in us and letting go of those who bring out the worst. at least we can say we agree on something…

    arnold – pero mahilig ka talaga sa bloody. aminin mo na. hehehehehe.
