Buhay Talaan ni Felipe - 2

Mamaalam, tala kong may ngiti, saglit lamang, may huling habilin, sa gitna ng yong paglalakbay, sa dako mong ihihimlay dalhin ang payapa't pangakong wagas. Patawad. May lunas pa araw nananamlay mong diwa s'yang may gamay ng malay mong tilang hiram. Itong minamataa, daang tinitimbang, dala, tang kong alay. Mamaalam sa mundong kay lupit, sadya kayang nilihis sa pait. Sa gitna ng yong paghihimlay, manlako kang maghihintay. Dalhin sa paaglitis. Taglay ng tamis. Paalam. ["Alay," Aia de Leon]

I wasted away my day. The only thing that I did was go to ATC and buy the San Miguel Philharmonic Orchestra CD. That was it. I could have had my band bracelet repaired. But I didn't. I could have dropped off KD's CDs. But I didn't. I could have bought new shirts. But I didn't. I could have ordered a Yellow Cab pizza. But I didn't.

I'm so lazy!

I wonder how my friends are doing. I haven't seen any of them since the start of the year. J is the only one who has seen how skinny my arms have become.

Robin is having a good hair day today. Well, I bathed him with Vaseline shampoo (experiment lang) and after 30 minutes of blow drying, his hair fluffed up like an afro ball. And it smelled real nice. Sarap tuloy yakapin. I brought him to my room and hugged him the rest of the morning. Malambing din naman si Robin kapag hindi masungit eh. He used to be an indoor dog before he pooped up my mom's persian rug. So he had to stay outside. And then he started harassing Dexter. Then he had to be caged.

I love my dogs but I wish I just had only one dog. It's hell taking care of a large dog like Dexter. It's also time consuming to groom a hairy dog like Robin. And Max... Max is just crazy. He's the reincarnation of the Energizer bunny. He's a puppy on ecstasy. If I had to choose only one dog to remain, it would be Robin. Dexter's malambing but he's just too big. Ang hirap dahil sa vet if I have to.

I just have to keep up with them like a parent should, I guess.
