Soon the clan or a portion of it is having a gathering. Of the number going, I am the runt, okay not literally because according to wikipedia, joke, the dictionary, a runt is an animal that is smaller than average – which description doesn’t suit me at all, but does if you think of runt in a derogatory manner. Well maybe, not really. I’m just looking for excuses not to go.
Why? I’ve been to some gatherings (not Magic, the Gathering – corny joke) where i get so bored I wished I’d not left home and watched Koreanovelas instead. So what excuse can I offer?
Well the car is number coded but see, the gathering is in QC where there’s a window. Shucks, How I wish they had planned to hold it in Makati or Las Pinas.
And one of those going texted last night to ask why I’m not (there’s a FB group page where people update attendance) and I haven’t answered her. I should because it’s bad manners to ignore a text message from someone who’s not an enemy or not selling something, right?
Do I pray to the Holy Spirit for inspiration? Does the Holy Spirit read my blog posts?
Or should I just go and get it done? And behave like the rest of the furniture in the room?
Maybe I’m just lazy, maybe it’s because I am an introvert, maybe…. I’d rather watch a telenovela really. Or the Ryzza Mae show at 11:30 a.m., then Eat Bulaga later.
I like to have pictures in my post so I googled “inspiration” under images. Here are my favorites or at least three of them that seem apt:
So which doesn’t belong to the set? Alin, alin, alin ang naiba? Isipin kung alin ang naiba?
Now I wonder why the runt was put up with the rest of the images under “inspiration”.
Does it mean that opening a bird cage is an inspired move?
