flakes of rubbles from our decayed ceiling woke me as it dominated my oil moistened face. for an instance, i thought that another natural catastrophe has hit our apartment because i’ve been hearing sounds of tearing and thundering attacks on our roof. when i checked out our window, it dawned to me that it was not the force of nature, but of men. men armed with saw, hammers, and other spiky objects were creating sounds of thunder on our roof. how dare them steal me away from my dreams of resting on a carribean cruise! they have no right to wreak havoc while people were still asleep.
before i could insinuate a mini-war, i suddenly realized that i didn’t pay the house rent for two consecutive months. and so i just ignored them and let them tear or repair our roof as they wish, as long as they don’t dismantle my bed, else, it’ll be the start of wwiii.
a former dorm mate borrowed my copy of gaiman’s smokes and mirrors. he greeted me with criticisms from our recently released community newspaper. yes, i do i understood that he was a former editor-in-chief way back in his high school days, that he may have known journalism by heart, but can he be more rude?
i asked him to meet me at a certain computer shop since kitty the dog, the resident guard of our apartment, frightens him. he saw me updating my blog and remarked that blogs are only for lonely people. he even said “bakit ka pa naggaganyan?” and made it sound as if only losers were the ones blogging. poor him. he used to blog. and to tell you, he was a prolific writer. but since he decided to change route and filed his leave of absence in school to pursue his carreer in love and in the call center, he became a critique, someone who seemed to watch and criticize our every move as if we’re inside a terrarium.
he beamed as he browsed over the pages of the book. he continued throwing remarks at my blog. violent thoughts started to cloud my mind. i don’t think smokes have emerged from my ears, but the moment i shot him an indignant look, he walked out from my sight.
my current counter says i've already received 20000 hits since i don't know when.
