I wasn't expecting a reply from Tatum.
But he did.
I was thinking "If he ignores the question, he doesn't want to see me again."
But then, I was also thinking "He knows better than to shun me altogether when all I ever wanted was to be the bestest friend he could ever have. And I have always been nice to him. I know he loses his mind over my this-is-just-me antics sometimes. But, hey, they're not deliberate. I tend to be really DUH-ish when he's around, I mean, I can control myself but what I can't control is not minding what he thinks of me when I'm being just me!"
Anyway, when negativism seemed to be gaining the upperhand I just enjoyed -- revered -- in the workload I was faced with the whole day. Thanks to action-packed Pontoon, it gave me no opportunity to "ponder."
When I checked my mobile and read the message from HIM...
So much for head-over-heels-stupid-girl-in-love reaction.
Nope, he's not the one for me. But he is my quilig factor numero uno, 2 years in a row. My beloved friend.
Would you believe the author of this post is a 28-year-old female?! She sounds like a highschool girl with a highschool crush.
I just can't believe she's me.
What love can do.
Close-up Lovapalooza takes place at Baywalk, Roxas Blvd., Manila tonight. I remember being there last 2004, with my 5-year flame, when the Philippines set a world record. And after 2-days, Feb. 16, he broke up with me.
Water under the bridge.
What matters is I am happy now, more than ever.
