[Draft written on Saturday, Sept. 6 in the evening]
Greetings from Cebu!!!
It’s my second day in Cebu, and I’ve just finished a Skype conversation with Randy and Raviv. Man, I miss them so much!
So since yesterday, I have been double tasking: I was drinking the sights and sounds of Cebu, while also drowning myself in thoughts of Randy and Raviv.But surprisingly, I find that I miss Randy more, actually. Although I love my son so much, I’ve made no secret of the fact that I also long for us to travel together, alone. Thus I keep on thinking of my husband while being on “foreign” land. Yiheee!!!And here comes another surprise: the thoughts I have of Randy aren’t romantic-romantic…actually, it’s his trademark sarcasm. And as I reviewed our recent conversations, here’s what I realized about my husband: Randy secretly loves bursting my bubble! It’s like he knows the answers I expect of or hope from him, but then he would say something else, either because he’s unbelievably clueless or just because he want to piss me off.
To illustrate, here:
I: Babe, nag-sunblock ka ba?
[Recently, I’ve decided to really (totoo na ‘to, pramis!) take care of my and Randy’s skin. And that means putting on sunblock religiously every morning after bathing even if we won’t be under the sun]
[I detected that he was lying…I can’t explain it, basta, I just see it on his face]
I: Weh hindi no?!? Nagsisinungaling ka eh! Hindi ka nag-sunblock no? Umamin ka!
Randy: Sorry, sorry…nalimutan ko kasi. Pero promise ngayon lang ako hindi nag-sunblock…lagi talaga akong nagsa-sunblock na..
I: Hindi ka nag-sunblock? E bakit parang ang puti ng mukha mo?
[At this point, I expected him to say either:
a. He actually put on sunblock, after all.
b. His face has become fairer because of diligence in reminding him to put sunblock.
Randy: Ewan ba’t maputi ‘yan. Namutla siguro ako sa takot sa pag-i-interrogate mo!
Randy: Buti na lang hindi ka ma-cellulite, no? May nakita kasi akong babae, ang payat pa tapos parang bata pa. Parang ang ganda sa harap tapos nung tumalikod andaming cellulite sa legs…
I: Ano ka, andami ko na kayang cellulite…
Randy: Hindi, wala…
I: Andami! Kaya nga nako-conscious akong mag-shorts…Kitang-kita ko ‘yung mga cellulites ko.
Randy: Hay naku, ewan ko sa ‘yo! Ang idea mo kasi nang walang cellulite ‘yung kahit i-microscope walang makikita! Pati pores, dapat hindi makita sa ‘yo! Kaya nga pores eh, butas kasi talaga ‘yun…tapos hindi kita?!?
I no longer minded, honestly. As I said on my comment, “I. SURRENDER.” Mga ganyan talaga ang trip ng asawa ko sa buhay. Hmpft. >:(
But right now, I miss him so much that I’ll be a willing audience listening to his sarcasm, honestly. I guess, true love ko na nga si Randy.
Definitely, distance made my heart grew fonder of my husband.
Tell me what you think!
