The Wish... Two years ago I celebrated a milestone and one of my fondest wish was to be gifted a yellow labrador. I started sending out hints to my guests-to-be...but they all ignored me, for the simple reason that these dogs were too expensive for their wallets. The argument was...if I was not willing to part with my hard-earned money to buy one...why should they? was my birthday! Anyway, I didn't get it...until... The Better Late than Never Gift... Last Sunday, 2 years, 5 months and several days after that all important birthday, my son's friend casually mentioned that he was giving away 2 more puppies of his yellow lab. Now, imagine me looking disinterested but deep inside my heart was pounding with excitement saying to my son... why don't you get one ? And his friend said he can give us one if we want it...before my son could say anything, I said with a big grin... we'll pick it up tomorrow . The next day, after my meetings in Bacolod, I went s

wish I can do this...

Today, I'm in the mood for some really risky behavior...I actually have several things on my "wish I can do this now" going for a long ride on high gear on a Suzuki bike or maybe spend a long weekend on a secluded beach front villa with its own jacuzzi,lap pool and personal masseuse(with a Brad Pitt look-a-like in tow, would be good)...or spend a day shooting at the picture of the person who's pissing me off... but maybe it would be simpler to just hope that he chokes on his food tonight and is brought to the ER and nobody would resuscitate him...YES! Is wishing someone dead the same as killing him?....nah! Someone told me that in a dispute, the first one who gets mad loses... guess, I should go ride that bike instead, huh.

wish for today

I know I said I don't dwell on the past and I don't. Sometimes though, like today for instance, I get to wishing I was 20 again. I don't remember much about being 20 but if one could go back and do things all over again, this is the age I want to be. Being 20 means you're past your teenage years and all its uncertainties, but still young enough to be open to all kinds of possibilities. Of course if I do go back, I would keep everything I know and learned about adulthood and mid-life, otherwise what's the point of being young again when you will be as clueless as the first time. So what would be the first thing I'd do? I'd be friendlier, less judgmental and take people for what they are and not what I'd like them to be. I'd also learn to be a more gentle person, and expand my horizons. Of course, if I want to be all those things, I really don't have to go back in the past, do I?
