Old Routes

i have 5 minutes to get this down before i head off to math class. math 11 take 2. lovely.

i had an interesting conversation with my favorite kamuning-fairview route jeepney driver. the same driver who offered to drop me off right in front of my gate when i fell asleep on my way home and was the only passenger left. \

after the prerequisite “kamusta ka na? musta valentine’s mo?” he asks me

jeepney driver man: anong year ka na ba? 3rd year college?
me: first year po
jdm: laki mong babae ah!
me: sa ateneo po maliit lang ako, anlalaki ng mga tao dun eh. *grrr*
jdm: girlfriend ko dati ang tangkad, 5’7…ganito lang kami
*he holds up his pinky and his ring finger*
jdm: grabe naka 11 years na di ko pa siya nakakalimutan.
me: sino ba yung nakipagbreak (usi na kung usi)
jdm: siya
me: di na kayo nagkita ulit?
jdm: pumunta siya ng maynila. second year college pa lang ako nun, sa probinsya, ayun. muntikan na akong magpakamatay. nawalan ako ng gana para mag-aral. pero nakaraos din, ayun, 11 years na.
me: siya po ba yung pinunta nyo dito?
jdm: oo. 11 years nang paikot-ikot sa rota na ito, di ko pa rin mahanap. siguro may asawa na at anak. siguro di niya ako makikilala kapag nakita niya ako. 11 years na eh.
me: baka nag-iba siya ng anyo.
