I haven’t shared with you kung paano ako niligawan ni Papa O. Kasi naman, hindi niya ako niligawan!
Ako na ang easy to get!
Papa O was one of my many crushes in college. He’s actually a friend of my close friend, Hazel. Hi Hazel! By the way, nung tinanong ko si Papa O kung crush niya ako nung college, sabi niya hindi raw kasi mukha akong boy. Buwiset!
Anyway, nung college, hi-hello lang kami ni Papa O. We didn’t talk except if I was talking to Hazel and he was beside Hazel at that time.
Umiiwas daw siya sakin nung panahon na yun kasi I was running for a position in our student council. Mangangampanya lang daw ako. Buwiset ulit!
5 years after, when I was already in law school, my classmates and I went out for dinner. Sa Oody’s pa yun sa Greenbelt. Then, I saw him pass by. I remember telling Kitch, my classmate, pa na “crush ko yun nung college” sabay turo kay Papa O.
After dinner, I saw Hazel outside Oody’s with some friends. When Hazel talked to me, “sabi ko wala akong boyfriend ngayon, ireto mo ko!” Sagot ni Hazel (pointing to her friends) “sino gusto mo diyan?”
Eh andun si Papa O…siyempre sino pa ba pipiliin ko! Hazel then went back to her friends.
A few hours later, Papa O texted me. Yun na!!! Ako na ang nabenta!
And after a month of dating, kami na!!
Hindi man ako niligawan ni Papa O, bumawi naman siya after. I was his princess. “WAS” kasi si Addie na ang princess niya ngayon. Di bale, ako naman ang reyna ;-P
Nung nasa law school palang ako, super tiyaga na ni Papa O. From Las Pinas susunduin nya ako sa Diliman para ihatid lang naman sa Taguig.
Ganda ko noh?
He was my bar buddy. As in, he made sure that all my bar review materials, permit, etc. Are in order. While reviewing for the bar, dadalhan niya ko ng food with matching massage pa! Tapos nung lumipat kami ng house, ginawan niya ako ng study area sa may garage namin. At nung bumagyo at wala kaming tubig at kuryente for 2 weeks a few months before the bar, siya ang nagdadala ng tubig para sa amin.
On the month of the bar exams, he was my “alipin.” He made sure na okay na yung hotel room. Siya rin nag-aayos ng gamit and nag-che-checkout while I was taking the exam. And then after the very stressful exam, paglabas ko ng La Salle, andun na siya sa may waiting area, holding an umbrella with a big smile on his face. Lahat ng pagod ko, nawala.
Ang dami ko pa kuwento about Papa O pero baka maging nobela na ‘to! Kaya yan na muna ha 🙂
Papa O, kahit na napakakuripot at serious mo sa buhay, I want to thank you for everything… For being my knight in shining armor, a loving husband and a great daddy to Addie.
Happy birthday, Papa O!! I love you 🙂
