Pero bakit ganun, noh? Tatamaan ka talaga sa sandaling pinaka hindi mo inaasahan. Magugulat ka nalang na yung bawat salitang binibigkas nung bwisit na gwapo sa harap mo, nagkakaron bigla ng background music (Free Falling ni John Mayer, ‘yung live version na tahimik at parang sinulat specifically para sa moment na ‘to).

Congratulations to all the pupils, congratulations graduates! It’s a special day for you, and even more so for your parents, guardians, and families who have worked hard in aiding to achieving your dreams. Give them a hug, a kiss, and lots of compliments (that hopefully you truly mean). Please invite me for more of these things - it was wonderful. Read my short speech below:
I saw you today from the other side of my car window. Waiting right below the street lamp where you and I once hailed a taxi together. It was a frigid January evening and the streets were cluttered with drunken flirts and a distant ringing of reggaeton. I’ve doused myself with enough whisky and had thought the night should be over early rather than later; these days I start my mornings before seven, with double pours of coffee, enough to keep me active though hazed, enough to jumpstart the day, enough to help me remember what life was like before you and I and before you and I was no longer.
