Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Gee For Ehem…

One day I get a message from this guy whose profile doesn’t indicate his age. However, he looks like someone in his early 20s.

18 Oct 2007, 18:35
Him: hi! kmsta?

19 Oct 2007, 11:46
McVie: Mabuti naman, thanks. :-)

(Siyempre, politeness naman ako. But then… silence for the next five days.)

24 Oct 2007, 12:55
Him: hi!

(Hmmm. Either this guy is experiencing Time ala-Groundhog Day or he’s the type who wants my replies to lend themselves to a conversation. O sha, pagbigyan. He’s not that cute, but not bad either.)

24 Oct 2007, 13:57
McVie: So what do you have in mind aside from numerous variations of greetings? ;-)

24 Oct 2007, 21:28
Him: i want you in my life

(Whaddapakshet?! Pero still, politeness ever pa rin.)

24 Oct 2007, 21:50
McVie: I see... in what way? :-)

25 Oct 2007, 13:41
Him: as a partner...

(Ay! Bagets pa nga ito.)

25 Oct 2007, 14:07
McVie: Well, we have to get to know each other more first. And better if we can be friends first. I don’t jump into relationships that easily. :-)

25 Oct 2007, 19:49
Him: yeah, its better if we'll be friends first... anyway, are we friends?

(Bagets na, in a hurry pa. Presumptuous, aren’t we?)

26 Oct 2007, 11:02
McVie: Of course not. Friendship needs to develop organically. We don’t even know each other enough yet. Time will tell if we can be friends or just acquaintances. :-)

(In other words, gudlak sa iyo.)

Pakipot. Yun pala, after three days, me blog na tungkol sa kanilang madamdaming pagniniig.:-)

ARYO: Actually, the blog entry is to ensure that nothing develops. It's called "sabotage".

Lol. Mcvie, be nice. It is the lot in life of older and more "wizened" gay men to mentor the younger generation. :P
