At the Love Yourself Open Call Photoshoot, one of the organizers grabbed my arm and introduced me to one of their volunteers.
“McVie, this is O,” he said. “He has a crush on you.”
Then another organizer told me almost the same thing: “Hey, have you met O? You’re his type!”
I checked O out. Pleasant enough face, quiet type, seems like the kind who will quietly blend with the background if you let him. Nice ass. It’s not everyday that I find out that someone has a crush on me; I was never the crushable type. So I played nonchalantly and engaged O in conversation.
“So how did you get to be a volunteer here?” I asked.
He was hesitant at first. “I was invited by Sir He Who Will Remain Nameless For Reasons That Will Become Obvious Later to volunteer for this event,” he replied.
“Oh!” I said. “And how come you know He Who Will Remain Nameless For Reasons That Will Become Obvious Later?”
O smiled. “We’re both members of Big Manila.”
“What’s Big Manila?” I asked, naively.
“It’s an online community for chubs and chub-chasers.”
Ask and you shall receive. Seek and you shall find... out the answer, with a vengeance! LOL
So I wondered how he’d react to my next sentence. Smiling broadly, I asked him (again) nonchalantly, “So chubby pala ako?”
He just smiled.
Letche, hahaha! But come to think of it, even D said to me one time out of the blue, “Hon, I think I’m becoming a chub chaser.” I was going to pinch his singit but I realized he might actually like that.
Shet. Love Yourself ba ka’mo, ha? Ano nga yung letcheng URL ng Big Manila?! Charoz.
