Me and My Big Mouth

I was about to go on a birthday party somewhere in Tomas Morato last Saturday when I remembered earlier that I said yes on a singlehood party celebrated by my friend with my high school peers. I was saddened by the news a week before of what happened to her. I thought she has one of the best relationship among us, you know the type of relationship that beat the odds? And after I heard she’s blissfully in love then, I was happy for her. But really some things are not meant to be and I bet she’s better off being strong and brave rather than being fooled and played.

That’s not really my post but I have to make a good introduction though. Hehehe

So, I was about to come to this birthday party, in fact there were two invitations for me. But like most of you who’s been through this situation, you have to go to the one who invited you first and the one you said yes first. But for sure if I attended either I will enjoy each company. Unlike some whose reason for not attending is “I will not enjoy, so why bother?”

A friend texted me Saturday morning asking me what gift should we give to our friends who’re celebrating their birthday. I asked him, do we really need to? He said, yes! In fact he explained that our girl friends from our group should start receiving gifts from us male members since they (the girls) never forgets to give us one.

I said ok. I’ll pick up something somewhere and I’ll just share the tab with him.

And adding to that message, I asked him, “are you coming?”

And once he replied, “SAAN?” I knew I was doomed.

I waited for another sms from him, and when it appeared it says, may party ba? Saan? Hindi naman ako invited.=[

I asked him if he didn’t get any sms from the celebrant cause I am sure he’s on the list. I’m pretty sure he’s on the list or he’ll be invited.

He said, it’s ok. He’s kinda busy and he needs to finish reading something.

And mean me, told him that, I’m not coming to the birthday party either. I have to come to a different party with my high school friends the same night. I told him that he doesn’t have to worry because he’s invited to my birthday party and that’s 8 months earlier. Heheheh.

He said, hehe, ok enjoy ka lang. wag na tayo bumili ng gift. Hehehe!=]

Hahaha, that really made me laugh!

To explain the celebrant’s side, this is my hypothesis.

We were a group then because we entered med school the same year, we had the same section, same subjects. But due to some circumstances like reshuffling of sections and some failing subjects, some were already ahead of us, and most of us from that group were a semester behind. To the person that texted me, we are really close, since day one of med school up to now. We’re like brothers here. Maybe the celebrant didn’t really neglect of inviting some of them that were ahead of us. It was meant to be a small gathering though and the celebrant wanted to have it to people she’s associated or she can see every day. The one’s that she has lunches with, she talks face to face or she can relate to. Since it’s been a year now maybe lack of communication or having no commonality between the two is one of the reasons. And as some may say, I don’t know if it’s true, that you can be in a group but that doesn’t mean you can be really close to everyone.

I hope with what happened everything will be ok or it will pass just like nothing.

I really enjoyed that Saturday night though. I really miss my high school friends and few drinks and lots of bonding compensated the time that we missed.

this is not to worsen ur feeling doc ced, pero prob ko rin ito when i plan a very intimate party. 10 persons max. more often than not, we end up more.

pero interesado ako sa dieting method mo, kapatid.

gillboard said...

Ely said...

Ako un ah, kung alam ko di ako mag-eenjoy, di talaga ako pupunta. Once i say NO, yun na yun, hehe...

FerBert said...

pwede yun.. pwedeng kasama ka sa isang grupo pero hindi lahat ng nandun eh magiging close mo.. buti na lang ako mr. congeniality kaya laging imbayted kahit di ko sila kaclose.. haha

ced said...

@gillboard - siguro nga minsan as a celebrant, iisipin mo kung sino iimbitahan mo.

pero diba siguro kahit papano, you can ask, kung pupunta or hindi. as long na nainvite mo.

@ely - ganyan ako sa mga kabatch ko nung hiskul. sa mga close ko lang ako pumupunta tlaga.

ced said...

@fb - huwaw sikat! hehehhe

PoPoY said...

ced, i agree. sa isang group talaga though magkakakilala, meron talaga dung masasabing close sau or close kayo 2 or 3 or maybe 4 na kaclose mo talaga.

basta ang importante ndi ka nawawalan ng kaibigan. mas maganda yung nagogrow din yung frenship nyo :)

bad ka. nadulas ka sa frend mo hehhe :)

GODDESS said...

ced!! tagal ko di nakadalaw. kasi naman sobrang busy sa work.

wawa naman yung di invited. pero kasi sa lahat naman ng parties, prerogative ng host/hostess kung sino invite niya diba?

oh well... all's well that ends well.

Lawstude said...

kaya ako din eh pag di masyado kilala ang crowd, i made it a point na magsama o sumama sa isang kakilala para naman di magmukhang alam mo na. or better yet, just greet and go na lang. lols.

have a nice day doc.

acey said...

it's really an amazing event whenever nagsasama sama ulit ang mga HS buddies ryt? lahat ng kalokohan parang kahapon lang nangyari... wahhh miss HS life!

hehehe

Eyebags said...

nangyari na yan saakin. Most of the time, slip of the tongue. Hay mahirap tlaga pag magkakaroon ng exclusive na party, eh parang networking pa naman ang buhay. Parang friendster ba. whehe. Package deal pa.

Pero atleast may second party pa rin. Fall back.

Marcus: Bading Down Under said...

Don't you love those inexplicably uncomfy moments with matching foot in mouth? :-)

my-so-called-Quest said...

@juz - wb! musta naman ang summer vacation mo ah? hehehhe

salamat sa muling pagdaan=]


@eyebags - tama ka dun sa networking. hehehe ke hirap tuloy kung pano makisama ngaun=[

my-so-called-Quest said...

@marcus - tempting pero ayaw ko na. hehehe. nakakapahiya tuloy=[

wanderingcommuter said...

mukha ngang interesting... kailangan ko na talagang iconsider yan!!!

lunes said...

dapat kasi i trim ung networking.bawasan ng mga suma-sangang members. akward tlagang makisama minsan. pero u'll get used to ir.wehehe.

thejournicler said...

baka naman na-overlook lang...

haha...

or hindi talaga sila close ;p

my-so-called-Quest said...

@wandering - ang alin? hehehehe
belated happy bday ewik!

@lunes - pwede ba un? hehehe
parang ang choosey naman nun sa friends? heheh

my-so-called-Quest said...

@journicler - parang kilala kita...
hmmmmm....

sparkandstyle said...

Hi!

My friends and I came up with SparkandStyle, an online clothes shop for men and women (although we have more stuff for men right now). We're selling mostly concept tees obtained from up and coming shirt designers in Bangkok. All unique, all original.

We'd be thrilled if you and everyone reading your blog can drop by and shop with us.

Thanks! ;-)

> Vanny said...

musta na mr. big mouth? nyahahaha. =)

nagaganyan din ako eh.. so im ms. big mouth? err. hehe.

one time kc gumimik kame ng college friends ko den after two days, nakausap ko yung isa nameng classmate den i asked him something like "Bakit di ka sumama nung nagpunta kame sa blah blah blah.."

at ang sagot sa akin, hindi ko nga alam na may lakad pala tayo, pano ako makakasama? hnde man lang kayo nag iinvite.. tsk tsk.

o kaya nagugulat na lang yung mga hnde nainvite dahil sa mga pix na pinopost namen online. hehe. malay ko ba na hnde cla nasabihan. ^__^

> Vanny said...

ay teka.. bumalik ako.. may nakalimutan ako sabihin..

few drinks ba yung nabasa ko??

weeeh. kaya pala bangag ka kinabukasan ha! nyahahaha. =)

ifoundme said...

it's true. it does happen. there are instances talaga that in a group may minute group pa talaga... that actually causes a problem sa simula pero time comes that each member of the big group gets to understand that everybody has to have best friends at okay lang pala yun. minsan may nasasaktan sa mga decisions when hindi naisasama sa mga labas labas pero ganyan talaga.

ced said...

@saprkandstyle - i checked your blog and you have great stuff! i'll save some and buy soon!=]

do you need a model? hehe


@vanny - haha onti pa lang un. compared sa dati! haha

ced said...

@ifoundme - thanks for droppin!

for now i'm happy that i belong to a group pero kahit ako aminado i choose one or two whom i can share my secrets=]

Belen said...

Pag hindi invited, hwag na lang. nakakahiya pag nakita ka ng celebrant.

Iba talaga ang highschool freinds, hindi nagkakalimutan.

Ingat.
