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.
