Livin on a Prayer
Okay fine: I drink. Rarely. As in, swear!
Last Saturday night, my Speech121 professor, classmates and I set off at Club Mwah in Mandaluyong to comply with our “midterm examination.” As mandated by our prof, we are to write a critique on the club’s stage performance.
The two-hour show, I’d say, was hilarious than electrifying. I really liked how they managed to multi-task the entertainers with those intricately designed yet ingenious costumes.
The most awesome aspect would have to be the production design. Imagine, they managed to have a chopper-like thingum in their Miss Saigon spoof! Lol.
And so, Riki drove us to Embassy after as to ‘end’ the night. It was my first time coz I repeat: Imma nerd and nerds don’t party. And hell, it was fun. Except for the literal atmosphere of out-and-out nicotine, I didn’t feel so much disoriented, or say detached.
Speaking of nicotine, there were only about five of us (we were fully eleven) in the club who weren’t smokers. I don’t actually ostracize but when one of ‘em invited me to uhh TRY it, I went, “Are you kidding me?” Nevertheless, it’s just a small issue. I know right.
I admit though: I was tempted. (Seriously, thank you God for not making me do it.)
Pao especially was very much shocked upon seeing few of us puffing and drinking. Zaf, Nick and Stef were really startling with their vibe of so-got-used-to-it. Hours before, I told Pao “Come to Embassy, let’s just drink water. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke.” So I’m really sorry that you caught me sipping.
And so, it was Sunday. I didn’t go to mass. I told you I haven’t been attending Sabbath day recently and I feel so dispossessed. I hope I can offer at least an hour a week for Him next time. Sad. Sorry, biglang segue.
