Delectable Dee

I fumbled through my cellphone for the 6th time since getting inside the cab because I wanted to make sure that I had the right address for the church. I have been invited by Ate Kaith to be a godmother to precious Andi. There was a slight mix-up about the church's name and address and I was too excited I kept on pestering the cab driver about the correct address. He was so close to throwing me off the cab - I could tell because he was beet red already. Perhaps, the only reason he didn't because let's face it, he'd have more chance throwing a horse to the sea than actually kicking me off the cab. Not to mention that I still haven't paid him yet.

It's been almost a year since I last saw Ate Kaith and more than two years (I think) since I last had a decent face-to-face conversation with her. We used to finish each other's sentences back then (especially kung manaway mi ug people hahaha) so you could imagine how excited I was. Not only that, we have this after-cebu-a-long-way-to-go bond between us and you can't easily beat that.

I also had this mixed feeling of excitement and apprehension because I know Ate Aileen's going to be there as well. She's one person I have come to look up to since I found her site and I had these "what if she'll find me annoying" questions. What if she'll find me obnoxious and deranged?

When I got out from the cab, I looked around and saw another cab stopping behind my cab. I waited and saw Ate Aileen come out and got the "OMG OMG OMG" feeling rushing inside me. I went over to her and asked, "Ate Aileen?" She beamed and asked "Dee?" She's beautiful as I imagined her to be. She's full of warmth and happiness I didn't feel a moment of apprehension the entire day. She is a very lovely woman.

Surprise! Surprise! I saw Ate Therese wiggling her way out of the cab. I didn't know she'd be there as well! Imagine that! I have yet to see a picture of her that does her justice. She's very pretty. Her eyes are very expressive and they dance when she laughs. She's also got this very soft voice. I imagine her son must feel like being wrapped in soothing velvet everytime she'd lovingly talk to him.

Ate kaith, as always, a breath of fresh air. Generous laughs and witty quips, a familiar gregarious soul. I met her husband Ppip for the first time and now I know that Raf-raf took after him (ky Ate kaith ra siguro ang ka bugoy).

I had a wonderful time and I wish the day was longer. My jaw and cheeks ached from too much laugher but I woudln't have it any other way. I had the loveliest day spent with the loveliest people. I can't remember the last time I had so much fun than this.

I am constantly amazed by the blessings technology allows us to have. Who would have thought, eh?

I am tired and wanting to rest but my head is still swimming with today's wonderful experience. I can't seem to stop giggling as well. And wee-wee!

All's well that ends well.  Life is good!
