DISCLAIMER: Before you rant “bitter” on this, make sure you have read everything first.
Since the last time my dogs screwed up my shades, I never owned and wore a new one, until my sister gave her that eyewear apparel to me – an oversized aviator type which I used more as a props but I had no choice but to wear whenever I’m hitting a public place.
There are 2 reasons why I used to wear those glasses: either the sun rays are too high for me, and just want to pretend that I don’t see much people around. It’s like the spotlights on me; I am the only king of the world. Nah, but that’s too selfish. I just hate the fact that seeing people like those ugly goons, trying hard salesmen, and over-PDAing couple. Well, let’s focus on the latter.
PDA has a lot of meanings though this time I am pertaining to the term Public Display of Affection. Now, why the hell I am affected with this one? Because I’m single, loveless (and bitter, as judgmental idiots would tell) or I am just too conservative, and sick of seeing those 2 lovers acting indecently to the public? Last reason will tell the best answer for me (however, I’m not even a conservative fella either).
Sometimes I am thinking if this is already a disease, since irregular behavior of one’s considered as such case. Just as similar to people who can’t help themselves but picking other person's belongings (in other words, stealing) or to somebody who’s over-obsessed at sex. (I forgot the medical term, but I saw that at Ben Tulfo’s show BITAG)
Maybe I am living in a wrong world, where LOVE becomes excessive. And come on, it’s not a good thing that way, man! Who would love to see people almost making out in every park or street couch available as their lip-locking movement are shown like you’re watching a love scene at the movies? Besides, that’s not part of our tradition. That’s for westerners, and liberation does not require a colonial mind-set.
And stop berating me a bunch of romance-like excuses like “It’s their life, mister! Why do you need to criticize their asses?” ‘cause I might tell “FUCK YOU, kid. There are appropriate places where people are only allowed to cuddle and where to be all happily fucked up.”
What is my point here? Act decent to the public, and I don’t care if you two are lovers. A lot of people may look up on you, especially if you are a bunch of entertainers documenting a reality show on the streets. Have some a bit of privacy for the two of you, will you? Besides, there are best things in LOVE which are better off kept in private (and that are why SEX is one of them, right?) There are places where holding hands are considered, and where hugging is simply unacceptable.
Okay. I’m out to somewhere else. Damn it. Where’s my shades?! GANGWAY! (shouting at the couple) Well, it’s better to have it that way than to mess up with them and say things like in Filipino, “Ang kitid na nga ng kalsada, nakaharang pa kayo?! Tabi nga! Buti sana kung nagbabayad kayo ng buwis kahit sa VAT man lang!”
