Just the other day, Engel went out with his straight friends when he got invited to a boy's night out. No girlfriends or women in the group. Just men drinking and talking. Like they used to do back when they were still working together. They know about Engel and are fine with it, so he's always invited. But that was the only time he was able to join them.
FRIEND1: Pre, yung bago kong officemate, ang ganda pre. Mukhang Sarah Geronimo na tisay. Sexy pre, tas ang ganda ng hubog (making hand gestures like the shape of a woman's boobs).
FRIEND2: Ah talaga, maganda ba si Sarah Geronimo? Parang di naman.
FRIEND1: Uy, ang sexy na kaya nun ngayon. Pero mas maganda pa rin yung officemate ko pre. (Showed a stolen picture of the girl in his phone).
FRIEND3: Pwede! Pwede!
ENGEL: Okay lang. Parang di ko naman nakikita yung Sarah Geronimo.
FRIEND2: Medyo naman, parang yung hugis ng mukha.
FRIEND3: Maalala ko, nung isang linggo si (girlfriend) bumili ng DVD ng You Changed My Life. Nakakatuwa. Kinikilig-kilig ako. Hehehe.
FRIEND1: Oo. Nakakakilig nga yun, pinanuod namin yun, diba Eng's sa Greenbelt.
ENGEL: Hahaha. Yun yung may autistic sa may sinehan. Naalala ko yan.
FRIEND2: Nakakakilig si John Lloyd! hahaha
ENGEL: Uy, nakita ko yun in person, natulala ako sa kanya, in fairness. Starstruck.
FRIEND1: Totoo ba yung chismis na sila ni Ruffa?
FRIEND3: Oo daw. May pictures daw na magkasama sila sa America yata yun.
FRIEND2: Ah talaga. Di sila bagay. Mas gusto ko sila ni Sarah Geronimo.
This went on for 20 minutes. Straight men talking about showbiz stuff. Engel tried to talk about the La Salle losing streak, but that did not last long. They talked about Marianne Rivera, then Rosalinda, and how Geoff Eigenmann is not fit to be anyone's leading man because he sounds like a retard. Engel laughed when he realized that his friends are talking about these things too seriously.
Then everyone went quiet for about a minute.
FRIEND 3: Napanuod niyo yung UFC nung isang linggo?
