GOOD WEEKEND

It started Friday night when Engel was dismissed early last Friday night. While he did not push through with his plan to go to either Malate or a gay bar, he still did like how his weekend went.

He didn't have any sleep yesterday. After he went home early morning last Saturday, he blogged about it and then saw the latest episodes of Glee, Gossip Girl, How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory, all of which were really awesome. But that's not the point of this post.

The best part of Engel's weekend was the afternoon of the same day. He went out with Joy.

It's been four months since Engel and Joy went out. He enjoys every man-date he has with the guy because the guy's fun to be around with. Engel's no longer in love with him, but that doesn't mean he can't look forward hanging out with Joy. He was a little disappointed though that Joy's on-again-off-again girlfriend was with him. Not that Engel dislikes the girl. He does, she's way more likeable than Joy's other ex. Way more likeable.

Anyway the reason for them seeing each other is as usual him being a good friend. Engel won't give any details of what he did, but let's just say he is really a good friend. Engel feels special around Joy, because he's really nice. The guy's kind of a homophobe (not the bad kind), but he's really comfortable whenever he's with the writer. Joy doesn't find it awkward asking about the author's lifestyle around other people. He's even willing to pretend to be a boyfriend (and no, the guy's not even bi-curious, not even a tripper). And one more thing, even if Engel's the third wheel, the attention's still most of the time his (she knows Engel's gay and at one time proposed to her man).

What's funny is Kate (the on-again-off-again girlfriend) points out alot of things the two of them have in common. Girls notice those little things that boys don't even care about, and the writer thinks those little things maybe the reason why they get along very well. They are both a little weird. Their hairstyle is practically the same. They walk the same way. They even talk in almost the same fashion.

They could've hung out longer, Joy wanted to, but Engel had to decline. They saw a movie and had coffee. But Engel still has to do his shopping.

Nevertheless, yesterday was still a day the author won't forget.

Engel always wanted a brother. Guess Joy was the answer to that prayer.

john stanley said...

there's joy when engel's with joy.

and yes, it's good that it transcended to brotherhood.

engel said...

john: not all the time. maybe now that i've accepted we could only be friends. two years ago was a different story! =P

EW: me too! =D

KUYA Dom: ikaw ba yun? =P

xtian: i don't have relatives na ka-age ko. wait, i do have an uncle who i treat as a big brother. kaya lang nasa US siya.

connection. it makes us see who we are in others, doesn't it?

i'd like to believe that ex lovers could still be friends. :)

<*period*>; said...

hmmm,swerte ko rin kasi may kuya na ako..kuya engel, pwede rin ba kitang maging kuya?!

engel said...

period: NO!! just kidding. of course it's okay. although i don't think i'll be able to help you as much as your other "kuya" could.

maxwell: joy's not my ex. maybe that's why we are very good friends.

stunted male: it does. i just realized that. thanks! and thanks for the visit. =)

Maxwell5587 said...

@Engel: ooops, i'm sorry. but anyways, you get the point. hehehe. ;)

' indeed, it doesn't matter where you are, what's important is who you're with..
- read one of your replies to the comments above.. not because a person's an ex doesn't necessarily imply the person is disqualified to be a good friend.. =)

wanderingcommuter said...

my best friend is a straight guy too, though i didn't fall inlove with him. i somehow know how you feel...

engel said...

WC: thanks.

Jedi: of course. but the thing about me though, is that i never become really close with any of my exes. maybe that's my choice or maybe i was just too stupid back then. but if ever i do have another one, maybe i'll try that out.

maxwell: ;)
