Delamar’s Brain Farts

May 19, 2009

Zing!

Filed under: Uncategorized — delamar @ 7:29 pm

I befriended two classmates in yoga class. They’re sisters, both moms, both very friendly and they both cheer up the ladies locker room with their laughter. Anyway, this exchange really cracked me up. I was still laughing in the car on my way home. It felt like it was a scene in a romantic comedy movie. Yeah, the movie in my mind, right? Here’s the funny conversation I had with one of the sisters…as I remember it…

Lady: Are you married, Delle?

(She asks me out of the blue)

Me: No, I’m not yet married.

Lady: Ha? Wait, how old are you na ba?

(I start to think I’m not going to like where this is headed)

Me: I’m 35.

(As I flash a big smile. Fine, I admit I was waiting for a compliment…lol)

Lady: Really?

Me: Yup, I’m 35.

(I say this smugly. But her smile fades quickly)

Lady: Boyfriend?

Me: None at the moment.

(She looks seriously worried and then says…)

Lady: Aba, e…anong plano mo?????

  6. hi delle! a co-worker asked me this a few days ago. eh pano kung wala na talaga dumating, ate? me: well, i planned to be the best single girl in town. Ano gawin ko magmukmok or maglupasay kasi wala? No one will make me complete but myself its just a matter of acceptance. I have come to terms na I will end up a soltera yata.Waaah. But who knows for u? Hope springs eternal, malay mo naman di ba? Goodluck.

    • amen… same here. am 34, i have long accepted that i may not get married. and am fine with it. as they say, no one or nothing should make you complete. you must be complete on your own, a whole person. yes, it’s just a matter of acceptance. happiness naman is also a choice. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Hahaha! Jeez, that’s a funny scene! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Galing mo ate Delle, you were able to handle the question very well.

    Looking at the bright side, Aiza Seguerra was born when her mom was past 40 already. And I have an uncle that’s a menopause baby, he’s just as old as my eldest sister who will turn 39 this June. (So you could just imagine my lola and my mom were laboring side by side in the hospital back then…)

    So, no worries. You still have lots of chances. ๐Ÿ˜€

  13. i hate hate hate hate hate comments like this! it’s as if there’s something wrong with you if you are not married. you should have told this lady whey she asked you, anong plano mo? — stay happy like i am now ๐Ÿ˜›

    i had the same experience, i went home to the province and a tita asked me… o you’re above 30 na, kelan ka ba mag-aasawa? i just smiled and nung tumalikod sya i said na pabulong — wag ho kayo magalala, hindi ko kayo imbitado pag nagkataon ๐Ÿ˜‰

  17. That is so funny!!! ABA, e ano nga ba Delle?!?! LOL! This reminds me of a former coworker/crush at work. He asked me, out of the blue, why am I single and I should be having babies at this age, by the way I am only 26. I told him, in a very serious way….

    “want to be the father of my kids then?” He turned red and told me that it was a good come back. I almost told him, “Nuh-uh honey…I am dead serious!”

    I guess that’s the price we pay for being single and FAMOUS at the same time. Hirap noh! teka, ikaw lang ang single and famous, ako single lang! walang kabuntot na famous! LOL!

  30. I’ll Always Be There

    In times of trouble,

    In times of need,

    If you are feeling SAD,

    You can count on me.

    I will give you a wink,

    Until you smile,

    give you a hug,

    and stand by your side.

    I’ll be there for you till the end,

    I’ll always and forever, be your friend!

  32. hi delle i also have a story nakasakay ko yung nanay ng classmate ko nung highschool.(married na ngayon yung classmate ko). I was asked kung may boyfriend na daw ako, (23 or 24 yrs. old yata ako noon)sabi ko wala. Aba ang sagaot ba naman “Abay iha baka hindi ka na makapag-asawa nyan.” I just smile. Buti na lang pababa na sya nung sinabi nya ito. Hay naku!!!

      • yes..i have to agree..they really are funny..you know, i’m only 18 but my friends keep asking me if i already have a boyfriend and i would just answer them with a laugh or a smile..

        i remember a text message i once received..it says something like single girls shouldn’t be so sad ’cause girls are like apples on a tree., and the boys, afraid of falling when they climb up the tree, afraid of being rejected, only reach for those not so good apples hanging low on the tree..and so the nice apples remain on top, like nice girls remaining single..you just have to wait for the one who will be brave enough to reach for you while you are sitting pretty on top of the tree…

        Comment by delamar — May 26, 2009 @ 7:53 pm

  33. Hilarious, it really made me laugh. Iโ€™m 24 and yet I never had a boyfriend. As in, NEVER! Lol. Of course I love family gatherings but every time my Titaโ€™s asked me about this boyfriend thing, I keep mum. Because I have nothing to share, feels like Iโ€™m pressured to have a boyfriend. Maybe, because my cousin and siblings has bonggang-bonggang love life even Iโ€™m older than the others. To make it worse, one of my Tita said that I should get married at 30 years old. Oh my gosh, talaga!
    But Delle, God above is just busy preparing the right guy for you, for me and for the single ladies out there. Lol.
    Youโ€™re beautiful inside and out, I know in my heart, though hindi pa kita nami-meet. Weโ€™ll pray for it, sabi nga ng ka-officemate ko pinagdadasal din daw yan. Haha..

  34. She’s so funny.. She’s like my mom.. When we were younger my mom always tells me and my sister not to go home pregnant dahil di nya raw kmi tatangapin. Now that we are older..
    What she tells us is kelan ba kayo mg aasawa or kelan kaya ako mgkaka apo?
    Sabagay minsan naiisip ko rin un.. exciting.. hehehe

  37. lol! รฑ_รฑ i thought conversations like that exist only in movies or in funny feel-good books. Ang kuleet nila. Naalala ko tuloy yung one quote I got from one entry dati (I just forgot who the quote was from),

    “I have always found myself with someone for the wrong reasons and alone for the right ones. I would rather be right.”

    You go delle! Anung magagawa nila e hindi pa dumadating? alangan naman kung sino na lang di ba? รฑ_รฑ You deserve someone worth waiting for.

  39. naku, sabi ko na kindred spirits tayo…same here, at 34, i do get the same questions. one time, me and my ever loyal girl pal talked about this, was complaining why do i get to be picked at and paired to whoever is available around, kahit walang chance ang mga boys, just so that i get hooked…she said tell them this, my friend, “you don’t need fixing”, you’re okay as you are… ikaw din delle! ๐Ÿ™‚
    but then, my answers would always be, tinatanung ko nga din sa sarili ko eh, kailan? sino? at gustong-gusto ko na nga eh… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cheers!

  40. hi delle,

    i also got a lot of these questions the last few years. one time, my dad even asked me where the guys i introduced to him before, i reasoned out the usual “were not meant for each other line…”. I think i already convinced him that he may not have an apo with me, haha…Frankly, am still looking forward to be with the one for me, but just in case it’s not His plan for me, I will be as happy being single too.

    ok lang yan delle…

    isipin mo na lang, you are still damn beautiful at 35 unlike some married women i know… hehehe…

    it’s better to be single kesa naman to be with someone and regret having that person beside you…
