Memories of an Idiot

I was looking at the last few posts and they've been bordering to near dead-seriousness already. Before my sanity goes overboard, here goes ...


Whenever I feel like an idiot (like today), i try to recall the most idiotic moments of my life and think to myself "Boy, today could have been much worse". And so, here i am reminiscing...


...to a cute lit major:

Girl: "...right now im reading Hugo"

Me: "...Oh I love his works!"

(I knew Les Miserables was NOT Pronounced Less Miserabless)

"In fact Ley Miserabley is really one of my favorites :)"

...to a married woman:

Me: ...ey! Ur Anita Kurishima* right?

MW:...actually, its Anita Quirino now.

Me: ...so...ahhh... Why did u change your name?

MW: Duh.

*Names have been changed to pretend my innocence

...to a gorgeous freshman student council wannabe:

Girl: ...hey wait! Ive talking to you for the past hour... ARE you telling me that you are NOT a freshman??!

Me: I thought it was a good pickup line.

Little Homer Simpson Voice at the back of my brain: DOOOOPE!!!

...while ordering at the McDo counter while dripping wet after being drenched by a July Supertyphoon:

Counter Girl: "1 Hot choco. Anything else sir?"

Me: "I'll have a hot fudge sundae."

Counter girl: "..."

**gives me the most incredulous look i have ever seen on a counter girl**

...to a most honest waitress who picked up my wallet and called me up to give it back:
Me: "Thanks."

(Counts wallet's money in front of her.)

Me: "Thanks again!"

...while ordering at the Jollibee drivethru counter:

Drivethru girl: "Sir, One Champ meal, go large, One palabok fiesta, One hot fudge sundae and Peach Mango Pie... Anything else sir?"

Me: "Thats all."

DTG: "How about your drink?"

Me: "Diet Coke"

DTG: "..." **Gives me the most incredulous look i have ever seen on a drive thru girl**

Me: *sheepish voice* "...im on a diet?"

...while calling a pretty girl at her house AFTER her phone curfew:

The Sleepy Dad Answering: *Yawn* "HELLo?" *Yawn*

Let me pause at this stage. Normally, when i dial the wrong number, or when someone i dont like answers the phone, I usually have a built in excuse randomly picked from my ever dependable mental list of excuses. And here i go using one of them. Back to the story.

Me: "Uhh... is this ...Tech Support?"

The Sleepy Dad Answering: "This is tech support."

Me: *panicky voice* "Oh shit"

The Now Awake Dad Answering: "Who is this please?"

*Dial Tone*


Which only goes to show that i am at my mentally worst whenever theres a pretty girl involved... or im just damn hungry.

I will end this public show of humiliation while you still has some respect for me...

As if there ever was... :)

i have more respect for you now that you confessed those "memories" of yours..haha. only a handful out there have the guts to actually admit those kind of things :)

this post reminded me why my cousins used to call me, aya the idiot.. while driving i decided to sing along (really loud) to the craig david song, "3 B one, and the crowd say bo seleta.." then i found out right after that it was "Re-re-wind..."

enjoy your weekend!

I'm sorry for being intrusive in to your blog. But I am Melissa and I am a mother of two that is just trying to get out of an incredible financial debt. See my hubby is away in Iraq trying to protect this great country that we live in, and I am at home with our two kids telling bill collectors please be patiant. When my husband returns from war we will beable to catch up on our payments. We have already had are 2001 Ford repossessed from the bank, and are now down to a 83 buick that is rusted from front to back and the heater don't work, and tire tax is due in November.

I'm not asking for your pitty because we got our ownselfs into this mess but we would love you and thank you in our prayers if you would just keep this link on your blog for others to view.

God Bless You.
