Anyway, to make the long story short, I'm still not getting better after two weeks of having colds. I still have the sniffles, though not as bad as before, and I feel like there's a cough here that's just waiting to happen. I've been coughing during random times of the day. Must drink cough syrup or tablets to prevent this from happening - drinking before diagnosis is of course a manifestation of my being a hypochondriac.... but with basis. This isn't one of those times na I left work, went to Makati Med Emergency Room to have myself checked if I had Swine Flu 'coz yes, I was that paranoid. I even told the nurse... I think I have swine flu. Haha. Ounce of prevention, they say, is better than cure...
Hmm... maybe also 'coz my resistance is low because of 2000 and Thin... not good.
Anyway, today was a super hectic day as always - meetings, meetings, and more meetings. I had some deals to seal, emergencies to fix, presentations to listen to, and had to digest a lot of marketing 101s. It's hard when you're not super studied in your field but that's essentially what you call school of hard Knox. There's no better teacher than experience after all...
4 WAYS OF LEARNING (according to Micho, circa 2008, when she came back briefly from Europe...)
- Carrying Conversations
- Reading Books
Before I get into the details of what I ate today... I just want to ruminate on a certain thought. Handshakes. I was never really good at it. You never really know what kind of handshake guys go for, or what they're gonna give. Is it the slanted brother handshake? Is there a follow through after that when you pivot your hand from slant to straight position, or do you end it with the slant? How about when you give the backside of your palm coz your hands are full? Or you punch it out? And don't even get me started with that slant, then straight, then fingers hook mumbo jumbo.
See, these things I never really got the hang off, so sometimes, it seems awkward when I greet others. It's easy with girls coz you just make them beso, and I'm the beso type of guy. But I'm already awkward to begin with... a handshake is supposed to break the ice but I'm always urong sulong and tentative when it comes to handshakes. Wala lang... random thought.
Just came from David's thing in Ponti and I had to make several handshakes with people. I mean I've known them for years, they're my good friends and all... but I dunno... sometimes, I find myself dreading the handshake for fear na I don't do it right. Haayyy...
WHAT I ATE TODAY:
-1 pc. spicy chicken from Jollibee
-3/4 cup of brown rice from my house
Okay, I know this is two pieces... but here's what I left behind to give to one of the secretaries...
- Half a plastic cup of Amber's Spaghetti
- 1 glass of Lemonade
- 1/4 glass of Iced Tea from Gram's Diner
*After my meeting, I headed super late to David and Alfie's joint birthday thing at Ponti's. David and Alfie have been my buddies since High School. I wasn't about to miss their thing. Though apparently... there's another one this Friday. And Alfie had already left when I got there. Sorry Alf! Duty called.
SIGHTS AND SOUNDS:
*Somebody channeling some Sadako vibes...
* I'm seriously dozing off... lapit na...
