i used to like this guy in college. he was a geek from the college of engineering. i like (still like) geeks.
so i sought his best friend’s advice on how to make him like me. even met him over dinner at this japanese resto along katipunan. yes, just to discuss what my crush liked in a girl.
“don’t wear shades,” his best friend advised me. “ayaw niya ng ganon.”
as of this moment i own six pairs of sunglasses. i can leave home without earrings, but i feel incomplete without shades.
so relieved i didn’t end up with that guy.
