Once upon about 4 decades ago, when most of this rowdy bunch were fresh from uni/college, we somehow found our way to a fabled cave in Paseo de Roxas where minds, hearts and souls were further formed to be a cross between scholars and warriors. Attitudes were further fixed, wits were challenged and readied further for the outside world. You know and still be smooth. It was not easy but we made it work.
Last night, at a hosted dinner for a good man and his lady love, we chided ourselves about how another couple of zeros were added to our annual targets, the exciting technologies that us, consumers will soon be living with, that our gym routine has significantly been altered to walking around a few blocks in the neighborhood to get those blood cells going. Now a couple of decades since we parted, we know we’ve experienced more of the outside world. Ok, a few more cuts and bruises here and there, acquired along the way. Medicines have replaced the health and muscle-building supplements. And progressive lens have replaced the tortoise shell Tom Cruise-made famous Ray Bans.
Now, this life’s progression called reunions, come to think of it, made our dear folks busy for a few decades. So, it seems that we are following suit. Of course we talked about the people who were not present! Won’t be as much fun if we hadn’t, would it? But nothing racy, I assure you. We are not that kind. All in good fun.
This photo says it all. Despite it all, we all can still be hams. And it’s perfectly alright.
Till the next.
