People are prettiest when. . .

People are prettiest when they’re smiling. People are prettiest when they frown and pout because their favorite foods are all sold out. We are prettiest whenever we commit funny mistakes then laugh at them instead of feeling bad.

Ilan lang ang mga iyan sa mga bagay na na-realize ko no’ng nakita kong sumimangot iyong lolo na bibili sana sa’min ng siopao kaso naubusan siya.

Oo, nagbebenta kami. At oo, nacute-an ako kay lolo.

Ever since that day, inaabangan ko na’ng bumili si Lolo. Minsan pa nga eh, pati iyong saging na para sana sa fruit shakes namin eh napagdidiskitahan niyang bilhin. Pinagbibigyan na rin namin siya, matanda na kasi eh.

I just thought that it’s not everyday I see a person like that. It might not be a big deal for others pero sakin, oo, big deal iyon.

Because these are just few things that make us humans. And not everyone notices the teeny tiny bits in our being that makes us human.

For example, not everyone notices how my shoulders shake whenever I laugh. Not everyone notices how my eyes smile along with the twitching of the corners of my lips. Not everyone finds the creasing of my forehead entertaining. Not everyone can notice the tapping of my fingers whenever I’m listening to my favorite songs.

Not everyone notices the proofs that we can feel – happiness, sadness, anger, fear, desperation, love…kahit ano pang emotions ‘yan. Siguro nga’t totoo iyong nabasa kong post sa Facebook na may mga emotion tayong mga tao na hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa rin napapangalanan.

But the point is, we can feel those emotions – may tawag man sa kanila o wala.

At kaya rin siguro tayo gano’n magmahal…because we think that our ‘significant others’ consider us humans and appreciate even our unwanted mannerisms, hobbies, and physical attributes.
