I was talking to Jess recently and we happened to discuss….surprise….MDs. I ended up making Jess practically roll with laughter. How? Well, let me share one of the many ways here 😉
We got silly and I started a list of possible ways MDs meet an untimely death not due to natural causes. Yes, HIV and sexually transmitted diseases came up. Also death from illnesses related to smoking and drinking. Uh huh, death from stabbing, gun shots or other forms of violence that resulted from an altercation or jealous clients/exes/wives/girlfriends/boyfriends/workmates came up.
I also kidded Jess that some of the MDs we know better avoid going out when it’s stormy outside. Why, Jess asked? Because they’re wearing way too much bling, I replied. Too much fake bling bling plus lightning = untimely demise. Ingat sila sa kidlat. They better beware of lightning. That made Jess laugh so hard.
It’s true however that MDs do tend to stack up on the bling. I personally don’t find it attractive when an MD does so. I even told Luigi to leave his bling bling at home when he, Red and Lito joined Jess, Pipay and myself for a buffet dinner. Luigi obliged and he certainly looked way better that night—–no MD aura at all.
The bling bling—-usually silver chain necklaces and/or bracelets—–reeks of MD aura. I remember how the people at the breakfast place looked at Sylvester and his bling. Also how Ramon had bling on during one or some of the times Jess asked him out.
I wouldn’t want to see a tabloid headline that reads: Macho Dancer, tinamaan ng kidlat—-PATAY! (Macho dancer, struck by lightning—DEAD!)
