TOO LATE YET TOO EARLY

MY PLAN WAS TO BE HERE IN THE OFFICE AT 8AM,
BUT I WOKE UP AT 7:55AM FROM MY DRUNKEN SLEEP.

AT DAY TIME, A TRIP BACK HOME IS USUALLY 2 HOURS.
SO I KNEW I HAD NO TIME TO GET A QUICK SHOWER;
I JUST WASHED MY FACE AND TOOK OFF.
I THOUGHT IT'S OK IF I WOULD REACH THE OFFICE AT 9AM,
FOR THE SCREENING MIGHT START A QUARTER PAST NINE.
CAUTION: PAG NAGMAMADALI KA, MAAARING MADOBLE YUNG COST NG PAMASAHE.
CAUSE YOU'LL DO EVERYTHING PARA BUMILIS ANG BYAHE. TALK ABOUT MULTIPLE TRANSFERRING AND PAYING FOR THE EMPTY SEATS?
I REACHED HOME AT 9:20 (SO THAT'S HOUR TRIP HAD A QUICK WASH,
AND RUN MY WAY TO MY WORK PLACE, 
JUST TO FIND MANG BEN IN THE HALL WAY.

ME: MANG BEN! ASAN NA SILA.
MB: A PLEASANT DAY TO YOU.
ME: NASA PENTHAUS NA BA SINA MAM (HR HEAD) AT YUNG MGA BATA?
MB: HAVEN'T SEEN THEM YET; ONLY I AND BONG ARE HERE.
ME: NAPA-ISIP. HINDI KAYA AFTER LUNCH PA ANG SCREENING?
       NAPA-ISIP ULI. BAT BA INGLIS NANG INGLIS SI MANG BEN?! 

REALIZATION: PAG HINIHINGAL KA AT PAKIRAMDAM MO'Y HINDI SAPAT ANG PALILIGO MO, AUTOMATIC NA NATATRANSLATE SA ENGLISH ANG MARIRINIG MONG RESPONSE NG MGA TAO SA TANONG MO.


I QUICKLY RAN UP THE PENTHAUS AND FOUND AN EMPTY FUNCTION ROOM. I AM GLAD BECAUSE I LEARNED THAT I WAS JUST TOO EARLY FOR THE ACTIVITY. YET, I AM SO MAD ABOUT MY STUPIDITY. 
FIRST, I WAS TOLD BY THE HR HEAD THAT SCREENING STARTS AT 1PM. 
THEN, YESTERDAY, WHEN I FINISHED DOING THE DESIGN, 
I CHECKED ALL THE SCREENING FORMS AND CANDIDATES' PROFILES; 
I READ THAT SCREENING IS AT 9AM. 
KAYA ANG ALAM KO TALAGA, 9AM NA ANG SCREENING. 
OH ME. I SHOULD HAVE TAKEN IT EASILY.

REMINDER: MALAPIT NA ANG VALENTINE'S DAY. 

THE SONG "ALWAYS" BY ATLANTIC STARR GOT ME REMINDED OF THE APPROACHING HEARTS DAY. NARINIG KO LANG YUN SA DAAN.
Boy: Pwede bang tabi tayo kapag nagstart na ang quiz?
Girl: Bakit? Mangongopya ka na naman!
Boy: Hindi ah. Kasi I feel perfect when i’m beside you.
