Monday at Kasagingan Kapehan.
Scene 1: Mr. Random Guy fixing his laptop on our reserved table for Crisis Communication seminar discussion. Three students and one professor, some minutes before 9am.
Mr. RG to prof: Taga saang school kayo?
Mr. RG: Ah, kaya pala mukha kayong nerds.
Scene 2: Prof was stunned. Three students were torn between ohs, ahhs, and blahhhs. Moments after, silent mode. Maybe thinking about the short conversation.
SO THAT’S IT!
That pastor-looking random guy still spoke after that short conversation but we didn’t listen to him anymore so he buzzed off after fixing his stuff.
Scene 3: Ladies’ Comfort Room. Two students talking, namely Rea and Gold.
Rea: Grabe yun ha, mukha ba tayong nerds?
Gold: (Laughing). Kaya nga.
Rea: Kung nerds man tayo, tayo na ang pinakamagandang nerds sa balat ng UP.
— one line omitted —
Gold and Rea: (Laughing hard. )
Bottomline: I am so sure I do not look like a nerd. I look wholesome I know, but a nerd? Nawh! And yes, I’m brilliant. But I’m not a nerd! HAHAHA.
The comment is yet to be proven: compliment or sarcasm? Wtf! HAHA.
