Musical Monday: True love’s kiss
Monday Mayhem follows

goodness gracious! my students are smooching in front of me. i have to turn my silly swivel chair towards the window where all i see are speeding cars on the expressway. scraping off some cynicism against february 14th… lol!

That’s my latest FB shoutout. The ensuing conversation had been fun.

From a friend: i thought that only happens in the kg and primary level!

Me: it’s rather intense among undergrads. the guy happens to be the most goodlooking and smartest. and guess who did he kiss? the plainest, academically bottom girl in class. that’s why i still believe in fairytales. THEY ARE HAPPENING LIVE BEFORE MY CRITICAL VISION lol!

Friend: fairytales are better in movies, u reckon? Of course films present stories better [that] than what we see around. If not corny, nakakainggit! (making me jealous!)

Me: the lecture room scene i witnessed hours ago could compete with the magic of disney portrayals. for the first time in my tattling career i was speechless. my sometimes machine gun mouth really had to stop at what’s unfolding.
Friend: oh…gracious prof! It’s vd anyway.

Me: yeah but i didnt expect anything like that to happen. i must have gotten this cynical over the years whoa! lolxxx

Before all this though I already decided which song to feature in my Valentine MM post. I separate fairy tales from my cynicism against real life love. The FB chat simply coincided with this earlier choice, and Facebook friends probably do not know that my belief in fairy tales extends to music like this. *smiles*
