December 29 – I went back to being a kid, complete with all the abrasions because of playing. It was fun, except for that abrasion.
My little cousins and I went to Fun Ranch in Pasig (near Tiendesitas) for a little fun. I really wasn’t expecting myself to play with the little ones in Fun Ranch’s gigantic indoor playground. I bought slippery socks (and when I say slippery, it’s REALLY slippery) and followed my little cousins around. When little Miel wanted to go down the spiral tube slide, I joined her. Well, this is where the abrasion comes in. As we went down the slide, my left knee was rubbing the slide walls the whole trip down. When I got out, it became so painful. I saw bits of skin standing out and the area was starting to redden. I sat down and stared at my abrasion, thinking that it’s a burn. My aunt gives me a bandage, and I didn’t play again. That, I think, was the one thing that I did that wasn’t childlike.
I enjoyed almost all activities in Fun Ranch. It was… woah I wish we had Fun Ranch 10 years ago! I had so much fun with the kiddies. Then mom took us all to Eastwood and we ate at Johnny Rockets. I ordered a Vanilla Milkshake teaser. Best milkshake eveeer! The waiter on OJT (I think his name’s Peter) was such a cutie! He was literally cute and he was really warm towards us, especially to my little loves. MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE HE’S GAY! Anyway, spaghetti, burger, fries, milkshake… Those were what I ate. Those were my favorite nomnoms ten years ago… 😀 We went home, and I cleaned my abrasion. I thought it was a burn so I applied burn ointment. I Google-ed… Abrasion. I removed the ointment, washed my wound and applied Betadine. I was in serious pain, but all is well.
I checked my Gmail, and I was shocked with all of my mail. I wanted to throw the laptop and throw a tantrum. I was really acting childlike. I wanted to cry like how Miel cried when they left our car (she’s that clingy). I wanted to go back to those days when the hardest problem to face was how to go out of the house to play with my friends (like, thinking of a reason to tell mom so that she could allow me). I met my childhood best friend Audrey on the 28th, and we just wanted to go back to childhood. We dislike the complicated world that we know now.
Whatever happened to us all? We were all kids before. We were so innocent, so pure, so simple, so good, so honest. What corrupted our minds? What made us lie, cheat, desire for too many material possessions, sin, and absorb all the evils of the word? Answer: growing up and thinking that children are so naive and shallow. Thus, a world of deepness and complexity. What happened to the joy of being a kid?
