You just gotta say it when you feel it

I had a good laugh with a colleague today.

He was sharing some bits and pieces about his relationships, then and now.

But the highlight of the conversation would have to be this – his first girl friend way back in high school.

To this day he believes that he was charmed with a love potion by taking a sip from the girl’s Coleman. 🙂

After a few months, the spell died down so he found himself really, really wanting to let loose.

So, being young, the only escape was to get school work in the way.

His exact line for freedom was:

“I’m sorry but I have to focus on my Noli Me Tangere*”

Then and there I fell on the floor. What the hell?!



Noli Me Tangere (Touch me Not), is a Spanish-language novel written by the Philippine National Hero, José Rizal, that is credited with the awakening of nationalism among the Filipinos of Rizal’s time.

The Philippine education system has required schools to include Noli Me Tangere and Rizal’s other novel, El Filibusterismo, as part of the curriculum.
