No Buko, No Pie

Day 47: Two Guys


A year ago today, I did a house call on a sick guy at The Mandarin. He was starting to feel better, and so it was the first time he was in good spirits to thank me for the effort I have done for him for 3 straight nights. He was especially grateful because he was here working on Bourne Legacy and have no family around. He felt the “sacrifice” I made for him on the night of Feb 14 was noble.

The truth was – I never celebrate Feb 14. In fact, I turned down a date with a really nice guy that night. I’d rather check on these patients and made sure they were better. I proudly wear that choice on my sleeve.

As for really nice guy, we eventually went out, but that’s a different story and a different day.
