Too Much Coffee
At the LRT…
It was my first time to ride the MRT-LRT combo alone. I was thrilled when I realized that I can ride in the females-only section so I ran to that area. I noticed that a lot of the women were packing up like sardines in one entrance so I decided to go farther. The moment I sat down, noticed that the women were staring at me like I was some sort of an oddity. Then I smelled the stench. The old woman beside me must’ve been sick or something. She didn’t have that old woman smell. She had the scent of illness. I looked around and saw a rope divider. Hm…what was that for? Then I looked right in front of me, where a sign read: THIS SIDE OF THE CAR IS ONLY FOR THE SICK, PREGNANT, AND WOMEN WITH CHILDREN. That was when I finally noticed that the women, who were staring at me, were bursting at the seams. I sighed, took a deep breath, adjusted Macbook Mi-Chan on my lap so they could see my stomach, and then blew up my tummy. I rubbed it for effect, too.
Toast of Mensa
Again, I blame the coffee. I had been in the business of talking for as long as I can remember, that it came as a shock when I found myself nervous up there. I just delivered my first speech, and I forgot 50% of it. Thank goodness, no one seemed to have noticed that the reason I had zero “Ahs” was because I would pause and smile whenever I felt it coming. My evaluator, who praised my confidence, had no friggin’ idea that my hands were shaking.

On the contrary, the LRT serves a pretty good section of the commuting public.
The only people who have the right to curse it are the ones who’ve actually ridden it.
