sam milby

Pauwi na ako ng gym kanina. Had to stop by the mall to run some errands and then eat. After eating, I decided to stop by the record store to check if they already have some albums I’ve been wanting to buy.
Then this overly bleached fit guy comes in, a little talled than me. That face looked familiar, I thought. Paglabas ko ng pinto, nag-double-take ako. Putang ina. Sam Milby.
What you see is really what you get: Sam Milby is white. Naalala ko tuloy nung nakita ko din si Regine Velasquez sa mall. Regine is white. Kahit nga si Imelda is white.
I took a moment of silence, half a second, to remember all the melanin that have been flushed since the dawn of skin whitening. I took one last look at Sam Milby and left.
Another second longer and I would not have resisted the urge to punch him in the face. At isa pa, natatae na ako.

  1. Taena, trust your instinct pare. Gut reaction is the right reaction! You can always shit anytime. How many chances do you get to punch Sam Milby on the face? lol.
