Cheers to the “You” that they don’t see

CHEERS

So we speak about the multifaceted human being….you know the one with multiple yet contradictory sides… sides that we can’t  imagine…sides that we envy…sides that we love to  hate…

But here at the “The unpolished cut” , we would like to toast to that invisible side of you…you know that side that the rest of us don’t see ….because its that side of you that only you know…your imperfect little secret…

So we say cheers to the you who recites her words for her first date, rehearsing exactly how the conversation will pan out but ditches that script when the date eventually occurs…

… To the you who quickly picks up that last piece of chocolate when no one is watching, after its gotten a taste of mother earth’s very own unpolished floor

…To the you who quietly creeps to the  kitchen in the middle of the night for that last piece of cheesecake …

… To the you who picks her nose and disguises it with a scratch…

….To the you who says “okay I can do this” before an important moment…

….To the you who says no when everyone else says yes…

….To the you who releases her breathless stomach after stripping off that super tight dress..

…Cheers to the you that movies can only attempt to portray  but comes naturally to you…

 

… CHEERS TO THE YOU THAT JUST DOES YOU…

love always : The Unpolished Cut

“The best moments in life are UNPLANNED”

Image

Sometimes you gotta ditch the schedules….the checklists….the to-do-list…the expectations….and just gooooooooooo!

It begins with a long drive to nowhere….I had just reconnected with a friend from high school through FACEBOOK (thank God for it)….on second thought we were actually never really friends in high school. He was that weird guy that no one really spoke to, but I had always been intrigued by him…there was just something about him…although any interaction between us began and ended with a “HELLO”…

Then one day we randomly had a conversation on Facebook and then decided to extended the conversation in a more personal manner …So we met up and decided to just drive…..(I know you probably thinking that was risque of me but my instinct just told me to go…and like they always say trust your instincts, right…?)…so we drove…no maps…or GPS… of where we were going or what we were going to do…we just followed the road…

Eventually we reached the end of the road and we decided to just park there…yep right there in the middle of nowhere …amongst the greens and the unknown…  So we decided to sit on the roof of the car and admire from above…for a moment we just sat in silence…listening to nothing really…but that was the beauty of it…like we spend so much time talking,…some times even competing with one another to do so…talking on top of each other’s voice and never really just listening…For some reason we think its awkward to let seconds go by without saying a word…but that is the strange thing, it wasn’t awkward at all…it was like we were conversing but not through words…it was like our spirits were talking to one another…having a big fat conversation through our souls….sharing small laughs that often go unnoticed… I was listening and understanding…(two things we take for granted)…I could see the picture clearly…it was almost like we step outside of ourselves…..

…then after a while, he uttered “I am so glad we re-met”…because that is exactly what was it a re-encounter…only this time our conversation did not end with a “HELLO”…he continued “I don’t know you but I know you”…..”Someday I would like to be more than your friend”…”But right now I would really like to continue soaking in your energy”…call it cheesy or corny but I thought it was really sincere…so honest…soooooo unexpected…and for some weird reason, in that moment…it became clear to me  what I wanted and did not want…Anyway we carried on talking with brief moments of silence and then eventually we drove to nearby bar and drank the evening away…well he watched me drink because he couldn’t….and eventually we returned to the routine of our day-to-day grind.

…Indeed the best moments in life are unplanned but what I realized even more is that sometimes we find ourselves in other people’s confessions…

So go on drivvvvvvve…you never what you will discover or rediscover…I DARE YOU

 

 

” That moment when you’re caught talking to yourself”

That awkward stare you get when you’ve been caught talking to yourself…

So the other day  I am standing in front of the mirror of a public toilet, speaking to myself …trying to make sense of a situation I had encountered. It had been pondering in my mind and I just felt that I had to let out…hoping to find clarity on the matter…So there I am going at it, saying…”but what just happened”…”Did he really mean what I thought he mean’t”?…”what if…”…so like…”…twisting my hair…rolling my eyes… straight face…it was going down in that moment…like I was having a proper serious conversation with myself…lol…hahahaha…Ana in my mind it did not even occur to me that I was talking to myself…I was just wanted to let it all out, blow some steam…Sure, I could’ve called a friend but I wanted to make sense of it to myself first….keeping the thoughts in my head was just not working…

….But little did I know that I had an unexpected listener, who had been comfortably chilling on the toilet…listening to every word I had said…So she walks out the door, comes straight at me and says “I think you need someone to speak to”…”I can assure I could be more of help than the mirror”…*so embarrassing*…In that moment I just thought I was soooo abnormal…but then we laughed it off…”Gosh she must have thought that I am so weird”…

And then I thought “No man ” (trying to justify it in my head) …I have seen plenty of people talking to themselves in their cars, while walking on the street, in a taxi, a bus…you name it……Eish but it does look weird from the outside…although it does not feel that way when you are doing it…

So I say…”kick the stares to the curve”… say …”Excuse me can’t you see that I am having a conversation with myself here” …laugh alone if you must (okay don’t make it too obvious now)…in fact have a glass of wine while you at it… LET IT ALL OUT…

So tell what are some of the funniest…strangest things you have heard from people talking to themselves?
