Friend: May crush ka?
Me: Huh? Hindi no, guy.
He didn’t automatically assume I liked the opposite sex. Though I did, everything lies in the fact that he didn’t have a preconceived notion of my sexual preference. He left it up to me. And this was a casual encounter. It wasn’t a big conversation. No one made a big deal out if it. It was just matter of factly. So liberating, I was taken aback.
I miss Elbi, where technology was subpar because we didn’t live in the city but where everything else was future, in mindset and principles. (Except maybe about sex because y’all know Elbi people are primitive in that department. Lol.)
