As I told you at the end of my article yesterday, I have something very important to announce today. Something happened last week when I was in Cebu. I didn’t expect it, nor did I go there looking for it to happen, or even hoping for it. Sometimes, though, you simply cannot fight what Mother Nature has in store for you. You have to take things as they come even if they are not what you expected.
So, here it goes…
I have a new girlfriend in Cebu
Yes, you read it correctly, I now have a girlfriend in Cebu. I met somebody new in Cebu, and we hit it off. I talked to Feyma about it, I don’t keep secrets, you know. I was happy when she was actually kind of excited about it!
Without further talk, here is a picture of me and my new Cebu girlfriend:
Her name is Juliet! That’s right, she is Rusty’s Philippine Monkey! To be honest, I think that the way things worked out, it turned out that Rusty was actually a bit jealous of the relationship that Juliet and I built up while I was in Bogo!
Before heading to Bogo, I had told Rusty that I just might kidnap Juliet and bring her back to Mindanao with me. Rusty told me that he was not worried, because Juliet doesn’t like people too much, in fact, that she only likes him. She can be somewhat mean or jealous of other people. In fact, if Jessie shows affection toward Rusty, Juliet gets mad at her! Rusty has even said that Juliet wants an exclusive relationship with him.
So, when I first went to Rusty’s house and saw Juliet in the cage, I approached her with some caution, and held my hand out to her. She grabbed me and wanted to bite me. But, I persisted a bit, showing her that I was not a threat to her.
Later in the day, when we were going for a long walk, Rusty got Juliet from the cage to bring her along. Juliet rode on Rusty’s head along the way, and from time to time she would jump down to the ground to walk on her own (she was on a leash). Along the way, we stopped to buy some balut (a partially developed duck egg that is popular here) for Juliet to eat. While we were waiting for Jessie to get the balut, Juliet jumped from Rusty’s shoulders over to me! She climbed up on my shoulders, and started nibbling on my ear, which Rusty said was a sign of affection. Rusty was definitely a bit jealous now, because he said that Juliet doesn’t even do this to him! After a short time, Juliet went back to Rusty, but the new relationship had already been established!
Juliet loves MindanaoBob!
We went out to the pier on the bay in Bogo, and Juliet ate her balut (2 of them!). After eating, she kept going back and forth between Rusty and I, as if she could not choose between the two of us. She also kept rubbing her underarm on my head, which Rusty said was her way of “marking” her territory, and showing that I was hers!
So, the deal is set, I indeed have a new Cebu girlfriend! I am so excited, and I enjoyed Juliet’s company so much! I hate to break Rusty’s heart like this, but I hope that he will continue to be my friend!
Me and Juliet… more relationship development is yet to come, I’m sure of that!
