Loser ar loner?
"Would you rather be called a loner or a loser?" A friend had asked me.
I thought last night would be another lonely night for me. Saturday night and I had no work, no plans, no one to be with, and no where to be! Dinner with the Lim Association and the Chinese Chamber of Commerce for the moon cake festival hardly counts. And adding the fact that I only won Php 160.00 (all in tiny twenties), I had given up hope for a more exciting Saturday night. And then, ting! My baby cousins saved me and my pathetic social life! I say baby because they're all way younger than me. But I don't caaaaaaaaaaarrrrreeee! We ate some cake and spent the rest of the night singing and dancing and jumping at a kareoke bar.
My boyfriend called and made fun of my loser night. Well, I admit. Technically speaking, hanging out with younger kids on a Saturday night would still put me on the loser category. But like I said, I don't care. I missed hanging out with my cousins and I wouldn't have last night any other way! Besides, I told him I would have hung out with him if he were here. But he's not. And I do miss him more than he could possibly know.
My answer to that question was that I would rather be a loner rather than a loser just because, well, being a loner sounds so much better than being a loser. My friend on the other hand said that she'd rather be a loser. Why? Because at least she'd have friends. Loser friends, but friends around her all the same. "Who cares what people think?" She had said.
Well said. :)
