I lost my phone the other night. Those I’ve told that I’ve lost the thing, of course, asked me how I lost it. I tried to relate the circumstances prior to the loss to lessen the uncertainty, as well as pave way to theories and rationalization, but at the end, that was all I could tell them. The knowledge of how I exactly lost my phone — exactly how, when, whether someone stole it, or I simply dropped it by accident, and all the infinite possibilities — is beyond my prowess.
I guess, ganoon talaga ang buhay. Kadalasan, nawawalan tayo sa paraang hindi natin nalalaman at napaghahandaan. Basta isang araw, o isang gabi, malalaman nalang natin na wala na sila. Minsan, cellphone. Minsan, pangarap.
