it just occured to me, how come kiss marks are so controversial amongst us filipinos or probably to other nations?
i remember one time, a classmate from college walked in to our early morning class with band aids in her neck. i dropped my jaw saying in my head she should have just not done that. people in college are not preschool not to know that it was kissmarks that she was covering with band aids. but it didn't end their when one of our mean and playing naive friend asked her about the band aids. she answered that she fell from her stairs and got bruises on her neck.
i knew, i have one hell of an imagination. but i am really having a hard time imagining, how you'll get bruises on your neck by falling at the stairs.
later on, she confessed that her boyfriend just went up to baguio for a visit and probably miss each other a lot.
second incident was at my previous work (naks). he was a good looking lad, probably a bit older than me. he has this northen spanish features in him with long, dark brown, curly hair. he was the fanatsy favorite on our floor, i must admit. then one day, he sat beside me like he usually does. it was hours before i have noticed that for the first time ever he was wearing turtle neck that day. yes, the office is quite cold bvecause of the air conditioning. but that clothe is always on the bottom of the list because you still have to consider the weather by the time you go out of work.
at first he was really hesitant in spilling it. but eventually he confessed, when another officemate saw kiss marks on his neck. he said that he went out last night and saw some of his guy friends. he was really wasted that night and just woke up seeing those marks on his neck. the thing was they were all boys that night and he's straight.
well it seemed like some of his guy friends weren't. hehehe
anyhow, going back to the question i posed earlier. how come some people tends to hide it?
well, it should be given right that if you have a partner, you'll definitely kiss. and most of the time, it could be so intense and it would not always be on the lips.
in addtion, i don't quite understand as well why people are ashamed of having one. they tend to hide it and conceal it with anything that they could think of and come up with the weirdest possible alibis for it?
tell me the most cliche reason again; conservatism of filipinos. yes, it will always be the reason that we could tell for almost millions of questions especially when it comes to being moral. but i am proud to say that we should not be ashamed of it, we should not conceal it and i must admit it i am even missing the feeling of it.
hoping it mark something in you too.
