The voyeur

The reason why I love commuting stems from the fact that I love people watching and that when you’re commuting, something will most likely happen. (Most of the time it’s something unpleasant, but hey I love complaining too, so that’s all right with me.)

Like today, for example. I was on my way back home from Ortigas when I took a jeep. Sliding into my seat without mishap, I passed on my fare and settled down for the ride. Sitting across from me was a guy who didn’t seem to know what to do with his eyeballs — they were bouncing from one girl to another. I resisted the urge to lean over and poke him in the eyes.

But I digress.

Next comes a woman who was just bursting out of her top (we’ll call her Bountiful Betsy). Now Bountiful Betsy, a creature that God smiled upon when the day came that he handed out bosoms, didn’t seem to know how to keep her hand to her chest when bending to get into a jeep.

So in comes BB and if it wasn’t for the noise pollution you would’ve heard the collective intake of breath from the opposite sex. With the many people in the jeep and the narrow pathway, BB had to mince her way to her seat which was conveniently further in, right beside the guy with roiling eyeballs. Roiling eyeballs which immediately fastened on the assets of the poor chit.

And as the jeep hurtled down the highway like a racehorse with a burr in its saddle, I watched the guy attempt to engage the woman’s breasts woman in conversation.

Unfortunately my stop came so I had to leave before I found out if she was going to slap him in outrage or give her his number.

Like I said, I love commuting in Manila.
