1 Post A Day Challenge – ENTRY #9

Dear Sun,

Welcome back! Thank you for paying us a visit today. Boy, did we miss you! Let me fill you in on what has been happening since you were gone. The rain has been pouring like crazy and you know what happens when the rain goes crazy on us right? Yup! The floods come like an uninvited relative. At first, it’s okay but then when it stays longer by the time it leaves it has already wrecked some furniture and your house will definitely need some serious cleaning.

After the flood has gone, it left us with a bad souvenir. Aside from potholes which I drove through at least 5 times today, the worst thing that was left behind by the flood is the garbage. It is practically everywhere. Even during the flood, it was floating along with the rubber boats used by the rescuers in saving people from their flooded homes.

Come to think of it, we are to blame for this. You’re thinking it too, aren’t you Sun? I know. It’s like a broken record. Everybody actually knows that garbage blocks the drainage systems and causes the unbelievably high floods that raises hell in the country every time there is a typhoon or just an effed up weather. If only we could turn back to the time when we didn’t segregate our trash, or that one time while we were riding the jeep and threw the candy wrapper out the window, or that time when we left a mess because we were too lazy to look for the trash bins or when we we’re simply being stupid so we littered just because everybody else was doing it. And you know that if everybody’s doing it, it’s probably right, right?

Maybe it was lack of the vitamins from your rays that’s why we forget. Oh, but even your rays are dangerous now because we have single-handedly destroyed the atmosphere with our indifference and stupidity. How many more typhoons or bad weather do we need to experience for us to realize this? Sun, when will we ever learn?

I know that the PSAs from celebrities, politicians, and groups might knock some sense into people but I also know that the best way to affect change is to start it with yourselves and in your own homes. With that, I promise to continue to segregate, reuse, and recycle. Hopefully, everybody will do that too.

Anyway, that’s about everything. If you must go (cause I know it’s still the rainy season), please stay at least until our laundry dries and the people has turned their lives back to normal. Our neighbors are still fixing their roofs and relief operations are still on going. I guess, my performance of “Tomorrow” last night in the shower worked so you actually came out today. Haha! It’s really good to have you back.

WARMEST regards (wink),

Ces a.k.a. Vent-O-Machine

PS.

Remembering some tweets and Facebook statuses about you being scorching hot last summer. I know we weren’t too friendly with each other but i’ve missed you so maybe we can return to hating each other next summer. In behalf of everybody, we’ll hate on you in 7 months. See ya! 🙂
