A Valentine’s precept dictates that one does not date a mistress on February 14.
This date is reserved for the one and only wife. All the other days of the month of heart are fair game for some dalliance. The closer to Valentine’s Day the date with the mistress, the hotter one’s passion will be felt. Best it be done on February 13, the unofficial lustful twin sister of Valentine’s Day called “Mistress Day.”
For us Casanovas in our fair city of Paranaque, we received manna from City Hall in the form of a non-working holiday declared for February 13. The Bicolano Penguin was suddenly gifted with spare under-the-radar time that could be indulged for a hot tryst, literally and figuratively.
Thus in the morning hours of Thursday, I found myself lacing on the pillowy Hoka, wearing my favorite Under Armour, ingesting a couple of Hi5 energy gels, and putting on additional gear for protection and anonymity. Have a date with my jealous mistress and I was gunning for a “short time” in the streets of BF Homes and South Bay Gardens.
