At about 9 am earlier I received a message from him saying “Patambay sa inyo may ibibigay ako sayo/ Can I stay at your place? I’ve something to give you”, and I almost didnt let him because I was writing my Daily Diary and Weekly Report for my OJT Documentation, but I figured he can help me write these so I replied “Sige ba maya mga after lunch/ okay come by after lunch”. But the funny thing was before he came over I already finished it and then I took a bath and at 1:30 PM he arrived.
He was greeted by my baby brother, reaching out his hand and shamelessly saying “Kuya W, may pasalubong ka?” in which he smiled and handed my baby brother 2 chupa chups, which was sweet of him. Then I came down stairs and he immediately dropped his backpack to open it and then he got a little packet from it. At first I thought it was a box of Nerds, but oh no it was a box of the horrid “Bean Boozled” Jelly Beans by Jelly Belly and I immediately felt nervous. This dickhead was even grinning at me like Satan himself and I was like “What are we gonna do with that? I’m not eating that willingly, mate” and he said “I BOUGHT THIS FOR 150 PESOS AND I’LL BE EATING IT BY MYSELF?” I smirked and replied “Yeah, if you’re that stupid enough to eat disgustingly flavoured candy then suit yourself, weirdo” and I could tell that he’s not giving up that easily so he retorted with “Did jelly beans scare the living crap out of you? funny I thought you were tougher than that, Jops” that asshole already knew I couldnt refuse that, he knew that if he attacked my pride I’d give in, and I did.
My grandmother was sitting on her rocking chair and he said “Grandma, you be the witness okay? You see here, there’s no monkey business going on right?” and my grandmother just laughed, she’s sweet I know. He lined up each bean by pairs and here are the flavors:
You can imagine the horror that I felt. I knew that these jelly beans existed but I havent tried it, not until earlier. And I’ve seen enough youtubers try it to know that it’s not something to mess with, I’ve seen some throw up because of it. But I also felt excited because I’m curious, what does Skunk Spray taste like? and is it really as bad as the Youtubers make it seem? Jesus Christ and it costs 150 Pesos! PEOPLE PAY THAT MUCH FOR THIS HORRID THING? Anyway, so we started and him knowing my favourite color is green we started with it. So it’s either Lawn Clippings or Lime, I kid you not my heart was beating so fast and I hoped to get the better tasting one…….he counted to three and then we chewed at the same time, and I was so frickin relieved to taste LIME. We each had plastic bags, well I mean “Barf bags” but one isnt allowed to spit it out. Grow a pair of balls and swallow the damn thing mate, and then he said “I’m starting to think that this isnt a good idea” and I just smirked at him. Second, is either Rotten Egg or Buttered Popcorn I got lucky again, third attempt was either baby wipes or coconut I wasnt let down and on the fourth try which was either booger or juicy pear…is when I was about to thank my lucky stars..I was even chewing it like it was something delectable when my taste buds suddenly had a realization that IT WAS BOOGER MY GAG REFLEX WAS ALMOST TRIGGERED BUT I CHEWED IT DIDNT BOTHERED ME (But it clearly did) BECAUSE FUCK IT MATE, I AM STRONGER THAN THAT. He started laughing like a fucking lunatic, I wanted to punch him square in the jaw for laughing at my agony but I am a changed woman, then the fifth round was Canned Dog food or Chocolate pudding I GOT DOG FOOD AND MAN IT WASNT PLEASANT, HE STARTED LAUGHING LIKE A LITTLE BITCH AGAIN WHILE I WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN, And in my mind there’s only regrets as to why I agreed to do this. We had it for another 5 rounds wherein I got toothpaste and licorice and he got skunk spray, barf and stinky socks.
It was hell for our taste buds but it was fun too, we werent the only one who thought so Grandma was also laughing her butt off in her rocking chair. I even tricked my other brother into eating a Baby Wipes flavored one. And then after that we went to a nearby restaurant, (near 7/11) and we ordered “chami” which is a type of fried noodle. And laughed our asses off as we discussed that rather traumatizing activity we just did, then we came into a conclusion that we were both idiots for not video taping our reactions, just for the heck of it….we are a couple of weirdos arent we? but we had fun doing that stupid shit anyway, so it was kinda worth it. We are also thinking about making a cover together of Out of my league by Stephen Speaks and Toxic by Alex & Sierra, with him playing the guitar/vocals and I on the piano/vocals.
He also made me listen to Ang Bandang Shirley, which was an awesome band. All in all, today was a good day.
