Of Valentines And Hugot Lines

February 14 is half a month ago, but I can still feel the spirit of the "love month" lingering around. Blame businesses, we were all caught up and sometimes, escape is hard.

I'm never one among the crowd, but you can't help not miss out the fun. Social media has played a major influence on everything getting to caught up on what is love has to do with our lives. I guess it really makes the world go round and round. 

A couple of days before the 14th, while watching the news that said broken heartedness is bad for the health, I asked my husband how life was like for him after his break up with his ex. He was very young then, and years before he met me. His answer made me think very deep, he said that it was like living without your arms and legs. Ugh! Amputated?! 

Which makes me realize how those hugot lines makes everyone can relate to, and for those like me, entertained and amazed by the emotions the statement brings.

Let's define "hugot" shall we? It is a Filipino word meaning "to pull, or to draw out". Hugot lines means a statement that came from a very deep emotion, most commonly a very painful romantic experience. (For my non-Filipino readers, like I have any, hahaha)

I'll see if I can come up with my own original hugot lines!
