emma; only girl in the world

Just My Luck

Thanks to the Investiture of the 19th UP President that's going on right now, all my classes were cancelled. Okay, so Eng 10, technically just didn't show up. Kas 1 was really canclled as it fell in the after 2pm schedule. My real genius is Soc Sci 1.

After waiting for thirty minutes for our professor to show up (while crossing our fingers that she wouldn't), I was determined to find my Soc Sci prof. Good enough, as I walked up to the second floor, out he comes of the office. I am in luck. I really had no idea what I was going to tell him, short of begging him to cancel our class for no apparent reason, but I took my chances.

me: Sir, tuloy pa ba class natin?
sir: Oo naman, diba 11:30 yung schedule natin?
I nod and accept my sorry fate, but not without trying one more time
me: But sir, my Eng 10 prof cancelled her class.
Sir looking almost relieved
sir: talaga? Gusto niyo cancel na rin natin yung atin?
me: kayo po, sir
I try to sound as polite and nice as ever
sir: Sige, cancel na natin

I could hardly believe my ears, but before I knew it, I was jumping up and down right in front of my professor. Talk about being subtle. At that point, I really didn't care. I was going to go home.
