A Cut Above the Rest

I was not expecting any guest for my birthday except for the 5 persons I invited out to lunch. And an additional mouth meant no meals for me for the next 3 days. But I couldn't stand it thinking about a newcomer eating alone on her first day in work. So I looked inside my wallet, drew out my rosary and prayed for a miracle. It was the best birthday celebration ever. I know from the looks on their satisfied faces, the blissful smiles with meat stuck in between their teeth and by the way their bellies sagged and their feet hugged the way back to the office. The walk was highlighted by a friendly banter that ended up with my friends restraining me from hitting the newcomer!

That was the scene 3years ago and that's my imagination talking in the last sentence.

Gem couldn't stop laughing upon hearing this confession and she recounted that the lunch was not that good either. I knew I should have punched her that time!haha But it's very different now. As time went by I grew fond of her. She blossomed right before my eyes even before I could convince my self to call her my Girl GF. With the emphasis on the word girl for people mistake her for a she-man coz she would seriously maim those that talk to her breast, standing up for all the women and she-men of the world. This is my girl GF, a cut above the rest.

My very good friends Gem and DD commissioned me to do this artwork as my stand on women empowerment. I respect women but I honestly think that it was just my Girl GF's excuse for vanity.;) Check out the details, enjoy everyone.
