Actus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea

It is a matter of fact that in the past few weeks, I have been visiting friends who were confined in hospitals, work even on my rest days, go to repacking and donations centers to lend my hands in relief operations, sneak out every Saturday nights to meet friends, or sleep all day because I was up the whole night.  

Guilty as charged and I have no appeal. I maybe physically present at home, but my mind wanders elsewhere.

But what caught me off guard was a remark from my mother. For someone who is not "out" at home, and is not dating (even sleeping) with anyone at the moment, what she told me after barging through her door to demand a hug put me in a mild state of shock. 

"Wala ka na oras sa akin." She said in jest while stroking my hair.

Gangnam style
Cornered? Let's Dance

"Ang oras mo nasa boyfriends mo na."

Actus Non Facit Reum Nisi Mens Sit Rea - The act does not make [a person] guilty unless the mind should be guilty.

@Seth: From time to time, mom asks me about the guys I bring home. He asked about the ex (she knew as a friend) one time and I said he went to Singapore to work. She also asked about the Weatherman and since we are still in contact, it's easy for me to sneak him into my room because he has my mom's graces.

Too bad, we're not a couple.

@Ruddie That's a touche for me. Haha.

@Sef On Twitter, I've been associated with oversized cats. That's why.

@Bone My friends tell me that as well. Actually, she told me things that hint to what she knows. I just can't bring myself to tell the truth because...

@Jjampong I promise to look back on this entry once I meet the Fourth. :)

haha okay na yun i guess. ako wala akong out moment sa nanay ko pero alam na niya so ayoko na ring pag-usapan pa. parang mas awkward lang. haha
