What would be the consequence of going home with your 58-year old mother doing the driving? And that means you are helplessly sitting on the passenger coach just beside the driver.
Let me tell you my story.
On our way home, I turned the television on to watch TV patrol. Ted Failon was making a roundup of that night’s news.
Ted failon: Pinoy’s satisfactory rating, Bumaba!
And here came my mother’s rather quick comment.
Mother : Dapat Lang. Yang sa pork barrel , di nya mapakulong. Wala ring syang magawa!
Ted Failon: SSS executives, isosoli ang milyon-milyong bonus.
And again was my mother’s irritated and somehow in-the-mood-to-look-for-a-fight tone–
Mother: Dapat lang. Ang kakapal ng mga mukha nyo. Ang daming di makaclaim ng mga pension at loan tapos kayo bobonus ng milyon!
Ted Failon: Kilalanin! Sino ang highest paying taxpayer ng taon.
And as expected, here again was my mother’s loud voice.
Mother: Naku, sino kaya un? A, baka ako. Ihihihi.
That’s my mother and she really made my gloomy day so bright. Even outside was gloomy but she painted the sky with rainbow with her funny rantings.
