As pineapple helps labour, i told my wife:
“Hon tintamad na ako magwork. Kumain ka nga ng isang kilong pinya.”
We were talking about artists we personally met and Ate Weng said, “Si Dingdong Dantes nameet ko na sa personal.”
“Ate, kamukha ko raw yun? Totoo?” I asked.
“Sino may sabi?” She asked sarcastically.
“Pagnakatalikod daw ako. Pareho raw kami.”
“Talikod ka na lang palagi.”
Since the pregnancy kicked in there is no designated time nor place for her to sleep. Mitch would sleep at 6pm then wakes up at 10pm. She would sometimes sleep on the couch while the rest of us is watching something on TV.
During those times, I would tell her, after we finish the movie or tv series, “Hon, gising na…. tulog na tayo.”
