Nostril Hair Elimination

While plucking the overgrown hair from my nostrils, one of our househelp walked into my room. Quite embarrassed I immediately stopped whatever I was doing. Did she see me?

Going downstairs, the maids were hanging on one side of the house. One teasingly screamed, “Koya!… Ano ginagawa mo kanena?! Nagbubunot ka ng bohok sa elong?”

Sleep Talkin’ 10: Smart People

After hearing me sleep talk for the first time, our old flatmate, Roda, told us, “Nagsasalita pala talaga si Orlee.”
“Narinig mo?” I asked, “Pasensya na ha? Si Ronald ‘yun,” I denied.
“Gising si Ronald nung narinig ka namin.”
“Ahh ganun ba?” I blushed (blushed?).
“Pero sabi nila, kapag MATALINO raw talaga nagsasalita matulog,” followed Roda.
Ronald immediately interrupted, “Ako, naririnig mo bang magsalita?”
“Hindi eh.”

Screaming Nanay

“Tem, kamusta ang nanay?” I asked my sister after my very homesick nanay arrived from the US.
“Ayun! Sigaw ng sigaw! Bigla nya n alang nare-realize na nasa Pilipinas na s’ya. Biglang sumisigaw: Wow! Nasa Pilipinas na ako!!!!”
“Talaga?”
“Oo, kanina nga nasa palengke kami, bigla ba naman sumigaw: ‘Wow! Nasa Pilipinas na talaga ako!’ Habang kinukurot ang sarili n’ya.”
