Carpet

“Daming carpet,” Marish commented on the hairy guys while we were in Wild Wadi.
“Kanina nga sa pila,” I told her, “Sa likod ko may dumikit. Akala ko kung sino ang naka-sweater. Pag-lingon ko. Hala! Carpet!”

Pat, Patrick and 1,500

 

“Nawalan ng AED 1,500.00 si Patrick!” Ronald told me, “Magkasama kami kanina, magbabayad na s’ya ng visa tapos biglang paghugot n’ya, nawala na pala ang one-five n’ya.”
“Ok lang ‘yun. Malaki naman sweldo n’ya,” I answered non-chalantly.
“Ganun?” he asked.

When I was about to tell Susan, “Nawalan daw ng 1,500 si Pat.”
Ronald saw my chat with Sue and screamed, “Hindi si Pat! Si Patrick,” Pat for Ronald is Patrick, my college classmate, while Patrick, for him, is our former flatmate.
“Ano naman pinagkaiba ng Pat at Patrick?” I asked him, “Pareho silang Pat at Patrick sa akin,” I told him then I realized, “Ay nawalan si Patrick (former flatmate) ng 1,500? Kawawa naman…”

When Pat (college classmate) heard about my comment that for me him losing 1,500 is no big deal, he said, “Gago ka. Anong ok lang ako mawalan ng 1,500? 1,500 pa rin ‘yun.”
