Street Smart

I was explaining to Ronald that he is more of a Street Smart kinda guy.

“Straymart? Ano?” he asked.
“Street Smart! Anong straymart? Straymart Santiago?”
“Braveheart?” he still couldn’t hear correctly.
I laughed and corrected him, “Street Smart! Street. Smart. Street – Kalye.”
“Ano!? Pang-kalye lang ang alam ko?” he demanded an explanation.
“Street Smart ka. Parang ako more of a Book Smart na talino. Ikaw Street. Maparaan.”
“Akala ko pa naman Braveheart sabi mo, mas maganda sanang pakinggan.”

Ang Huminga Panget

During yesterday’s choir practice, Joy told the sopranos, “Oh! Bawal huminga d’yan sa part na ‘yan. Ang huminga panget.” We were practicing the intro to the song Eres Tu.

The boys’ imagination immediately flew!
“Ano kaya kung biglang tinubuan ng nunal na may buhok sa pisngi.”
“Alam na natin kung sino ang huminga.”
“Unti-unting kukulubot ang mukha  kasi huminga.”

Semi-Fat Burger

“Hati-hati na lang tayo. Masyadong magastos saka madami kung tig-iisa pa tayong hamburger,” Ronald told Atong and I before we ordered in Fat Burger.
“O sige,” I agreed, “Ganito na lang. Order na lang kayo ng tig-isa. Di na ako oorder. Bigyan n’yo na lang ako ng tig-kalahati.”
“Magulang ka talaga,” they both told me, “Eh di isang buo rin ‘yun.”
