Lotto: The Answer

02 Apr

“Huwag n’yo na ako ihatid ho?” I told my parents.
“Bakit ba?!” Nanay demanded, “Eh sa gusto kita ihahatid. Ibababa ka lang naman dun.”
“Yun nga ang ayokong eksena eh. Yung papalayo kayo from airport. Malungkot yun.”
Nanay’s eyes began to swell then uttered, “Gusto ko na talagang manalo sa lotto.”
“Yan! Sabihin mo yan!” Tatay followed.
“Oo nga, Nay,” I told my mother, “Dapat manalo na kayo sa lotto para umuwi na kaming lahat.”
“Yun nga lang…” Tatay told us, “Paano mananalo? Eh hindi naman tumataya.”
