Whenever we have a party at home, we know that the very next day will be clean up day.
So when Rollie told us that his birthday will be held at home, I immediately signed up for an overtime in the office: Might as well sit all day in the office than scrub the floor the whole day.
The very first thing I saw the next morning after the party was the shiny floor, then the clean sink and then the stacked up washed plates.
Rosie, Ronald’s sister, cleaned up everything! “Sanay kasi akong naglilinis ng bahay. Ayoko ng walang ginagawa.”
Too late! I already have pending job in the office I left the previous Thursday evening.
I told Ronald, “Naiinis na ako dyan sa kapatid mo ha? Linis ng linis!”
“Maigi nga yun para di na ako maglilins,” he answered.
“Yun na nga lang ang lamang ko sa inyo para di ako mainis na OT ako eh.”
