Miggy and Aki’s Unicycle

There was an instance where Miggy and his Lola (my nanay) had a fight.
Miggy screamed, “Lola! Galit ako sayo! Umalis ka dito sa bahay ko.”
“Aalis ako?” Lola asked.
“Yes! Lumayas ka wala kang dadalhin kundi yung bike ni Aki!”
“Bakit yun lang?” Nanay asked.
“Yun lang kasi di ko kaya gamitin.

The Sonya’s Garden Incident

image

We were at Sonya’s Garden last week when Tem remembered an anecdote about Miggy and the Sonya’s Garden Salad Thong.

Last year…

When Tem, Ate Pam and the kids went to the same resto, Miguel was playing with the thong and walked around the place. He was making snapping sounds while opening and closing the thong.

While Tem was not looking at her son, Miggy used the thong (see picture) and snapped another woman’s bilbil (love handles) while she was eating. The lady screamed and was very embarassed. Miggy smiled and paused.

Tem caught her son and apologized badly to the lady.

“Kuya! Nakakahiya talaga! Pero mahirap din awatin tumawa. Nakakaawa yung babae. Imagine-in mo, inipit ni Miguel yung taba nya habang busy sya kumakain!”

Miggy and Tito: Departure

“Miggy,” I asked my nephew, “Sad ka ba? Aalis na si Tito?”
“Yes,” at a young age of 6, he knew the concept of going away and letting go.
After he answered I left and went to the kitchen.
While I was in the kitchen, he whispered something to his mom, “Joke lang yun, ma,” as he was very happy that his evil tito is now going away again.

After Tem told me this, “Kuya, sabi ni Miggy joke lang daw yun!”
Miggy grabbed his mom’s mouth.
“Miggy!? Anong sabi mo?” I asked.
“Sorry! Sorry, Tito!”

Tem then asked again, “Miggy, sad ka aalis si Tito?”
“Yes,” the little kid answered.
Tem looked at his son’s face. “Uy! Tatawa yan.”
Miggy was really trying hard to hold his smile but would eventually laugh.
“Ulit-ulit!” Tem asked, “Miggy, sad ka aalis na si TIto?”
“Yes,” he answered straight faced but then laughed again.

“Miggy, aalis na rin si Ponette,” Miggy’s cousin will fly back to Japan after 2 weeks.
“Ay! BAKIT!?” He asked almost crying.
I overheard and asked, “Bakit ganyan tanong mo pag si Ponette. Bakit pa ako masaya ka?”
He was laughing hard when he realized this.

Said Before

image

I told my Lola, “Alis na po ako.” I was about to go back to Dubai.
“Apo…” she started, “Baka pagbalik mo sa Marso eh wala na ako.”
As to create a conversation and to show off to my lola that I was listening to every conversation we had, I told her, “La! Nasabi nyo na rin po yan noon!”
Only then did I realize the error that I did. Not. Daring. You. Lola!
No ‘Challenge Accepted’.
