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!
