I’m the resident bookworm of the family and I push my nieces to read good books every once in awhile.
“Bakit di kayo nahilig magbasa?” I asked my sisters Ate Mimi, Ate Richie and Tem.
“More on movies kasi kami,” they all answered.
“Weh!?” I asked them, “Sige nga. Kung talagang movie buff kayo… Magbigay nga kayo ng pangalan ng isang direktor. Isa lang!” I dared them.
“Umm… Steven Spielberg!” They proudly answered.
“Nay! Napaka-given naman nun! Iba pa!” I dared them. I was hoping they would answer Steven Sodebergh, Martin Scorcese, Chris Nolan or even just Woody Allen.
They were silent for quite a while when Tem screamed, “Binibining Joyce Bernal!”
