Atong has a habit of retelling stories again. He might’ve forgotten he told it or he is just fond of retelling the same story.
He did this to me and Ron one time during the choir’s Teambuilding Activity in Safa Park.
“Di pa tayo nag-re-register sa Standard Chartered Marathon,” he told me.
“Takbo ka Ron?” I asked Ron.
“Baka hindi,” Ron answered.
“Dati ba naman,” Atong started (re)telling, “Si Lilly, yung asawa ni Jerome, sumama lang para picture-an si Jerome. Tumakbo! Hangang 10k! Natapos nya!” He told this with so much glee.
Number 1: I know this story.
Number 2: Ron was with them, when they ran.
Number 3: Atong knows that Ron and I knew the story well.
“Sige…” I started, “Magpapanggap ako na di ko pa alam… WOW! TALAGA? ANG GALING NAMAN NI LILLY!”
Atong had a straight face, “Ang yabang mo! Kinukwento ko lang.”
“Nakwento mo na ‘yan!” I screamed at him.
“Si Ron baka hindi alam,” Atong told us.
Ron laughed, “Hahaha! Alam ko na rin ‘yan.”
Hayaan na natin baka natutuwa sya magkwento.
