Last weekend, our group was tasked to perform at the Dubai Festival City every hour from 6PM tip 10PM to spread the holiday cheer.
Rollie was late for the first show while I was assigned to sing the solo part of the first lines for “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”.
After the first set, Rollie arrived. He was bashed big time by everyone. He forgot the call time.
After that, Joy came up to me and said, “Orlee! Nawala ka nanaman sa Rudolph.” I was aware I might have lost a couple of notes and Joy confirmed it.
“Oo nga eh. Bawi ako sa next set,” I answered, “OH LATE SI ROLLIE OH.” I pointed back at Rollie.
“Magpakain ka Rollie! Late ka!” Everyone screamed.
That’s one way of taking the heat off of you.
