Pacquiao As Our Only Topic

22 Aug

During our Brazilian honeymoon, we tried real hard to communicate with our fellow tourists. We, of course, only speak English so only those who are willing to speak to us are the only ones we can speak freely. Most tourists were Hispanics or Portuguese-Speaking.

One time, we met a Mexican couple who was not able to speak English.
I asked them, “Habla Ingles?”
They answered No so we just looked at them and smiled courteously.
We told them, “We, Pilipinas,” then pointed at them, “You?”
Then we just smiled, “Ahhh Mexico!”
Then without anything to talk about, they just screamed, “Pacquiao!”
“Yes! Pacquiao,” we answered and then screamed, “Barrera!” and that’s it.
It was funny and sad at the same time.
