Lola picked up my sister’s Barbie Doll. Stared at it and asked, “Ganito ba ang kulay ng buhok ng mga Amerikana?” while pointing at the blonde child’s play.
“Oho,” speaking louder than the usual conversation volume (she badly needs a hearing aid).
Our reply caught our lola quite surprised seemed to have saddened her. While she stared at the doll, we couldn’t help asked, “La, bakit po?”
“Akala ko kasi ganito ang buhok nila,” while pointing to her silver locks.
