New Year Woes
Planning about the things we’ll do on New Year’s Eve (yes, we’re planning this early), tatay suggested that we should hose the roof of our Kubo (nipa hut) with water. This, according to him, is a safety precaution from stray fireworks to burn the kubo’s rooftop.
I asked him, “Tay, bakit mo sinasabi sa amin? Nasan ka ba sa Bagong Taon?”
He answered, “Baka lasing kasi ako nu’n.”
I wittingly answered, “Eh dapat buhusan ka rin ng tubig… Marami kang alcohol content, madaling magliyab.”
