Every time I leave for work every morning I see to it that my nieces give me a good-bye kiss for the day. One morning two years ago (Ponette and Aki are about 2 years old), I gave them the morning routine. I kissed Paula, “Bye.” Samantha, “Bye”. Ponette “Ba-bye, Tito” and Aki “Bye-bye”.
I was about to go straight to the door when Ponette shouted “Tito!” I looked back and saw Ponette pointing to her yaya, “Tito, Kiss din Yaya!” Her yaya, immediately turned red and was embarrassed by Ponette’s action. I ran for the door and said “HINDI NA. AALIS NA AKO!”
