Ponette just celebrated her 11th birthday last 20th September. Throwing back this blog entry from 2006.
My nieces and I were fooling around this morning. We played the GOING BULILIT use the word in a sentence and I initiated that we use their names.
I asked them, “Use Aki in a sentence.”
They all said, “USE IT!” like the kids in the TV show said it.
I sang the Itchy Worms song, “Aki ka na lang!” and Akemi immediately sings with me in the background and answered, “Aki ka na lang…”
I then asked them to, “Use Ponette in a sentence,”
They all said, “USE IT!”
I sang a tuneless song of “Ponette, ponette ponette.”
Ponette was not happy with this said, “Tito! Hindi ‘yan! Yung kay Beyonce,” and she sang “… Check on me tonight.”I immediately picked my brains up and realized she was right. She was singing a tune on the Pink Panther soundtrack CHECK ON IT:
Ooo boy you looking like you like what you see Won’t you come over and check up on it (A-PONETTE) I’ma let you work up on it (A-PONETTE) Ladies let him check up on it (A-PONETTE) Watch it while he check up on it (A-PONETTE) Dip it, pop it, twirk it, stop it Check on me tonight
