I am so happy it’s the weekend already!
I’m happy not because I can rest but I’m happy because I can do the other things that I need to do apart from work!
It’s nakaka-windang to plan a surprise birthday party while planning an out of the country trip while taking care of 10,000 more things. Not remembering my online banking username is the most stressful of them all because I cannot pay our bills, but that’s another story.
Kailangan ko ng help (thank you very much to all of you who have sent me suggestions for Anika’s party!).
The other night I told Alvin nga, “Babe, I’m so stressed and busy. Ang dami kong iniisip. I will tell you everything that I have to do and think about right now tapos paki tingnan mo na nga lang saan ka pwede makatulong sa akin.”
After doing a litany of everything, eto sagot ng lolo mo, “Sige. Ang tulong ko is hindi na kita guguluhin pa.”. He sat on his couch and nanahimik.
Saya di ba?
Speaking of Alvin, naku, I have a lot of hanash sa kanya. But before that, lemme show you an outfit from one of my favorite brand of dresses.
This dress is perfect for pregnant ladies too. Sa totoong buhay, mukha talaga akong three months pregnant ngayon pero look at that. The dress is very forgiving to the figure.
Let’s go back to Sombrero.
Last Tuesday, Anika’s teacher wrote in the school diary that Anika needs to bring a 1 x 1 ID picture. Last day of submission was kanina, Friday. I remember it, Thursday late afternoon na. I called Alvin at home.
ME: Babe, kailangan ni Anika ng 1 x 1 ID picture for school!
ALVIN: Meron. Meron siya dito.
Hay salamat, I said to myself. I don’t need to rush home and bring her to a photo studio.
I got home around 8pm.
ME: Babe, san na 1×1 ID photo?
ALVIN: Nasa blogging table mo.
I went and hinigh-blood talaga ako!
Two years old pa lang si Anika sa 1 x 1 ID picture na ito!
Anak ng teteng yan.
ME: Baaaaabe!!!! Ano ka ba! Ang bata pa ni Anika dito! Anong klase yan!
ALVIN: Ang tanong mo, kung may 1 x 1 ID picture ba si Anika dito sa bahay. Meron di ba? Hindi mo naman sinabi na present 1 x 1 picture pala.
I have no words. Like, wala talaga. I didn’t know whether to laugh or to strangle him eh!
I was chatting with my friend Jen a while ago. Miss na daw niya ang Sombrero Sitcom and yeah, it’s been a while so eto, mag-Sombrero Sitcom tayo, ALVIN EDITION.
ME: Babe, my knuckles hurt. Ang sasakit talaga.
ALVIN: Uric Acid yan.
ME: Really? Anong cause ng Uric Acid?
ALVIN: Sus. Ano pa, eh di shopping!
Before I left for my short US trip, I expressed my anxiety of traveling alone kay Alvin.
ALVIN: Bakit ka ba natatakot bumiyahe eh ginusto mo yan?!
ME: Natatakot kasi ako ma-Taken.
ALVIN: Babe, impossible. Hindi ka mate-Taken…
Tiningnan ko ng masama.
ALVIN: Kasi mga pangit lang ang na-te-Taken.
One day, Alvin called me up.
ALVIN: Babe pwede ka ba bumili ng Swiss Knife? Bayaran ko na lang sayo.
ME: Anong pinagsasabi mo diyan?! Bakit mo ako kailangan bayaran?! Ibibili kita ng Swiss Knife. Hindi mo ako kailangan bayaran dun.
ALVIN: Ok lang. Babayaran ko sayo. Para sa akin naman yung Swiss Knife.
ME: Eh ano ngayon kung sayo? Don’t say that. Even if it’s yours, I will pay. No need to pay me back. Don’t even think about that. Like if you tell me you will buy me a new bag, I will not pay you. Come on, say it. Say that you will buy me a new bag.
ME: Come on. Say it now.
ME: Hello? Babe? Hello?
We were watching PBA.
ALVIN: Ang gwaping din ni Pingris.
ME: Half Filipino, half ano kasi siya kaya siya pogi.
ALVIN: Ano? Half ano? Half Pilipino, half English kaya Pingrish?!
It was taking forever since I first asked Alvin to have my car fixed. I was getting frustrated already.
ALVIN: Bakit ba ako eh kotse mo yan? Ikaw magpagawa.
ME: Alvin, ikaw ang boy kaya pagawa mo kotse ko!
ALVIN: I’m just a boy… Standing in front of a girl… Asking her…
… what the fuck are you talking about?!
Hahahahahahaha! Sira ulo.
Life is never boring with Alvin Sombrero around.
