A few weeks back, a blog reader commented that she was back reading my blog posts. She said that parang ang saya saya daw sa bahay namin kasi parang may live sitcom.
You know, that’s true. Alvin grew up watching Dolphy on the screen plus all other Tagalog comedies that he actually was able to turn our every day into a family sitcom. Matatawa ka talaga if you live with us. You should see how Alvin’s extended family are when they’re together. Yun talaga parang you’re watching live comedy sitcom. They’re all so funny from Alvin’s cousins to her aunts. You will never get bored when you’re with them.
That’s why I like being with them. Tawa ka lang ng tawa. That’s what I love doing, to laugh. I am drawn to people who makes me think and laugh. Kaya siguro kay Alvin Sombrero ako napunta.
Alvin and I make fun of each other all the time. While I’m trying to taking a nap and mangungulit siya, he would pinch my nose until I wake up kasi hindi ako makahinga. Bwiset nga. Isipin niyo magigising ka bigla kasi hindi ka makahinga. Pagtingin mo, tawa ng tawa lang sa tabi mo. Gumati ako one time. One night, he climbed in bed way after me. He thought tulog na tulog na ako. He laid down beside me and started watching TV. I waited for a bit until I felt yung pupungas pungas na siya. Yung sleepy na sleepy na pero nanonood pa ng TV. And then I jerked my body so hard. Ito yung tipong parang napapanood niyo sa horror movie na napoposses. Alvin was so surprised, muntikan niya matapon yung TV remote. Hahahaha! Sumakit tagiliran ko sa ginawa ko but it was worth it.
But gumanti na naman din ang lolo niyo. I was sleeping and then I felt something move beside me. When I opened my eyes, Alvin was standing beside my bed looking at me, horror movie style. Hindot na yan talaga! Muntikan ko siya ma-upper cut sa gulat! Hahahaha!
And of course there are the classic dialogues na masisiraan ka ng bait.
The other night, Janis and family were having dinner at our house. We had bopis and it was the first time in many years na nakakain kami ulit nun.
JANIS: Ngayon na lang ako ulit kumain nito ah.
ME: Oo nga. Hindi ako kumakain basta basta ng bopis sa labas kasi hindi ako sure kung malinis.
JANIS: Ano ka! Naalala ko itong si Nana. Nakita ko nung mga bata pa kami. Kumakain ng bopis kasama boyfriend niya sa kanto. Hahahaha!
ME: Onga. Kaya nagkaron ako ng amoebiasis. Hahaha!
JANIS: Talaga. Ako nga hindi din kumakain ng dinuguan sa labas. Dun lang ako sa Kanin Club kumain nung Crispy Dinuguan nila.
ALVIN: Okay lang yun. Resputable naman yung restaurant.
ME: Baka respectable, Babe.
ALVIN: Ganun na din yun.
Hahahahaha! Pinaghalo yung respectable and reputable.
It helps if you laugh a lot a home. Kahit madaming problema, keribelles. So don’t forget to laugh okay. It’s the best medicine for everything =)
