Laughing again

I was just taking a break from a whole day of timetabling my travels from next week until next month. So I clicked on the stressed in the city blog just to see what humorous things are on offer this time. The title of the latest article, Barless, made me really curious and you can read about it here.

This reminded me then of a similar and yet a bit different thing that happened in school many years ago. It was during our English class in high school. The teacher would call any one in the class to make a sentence based on our topic. So one of our funny girl classmates stood up and started to say, "The treeses ..." Hmmm... and she had a way of talking and body language that made us all laugh, flipping her hair as if she was some movie star without the star! We were all laughing silently as we were afraid our teacher will call us. Our teacher was already frowning at our classmate who was still oblivious that nobody understood what she was trying to say regarding the "treeses". At least she didn't say "tresses". And this was also our classmate who thought that carabao (buffalo) and cow are male and female, respectively, of the same species.

i will really look forward to reading more of your posts again!!!! can you speak aklanon?

milai said...

yes, i can speak aklanon fluently. i grew up in aklan and just came her in manila for my college education.

i can understand ilonggo and little kinaray-a and bisaya or cebuano but i can't speak them very well.

i don't know aklanon really. i've been to aklan only once in the early 80s! i was working with shrimp and milkfish that time. i travelled by bus from iloilo.

i miss iloilo... we used to shop there when aklan still does not have gaisano kalibo. i've been to antique once but i was only 8 years old then, when i tagged along with my nanny when she went home.

i like iloilo and i lived there for about 4 years. we still do our shopping there but i think to a lesser degree now coz of more business establishments in antique.
