fascinated with words!

It is still February, right? I figured you want another dose of happy moments from mom's journal...

During one of our home parties given in favor of my brother who has just arrived from his singing stint abroad, he had 2 of his closest friends (Bebe and Roque) to stay up late for a very interesting discussion - a topic about linguistics applied to different countries.

Manny, my brother said that in Japan, it was very hard to apply what you can easily learn in English.

"In English language," he said, "we can use terms to substitute the words we mean to say. Synonyms, in short."

"Yes, it's true!" the younger visitor of the two, nicknamed Bebe, said. "Just like for example when we say "like". It's like "love" and there's another term for that. There are many substitutes you know... it is...." he forgot and asked Roque about it.

Roque mentioned many synonymous words yet they haven't agreed because the younger said, "it's just at the tip of his tongue!"

Finally, the discussion was over for it was already very late in the evening. In fact, they're the only ones left even after the informal party was over.

Manny had gone back abroad for another singing engagement.

During the fiesta of the community, Roque assisted the basketball game as announcer. He noticed Bebe signalling him to come down from the announcer's booth. He gave a sign language that Bebe should wait. But Bebe kept waving for him to come down. Roque excused himself and went straight to him who was standing near the audience at the basketball court.

"Yes?" Roque demanded "What is it?"

"I remember now, the other term for "like" which we discussed last time!" he said enthusiastically.

"Whattt!!! That was such a long time already, okay, what is it?" Roque was a little bit interested than annoyed.

"FASCINATION!" he proudly answered.

Hahaha I thought it'd be much funnier if he had called Tito Manny, mom's brother, via long distance just to let him know what was at the tip of his tongue.... Hmmmm FASCINATION, is it?

my tito Manny, right here! :-)

Now, friends, just by reading this post, you've learned synonyms! Please don't let that stick right at the tip of your tongue! LOL

how silly can you get?

I'd like to share some of the silly things I did before. I thought I should write about this so they don't go deleted from my memory. :)

When I was seven years old
I had fever that day but I refused to stay at home. I went against my parents' decision to be absent from school. I don't know if you can call it "karma" or it may just not be my lucky day after all but I got myself soaked and wet from my hips all the way down. My skirt, underwear, shoes and socks were all wet! It's either someone (a silly classmate) pushed me swimming to a large fish pond at school or I must have slipped from where I was standing while I was fish watching with classmates. I had to go home to change. Thankfully, my fever went away. Obviously, I got a little spanking from mom after that.

When I was in college
When I was in my first year in college, I wore high-heeled shoes to go with my blouse and skirt uniform. There was a time when I didn't watch my steps. I slipped my foot while going downstairs. I was lucky, a classmate was able to hold my hand that prevented me from being the Jill who "came tumbling after". That didn't prevent my shoe from falling all the way down, though. Before I knew it, a guy picked my shoe and handed it back to me. I was an embarrassed Cinderella because I created a scene. I took a day's absent from school after that to give the students who witnessed my show some time to forget about me and the great slip. :)

When I was already working
While hurrying to get to the office and avoid getting late and getting a deduction from my payroll, I didn't notice myself going towards a wall that was made of clear (but hard)glass. I bumped my face and my forehead too hard that I literally saw "stars" in the process. I was in both pain and embarrassment. My forehead was swelling that I stayed inside the office the whole shift. I didn't take my break from sheer embarrassment. By the way, I came right on time!

My point is, I'm not perfect. In fact, I'm close to being perfectly silly! LOL

Good night, guys!

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
