When I was growing up, I never exactly had a lot of relatives over. Maybe because we live in the metro and all the rest were staying in Dumaguete. Either way, I keep on seeing those aunts in TV shows that are cool and just weird. I think I’m gonna be one of those cool aunts at home with some weird funk.
Friend: Is that your drawing?
Me: Yes. I tried and I failed.
Friend: Cute! Even the colors! I’ll show it to my daughter later. I told her you’re an artist. Now she sees you like a saint now.
Me: No way. Though can we go out and have a nice dinner out. Oh I want to dine open air see the stars and all that. I want wine. Vino! And I want a good serving of ice cream. Oh I am still accepting Valentines gift. I always fancied a set of silver rings. It’s not that expensive. Thank you, Koji-san!
Colleague: How was the holidays? So what did you do with your kids? Me: Kids? Oh I don’t have kids. I’m happy being single. Colleague: Don’t say that. You’re going to regret it. Me: Maybe. But I thought about it and Immaculate Concepcion really doesn’t fit me. Colleague: Ha? You should start planning for a family. Me: Oh yeah. I have a plan. I’m going to the forest with a ball and catch me one of those Pokemon.
This is what you get for working in a very family oriented office.
Koji: Where are you? I was at the parking and you never replied.
Me: Dude, I was stuck 30 minutes delayed from flight, 30 minutes waiting for a parking space for the plane and a frigging hour for our luggage.
Koji: LOL. Good thing I didn’t go up.
Me: Why? You finally delivering your funeral invitation?
Koji: No. Christmas present.
Me: Ooooh! Let me guess? Cheap?
Me: That’s what I get for being 3 actual friends rolled into 1 for you don’t I?
Koji: Yes. Rule of economics. You’re the bundle plan.
So here’s the idea. You order pizza and it comes with this sticker that says Hot.
Think of other ways where you can use the sticker…. Go!
I can only think of two ways:
Stick it to a plug. When plugs are “overworked” they tend to heat up. This is a good indication that it’s about time to replace your plug or appliance.
Stick it to the kettle. Especially if you have the basic one. No need to pat it. If you’re living with other people and tend to sterilize your drinking water, this becomes a handy visual sign that it’s ready for your hot drink or up for transferring into the pitcher for the fridge. Yes, we do it at home.
