Aki: Lolo Jun is dead?
Me: Yup, he is dead. He died when I was only 2 years old. Tita Jana was only as small as baby Rya. Haaay. I have no daddy. Poor me.
Aki: It’s ok, Mom. You can borrow my daddy.
Me: Aki, I wish I don’t have to go to my office.
Aki (alarmed): Huh?! But, Mummy, your office friends miss you! They need you! I go to school and you go to office.
Me: Aki, I am so sad.
Aki: Why, Mummy?
Me: Because some people won’t give me what I want.
Aki: I go there. I open the door. Then, I smash the windows.
Me: Huh? No.
Aki: Joke lang. I see the people. I talk to them. I tell them, “hey, give my mummy what she wants!”
Me: Aki, limang subo pa.
Aki: Gusmo ko (gusto ko), one na lang. One is my favorite number.
Me: Aki, let’s pray.
Aki: Dear Jesus…….. Please Mxxxlxxx for my dad, a strong house for my ate, money for the victims. Make me a good and healthy boy..
Me: Ooops, you forgot something
Aki: Oh, and please make my mummy pretty!
