I woke up this morning as my father announced he was watching one of my favorite movies: Million Dollar Baby
(maybe to lure me to get out of bed early).
There I found him in the living room, with the TV on, Hilary Swank in action while he's reading his newspaper. Great.
My sister's been too emotional these past few days. She'd cry everytime she receives a text message from our sister, Arlene in Dubai. She was sending her updates about her flight to Dubai which had been moved from the first week of November to October 29. She's scared that it might be moved sooner again the next time Ate Arlene texts her. She asked me if I would also cry when we send her off, I said "Let's see."
I went to see Mama in the hospital today, the first time she reported for work after her Bakasyon Grande
in Bicol and after Aunt Nancy and Uncle Jose went back to Wisconsin last Saturday. She was sniffing when I arrived and asked me loudly for the nth time: "Naninigarilyo ka ba?"
I wonder what could've have happened if I said yes.
Coming home from work, I noticed a black thing under Hansel, my cousin's left foot as he was sleeping in his folding bed last night. I tried to get a closer look, thinking it was a roach. I've realized it was a black star he had apparently drawn while he was manning the store that afternoon. It must have been so boring. I know.
