Fun With Homonyms

While having heavenly halo-halo in Razon’s in Pampanga, Dave was trying to convince the group to have one last photo session: “Sige na, maganda dito sa Pampanga. Habang pauwi tayo, pag may nakita akong magandang location, tigil tayo.”

It was 2:30 in the afternoon, the sun was blazing down the lahar-landia of Pampanga, and there were no clouds in sight. Heck, what were we in Razon’s eating halo-halo for?

Dave continued: “Magandang mag-shoot doon sa malaking dike sa may lahar area dito.”

“Malaking dyke?” I interrupted him. “I suddenly imagined this malaking konduktora ng bus na nakatayo sa gitna ng lahar. Nakapamewang.”

The others had to cover their mouths to stop saging and leche flan from spewing from their mouths. The side comments came fast and furious:

“What if it was Anne Heche in the middle of the lahar?! Ahahahahaha!”
“How about Melissa Etheridge?! Ahahahahahaha!”
“How about Aiza Seguerra for more local flavor?! Ahahahaha!”
“Nasa gitna siya ng lahar, may gitara, Pagdating ng panahon…. Ahahahahaha!”
I started singing: “Baka tibo ng puso ko’y maging tibo ng puso mo!

That did it. We were on the floor, rolling.

Needless to say, when we passed by the huge dike afterwards we didn’t bother to stop anymore.

I'm happy you didn't go into the little boy sticking his finger in the dike...
