I sat down and ordered from the extensive menu
The gracious waitress repeated my order (as they are trained to do),
Then jauntily scampered off towards the kitchen.
I unfolded a newspaper and started scanning the day's news
Corruption, murder, robbery, libel, overpricing, hoarding ...
Hmmm -nothing new
Just the usual stuff ...
Then there it was ,
On page A22
I shudder just at the thought of it ...
Yes folks ...
This scorned Pinay culminated her fits of fury with an act that can be said to be on the "cutting" edge
For her - the time had come "to cut - and cut cleanly"
And for the poor man ...
No dose of Viagra will ever be of any help
The deed is done
It will forever be very hard, to be very hard
Let the lesson be learned ...
"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned "
There was much to think about ...
How does this lesson apply in my own life?
Where did I keep the scissors?
Does she know?
Should I sleep on my right side?
My thoughts were interrupted by the voice of the waitress
"Sir - your order is here. Enjoy your meal ..."
My thoughts still stuck on the news article
Suddenly - I wasn't hungry
Miss -pabalot na lang"
