joys amidst pains

fate’s sense of humor strikes in the most unexpected places.

yesterday, it allowed my family to have a snap and an undertime pressure “reunion” in the middle of my brother’s in-laws’ mourning for the demise of their patriarch. 
olen, our eldest sister, was able to drop by manila memorial park at sucat, paranaque city to pay her last respects to joseph’s father-in-law before leaving for bicol. her presence was unexpected since she had very limited time to spare after her official business trip. thus, she moved in a fast forward pace as her companions/colleagues waited for her.

no signs of sleepiness

within this period, we were still able to exchange punchlines. the fun-loving people in us struck again. looking around the agoncillio room, we were attuned to the mood of the majority. that moment, death was clearly a celebration of life. 

for me, i had to thank the smiles, the laughter and the different dins at the funeral vigil. they camouflaged whatever melancholy the passing away of a loved one had caused, and they muffled whatever lines one had articulated to remember his wife, tita pearl and his favorite daughter, she, who had both gone ahead of atty. orlando samson, fondly called tito orly, erps and os.

My goal with this blog is to offend everyone in the world at least once with my words… so no one has a reason to have a heightened sense of themselves. We are all ignorant, we are all found wanting, we are all bad people sometimes.
