delayed reaction

Sunday, August 29, 2004

As I stepped out of my room yesterday morning, mom asked me if I wanted to go to my aunt's house that afternoon. Since I just woke up, and my brain wasn't working yet (hehehe...) I took me quite a while to understand what she was asking. I just stood there looking perplexed, then finally I asked why. Mom said it was my uncle's 40th day and there was a small gathering at my aunt's house. Still yawning, I said, "Ah ganon ba?", but mom can tell that what she was saying hasn't registered yet.

1... 2... 3... BOOM!

jen: ay! (now wide awake) 40 days na si tatay?

mom: oo. ang tagal mo nag-react, ne.

Hehehe... can you tell that I'm not a morning person?
