Wala kayo sa lolo ko!
Written: March 28, 2013
During our lunchtime, me and my Indian officemates were discussing about vices (alcohol and smoking).
office mate 1: I have a relative in India. He smokes 6 packs a day. He died of stroke. He was only 57.
office mate 2: 6 packs a day!? I’m not surprised.
office mate 3: Well, there are a lot of factors. Sometimes it’s genetics. On my mother side, almost all of my relatives reach 80, 90 plus. My grandfather smoked 4 packs a day and he was 90 plus years old when he died.
apollo: In my country, I know someone who didn’t smoke nor drink. He died very young. Around 20’s.
office mates: How did he die?
apollo: *in all seriousness* Suicide. *sabay subo ng rice with tinola*
I just had to say it. Di ko mapigilan eh. Or maybe that’s the tinola (my ulam) talking.
