Korean Mama Mary
Waiting at the condo lobby, with a new big-ass tree.
Rama: Bakit may star sa ibabaw?
And so i launch into the nativity story. The best that I could muster. Jesus is born, 3 wise men just follow the star and find him etcetera.
Rama: Alam ko. Tapos sabi ng angel, Jesus is born.
I suddenly remember that the school is actually mounting a nativity play. And Rama is The Angel. She knows what she has to wear: 'White dress, mahaba. Long sleeves. Chaka wings."
Me: Tama, yun ang sabi ng Angel. Di ba ikaw yung angel?
Me: Sino si Joseph?
Rama: Si Russel.
Me: Sino si Mary? Ano naman ang sabi niya?
Rama: Walang sasabihin si Mary. Kasi si Su joong yun. Korean siya.
