So we're settling in quite nicely in our new apartment, Rama and I.
The first night that we slept here, all we had was a bed (new delivery) and a borrowed comforter. No pillows, just a rolled up sweater. And for a blanket, a sarong.
Me: Rama, pasensiya na, ito lang ang unan natin ngayon ha.
Rama, gracious as usual: Ok lang, hindi naman ako mahilig.
At some point during the night, she hogged the whole sweater. When she discovered this come morning, she became so concerned and quickly gave me the whole thing. "Ay, wala ka nang unan. Eto, eto..."
On the walk to school, she says this: "Nu'ng sinabi mo sa akin kagabi, na pasensiya na sa unan, nalungkot ako. Kasi parang hindi tayo mayaman."
Rama The Neat Freak was using this super-absorbent rug to wipe the banyo. Walls, tub, etc.
Me: Rama, wag na lang muna, kasi ginagamit ko pa yan na towel. (Hey, I had to improvise)
So she stops.
Later, she comes up to me. "Naaawa ako sa 'yo kasi ang towel mo basahan."
So I'm not putting these purchases off any longer. Today, we shop. ;-)
