Something About A Man In Uniform?
Over dinner tonight, Rama shared a story on current events.
Rama: Alam mo, may pulis na namatay.
A police officer died in the line of duty last week here in Greater Toronto Area. Grabbed headlines, big funeral, etc. But I little did I know Rama would be up to speed on those things!
Me: Paano mo nalaman?
Me: Nabasa mo?
Rama: No. Mamu.
Her lola on her dad's side, Mamu, recently paid a visit.
Rama: Bakit siya namatay?
Me: Hero siya. Habang hinuhuli niya yung bad people, sinubukan nilang makatakas. Nakasabit yung police sa car. So nakaladkad siya. Patay.
Through all this, Rama was listening in rapt attention. She seemed very concerned. The mood was not light at all.
Rama: Is it real?
I looked around the house for a copy of the paper. I remember seeing the paper with the cover story of the burial lying around. On today's page 3, there was his picture, copied above. So I showed it to Rama.
Me: Eto siya o.
Rama: Uy! Gwapo!
