Narinig mo habang nakapikit ka at aantuk-antok sa loob ng dyip:

"Saan nga tayo nanggaling?"

"Saan pa, e di nagsanla ng pawis!" Pagkatapos ay tawanan.

Nagmulat ka ng mata at tiningnan ang mga nag-uusap. Dalawang lalaki. Sa ayos, mukhang mga lasing. Usapang walang kaayusan. Mandin ay nagkakatuwaan lang.

Ngunit naaasar ka sa ingay na nililikha ng mga ito. Pagod ka mula sa pagtatrabaho. At gusto mo sanang makaidlip sa biyahe. Kaya wala sa loob mong isang malakas na "buwisit!" ang iyong napakawalan bago ka muling pumikit. Na pinagsisisihan mo namang nagawa mo pagkatapos.

Alam mong ikaw ang pinatutungkulan ng dalawang lalaking lasing nang muli mong narinig na nag-uusap. "Nagkalat ang mga sira ulo sa mundo, P're. Nagsasalita na wala namang kausap."

"Ha-ha-ha! Sira ulo! Sira ulo!"

Ipinikit mo pang lalo ang iyong mga mata. Pakiramdam mo, gusto kang ipaghele ng kanilang usapan.

Daramdaman mu cabang macapiac ca't mitutundung saque ning diip.

About the author. Papa Osmubal is Oscar Balajadia of Magalang (Well, don't get fooled by that name), now a Macau resident (Sorry, where?) and married to a Chinese local (How? How come? Why?). He has been a Catholic seminarian (OK, he once opened a book at an exam in Latin and Romance Languages—but who in frigging hell did not?), a Catholic missionary (Oh, the rosary is the answer to our country's economic problems and to your alcoholism and addiction to nicotine!), a bookstore staffer (Yes, sir, listen here, we know it is urgent, so your book is on its way from Guangzhou and will be here in 8 months!), a librarian (Oh, it's Friday the 13th and I am not putting 666 as Dewey call number on this bloody book!), and a teaching assistant (OK, pal, I know you prepared for the exams so I will check and mark them!). He is currently a teacher (yawn) and has an M.A. in English Studies (yawn even more, nod off, and then snore) from the University of Macau (sorry again, where?).
