Sorry Honey!

tamad“Honey! Sira na yata ang electric fan.”
Ang wika ng kanyang misis kay mang Teban.
“Pakisuyo nga, pwede bang iyong tignan?”
“Sorry darling! I am not an electrician!”

Tila nagulat sa sagot na nadinig,
Napabuntong-hininga kawawang misis,
Tiniis na lamang ang matinding init,
At siya’y nagpatuloy  sa paglilinis.

At nang dumating pang-display na inorder…
“O pakipako na lang nito sa pader.”
At ang sagot ni mang Teban kay kumander,
“Sorry darling! But I am not a carpenter!”

At pagkatapos,  si mang Teba’y nagbihis,
Pasipol-sipol pa nang ito’y umalis,
Iniwan ang asawang inis na inis,
Hating-gabi na nang siya ay bumalik.

Nang ang pintua’y binuksan ni mang Teban,
Siya’y nagulat sa eksenang dinatnan –
Umaandar na ang sirang electric fan…
Si misis – display sa pader, minamasdan.

“Wow! Fixed na pala ang mga problema mo.”
“Yes!” Sagot kay mang Teban ng misis nito.
“Pag-alis mo… may dumaang estranghero,
Pumayag naman siyang tulungan ako.”

“Ngunit ang loko’y may hininging kapalit
Magbake ako ng cake o – kami’y magtalik.”
“Aba, oportunista pala ang lintik.”
Wika ni mang Tebang, halatang naiinis.

“Kaya’t pinagbigyan ko na’t sobrang kulit.”
“Ha? You mean ipinag-bake mo siya ng cake?
Sumagot ang misis, parang kinikilig –
“Sorry honey! I’m not a baker. I shouldn’t bake.”
