Hugot sa isinuksok


PAMBALISONG 29” ‘to— 100 igkas-tarak na araw-araw sasanayin, iisa lang…sa isang iglap kapag may buhay na kikitlin. It’s more turned to less, quantity skimmed down to quality… a quantum of bonding time translated to eternity in a moment’s blur.

Ika-25 araw ngayon sa buwan, 29 na ang nasulat na inilagak dito, mangkokolum.blogspot.com… hugot na lang sa isinuksok, Inday… maisasalpak ‘to na tila tagdan sa butas ng pahinang pupunuan araw-araw…

Kung may tiyaga sa pagbibilang, mauungkat sa bawat nasulat na karaniwang 444, 555, 666 o 777 ang kabuuang bilang ng mga nakalatag na kataga… bakit gano’n? Sinasadya ba ‘to?

Ah, mga diwata at ninunong namayapa umano ang nakapatnubay, nasa tabi-tabi lang kapag sumulpot na signos ang 444.

Mga anghel ang nakatalaga sa paglitaw ng 555, kahit amoy-sardinas.

Pulos demonyo at mga masidhing mithi—intense thoughts that become alive, take ephemeral form and await to take flesh in reality-- na nakapailanlang sa paligid ang ibinabadya ng 666… sex, sex, sex can be ominous of bestial passions.

Pahiwatig sa magaganap na himala o mainam na pihit ng pangyayari sa buhay ang itinatakda ng 777.

Superstitious crap these might be, or just the best of wishes for our readers—18 lang nga ang nakalista na sumusubaybay sa aking web log… paisa-isa lang ang nag-iiwan ng pasasalamat at kuro sa binasa… may mga naliligaw na nag-aaral yata ng English, nakatutok daw sila sa mga susunod pang ilalagak na sinulat.

Iisa pa lang ang nagsabi—taga-Dumaguete, ‘tapos sa Silliman-- na sa isang basahan, sapol na niya ang ibig kong sabihin… mas marami ang nagrereklamo, may pagkakataon ngang tumawag ang isa sa opisina, balking and barking at how I’ve taken liberties with the English language and its idioms… hindi nakapiyak nang ako na ang kausap—naubusan ng hininga sa todong tawa.

May isa namang sumulat, sobra libog at laswa daw ‘tong kolum… bed influence raw sa mga babasang bata… hindi ko pinatulan. I don’t take minors to bed… they can’t carry either a decent or engage in an indecent conversation… lousy deportment.

Sobra? Unti-unti ang pag-alis d’yan… tanggal muna ang –bra, maiiwan ang so-… hindi na tinatapyas ‘yon, sinasaksakan nga ng silicone para maging malusog… kailangan pa ngang himasin, lamasin ng 45 minuto, as recent findings recommend, kahit araw-araw para maiwasan ang sulpot ng tumor.

Kapag higit na abala sa sulat kaysa suso, gayahin ang halimbawa ni Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart… imposible raw matugtog ng sinuman ang isang bahagi ng kanyang obra… kailangan ng sagad-habang daliri na wala sa kahit na sinong tao… tinugtog ng Mozart ang obra, dumating sa imposibleng bahagi… habang umiilandang sa kung saan-saang teklado ang mga daliri, idinuldol ang ilong sa teklado—natugtog ang imposible…

Every single cell of my body's happy

I got this one from Carmelite Sisters from whose school three of my kids were graduated from. They have this snatch of a song that packs a fusion metal and liebeslaud beat and whose lyrics go like this:

"Every single cell of my body is happy. Every single cell of my body is well. I thank you, Lord. I feel so good. Every single cell of my body is well."

Biology-sharp nerds would readily agree with me in this digression... Over their lifetimes, cells are assaulted by a host of biological insults and injuries. The cells go through such ordeals as infection, trauma, extremes of temperature, exposure to toxins in the environment, and damage from metabolic processes-- this last item is often self-inflicted and includes a merry motley medley of smoking a deck a day of Philip Morris menthols, drinking currant-flavored vodka or suds, overindulgence in red meat or the choicest fat-marbled cuts of poultry and such carcass.

When the damage gets to a certain point, cells self-destruct. T…

Viagra au naturel

IT LOOKED eerie—a blaze of fireflies pulsing like stars in the nippy air, throbbing with mating passions. That show of lights somehow eased the shadows of a Holy Thursday night on a dry river bed a few kilometers trudge up Mount Makiling.

It’s likely that no river has lain in sleep for months on that moss-grown, boulder-strewn bed—except my 20-year old kid Kukudyu and I. We were out to spend the night, do on-site learning sessions by the next day. Usual father-and-son bonding. As the late Benjamin Franklin once begged: "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

Past noon from the foot of the mountain’s northern section, it took us four hours ploughing non-stop through prickly bushes and forest undergrowth to get to that site. We got there in one bruised piece. By then, dusk was falling; the sylvan air hummed with a trill of crickets, cicadas, critters nameless in choral orison. That incessant “sh-r-r-e-eemmm---“ layered with “k-kr-r-eeengg--” …
