Summer is in full swing in my little tropical city. Between around 8 in the morning until dusk, I can hear kids playing on the street fronting our house. Yep, it’s summer all right. Ranging in age from five to pre-teens, these little humans stay oblivious to the unforgiving heat while playing traditional games (e.g. patintero, hide-and-seek, etc). That alone is enough to make me smile but sometimes, they shout out truly uproarious things.
Girl to her friends: When I grow up, I will be rich and have a twin and I’ll be mean to her just like in that telenovela.
Girl to boy: You’re not playing. You don’t have playmates. You’re only playing on your phone.
Boy: But I have games.
Girl: Yes, but THAT is not fun.
Another girl while playing “teacher:” Listen! Okay, 4 + 4?
I just about fell to the floor laughing to that last exchange. The “teacher” was so sure that her students were wrong. Kids can be hilarious, especially on days when you want to distract yourself from this crazy summer heat. Which is why I am loving PLDT Home DSL’s new star, 7-year old Diego.
