BLACK ROBBERS

-A True Story

By far the best email i've read so far....


On a recent weekend in Atlantic City, a woman won a bucketful of quarters at a slot machine. She took a break from the slots for dinner with her husband in the hotel dining room. But first she wanted to stash the quarters in her room. "I'll be right back and we'll go to eat,"she told her husband and carried the coin-laden bucket to the elevator. As she was about to walk into the elevator she noticed two men already aboard. Both were black. One of them was tall...very tall...an intimidating figure. The woman froze.


Her first thought was: These two are going to rob me.
Her next thought was: Don't be a bigot, they look like perfectly nice gentlemen. But racial stereotypes are powerful, and fear immobilized her. She stood and stared at the two men. She felt anxious, flustered and ashamed. She hoped they didn't read her mind but Gosh, they had to know what she was thinking!!! Her hesitation about joining them in the elevator was all too obvious now.


Her face was flushed. She couldn't just stand there, so with a mighty effort of will she picked up one foot and stepped forward and followed with the other foot and was on the elevator. Avoiding eye contact, she turned around stiffly and faced the elevator doors as they closed. A second passed, and the another second, and then another. Her fear increased! The elevator didn't move. Panic consumed her. My God, she thought, I'm trapped and about to be robbed! Her heart plummeted. Perspiration poured from every pore. Then one of the men said, "Hit the floor."


Instinct told her to do what they told her. The bucket of quarters flew upwards as she threw out her arms and collapsed on the elevator floor. A shower of coins rained down on her. Take my money and spare me, she prayed. More seconds passed. She heard one of the men say politely, "Ma'am, if you'll just tell us what floor you're going to, we'll push the button." The one who said it had a little trouble getting the words out. He was trying mightily to hold in a belly laugh.


The woman lifted her head and looked up at the two men. They reached down to help her up. Confused, she struggled to her feet. "When I told my friend here to hit the floor," said the average sized one, "I meant that he should hit the elevator button for our floor. I didn't mean for you to hit the floor, ma'am." He spoke genially. He bit his lip. It was obvious he was having a hard time not laughing. The woman thought: My God, what a spectacle I've made of myself. She was humiliated to speak. She wanted to blurt out an apology, but words failed her. How do you apologize to two perfectly respectable gentlemen for behaving as though they were going to rob you? She didn't know what to say.


The three of them gathered up the strewn quarters and refilled her bucket. When the elevator arrived at her floor they then insisted on walking her to her room. She seemed a little unsteady on her feet, and they were afraid she might not make it down the corridor. At her door they bid her a good evening. As she slipped into her room she could hear them roaring with laughter as they walked back to the elevator. The woman brushed herself off. She pulled herself together and went downstairs for dinner with her husband. The next morning flowers were delivered to her room - a dozen roses. Attached to EACH rose was a crisp one hundred dollar bill. The card said:"Thanks for the best laugh we've had in years." It was signed ..... Eddie Murphy Michael Jordan

Condolence sa iyo Mmy-Lei

Lord, God
you are attentive to the voice of our pleading.
Let us find in your Son comfort in our sadness,
certainty in our doubt,
and courage to live through this hour.
Make our faith strong through Christ our Lord.


Lord,

Mommy Lei's father is gone now from this earthly dwelling,
and has left behind those who mourn his absence.
Grant that they may hold his memory dear,
never bitter for what they have lost
nor in regret for the past,
but always in hope of the eternal kingdom
where you will bring us together again.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.



Amen.


****

Para sa iyo at buong pamilya mo lei...Condolence.

Perhaps imagination is only intelligence having fun.

Bata palang si Sabel este ang inyong lingkod pala hehe, fascinated na ako sa anything related to Science. Mahilig akong magbasa ng mga libro tungkol dito. Gustong gusto ko ring manood ng mga science-fiction movies. Trip ko din na magbuting-ting ng kung anu-anong mga bagay. Ang dami ko ngang nasirang radyo at iba pang gamit sa bahay sa kagustuhang malaman kung paano umaandar ang mga ito.

Trying hard din ako na mag-imbento ng mga gadgets, kaya lang sa awa ng Diyos ay karamihan sa mga ito ay sa basurahan bumagsak. Pero mayroon akong isang item na hindi pa tinatapon. Naniniwala ako na... "This is it" ika nga ng iba, sabi ko sa sarili na with the right connections at exposure ay magiging tanyag ako at yayaman. At kung sakaling magtagumpay eh di na namin kailangan ni wisheart na magbilang ng buhangin dito sa gitnang silangan hehehe.

Kaya humihingi sana ako ng tulong sa inyo, kung sino man sa inyo ang interesado at gustong maki-sosyo sa aking business venture na ito, just let me know Ok. Siyanga pala bukod sa mura lang ito ay ever reliable din itong naimbeto ko na ito.

Eto pala ang picture sa ibaba....









***gotcha hehehehe

No Ordinary Love

Happy Valentines sa iyo aking Wisheart, para sa iyo itong song na ito. I love you very much *mwah, mwah, mwah at tssssup hehehe.


This could have been just another day
But instead we're standing here
No need for words it's all been said
In the way you hold me near
I was alone on this journey
You came along to comfort me
Everything I want in life is right here
'Cause

Chorus:
This is not your ordinary
No ordinary love
I was not prepared enough
To fall so deep in love
This is not your ordinary
No ordinary love
You were the first to touch my heart
And everything right again with your extraordinary love

I get so weak when you look at me
I get lost inside your eyes
Sometimes the magic is hard to believe
But you're here before my very eyes
You brought joy to my world
Set me so free
I want you to understand
You're every breath that I breathe

Chorus

From the very first time that we kissed
I knew that I just couldn't let you go at all
From this day on, remember this:
That you're the only one that I adore
Can we make this last forever
This can't be a dream
'Cause it feels so good to me

Isang kwento ng pag-ibig (Part1)

Araw ng biyernes, tanghali na nang magising si Caloy. Madaling-araw na kasi syang nakarating sa bahay nila mula sa tinutuluyang Bachelor's pad ng kumpanya nila. Kapag kasi day-off umuuwi siya sa bahay nila para naman makapagpahinga ng maayos at para din makakain ng masarap ng luto ng kanyang nanay. Nagsasawa na rin sya sa luto ni aling Simang sa canteen. Hindi naman kalayuan ang bahay nila sa pinapasukang planta bilang isang janitor este inhenyero pala, kaya lang maraming syang on-going projects na kailangang tutukan at on-call pa siya kaya tuwing day-off lang sya umuuwi sa kanila.

Nang tanghaling iyon, mag-isa syang kumain ng altang (almusal at tanghalian ata yun hehe) kasi may pinuntahan ang nanay nya. Matapos kumain at makapaghugas ng platong pinagkainan, kinuha nya ang kanyang walkman at lumabas sa may balkonahe para magpahangin. Nasa kasarapan na sya sa pakikinig sa kanta na “Saan na napunta ang panahon” ng kanyang paboritong APO Hikings Society, nang mapansin nya na medyo bumagal ang takbo ng kanyang walkman. Mahina na pala ang baterya. Dali-dali syang nagbihis para bumili ng bagong baterya.

Pinarada nya sa tapat ng suki nyang electrical shop ang dala nyang sasakyan. Pagkakita sa kanya ng babaeng may-ari, binati agad sya, “Uy Caloy kamusta na? lalo ka yatang pumopogi ah”. “Di naman po masyado, Tita Dulce” sabi nya na may halong ngiti. Mabait, masayahin at magaling pang mambola si Tita Dulce kaya doon sya laging bumibili. “Apat na double-A battery nga ho” sabi ni Caloy. Tinawag ni Tita Dulce yung isang tindera nya at pinakuha yung baterya sa lagayan. Habang nagkukuwentuhan sila ni Tita Dulce, napansin ni caloy ang isang babae na nakaupo malapit sa isang table sa loob ng tindahan. Mahaba ang buhok at maputi. Napatingin ang babae sa kanya kaya agad nyang nginitan. Ngunit yumuko lang ito at tuloy sa kanyang ginagawa. Sayang ang ganda pa naman, kaya lang masungit sabi tuloy nya sa sarili. Habang inaabot ni Caloy ang kanyang bayad, sinabi ni Tita dulce “sya nga pala Caloy, baka naman pwedeng ihatid mo itong pamangkin ko sa planta nyo, galing pa yan Capiz, sabay turo sa babaeng masungit este yung nakaupo sa may table pala. Natanggap kasi sya sa kumpanya ninyo at pinagrereport siya ngayon kaya lang hindi sya umabot sa service bus”. “Ganoon ho ba, pasensya na ho kasi ho me aasikasuhin pa ho ako sa bahay”. Sinabi lang ni Caloy yun , pero sa totoo lang kung nginitiian sya ng babae kanina siguradong pinaunlakan na nya ang request ni Tita Dulce. “Sige salamat na lang” sabi ni Tita Dulce. “Sige ho alis na ako” pagpapaalam ni Caloy.
Yan ang nakukuha ng masyadong masungit, nakangiting binubulong ni Caloy sa sarili habang sumasakay sa sasakyan.

Kinabukasan, sa opisina, nakatanggap si Caloy ng tawag mula sa Personnel office, may kailangan daw syang pirmahan na dokumento. Punta sya agad at pag pasok pa lang sa opisina ay binati sya ng kaibigang si Gigi; sekretarya ng personnel manager, “Caloy, pasok ka na sa kuwarto ni boss, lumabas lang sandali, babalik din agad yun.” Nasa loob na si Caloy ng kuwarto ng bumukas ang pinto ng opisina. Nakilala agad ni Caloy ang babae na pumasok sa loob. “Caloy, lika muna pakikila kita sa bago naming kasamahan sa personnel, si Sally” tawag ni gigi. “Caloy si Sally, Sally si Caloy” sabi ni Gigi. “Kilala ko na sya” tugon naman ni Caloy. Akmang iaabot ni Caloy ang kamay ng biglang sabi ni Sally, “di ko yan kilala! ”. Bah gumanti ang masungit, sabi ni Caloy sa sarili. Binaba na lang nya ang kamay at napakamot na lang ng ulo. Two stikes na si Caloy, namumuro na sya ika nga sa bingo.

to be continued....

The Return of the comeback




Tulad nga nang sinabi ni Kumpareng Douglas McArthur sa kanyang mga pinagkakautangan, este sa ating mga kababayan pala na...."I Shall Return." Ako rin po ay muling nagbabalik hindi upang makipagdigmaan kundi upang magpatuloy sa pagba-blag (tama kaya ito hehe).
Kaya, tuloy po kayo...feel at home..relax and watch a movie.

pasensya na kayo kung korni pa rin mga jokes ko ha , salamat pala sa inyong lahat na nag-iiwan ng comments/messages sa aking 10 este 2 tagboards pala. salamat din sa inyo mga dear friends na patuloy na nandyan sa tabi-tabi. masuwerte pala talaga kami ni wisheart ann sa pagkakaroon ng mga kaibigan na tulad nyo. naalala ko tuloy itong napakandang quote na ito:
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.
