The price of a virgin

While waiting for a cab in a waiting shed beside Davao Doctors Hospital one rainy night, I overheard this conversation between a group of students in white--perhaps nursing students--and manong, a vendor who sells balot and cola.

Girl1: Kuya, tagpila ang Virgin? (How much for a bottle of Virgin)
Kuya: Diyes pisos (P10)...
Girl2: Mahala pud ana kuya uy (That's too expensive)!
Kuya: Mao man gyud na iyang presyo (We're really selling it for P10 a bottle)
Girl2: Diba tag-seven pesos lang man na sya kuya (Doesn't it cost only P7)?
Kuya: Diyes lagi (No. It's really P10).
Girl1: Kurakot gud ka kuya (You know what, you're corrupt)...
Girl2: True! Mura ka og si GMA (You're like GMA)...
Girl1: Kulang na lang sa imo kuya kay alum (The only thing that lacks in your is a mole)!

Other characters--their friends--just laughed. And I could not help but also laugh from where I was standing, thankful that no taxi was available that time or else I would have missed that scene. And they did not even look like they were tibak.


PS:

Ano daw ang Virgin tanong nina biatch and lyka. Well, bukod sa akin, ito ang Virgin.

Outside our apartment, the chorus for Manny Pacquiao was drowning our little angry whispers as the staccato of his punches tore the beautiful face of Marco Antonio Barrera. Inside, all of us were unanimous in praying that the fight be called over. Both of them were bloodied. Pacquiao's face appeared ok, despite the lacerations and that broken nose. It did not change a bit. Marco Antonio Barrera's face needed a major reconstruction.

Now, Pacquiao is preparing to battle Mexico's Golden Boy--another hottie Oscar dela Joya. And being THE consistent Pacquiao-opponent fan that I am, I will pray, as in pray, for hottie dela Joya.

This early, many already predicted the doom of Pacquiao: that he will be knocked down by dela Joya.

Thank you very much but I am not sure. I cannot say. But I am sure of one thing. I know of one person who will be brought to the hospital--to be tailed by TV cameras and radio reporters-- IN this fight.


Dionisia.

Who else? You see, the stage mother who never ceases to steal the limelight--whenever and whatever she can grab from her superstar son.

Hmmmmm...last time she asked for a new car. What do you think she will ask from her son after the fight with dela Joya?
