I'm drenched right now and a little irritated, not feeling like a good sport. Today where I live there's a water splashing tradition going on. If you step outside your house people attack you. They line up along side the roads to throw water in to the tricycles and jeepneys. The jeepneys put the plastic down over the windows, but it doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter if you're a senior citizen carrying the fish for sale for the day, there's no age or nationality discrimination. I feel bad for not being a good sport, but it is really annoying to have people screaming and coming at you with all this water and they are having a riot of a time at your expense. To me, today all these people look like fools. But...maybe I need to just get into it or something.
Well, Theresa...what does it signify, does it signify something? Yeah, it signifies that people are idiots. Ok, not really. I'm sourgraping.
My jeepney ride reminded me of a ride at an amusement park today, and then I remembered that I have a long post coming up about how the Philippines is like the ride Pirates Of The Caribbean at Disneyland. Not kidding, there are many similarities. I think it's going to be a long post though and I'm lazy.
