So yesterday, she was pumping my brother for information about a cousin's wedding. My brother, not wanting to get in the middle of things, played it safe and just said "i don't know" to all of the questions.
- Who's making the entourage gowns ? I don't know.
- Why are they getting for hosting services ? I don't know.
You get the point :)
Eventually, aunt got exasperated and said to my brother "how come you don't know ? He's your cousin!" and my brother replied "e you don't know it either and he's your nephew!".
So Aunt changed the topic and asked about me. How is Popcorn ? How does she look ? Is she fat ? (tingnan nga to, kelangan pa talaga tanungin kung mataba ako. bwiset.)
This was when my nephew - my precious, oh-so-lovable nephew - jumped into the conversation and said "Aunt S, why do you like asking questions when you already know the answer ? You just saw my A-i when Aku was not here yet."
My nephew was referring to our visit to California last December. Everybody saw us, even aunt. Onga naman, why would she ask my brother how I looked (chismosa talaga, grrr!) when she just saw me herself a few months ago ?
Aunt was supalpal and didn't ask anything else. She said "smart talaga si Lyle".
