Kid Logic

When I was a kid, I have reasoning which my parents find it hard to argue with. They just laugh at me as if I was a clown; while in my young mind I declared such statements with all sobriety.

Here goes my kid logic.

1. My mom was in a rush moving heavy things and I was blocking the way.
Mom: Bess, Tabi ka, Huwag ka humarang sa daanan ko.
Bess (with all due respect): Bakit po? Daanan ko din naman ito ah.

2. I broke one of our fragile displays in the living room. It was a glass figurine of a girl holding a bouquet of flowers.
Dad: (jokingly): Hindi ka kasi nag-iingat. From now on, ikaw na ang iddisplay namin sa display rack kapalit ng nabasag na girl figurine.
Bess (bursting into tears): Sorry na po. Hindi ko po sinasadya. Please, huwag nyo ko idisplay baka mangawit ako. Tsaka, paano po pag nagutom ako? Sorry na..Huhuhu

3. My mom showed me a sparkling 25 centavo coin.
Mom: Ito ay ‘bente singko’
Bess: ‘Bentsing-MO’ yan mommy? Bakit ikaw lang ang may bentsing? Gusto ko din ng ‘bentsing-KO’.

There goes some of my kid logic. I know you've got more. :)

Travel is a Struggle No More

Everyday is a struggle.

Do you know the feeling when you have to endure the long queue of people waiting for the shuttle/FX to come by and load multiple rushing passengers? Have you experienced being squeezed by unnerving people inside a vehicle? Add to that the heavy traffic along EDSA and the long duration of travel time.

If you haven’t experienced these, good for you.

However, almost 90% of those who go to work everyday experience these struggles.

Sad to say, this is unavoidable. So, instead of ruining your mornings and entering the office with that distorted look on your face because of these, take time to accomplish things during the morning rush.

Here are some tips:

1. Bring out the bookworm in you.

Read a good book or listen to audio books. Little would you notice that you have already finished reading a great book. Audio books are great for you can rest your eyes while getting the feel of a dramatic read.

2. Groove to the music.

Turn on those IPods or MP4 players and groove to the music. Or you could choose to be sentimental and listen to heartwarming music.

3. Longing for conversation?

Tune in to RX 93.1- Chico and Delamar’s The Morning Rush or Magic 89.9’s Good Times with Mo, Mojo and Grace Lee.

4. Sleep – Just make sure you wake up on time.

Recommended site - Click here for downloads.

I get to download new articles of magazines, books or even listen to audio recordings of the books of the Bible. Plus the Kingdom Melodies (MP3 format) enlightens the spirit and seems to purify my mind. Please feel free to visit it.

So, the next time you travel to work, you’ll barely notice the struggle anymore. You’ll just realize you’re already in your destination.

Happy trip everyday!
