i don't know if it was just mere coincidence that my mom's phone decided to break down days before mom's day. the poor thing has been hanging on to dear life for as long as i can remember but knowing how tight her grip is when it comes to money matters, that nokia 3310 that i gave her six years ago will definitely live to see its last breath.
and because the universe conspired that the gadget's demise fall on this occasion, i just told her that i'll be buying her a new one since i'm going home to the province anyway. from miles away, i can only imagine her gleeful nod at the thought of getting a new phone for free. yes, that would be a thousand more "pogi" points for his favorite son.
pero dahil etchoserang froglette din ang tatay ko, i received this message from him shortly after that small chat with my mom.
"nagha-hang na din ang cell phone ko."
