Perfect Wrong Timing
Posted December 2, 2006on:
Jerry got back from Manila last Thursday. Good thing super typhoon Reming did not hit Metro Manila directly or PAL’s domestic flights would have been cancelled.
For a person like me with a short supply of patience, I was glad I didn’t have to drive. I abhor the way taxicab and jeepney drivers weave their way in traffic! Now that Jerry’s back in Cebu, I get to rest from the wheel for a few days. Hehehe… However, as he was driving me and the kids home that night, there was a sudden knocking sound from within the car. It turned out to be engine trouble. It was perfect timing that Jerry was already around when the car chose to conk out. Or else… who knows how I would have panicked.
Yesterday, we had the car towed to the shop for repair. Friday and early today, the kids, Jerry and I took cabs to and from our destination. Save for the expense (Php 82 to Php 92 each way), it was rather convenient hopping on and off of it, just like the old times. Never mind the way they drive and weave in traffic! As for the boys, it was an entirely new experience.
