A special day for all the fathers…
I woke up early that day. I went down and saw my dad preparing food for lunch. My two brothers lying down the sala watching a movie (cinema one syempre). Lumapit ako sa dad ko and greeted him ‘Happy Father’s Day’… and he responded with a nod. I expected that reaction, coz my father is really like that. Quiet, Reserved, A man of few words.
Then unexpectedly, I started this whole day with a Bang!! Literally!!.. nabagsak ko kasi yung termos.. ayun… basag! 😀
We don’t know what we’ll do for this special day.. I asked my mom that I’ll buy a cake, but she said na wag na lang. Then that mid morning, my dad is already out drinking with his friends… yeah, that early… and we’re used to it.
But this is his day… and even if we didn’t give him a gift, I think he’s happy that day. After so many months, his kumpare finally talked to him, and they’re now in good terms again.
I’m still hoping that my father will change. Stop the smoking and the drinking.. before it’s too late.
