Literally and Figuratively speaking?

Ang sabi ng mga ka tropa ko ng mga tambay, tricycle driver, seaman, bankero, abogado, doctor at pati lamok:

Habang lumalalim ang gabi, lalong sumasarap ang inuman at pulutan.

Well, it really is true, figuratively and literally.

Literally in the sense that the longer you stay and drink, the level of alcohol goes higher. (malabo ba?)

Figuratively,  when one or two of your senses become numb dahil laseeng o lango ka na, even if the liquor and the pulutan are the worst kinds (kahit rubbing alcohol o bulok na daing), you ‘still think’ that the alak is the best and the pulutan tastes great,  at lalong sumasarap. (Pag minsan nga, pati poste, nagiging babaeng seksi. di ba kulas? ha ha ha)

And the longer the drinking session becomes, the more it turns out to be fun, loud and noisy, and  more neighbors are being pissed off especially the wives and their pet dogs. Consider yourself lucky if they just ignore you, perhaps your neigboooors accepted you as crazy. But,  on some other times, kapag pumasok na sa kanilang nerves ang iyong kalokohan,  do not be surprised if you have an uninvited guest, Mr. Pulis Patola,  knocking at your door or calling you in front of your gate.

Such is the case for drunk neighboooors and their guests. Such is also the case for “the Glooooria and her gang.’

The only difference is that when Mr. Pulis Patola finds out that  “the Glooooria and her gang”  are the ones having fun, he would usually join them and later, pag laseeng na rin sya, hina-harrass na ang neigboooorhood na nag re reklamo.

Literally and figuratively speaking!

Ang pag-ibig nga naman

Ang sabi ni Kulas:

Ang paghihirap at pagtitiis ay meron hangganan
Ang poot at galit ay umaabot din sa sukdulan
Katulad nang mga bagay sa mundong ibabaw
Sa kalaunan ay kumukupas at tuluyang nagwawakas
Pero iisa lang ang walang katapusan,
Ito ay ang pag-big o pagmamahal na tunay.

At bakit naman bigla ka na lang naging makata Kulas?

Wala lang, sa next month kasi enrollment na naman.

Kaya pare ko,  baka may ekstrang datung ka dyan,   sa halip na matalo ka sa merkado o kalakalan,  pagmamahal mo sa kaibigan na  nangangailangan  ay iparamdam,  dalawang libong doyares lamang,  ako ay pautangin mo naman.

AYOS, ang pagmamahal nga naman.
