"Woof! Woof!". Or should I say, "Cough! Cough!" Finally, the cough and cold virus sweeping over everybody else have caught me. Yipee! Shit!
I had already been feeling that itch in my throat over the weekend and last Monday's trip to Manila aggravated the irritation and now, its full blown! Why do I blame that trip? Largely because it was hot as hell that day and crossing EDSA on foot isn't the most refreshing thing to do on a sunny day --- with the smoke belching buses and all.
The National Statistics Office main branch for application of personal documents is at East Avenue, QC and since I haven't been there before, I decided to park my car at SM Megamall and just took a cab figuring it would easier. And I was so glad I did! Traffic was really bad and the cab driver had to take an alternate route. NSO has this program called Serbilis and was supposed to speed up your application of your birth certificates, marriage certificates, etc. I think the whole application process was done without much hassle, except for those people who can't understand that their numbers aren't called yet but would rather chose to stand and block the path of those whose numbers have already been called! Geeesh! I was almost tempted to ask one bozo, "May sunog ba?!!". 'pag sumagot, "Wala naman." Then I'd snapped back, "Eh bakit ka nagmamadali?!". Whew!
After the NSO, POEA at the corner of EDSA and Ortigas was next on my agenda. Nothing exciting there. Just went to get the list of requirements.
Cooled off at Megamall and bought Gerry's Wasted comic --- finally! Not for the faint of heart, I tell you. But damn a damn good story!
'Twas really a tiring day and I immediately flopped on my bed when I got home. And the morning after that, I was already barking like a dog! Aww! Aww! Cough! Cough!
