Overheard

EAVESDROPPING is impolite, but there are times when it can't be avoided.


Consider, for example, four "tita"-looking women—fat, fecund, and forty—dressed in uniform; they probably work at the City Hall. They giggle like teenagers and speak as if they're on opposite ends of the football field. They sit near my table.

"Ano? Doon niyo ginawa?!" says one of them.

"Di ba doon natutulog sina John-john?" interjects another.

So it's true, after all—when there's a will, there's a way. And the whole world has to hear about it.
