|7. "Ma'am, the Apparition of our Lady
Tanjay will appear during the week of July 21 to 28, and I must
there in order to reserve my place in heaven!" (Maayo gani kay Moslem
and iyang Boss, unya former travel agent pa, so she knows how difficult
it is to book reservations during high season.....)
8. "Sir, my mother-in-law will be in town from July 21 to 28, and I don’t have a place to stay except in Tanjay." (Si Sir ning-tubag, "My mother-in-law is coming, too - can I go with you?")
9. "Ma’am, ug dili ko nimo tugtan, mag-hikog jud ko, unya ag akong suicide note will accuse you of sexual harassment!" (Kana ug tomboy ka Ma’am!)
10. "Sir, ug dili ko nimo tugtan, mag-hikog jud ko, unya ag akong suicide note will accuse you of sexual harassment!" (Kana ug bayut ka Sir!)
Officers’ Meeting on June 7
Held at the Gils’ residence, attended by Tia Ringgy, Braddack, Alice, Anesio, Jean, Paraluman, Fern, Gigi, Falang (who came late), and Marianne (who came latest). The main topic was Balik-Tanjay activities. The Tanjay Fiesta-USA Picnic to be held on Saturday, July 12, which will include the Election of New Officers, followed by a jam session. More details on page 9.
The meeting had the usual format: wala’y adjourn-adjourn kay ug duna’y mo-abut nga may pagka-on, manindog ang tanan, dayong mangadto sa kusina. Unya kay si Gigi ning-appear for the first time in many months, siya ang ga-preside sa usa ka meeting sa eskina nga puro ra mga babaye ang naminaw. Ag mga lalaki nanan-aw ug TV nga Tarzan, dayong nag-sing along to Mario Lanza's songs. The rest of the evening was spent in ga-hinam-hinam ug unsa'y among himo-on during the big trip. Typical conversations:
Marianne to hubby Richard: Honey, there will be at least four dances! Richard to Marianne: Honey, you’ll have to look for another partner! Badingding to Alice: Nagpa-reserva na ko sa akong masahista ug modista! Alice to Badingding: Gapa-reserva na ko sa aokng manicurista! Falang to herself: Magpa-reserva jud ko ug akong kaugalingong DI kay wa pa jud ko maka-tilaw ug bayle nga ako ang gi-dala! Braddock to Danny: Duna kono’y "night-club" sa Luca! Anesio: Na-a ba na sa atong schedule?
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how your officers hold meetings!
