I don't know if this is because of the fiesta which is this weekend, or because the Pacquiao fight was due at noon and the men wanted to go to early mass so they wouldn't miss it.
everyone figures there will be another fight after this one, to make money and Pacman will run for president of the Philippines in the future. And like Erap, he will win honestly, without having to buy votes. -
I am avoiding facebook after a blowout against my step son It's about money. Long story, some of which I wrote about here and some of which I wrote about on my bitchblog. Sigh. -------------------------
After I left mass early, I came home and put the airconditioner on full blast and slept until 10, when I went to visit Lolo's grave with the cook. we left flowers and candles.
No one was working there, probably they took off the morning for the fight, since contract workers usually work straight through until the job is done and don't stop work on Sunday.
When I got home, Joy and Ruby had returned from their church, which had also had a short service so folks could watch the fight. So we went to Luz' Restaurant for lunch....
it was half empty, and most of the staff were in the corner watching the fight, but a few of the lady waitresses were there to help, and we bought food buffet style instead of waiting for the waitress to take our order.
EVERYONE was hoping and praying but it didn't work.
Whatever. It didn't work, because the Pacman lost to Merryweather, leading to the local social media posting pictures of Barney
and making jokes about hugging.
