Why did Daddy scratch his head while on the phone?

We had finished dinner and I was on the floor playing with my new toys, “Star Wars” action figures…

“Beda, Pilar is on the phone.”  Tita Sis told my father.  He smiled, rose from his seat, and took the call on the phone in Tita Sis’ bedroom.  I followed him and resumed playing.

“O, ‘ling, Comusta?” [ “Oh, Darling, How are you?” ]  Daddy greeted Mommy.

“Masalese iya y Toto.  We’re having a good time.”  [ “Toto is well.  We’re having a good time.” ]  he reported.

Daddy listened to what Mommy was saying… I looked up to him.  I was curious about what was happening back in Manila…

An increasing grimace…

He scratched his head furiously…

“He what???!!!”  Daddy barked.  I stood up, surprised that Daddy was surprised.

Well, it really was a Surprise!!!  But not really such a bad one!!!  Bwahahahahah!!!   😛   😛   😛
