Tying the Knot

One Saturday afternoon, we were having “merienda” with a Pampanga grande dame in her beautiful and immaculate residence.  She was a delightful spring of memories:  She remembered many important events, knew Everybody because she was related to all of them, and could explain why Everything happened because she really knew the personalities involved and the real reasons why they happened.  She knew the lowdown on Everything!!!  We were having a marvelous time.  She was a historian’s dream come true.         

We commented on how Everybody had married Everybody else and how entangled the various families were…

The grande dame was sarcastic:  “Well, with whom did you expect them to tie the knot with?  The Carabao???!!!”

She meant something with that.  *wink*
