Bewigged, Bothered, and Bewildered

Octogenarian Premiere Jeweler, in one of her diabetic mood swings, complained to her fiftysomething Mordant Nephew that She was losing her hair…

It was about time anyway, Mordant Nephew thought naughtily.  It was probably caused by all those fat-laden “Ensaimadas,” “Jamon Belota,” “Queso Manchego,” etc., etc., etc..  He himself was slightly ill with all the “Fabada,” “Smithfield” Virginia Ham, and “Cabeza de Jabali” that were regular fare on his own table.  After all, Premiere Jeweler and Mordant Nephew, like all Capampangans, liked to eat… very well!!! 

At least, Mordant Nephew thought, it was a good excuse to finally have a bonnet studded with diamonds, big diamonds!!!  Even Imelda Marcos didn’t have anything like that.  At her late age, Premiere Jeweler could still look hip, as in “hiphop”!!!

“With all your money, Why don’t you have a wig made???  A couture wig???”  Mordant Nephew suggested to his Aunt.   

“I don’t want a wig!!!  It’s itchy!!!”  complained Premiere Jeweler.

“If you wear a wig, you could look like George Washington…”  added Mordant Nephew sweetly. 

“Hah???!!!”  She wondered aloud.  Why on earth should She want to look like “George Washington”???!!!

“Take note, I said George Washington.  NOT Martha!!!”  qualified Mordant Nephew.

“Puneta!!!”  swore Premiere Jeweler.

Bwihihihi…   😛   😛   😛

    I guess she ain’t the only one who’s sharp-tongued in her famille!

    Hmmm, I wonder if sharp-tongued nephew will be given a share of the treasure chest when the bling bling queen passes on….or are there other claimants?
