Flight of the Iguana

A rich Negrense lady sat in her posh Makati living room chomping down a mound of “chicharon” which she was dunking into a bowl of vinegar with red hot chilis… from her fashionably contemporary living room one saw an interesting vista of the Japanese-style garden with a lot of “daing” [ dried fish ] drying under the sun…  No, she most definitely wasn’t in the “daing” business, far too rich for that, she just couldn’t live without “daing”…

“Lola…”  her grandson greeted her.

“Hello dearie…”  she embraced him.

“Lola, I want to bring my baby iguana with me to New York.”  the grandson said.  He eagerly showed his baby iguana to his Lola.  She nearly fainted.

“You want to bring that with you…”  sighed Lola.  “OK, we will find out how…”

Lola called her “amigas”… “My grandson wants to bring his baby iguana to New York.  Would you have any idea how?  Which airline should we take?  Should we take First Class or Coach if we have the baby iguana with us? ”

“Why must the boy bring his baby iguana to New York?  What a lot of bother.  Can’t he just buy one there?”

“Well, he wants to bring it.  To avoid all the fuss, I was thinking of… just carrying it in my pocket.”  said Lola, squirming at her own brilliant idea.

“In your pocket?  Are you crazy?  What exactly are you thinking???  You can get detained for that!”

“Well, I was thinking I could save USD $$$ money that way…”

    In her case, a cup of misery for every dime saved. Tee-hee.

    Class is really something money can’t buy.

    I’m adopting the principles
    of my parents in the Conservation of Resources:
    as simple as plugging-off powercords when not in use…
    eating everything what was ordered or prepared, and etc.
    in short, Do NOT Waste.”
