The List of 10 excuses that we gave our employers so we can take two weeks off from work:
1. "Ga-mud-ok ko ug usa ka semana sa opis. Da, ning-sugot lagi!"
2. "Sir, may kaso ko sa korte sa Asagra kabahin as akong yuta; kinahanglan tu-a ko....." (Ag yuta diay tu-a sa masetera!)
3. "Ma'am, namatay ag akong Lola!" (Maayo gani kay wala mangutana ug kanus-a namatay si Lola, kay ag sa 1975 pa man 'to!)
4. "Sir, mamatay (future tense) ang akong Lola during the week of July 21-28. Kinahanglan tu-a ko sa iyang deathbed kay unya dili ko maka-inherit sa punong!" (Lola, pasaylo-a jud ko intawon nga akong gi-predict ug kanus-a ka mamatay; ug dili mahinayon, okey lang, mokumpisal ra ko...)
5. "Ma'am, my cardiologist wants me to take a stress test in the heat and humidity of my hometown, because that is the only accurate way to measure my heart capacity!" (Kadtong cardiologist siguro na-hagbong 'to sa board exams!)
6. "Sir, I have been asked to be the commencement speaker at Tabuc University in my hometown!" (Maayo gani kay wala maka-hibalo ang boss ug unsa ang school calendar nato!)
FLASH: For those Tanjayanons who are not going to attend the Fiesta in Tanjay, we are having a DESPEDIDA PICNIC, PARTY and ELECTIONS on Saturday, July 12, 1997. See page 9 for details. See you all there.
