Chalk It Up

My father celebrated his 61st birthday, December 23. I've yet to get him a present. I remember telling him about four years ago that his birthday was earmarked by those pioneers of the calendar, the Mayans. They called their calendar the Tzolkin. It's so accurate as ancient calendars go, and after all these centuries it's still only off by a few odd seconds. According to the Mayans, the world ends with a cataclysm on December 23, 2012. That would be Dad's 65th.

I'm going to buy him a pair of pants and wish him a long life.

happy b/day kay bossing senior. salamat din dun sa eotw info dahil taliwas pala sa placard ng matanda sa may edsa, sabi kasi, the world ends tomorrow. e hindi ko na lang pala muna babayaran mga utang ko.

may makapal na antho nga pala ako sa iyo, edited by your kumpareng john updike. kaso nahiya naman akong ipakiusap kay gwen. kaganda kasing bata.

anyway, kung tipo mo (yung book, hindi si gwen) bigay mo lang address mo. or mag-iwan ka instruction kung saang puno o lamppost ko pwedeng itago at dun mo na lang sya iretrieve.

happy new year!
