Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Laughter First

I was at the gym reception area with my nutritionist to avail of a new package. After I signed the form, she gave it to the cashier. As he was inputting data into their computer, the cashier asked her, “For how many sessions?”

She replied, “Six.”

“…thousand sessions,” I joked. We both laughed; she even cracked, “Oh no, we’d have to meet every day!” When the laughter subsided I thought that was the end of it.

As the cashier was printing out the receipt, my nutritionist suddenly blurted out, “Uy! That would be 18 years.”

Anubahnamanyano! I-compute mo bah, gagah?!

I swear, our gym is actually a comedy bar disguised as a fitness club.

(Okay, so she was off by a couple of years: 6,000 days is equal to around 16.5 years. She’s a nutritionist, not a mathematician.)

@CARRIE: Yes, at RCBC Plaza. (pause) Er, magka-gym mates ba tayo?

~Carrie~ said...

Mr Mcvie, di po. Nakita ko pala sa MGG site yung Binondo video ninyo. Nice. You're the celebrity bloggers :)

@CARRIE: Bakit before seeing the Binondo video, ang tawag mo sa akin ay "Mr. McVie", pero after seeing the video ang tawag mo sa akin ngayon ay, "Mr. McVie po"?!

Ayoko ng masyadong ginagalang! Feeling ko papanaw na ako sa makalawa, hahaha. Bastusin mo naman ako ng konti, hm'kay? =)

Hehe, ok, Mr McVie.

meron akong witty na comment sa post na ito. kaya lang, nabasa ko ung exchange nyong dalawa na ~carrie~. nakalimutan ko tuloy, leche!

magpalitan kaya kayo ng ym at doon mag-usap nang ganyan para di nadi-distract ang mga nagco-comment?
