A Plate Story: His, Hers @ Parklane Cebu

Backpacking with a Book

A conversation between imaginary parents about their imaginary kids.

“What if she’d get hurt”
“Let her appreciate the pain”
“I mean, physical”

“Teach her self-defense. Or let’s have a boy first. He will be the guard. And we won’t be overprotective parents, will we?”
“Nah, but I’ll worry a lot.”

“Ah, what are we doing.”
“No future references”
“We can’t help it.”
“We never know what the future has in store for us. Perhaps there is no us there.”

“But at least we create our future here, now. Whatever happens, we won’t blame ourselves for not having a future together since we do weave one.”

You always ordered coffee for one. Thank you. 😉
