Noon kasi mag syota pa lang:
GF: Aray! Natapilok ako!
BF: Baby, baby, ok ka lang, gusto mo kargahin kita? Gusto mo bilhan kita ng ospital?
Ngayon kasi mag-asawa na:
Babae: Aray! Natapilok ako!
Lalake: Palibhasa lampa ka eh! Tumahimik ka nga diyan!

It works better in Cebuano actually. Let me write it out again.
Sa una, sa manag-uyab pa:
GF: Agay! Natakilpo ko!
BF: Gang, ok ra ka? Gusto ka kuguson tika? Gusto ka palitan tikag ospital?
Karon kay managti-ayon naman:
Babaye: Agay! Natakilpo ko!
Lalake: Danghag man lang ka da!

There, I told you it works better in Cebuano.
Ever heard of the expression “It was so funny it made me cry?”
Doesn’t life feel that way sometimes? You know, you get dealt a bummer but you refuse to acknowledge it, you try to convince yourself you can lick it and make it better. Lemons to lemonade and all that sh*t? You need a lot of sugar to do that, but what if you’re out of sugar, it’s too late at night to go out and buy some or you just don’t feel like it, or maybe you’ve arrived at that point where deep in your heart of hearts, you just don’t give a damn?
What happens then?
