Pasta Party No. 1
Theme: Spaghetti Day
When: September 9, 2008
We woke up very early in the morning with the aroma of spaghetti sauce lingering throughout the Ilonggo House. One of our hoomans, manang Rhoda ( manang R’) is a known spaghetti authority while manang is a known spaghetti dispenser, and it was one of those blessed days.
Before digging in, it’s always best to start with a prayer.
“Bless us O’ Lord in these thy gifts
Which we dogs and humans,
are about to receive from Thy bounty,
thru Christ Our Lord
(a japanese expression used before eating. usually means, 'let's eat'. this had formed part of manang and manong's habit)
Manong said it was Poopie’s monthly birthday, and so in the spirit of giving,
Yummy… Now I know why these silly hoomans celebrate Spaghetti Day.
It’s my turn again manong Aki
I’d normally give in and let the little Poopster gobble her way through my food
(Poopie’s Note: Right. *rolls eyes*)
but manang said it’s always better to SHARE.
Not to mention, manong promised to give me a ‘popo’ if I will be a good boy.
Now, about that promise that you made manong…
How about a big fat kiss instead, Aki?
You know I won’t accept any excuses.
That’s more like it.
(Note from The Inu Ogler: Aki’s ‘popo’ lasted for only a few seconds. These were the only pictures taken before manong’s arms wilted and gave up on his weight.)
