The Way of the Scottish

Pauwi kami ni Narra isang hapon. Sa labas ng isang pub, may nakasalubong kaming mamang nagra-random walk.

Excuse me. Excuse me.
— Yes?
Excuse me. I’m very drunk.
(Totoo nga. Dukot sya ng pera sa bulsa.)

I’m very drunk but can I give your … . Is that your daughter? Son?
— He’s a boy, yes.
Can I give your boy there a pound? Is that o.k.?
— Would you like a pound, Narra?
—— Yes.
Here you are, thank you.
—— Thank you.
Can I shake your hand?
(Kamayan sila ni Narra).
Thank you.
—— Thank you.
(Alis na sya. Lakad na rin kami.)

Nganong gihatagan man ka niya’g kwarta, Narra?
— I don’t know.
Basi’g bayad sa inyong shake hands.
— No, you don’t pay to shake someone’s hand. You just say, Hey man! Then shake!
