Do you see that photo? It’s a gnarly piece of ube (purple yam), looking every bit like a tumor that has multiplied, reeking of death and waiting to take someone’s life. Don Domeng dug it up from the backyard… of our neighbor. 😆
I know our neighbor does not care about their ube, they might not even know they have ube on their backyard, but I can’t help but laugh, imagining their faces as they see this huge hole on their backyard, near our wall.
I picture the neighbor’s young wife, in front of our gate, asking “May nakita po kayong ube [Did you see any purple yam?]?” and we would make horrible poker faces denying it.
Actually, this happened to us before, when a chicken from the other neighbor crossed the wall, into our house, and our dogs chased the chicken out. Soon enough, the head of the son of the other neighbor pops above our wall and asks if we had seen a chicken and we said no, even when their were chicken feathers all across the living room.
Oh man, I swear, Don Domeng is totally rad. 😎
