Jouska Tertius

Jouska – n. a hypothetical conversation that you compulsively play out in your head—a crisp analysis, a cathartic dialogue, a devastating comeback—which serves as a kind of psychological batting cage where you can connect more deeply with people than in the small ball of everyday life, which is a frustratingly cautious game of change-up pitches, sacrifice bunts, and intentional walks.

Habang nagbabasa ng mga report sa Starbucks….

A: Hindi ka nanaman nagsasalita, Yan.

L: Oo nga ngayon nga lang ulit tayo nagkasama.

A: Hay nako! (sabay irap) siya na naman?! Ewan ko sayo.

L: Akala ko ba okay na, besh?

C: Okay naman na talaga. (kinukumpas ang kamay)

C: OO NGA!!!….bitch. Kayo ba kamusta na kayo kay Ted???!!
