Overheard while walking along a path of parked tricycles.
Young Tricycle Driver: “Aanhin mo ang pera kung patay ka na?” (“What will you do with your money if you’re dead?”
Older Tricycle Driver: “Aanhin mo ang kabataan kung nag-sha-shabu ka? (“What will your youth do for you if you smoke shabu?”)
I gather that the older tricycle driver is trying to counsel the younger driver not to use the illegal drug shabu. I tend to agree, what good will it do to one’s youth if it is wasted on a drug habit?
I can think of so many worthwhile things one can do during his/her youth. I’m sure you can, too.
