My sister will take the risk.
May 19, 2016 8:11am CST
When I drove my sister to the grocery store yesterday, we dropped by the bus terminal; she asked how many hours it will take to reach the capital city. (She previously placed a reservation for a night trip tomorrow), and she was answered 14 hours. Well and good, she whispered, but then, the bus driver said there should be a leeway of 16 to 18 hours. My sister cannot refund the ticket so she said she will take the risk of sitting for that length of time. The whole day today, she was out, buying homemade sausages (longganisa) and milk candy for her 2 daughters and grandson. She also bought a kilogram each of the sausages for our 3 brothers. She plans to leave a kilo for me and my son but I refuse because we are here anyway. My sister is scoliotic. She feels pain when in prolonged sitting. I wonder what she will do during the very long trip. I advised her too, to use just 1 mobile phone (the old one) and not bring out the other phones she has. She will be back, God willing, when the school opens, or when I will start with my duty in July. This is her vacation for this year (well, every year she goes there anyway). What risks do you take to achieve a goal?

she texted me early morning, and i was not surprised when she said the journey was smooth-sailing with no traffic at all; just one lane in that mountain range but it went smoothly. the trip took just 12 hours, thank God, so i feel she did not have the back pain she expected to experience (my sister is pessimistic).

with the power interruption for nearly 12 hours yesterday, the home made sausages were not frozen completely. it is good the trip took about 12 hours only, so the sausages did not thaw. why oxymoron? there are sausages that are really home made her, and the woman where my sister bought made those sausages with her original flavor, that my siblings and my sister's daughter crave for these.

is she going to a resort or something? you said vacation.. one time, i took a long bus ride early in the morning. the bus was half empty so i had the whole lane/seat for myself, i laid down and slept the whole ride, she can probably do that.
