It's Cheap and Expensive!

I can iron my own shirt.

I'm fully domesticated and I'm actually pretty good at it. (after over 10 years of intensive self-training and about a dozen burnt garbs, I better be!)

Last Friday I was ironing the shirt I'm planning to wear for our family's post-new year dinner party when Garandee asked me if I can also do her blouse while I'm at it.

Garando: "You mean this white one? Ok sure..."

Garandee: "Please be careful. Check to make sure that the iron's clean to prevent stains, carefully check the heat to avoid burning the fabric."

Garando: "Ok! No worries, you're looking at an expert."

Garandee: "Be very careful! That's very expensive!!"

Now hold on a second... How come whenever we'd go shopping then I'll see her with a shopping bag, before I can even say anything she's quick to tell me, "Wow! it's so cheap, it's such a bargain!!"

Now I'm about to iron it, it's suddenly "very expensive"?

I'm confuzed...

Garandee: "Because when I put it on it becomes very expensive! ...di ba?"

Garando: " ... " (slaps forehead)


Garando mode:
This is me in the office tomorrow....

Galing ni garandee! Yan ang fighting spirit! Actually, kahit sa Divisoria lang yan, pag nasuot ng tama, namumukha talagang mahal! :)

Hi kg! Tuwang tuwa si Garandee sa comment mo! "SHEMPRE!" daw. (one of the few tagalog words she knows). Hehe :D

hahaha in tagalog: "Sa nagdadala lang yan.hahaha" I guess u have to add this to ur certain list manong. #4. It's not the price that counts...it's who wears it that matters.hehehe Go garandee! also, we women sometimes have this rationalization: It's cheap when we super like it...ooops i slipped!hehe

Hi All,
Thanks for your comment, this is now Garandee's favorite post! Hmmm, no wonder she shops for my clothes now. I probably looked like a bargain the first time she met me. :D

would you believe i do the same line as garandee, every time my husband sees me i have bought some clothes? he has just merely looked at the shopping bag and i expertly go over the same "what a bargain..!" line. :D

Alice Teh said...

Garando, you must be a fantastic bargain then. Garandee has good eyes. :D

dyosa said...

Hahahahaha! Wala akong masabi. Magaling bumanat si Garandee.

Garando said...

@Ms Firefly
Thanks for dropping by! I tried using that line after Garandee saw the new TV in our room. Somehow it didn't work and I got into a lot of trouble. I guess it only works for ladies? :D

@AliceTeh
I guess it's a hit and a miss. There was one time she bought me this pink shirt that made me look like a gigolo.

@dyosa
Kaya nga dapat yata di matuto mag tagalog to eh. Lalo akong lalalag-lagin. :D

caryn said...

wahahaha! i use the same line with my hubby; "there was a sale at marui! this was such a steal!" waahahah!

Garando said...

@Caryn
LOL! Ok, now that proves that majority if not all the wifeys say the exact same thing to their hubbies! ...maybe except John McCains wife.
Hala, bistado na kayo! :D
