Prank minds

My sister and I were standing by the main lobby door of a Manila hotel and we noticed that there was a table with three lists and gift-wrapped presents. We assumed that each list referred to the three weddings going on inside, and that the gifts were stacked by the guests of the appropriate wedding.

My sister and I feed on each other’s naughty side. We started talking about how odd that the lists and presents were on display at the front of the hotel. Not much privacy for the recipients, what? I contemplated (out loud with her urging of course) what would happen if a rather brisk wind (Typhoon Tan) blew the lists astray, and upon recovery, were misplaced. Would the bride feel the misfortune of getting Landmark bought plastic cutlery versus the Oneida silver tongs she had registered for at Rustans? How would the security explain it? Let me point out that while my sister and I were plotting, there was no one watching over the table. We could easily have messed around with those lists.

My brother-in-law joined the fray and suggested that we could also mosey up to the tables, and add certain names to the list of gift givers; oh, say Henry Sy, Lance Gokongwei, and Lucio Tan. That would definitely raise a tizzy, wondering where the missing gift had gone to.

Thank goodness our parents had gone home, they'd have been very disapproving of our grown up misbehaviour.
