  • 6. Unlock the Words! • My first acquaintance with groggy GIs began one late afternoon. • My hempen trousers were rolled up to my knees. My bolo was at my side. • A warm miasmic smell rose from the mire. When the first American troops invaded the Philippines in 1898, carabaos used to chase the Yankee soldiers off the fields. • It goes straight up to the sky like a skyscraper. It symbolizes the States.
  • 7. • I quaffed my drink down and followed it with a slice of kalamansi dipped in unrefined salt. • He wanted to know why I had bombed Pearl Harbor and committed so many atrocities when Americans had never done them any harm. • He said he was privy to all the war atrocities that I had perpetrated, but he was a personal friend of General Douglas MacArthur, I need not worry. • With great effort he got up on his feet and wobbled toward Mother.
  • 8. • The rubescent sun was fast sinking against a roseate sky. • So I filled a coconut shell with oil, dipped a timsin wick in the fluid, then lighted the wick. It produced a wavering, dull yellow light. • If you imbibe enough of it, your senses amalgamate and you get to hear three-dimensional rondalla music in color. • On my way here in a transport I got soused on torpedo juice.
  • 9. • Our wassail was over. It just goes to show you that one man's drink is another man's poison. • Joe narrowly escaped being shot for a straggler. He staggered from side to side then his legs turned to noodles and he collapsed on the ground -- flat as a starfish. • I knew that the soldiers had to be back in their garrison at a given hour. And since Joe had been a compotator, I felt it my obligation to take him back to camp.
