Maaaring nagtataka kayo kung bakit ako nagpatawag tayo ngpress conference (Thank you all for coming. You might be wondering why I called for a pressconference),” said an unkempt Binay, who was still in her pajamas and looked like she justwoke up.“May napanaginipan ako kagabi (Last night, I had a dream),” narrated Binay. “Senador na dawako at gumanda na daw ang buhay ng mga Pilipino (I was a senator and the welfare of theFilipino people was beautiful).““Nung isang araw lang, binilhan ako ni Mommy ng mga damit at sapatos na pangSenado eh .Kaya masasabi ko na sigurado na ang tagumpay ko (Just the other day, mommy bought me a
full set of wardrobe for me to wear to the senate. That is why I’m confident to say that myvictory is inevitable).”She went on to add, “Kaya sa mga wala pa ding tiwala o di kaya’y hindi matanggapang siguradong mangyayari (pause) bahala kayo sa buhay nyo (So to all my detractors who hasno faith in my capabilities (pause) that’s your problem)! “When asked by a member of the press how confident she was, the inexperienced candidatequipped, “Confident na confident! Made na made na talaga ako.“But the overconfident candidate did not stop there. Before handing the microphone back to herspokesperson, Binay made another shocking announcement.“In fact, sobrang confident ako na mananalo ako, no matter what, na hinahamon ko angsambayanang Pilipino na huwag akong iboto sa Lunes (In fact, I am so confident of my victorythat I dare the entire Filipino people to not vote for me this coming Monday)!”When asked to repeat what she just said to avoid confusion, she said: “Inuulit ko. Sa mga bobotosa akin sa darating na Lunes, huwag nyo na akong iboto (I repeat. To everyone who’sconsidering voting for me this coming Monday, don’t. Don’t vote for me)!”The previously soft-spoken Binay was now oozing with confidence and bravado that she went onto add, “Sa mga boboto sa akin, please lang ibigay nyo nalang ang boto nyo kay Falcone o dikaya kay Penson (To everyone who will vote for me, please kindly give your vote to eitherFalcone or Penson instead).“In fact, let’s make it more interesting. Dinedare ko kayo na ibigay nyo ang boto nyo kay RisaHontiveros imbes na sa akin (I dare you to instead give your vote to Risa Hontiveros instead ofme).““Tinitiyak ko sa inyo na mananalo pa din ako (I guarantee you all that I will still come out thevictor)!”After that, the press conference was over.Are you up for the challenge?
