Answering Guy’s questions

As this is a Mystery Blogger award, l believe the questions should take on a decidedly edgy curve…Mawahahaha!

If you were trapped on an isolated hilltop after your plane had crashed with your family and friends, would you resort to starvation or cannibalism?


If your best friend had murdered someone would you help bury the body?


Do you ever wonder – what next – after the end of your time? if so, what is next?

Barb Natividad, the renowned author!

You know in the movies when the victims are being chased by the terrible nasty and they hit them, and think they are dead, but look back and discover the body gone?? If this was YOU how would you ensure the thing stays dead?

Continually stomp on their head. I’d get my friends to help me, too, so it couldn’t escape.

What’s the meanest thing you have ever hoped would happen to someone ……….. eh??

That a former professor’s current husband leaves her for a man.

My Letter:

Dear Papa,

I miss you so much. When my parents left the Philippines for the US, you and Mama took care of me; it was like the two of you were really my parents.

Tita Gin recently told me that you and I were inseparable, and reminded me that on your mahjong nights, I would hide your shirt while you were in the shower thinking you’d have to stay home without a shirt to wear! Apparently, I even begged Mama to buy you a mahjong set of your own so you wouldn’t have to go out to play, not knowing that you already owned one!

You indulged me so much that most people would say that you spoiled me. I think there’s truth to that. It’s hard for me to hear the word, “No,” then, and even now. When someone tells me “no,” I fret and fidget and huff and puff ’til I blow someone’s house down — metaphorically, that is! When I was a toddler, you always turned those “noes” around to “yeses.” Probably not a good thing, but that was our relationship. I guess you loved me so much that you couldn’t stand not seeing me get what I wanted.

I was 6 and living with my parents in the US when you died of a massive heart attack. I’m not sure I even knew what death was, but I knew that you weren’t coming back. I was devastated when my parents wouldn’t let me go to the Philippines to see you one last time because I was in school. I silently raged about that for a long time. I remember punching my pillow, and crying myself to sleep every night for a month. In August, my mom took me to the Philippines so we could pay our respects. It wasn’t the same without you there.

As an adult, I wonder what type of person I’d be like today, if you hadn’t died. Would I be an insufferable (except to you) princess, would I have been the doctor I wanted to be (because you were one and I wanted to be just like you). I don’t know.

But please know, that I have NEVER forgotten you. I love you so much, Papa.


Chic (my Filipino nickname)


Thanks again to Mental Health @ Home and Revenge of Eve for nominating me.❤️  Happy blogging everyone!
