Mga Suggestion na Wild Ideas

Ni Apolinario Villalobos

 

  • Ilibing ang mga namayapang mahal sa buhay, sa madaling araw, pagkatapos ng huling lamay sa gabi. Sa ganitong paraan ay magiging tuluy-tuloy na ang pagpapagod ng mga namatayang kaanak at ng mga nakikiramay na mga kaibigan. Kapag sa araw kasi ang libing, lalo na sa hapon, babalik pa ang mga nagpuyat sa huling lamay para makipaglibing naman. Para sa malalaking lunsod, malaking kabawasan ito sa trapik. Kasama sa serbisyo dapat ng punerarya ang pailaw sa prusisyon papuntang sementeryo at sa sementeryo mismo kung saan ilalagak ang labi ng namayapa.

 

  • Gawing renewable ang marriage contract, civil man o ginawa sa simbahan, at bigyan ng option ang mag-asawa kung ire-renew nila o hindi. May “renewable of vows” nga pero talagang renewal lang na purely ceremonial. Ang choice ay para sa kapakanan ng mga gustong maghiwalay nang legal pero hindi magawa dahil sa kamahalan ng proseso na inaaabot halos kalahating milyong piso. Ganoon din naman kasi ang nangyayari sa mga nagkasawaan na….kanya-kanya sila ng diskarte sa pagli-left turn na may kasamang patay-malisya. Ang umabot sa 50 years o mahigit pang pagsasama ay bigyan ng lifetime na supply ng asin na traditional na symbol ng preservation, pero yong pink salt na galing sa Tibet para may class.

 

  • Ikulong sa Muntinlupa o Bilibid ang mga pabayang huwes na naipunan ng mga kaso, na ang iba ay kinamatayan na ng nagreklamo o inireklamo. Magsasama sila doon ni de Lima na nang tumakbo bilang senadora ay kinalimutan na ang pangakong aaksyunan niya ang mga nakabinbing mga kaso, lalo na ang Ampatuan case.

 

  • Pakainin ng shabu na nilutong pulburon ang mga drug lords 3 times a day kapag sila ay nahuli, at sa halip na asukal, apog ang ihalo.

 

  • Ang mga mahuling kabataan na nagdo-droaga ay dapat ipasailalim sa seminar na ang magka-conduct ay MISMO mga matatandang obispong Katoliko na bumabatikos kay Duterte. Saan man ang mga kabataang nahuli ay dapat puntahan ng mga obispong ito… kahit sa Tawi-tawi o Batanes o Marawi. Sa ganyang paraan ay madanasan nila MISMO kung gaano kahirap ang gumawa ng hakbang upang mawala ang bisyong droga sa Pilipinas.

 

  • Tanggalin ang separation ng simbahan at pamahalaan upang pati mga tauhan ng iba’t ibang simbahan ay magkaroon pagkakataong mamuno. Dapat bigyan sila ng pagkakataon upang patunayan ang kanilang kakayahan sa pagpapatakbo ng gobyerno mula sa barangay hanggang national level upang maiwasan na ang sisihan. Kung noong panahon ng Bibliya, ang mga “patriarch” ay namumuno sa taong bayan…bakit hindi ulitin ngayon?

 

Kung minsan, makakaisip ng maraming bagay na sa panahong kasalukuyan ay imposible, subalit, sa mga susunod na dekada, imposible pa rin kaya ang mga ito?…ganyan ang nangyari sa inimbentong eroplano at barko na pinagtawanan sa simula dahil paano raw lulutang ang eroplanong sa hangin at barko sa tubig dahil sa bigat nila?

UNSOLICITED SUGGESTIONS

By Apolinario Villalobos

 

 

  • IF YOU HAVE TASTED THE FOOD OFFERINGS OF A RESTAURANT AND YOU DISLIKE THEM, JUST DO NOT EVER STEP AGAIN ON ITS THRESHOLD.

 

  • IF YOU HAVE A FRIEND THAT YOU FOUND LATER TO HAVE NOT MET YOUR STANDARDS, KEEP A DISTANCE FROM HIM…BUT DO NOT HATE HIM AS HE DID NOT DO YOU ANY HARM IN ANY WAY. MOST ESPECIALLY, CONTINUE RESPECTING HIS PERSON.

 

  • IF YOU FIND THE PROGRAMS OF CERTAIN TV AND RADIO STATIONS OBNOXIOUS, JUST FORGET THAT THEIR CHANNELS EVER EXIST. DO NOT VIEW OR LISTEN TO THEM EVEN OUT OF CURIOSITY AND FILL YOUR HOME WITH RANTINGS AT THE SAME TIME AS YOU MIGHT DIE OF HEART ATTACK!

 

  • IF YOU DO NOT LIKE CERTAIN HISTORICAL FIGURES, BY ALL MEANS, RESPECT THEIR HAVING RESTED FOR A LONG TIME BY NOT MENTIONING THEIR NAMES TO FRIENDS JUST SO YOU CAN DELIGHTFULLY IMPLY THAT YOU HAVE READ THEIR BIOGRAPHY AND FURTHER GIVE AN IMPRESSION THAT YOU ARE A PROLIFIC READER.

 

  • IF YOU HONESTLY AND SECRETLY ADMIT TO YOURSELF THAT YOU CANNOT DO WHAT OTHERS CAN, DO NOT PULL THEM DOWN….JUST SIT ON THE FENCE AND GAWK AT THEM WHILE EATING YOUR HEART OUT, AS THEY GAIN PROGRESS BY THE DAY.

 

  • IF SERIOUS READING OF BROADSHEETS AND TABLOIDS IS NOT FOR YOU BUT YOU GOT NOTHING ELSE TO DO WHILE THEY ARE TEMPTINGLY LYING AROUND, READ THEM BACKWARD BY STARTING AT THE LAST PAGE, INSTEAD OF CURSING AN AIRLINE FOR YOUR DELAYED DEPARTURE, OR WAITING FOR YOUR NUMBER TO BE CALLED IN A BANK.

 

  • IF YOU ONLY WANT PHOTOS AND EASY-TO-VIEW COPY/PASTED OR SHARED BLOGS IN FACEBOOK, SKIP LONG ESSAYS AND POEMS THAT FB PAGE OWNERS POST ON THEIR SITE INSTEAD OF BASHING THE BLOGGER.  FOR ALL YOU KNOW, THERE COULD BE VIEWERS WHO APPRECIATE THEM, WITH SOME WHO MAY JUST BE SHY TO LET THE BLOGGER KNOW THAT THEY (VIEWERS) STUMBLED UPON THE BLOGS WHILE BROWSING THE PUBLIC POSTS, AND THAT OUT OF CURIOSITY WENT ON READING AND FINALLY RELIEVED SOMEHOW THAT THEY DID NOT PUKE AT THE END!…I LOVE THESE “SHY” VIEWERS….MAY THEIR GOD BLESS THEM!

 

  • IF YOU DO NOT BUY THE VIEWS OF A BLOGGER, COME UP WITH YOUR OWN TO EXHAUSTIVELY COUNTER THEM POINT BY POINT AND POST THEM ON YOUR OWN FB PAGE AS OTHER VIEWERS MAY LIKELY COME ACROSS THEM WHILE THEY BROWSE THE PUBLIC POSTS AND EVENTUALLY AGREE WITH YOU. THIS SHALL PREVENT THE UNNECESSARY EXCHANGES OF COMMENTS IN JUST ONE FB PAGE. BLOGS ARE VIEWS/IDEAS/OPINIONS OF THE BLOGGER. POSITIVE COMMENTS FROM APPRECIATIVE VIEWERS ABOUT THE BLOG OFTENTIMES CONTAIN REMINDERS THAT BECOME ENHANCERS FOR WHICH THE BLOGGER SHOULD BE THANKFUL.

 

  • IF YOU DO NOT WANT YOUR JOB….RESIGN! DO NOT TRY TO DESTROY THE COMPANY THAT SOMEHOW GAVE YOU A SALARY FOR YOUR SUSTENANCE UNTIL YOU FOUND LATER THAT IT IS NOT COMMENSURATE TO YOUR SKILL.

 

  • IF YOU DO NOT LOVE YOUR PARTNER ANYMORE, DO NOT BETRAY THE TRUST CONTAINED IN A CONTRACT THAT BOTH OF YOU SIGNED….JUST CUT THE STRING THAT CONNECT YOU WITH ALL FORMAL CIVILITY.  IN MANY INSTANCES, “SEPARATEDS” EVENTUALLY BECOME “BEST FRIENDS”. IN OTHER WORDS, THE MARRIAGE CONTRACT MAY HAVE BEEN THE “CONSTRICTING FACTOR” IN THEIR “TOGETHERNESS”…AFTER REALIZING FURTHER THAT WHAT THEY NEED IS ACTUALLY, A  “WIDEST POSSIBLE BREATHING SPACE”….OR SIMPLY SAID, THEY ARE NOT MEANT FOR EACH OTHER AS “HUSBAND” AND “WIFE” WHICH ENTAILS TOTAL “CONTROL” OVER EACH OTHER’S LIFE.
