B: So... I wanted to talk to you about traveling.
Me: Why? You fixin to pack off and disappear from the continent?
B: Well my dad is going to go back to the Philippines, and I want to go with him.
Me: When are you leaving?
B: I'm coming down to Texas next week, and then I'm leaving. It was a spur of the moment type thing.
Me: Soooooooo is this continental move permanent, semi permanent, removable with water......?
B: *laughs* Only removable with hot shower water.
Me: No, seriously. Why the sudden move?
B: Dad wants to move, mom doesn't. Lots of fights, not that much love. I wanna get in touch with the home land.
Me: Why the Philippines? I thought your dad was the Japanese one.....
B: It's cheaper in the Philippines. And as far as I know it's going to be permanent with dad. I think mom might end up coming over eventually. They really don't want a divorce, it's just dad it tired of the States. He wants some non Obama/McCain air to breathe.
Me: Oh. I guess that means no more phone calls eh?
B: Sorry. I didn't think about that..... Hey, they'res always the Internet!
Me: Thank Bhudda for Bill Gates.
B: Yeah well I gotta go pack now. Mom wants me to say bye to all the family.
Me: Oh Gawd.
B: Yeah I know. Between her and dad they have about a dozen or more cousins within 50 miles of where we live.
Me: I'm sorry. I should hang up now, that way you'll be able to get started on saying goodbye to all those asians and their antique stores.
B: See you soon. And stay away from motorcycles and---
Me: Motorcycles. Got it. Hanging up now.
