Scenes from a Seminar

A participant leafing through a catalogue
Slippers shared by two participants – and wayward shoes unceremoniously shoved under the chair
A stifled yawn
Heels, heels, uncomfortable heels
Know-it-alls biting more than they could chew
Me shuttling between two windows when I should be documenting

BUT really, this seminar on ethics and accountability is NOT boring. How can it be, when it is peppered with colorful glossary such as:

Anak ng Diyos
Backdoor entry
Barya-barya lang
Behind-the-curtain-deal
Bureaucrazy
Cash-unduan
Consuholtant
Daya Time Record
For official’s use only
Friendsters
If the price is right
Kagalang-galang na magnanakaw
Komisyon-er
Republic Act 1530
Representathieves


I guess it’s true: corruption knows many languages. And no matter how you call it, it's still corruption. AND, sadly, it is every where. Tsk. Tsk.

That's why I hate attending seminars, unless of course there's free food, hehe.
