Most Wednesdays finds us on the road less travelled. We trade recycled air for fresh air, we eat fish and gulay na langka and newly harvested rice. We leave our modulars and unplug ourselves from the net and from the comforts of free-flowing coffee.
Wednesdays, in short, is our reality check.
Sometimes, reality can be as jarring as children who should be in school but aren't. Or as disturbing as a teenager pregnant with her third child. Sometimes it can be as funny as a little boy named "Brownie." Or as grounding as a daycare center making do with "toys" that our children take for granted.
And sometimes, reality can come in the form of a prescription advising the patient to "increase fluid and take."
