So I was hanging out at the school's canteen today before the 10 minute recess began, drinking some buko juice, and got to see one of the funniest mosquito slaps ever. There's one lady who comes to the school everyday to sell the best bananque ever. She's really sweet, I like her a lot. She was standing behind her bamboo table that was piled high with delicious treats when Swynford, one of the second year students, walked up to her. She says, "Come closer. Closer." He hesitantly inches forward, not sure what's going on, when all of a sudden WHAM! Out of nowhere, the sweet banaque lady slaps him on the cheek. Swynford kind of had this look of shock, like, "What did I do?! I just wanted some bananauqe!" She brings her hand away, and in the center of her palm is the splatter of blood from the mosquito that had been on his cheek. I start laughing because for some reason this is the funniest thing I've seen all day, the lady chuckles, and Swynford is left wiping off the aftermath from his face with this look of horror. In short, Bananaque Lady saves the day!
