On Fatherhood and the Importance of Enunciation

This gave me actual tears, so I thought I'd share.

So a while ago during the monthly party, someone wanted to go to the restroom. Now sometimes we can't help but converse in Filipino but when our Japanese officemates are around we try to translate.

David: Ah, Marci will got to CR. She is... tatae. Do you know tatae?
Boss: Yes. It means father.


Now take a deep breath and ask yourself this: have you fathered anything lately?
