It is Ina’s birthday and everyone is invited at her house. It is a simple gathering with friends, co-workers, trainees and interns of Time Airways.
Unfortunately medyo masama ang panahon.
Ina: Ano ba naman ito, hindi man lamang nakiayon sa akin ang panahon. Haaaay.
But nonetheless masaya pa rin ito dahil andito ang mga inaasahan niyang mga dapat pumunta.
Among the guests are James Ventura, Diana, Ms. Belmonte, Ms. Pacheco, Emman, Wilson, Ruby, Eds, Maya, Liza, Sonny even Atty. Molina was invited and of course Richard Lim.
It was all fun but when it started raining naguwian na yung iba and just wished Ina a very Happy Birthday.
At dahil sa sama ng panahon halos sila sila na lang ang natira.
They were in the midst of singing “Happy Birthday” song to Ina,
♪♫ Happy Birthday to you.. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Happy Birthdaaaaaay.. Haaaappy Biryhday to…..♪♫
ng biglang nagkaroon ng power outage.
And instead of saying “youuuuuuu” an inevitable screams of (Ay!) and shock roared.
Ina: Whaaaaat???? OMG why me????
They were all glad at hindi pa na blo-blow ni Ina yung candle dahil kahit papano may munting ilaw sila.
James: Ina, kalma it is ok.
Mangiyak ngiyak na si Ina.
James: Calm down Ina, eto pa naman kami ah. Besides mas magiging intimate itong birthday mo. Asan ang mga flashlight at candles mo?
Ina: Uhm, I don’t have flashlight and I only have scented candles. I’ll get it.
Using her cellphone’s flashlight she reached the kitchen cupboard at naglabas ng mga matatangkad at bubwit na mga scented candles and then dumiretso na siya sa sala where everyone is gathering.
Tinulungan naman siya ng mga bisita niya na magsindi ng kandila. Ah the sweet scent of candles was very calming.
Ina: Hmmm come to think of it, this is not bad at all. (Bulong sa sarili and she went all smiles again, seeing how intimate their settings is now)
Emman: Naku roomie, tiningnan ko labas mukhang we are going to be stuck here! Baha to the max!
Richard: Well, I guess it is safe to stay here for a while.
Atty. Ryan: Tama, baka may madisgrasya pa sa atin kung lalabas pa tayo.
James: Hmmm alam ninyo may naisip ako! Why not we play a game na lang!
Emman: Ay Sir James, like ko yan! Anong game po?
James: Ina, what board games do you have here?
Ina: Naku Sir James, wala akong… wait.. ok this is crazy but I remeber playing this when I was in college. Wait kunin ko lang.
Ina: Here oh! (Showing to everyone)
Spin the Bottle.

Eds: Naku Ms. Ina naughty kayo ha!
James: Hmmm interesting! Game ako!
Nagtinginan naman lahat sa isa’t isa, nakiramdam, sizing kung sino ang mga possible na mahahalikan nila. Si Emman seeing Wilson ay kinilig.
Si Ina, seeing Richard, approve siya sa Game.
Si James seeing Maya, “Hmmmm this is my chance!” bulong nito sa sarili.
Ms. Pacheco: I am game! Friendly game lang naman right?
Richard seeing Maya, “Kung si Maya rin lang naman, Why not?” (bulong sa sarili) but seeing James is eyeing her too
Richard: I don’t think it’s a good idea.
Ina: Oh come on Richard, sabi nga ni Ms. Pacheco it is just a friendly game. And hey, what ever happen in this room will stay in this room. Either we got stuck here being bored might as well enjoy each other’s company right?
Wala na rin naman nagawa yung iba because hindi man nila ma-admit, deep inside excited din sila sa game.
James: Ganto na lang, ang tumanggi will drink 1 shot of hot sauce. (Waving a huge bottle of hot sauce)
Atty. Ryan: Yikes! Mukhang wala ng makakatanggi ah.
Some put a face of disgust and everyone expressed defeat.
Isa isa na silang naupo forming a circle.
On clockwise position; Richard, Maya, Emman, Wilson, James, Ms. Pacheco, Ruby, Eds, Liza, Sonny, Atty. Ryan and Ina.
James: Ok! In this game we have the “Spin the Bottle” board and we have this wine bottle. Unang papaikutin ang wine bottle para malaman kung sino ang inyong magiging partner then you will rotate the bottle on this board to know kung ano ang gagawin.
We also have some rules:
1. Ang tumanggi will drink one shot of hot sauce.
2. If you are a guy tapos tumapat sa guy yung bote, you have to rotate it again. Same with girls. Stricly boy to girl, girl to boy lang ang game.
Emman: Ay! Hindi ko na ito like. What about me Sir James?
James: Errr… Technically guy ka pa rin dear, so rules are rules.
Emman: Ay ayoko na Sir, I quit! (tatayo na)
James: Hep hep! You have to drink this one shot of hot sauce.
James: Yes either that or you will continue with the game.
Wala ng nagawa si Emman kundi umupo na lang at sumali sa game.
James: Ok, where was I? Ah!
And lastly, Kung kanino matapat ang bote, will drink a shot of tequilla.
James: Hey! We will be stuck here all night for sure, so might as well finish the booze we have left right? (pointing to 3 bottles of Cuervo)
This is going to be a one crazy night.
