An Encounter with a Consul

One of my errands today among many was go to Watson’s to get some toiletries. When I was done picking up my items there was a short line in the cashier. Behind me was an elderly sosyal looking lady and she was with her friend.

I suddenly felt a gentle tapped on my shoulder and she told me: “you look so familiar. I think I met you before already. I just can’t remember where and when.”

me: really? (I looked at her but she didn’t look familiar to me)

sosyal lady: yes, I think I met you already. You look so familiar. Are you from here?

me: yes. I’m from Makati. Dasmariñas Village

sosyal lady: oh, I am from Dasma also! Maybe I’ve seen you around the village

me: ya, maybe! Do you read our monthly magazine? Dasmariñas Gazette?

sosyal lady: yes!

me: I am one of the writers in our village magazine that’s why maybe I look familiar to you.

sosyal: oh, yes! I think that’s why you look familiar! What’s your name?

I told her my name and she said: “I am *bleep* and she introduced me to her equally sosyal friend.

me: nice to meet you!

sosyal lady: here, let me give you my card. My consulate office is in Glorietta. I am the consul of Togo.

Where the heck is Togo? But I didn’t want to look ignorant to her, so I said:

me: oh my god, really? I’ve always wanted to go to Togo!

The cashier called me cos it was my turn already. So, I said good bye to them and told her I’ll visit her in her office!

Where the heck is Togo? When I got to the car, I hurriedly googled Togo.

It is in Africa.
