Hindi yung ilong ko ang gusto kong pagusapan natin, kundi yung salitang “Flip”. Ano ba ibig sabihin nun? Bakit ako sinabihang mukhang Flip? May tagalog ba nito? Naglaro sa aking isipan kung ano ibig sabihin nito at ito ang natuklasan ko.

Flip: Goodlooking, Agreeable to the eye or to correct taste; having a pleasing appearance or expression; attractive; having symmetry and dignity.

(Pawang walang katotohanan po itong nasa itaas at gawa-gawa ko lang)

Ito po ang tunay:

Flip: to become insane, irrational, angry, or highly excited (verb: go mad, go crazy)

Flip (slang), a slang word used to refer to Filipinos (source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flip)

Hindi ako matinong tao at inaamin ko yan at siguro alam mo din yan bago ko pa malaman. Hindi lang kahulugan ng salitang “Flip” ang natuklasan ko sa internet, maging ang salitang-ugat nito. Ito raw ay galing sa salitang Filipinos (opo tama po ang binabasa nyo!) slang language daw yung Flip for Filipinos na ang meaning eh “f****** little island people or funny little island people”. Kung isa kang pinoy at nabasa mo ang bagay na ito eh tiyak rereglahin ka! Magiinit ang ulo mo sa tao/mga tao na nagimbento ng salitang ito, at kung hindi mo mapigilan ang sarili baka makapatay ka pa ng sampung libong american cockroach! (Interesting facts: American cockroaches are the largest of the common roaches.)

Flip man ako, ikaw, tayo eh hindi ko alam. Wala akong pakialam sa opinion ng iba, may sarili akong opinion! At akin nalang yun……. Pero kung pipilitin mo ako eh sasabihin ko din naman.

Ikaw: Cge na please, ano ba opinion mo?

Ako: Pilitin mo muna ako…..

Ikaw: uhmmm… eto tatlong daan pwede na ba?

Ako: May prinsipyo ako sa buhay, pero dahil kaibigan kita cge na na nga! Hindi ka naman iba sa’kin, ilagay mo nalang sa bulsa ko…

Ikaw: ……

Ako: Bilis habang walang nakatingin.

Nuong Abril 20, 1999, sa Columbine High School, Colorado, USA, dalawang estudyante ang pumatay sa labing dalawang kapwa nila istudyante at isang guro, habang dalawamput apat naman ang sugatan, matapos ang pangyayari agad nilang sinunod ang kanilang sariling buhay. Gamit ng dalawa ang sawed-off shotgun, 9mm Hi-point carbine, 9mm TEC-9 semi-automatic pistol at ibat-ibang pang pampasabog!

Pero may mas matindi pa dyan, si Andrew Kehoe school board member ng Bath Consolidated School. Matapos patayin ang sariling asawa at sunugin ang kanilang bukirin eh sinunod ang iskuwelahang pinapasukan, sunod-sunod na pagsabog at kumitil ng 48 katao. Karamihan ay istudyanteng nasa ikalawa at ikaanim na baytang ng nasabing eskuwelahan.

Yan ang FLIP!
