Do you remember Mang Delfin? He used to take me to school using that trusty yellow and black trike of his. That was 22 years ago, can you believe? I saw him again early last month, and he looks the same! He asked me about Kathlene, about you and Pa, about Kuya and Byron, and I sat on his trike (still the same one he drove all those years ago) realizing I didn't know anything about him aside from his first name. You used to give him Christmas presents. He's a comforting reminder of when things were so much simpler.
