I blurted out this question while I was lying half-awake (or half-asleep) in our bed.
Wifey, ever so supportive of her hubby, treated it like a normal conversation.
"Wala naman siyang wings. Tsaka naging ganyan naman siya because of chemical reactions," she said.
"Ah okay." And I went back to sleep.
Just one of our weird conversations that pop up in the wee hours of the morning, with one of us in a dream-like state.
The most unforgettable of these conversations happened during our honeymoon in 2006, in Boracay.
"Wag munang gagalawin ang pagkain!" says wifey, loud and clear. But eyes closed.
I ventured on a question, "Bakit, pangga?"
"Hindi pa napipiktyuran," and she went quiet. Back to sleep.
Maybe someday one of us will recite the winning lotto numbers *fingers crossed*.
Of course my Incredible Hulk and pixie mash up was not without a basis.
I have been reviewing Marvel movies, in preparation for the Ironman sequel, coming next year.
At the same time, I have the entire Artemis Fowl series running in my handheld device, all eight books of it. I'm now at book five, and so full of fairies, sprites, elves, dwarves, criminal mastermind boy genius, and bodyguard extraordinaire imageries.
I guess every now and then I need to nurture the inner kid in me. ^^
