NaNoPoblano 2022: What Say You?

#NaNoPoblano2022 Day 4

I like conversations, like I said before. So I write comments to posts. Most times, they bomb, nobody cares about what I think. But a few times, oh, wow, they surprise me! What’s more surprising, though, is I usually don’t know WHY. It’s usually just simple comments, not even silly ones, and people hit the LIKE button for some reason. But hey, you know, I’m human. I can’t say I don’t enjoy some of that.

I’m sharing these few ones, explain a bit, and you decide if the LIKES are worth it (HA HA HAAA!!!). MORE TO COME!!!

Comment 1

This one’s new but there were already 443 LIKES when I took this screenshot. I guess they liked my true story…? Someone asked if my phone was still functional after. It was, because it fell directly down a pile of things. PLUS, it was a very low-tech cellphone.

By “low-tech”, I mean analog, LOL!!! If you know me, you’d know that for the longest time, I resisted owning touchscreen mobiles for myself (mainly for practicality’s sake). I have them now but I still held on to an analog up until the pandemic. I really just don’t like texting/typing onscreen. I prefer the feel of an actual keypad.

Translation: “Ha ha, I’ve seen that. Whose account is that again? I think it’s Kristel’s.”

This was a silly local trend a few year’s back. The girls were just playing around. It’s popular because all three are young stars who grew up in front of our eyes, so to speak. They were all a part of  a popular kids’ gag show when they were little. They’ve also done various shows and movies. The girl who started it is Sharlene San Pedro. The next one is Miles Ocampo. That’s Kristel Fulgar at the back. I saw her YouTube post of this three years prior.

The video is still getting LIKEs once in a while so I’m putting it here. I am just not sure what was so special about my comment. The number is already big for someone like me.

(Ed. As of November 30, 2022, there are still 317 LIKES. It’s slowed down.)

Comment 2

The prank was funny. But really, I just quoted him and added a few emojis. So the fact that there are 5,461 LIKEs and still counting is mind-blowing to me. What’s more mind-blowing? The fact that there are similar comments and they, too, have many LIKEs than mine!!! Some even have so much more!

Super Freaky Pranks!

Last week, my Friday post was days earlier. And now, I’m late! Blame it on my connection. I tried. Anyway,…

It’s #FreakyFriday, folks! For this week, I thought I’d share some freakin’ scary prank videos. Now, these have made the rounds already and chances are, you’ve already seen them, anyway. Then again, I’m not really sure, am I?

Yipes!!!…Nice doggie….Please don’t eat me….

Here comes Chucky!!! (Scary and dangerous prank, really)

I’ll take the stairs, thank you very much!!!

I do need to give my opinion on these. While these may have caused the exact reactions the producers were aiming for. I have reservations about creating such pranks that, though genius and made just for laughs, may not be as harmless to the victims as we think.

We do not know everyone’s condition so I am especially concerned when pranks involve old people. We do not want any heart attacks. And what about the premises? Should you really scare and run after people who might flee in fright right smack speeding vehicles? And what about scarring a child by giving him such trauma for the rest of his life? I even remember news of a victim suing a popular show because she got the surprise of her life and she tripped–she was pregnant. Don’t know if anything happened to the baby but if it was okay, it didn’t make the prank excusable and the people behind it not liable.

What do you think?
