I wrote this piece many years ago and tried to submit it to Inquirer's Youngblood section. It was almost a go but when they called me and found out about my age, it didn't push through. Should have lied, right? Anyway, my former boss at an ad agency I used to work for, Barbara "Tweetums" Gonzales, decided to be charitable. She featured my article in her weekly column in a leading newspaper. Kewl, no?
