Ricky remembers Filipino fraternities like Tau Gamma, SRB, and Akhro.
Ricky remembers that Donald Duck cartoon where he dreams of being married to Daisy Duck and it turns out to be a nightmare. I remember, as a little boy, of being scared at Daisy Duck’s appearance when the both of them had settled in to domestic life where she was wearing a bathrobe and hair curlers. She had tired and baggy eyes and was smoking a cigarette while pouring herself a cup of coffee in the kitchen. Scary!
