Teaser Tuesdays - Balikbayan

After the party she had a heart-to-heart with Billy: he shouldn't go around telling other kids he had seen a flying saucer in America and had talked with its little green passengers.
"But, mom," protested Billy, "you're always telling me to use my imagination!"

(page 73, Balikbayan - Gotita de Dragon and Other Stories by Nick Joaquin)


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following: - Grab your current read - Open to a random page - Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) - Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
