Wedding Postponed due to PLUNDER
His Ninong Erap's gift?
He paid for the whole wedding reception party,
dinner, drinks, and all.
I coerced then-Vice President Joseph Estrada
to agree to be the Ninong during my own wedding,
and he had no choice, actually;
a long time ago,
Erap had promised his good friend,
Atty. Eddie Enriquez, my father,
that he would "sponsor" the weddings of my dad's sons.
It's a long story,
but suffice to say, my dear old dad
was there with Erap right at the genesis
of his political career,
his first campaign for Mayor of San Juan.
Their subsequent all-nighter 'til 6am
Scotch sessions are still the stuff of legend
here on Oroquieta Street.
The impeached President,
for all his supposed sins,
is nothing if not loyal to his old friends.
Flash-forward to 2001,
President Estrada gets kicked out of Malacanang,
and today, six years later,
he's sentenced to Reclusion Perpetua.
I'm still single.
I've been waiting for Ninong Erap to confirm
his presence at my big fat postponed wedding.
maybe proxy na lang si Jinggoy!
