Pabili ng Saging (Can I Buy a Banana?)

The store is proving to be quite interesting. Yesterday, we did very well and I actually had fun sitting out there. This morning, I overheard Jerry talking to a little kid.

Kid: Pabili po ng saging.

Jer: Sardines?

Kid: Yun pong mataba.

Jer: Saba? Yeah we have it.

I was not really paying attention as I was writing. A few minutes later I heard the kid's voice again and then Jer started yelling "Noe! Can you come out here, please?"

Me: Ano yun?

Kid: Hindi po ito. Meron po kayong saging? Yung mataba, saba.

Ahh...he was talking about bananas, the fat (taba in Tagalog) kind called saba. Unfortunately, all we have in stock are some canned sardines, the brand name of which is Saba...
