Me: ang panget ng letters mo
Ma: Meron akong word, di nyo to alam: SUQ
Me: Alam namin yan, market yan sa Marrakesh
Kerwin: Oo nga, nasa Hardy Boys yun

Me: Mali ka, SUKH ung alternate spelling.
Kerwin: Check natin sa Hardy Boys. (Naghukay sa bookshelf, hinanap ang “The Mysterious Caravan”)
Kerwin: O kitam, tama ako e!
