Ate Vi

Today is Vilma Santos’ 51st birthday. She is called Ate Vi (Vee) in the Philippines. That’s not how they say Vi here in North America. When Reggie was in 3rd or 4th grade, he got an invitation to his friend’s birthday party. When I called the boy’s mother to confirm that he was going, I asked for Vi (Vee), as indicated on the RSVP. The voice on the other line said, “Oh you meant Vi (Vye).” That was embarrassing.
