Lost in translation

At the dinner table:

Dad: I liked that girl on your Facebook. Cool barong. Filipinos entering the mainstream, dude!
Me: Pa, that wasn’t really the point…
Mom: I want to see!

*We show her the post*

Mom, concerned: Ha? What’s cultural appropriation?
Dad: Barongs. Appropriate sa black tie. They liked mine at the gala we went to for your school.
