Writer Butch Dalisay may have accomplished a lot of things throughout his storied career, but there’s one profession he never thought he’d be in: teaching dance.

In what could be seen as a Throwback Thursday post, Dalisay posted on December 21 part of his registration form with the Bureau of Internal Revenue dating back to 2003.

Dalisay tweeted: “I registered with the BIR in 2003 so I could issue official receipts as a professional writer and editor—but the BIR had no category for such professionals, so guess where they put me under…”

The photo showed the BIR indicated Dalisay’s line of business as “other entertainment activities, dance instruction.”

Perhaps Dalisay couldn’t be more amused at the category he was put in, considering he is an English and Creative Writing professor at the University of the Philippines Diliman.

The acclaimed writer, who is a hall of famer of the Palanca Awards, is also UP’s Vice President for Public Affairs.
