I have had those days for the last two weeks. I have been trying to keep it together.. stay tough. But sometimes, i just want to bloody scream my head off and cry like a pathetic banshee.
And you know what's worst?
When you're mistaken for a homosexual!
Those are one of the curses of being tall.
I have had that for years when people would stare at me in awe.. They'd think, "Man! She's tall! She's really tall!" (Never mind the comment: Dakulaon talaga ano?)
I'm bloody 5'8" Not the freaking Eiffel Tower! Goddamned it!
But there they are amazed, and then the next thought would follow, "Perhaps, she's a man.. She's GAY!" Geeze!!!
One night, I was walking while the rain was pouring down, and i had my umbrella pretty close to my face, and i heard someone commented, "Garo man lang talaga babae ano?!"
If that doesn't beat all! Imagine?! Being thought of as a man looking quite like a real woman!
Didn't it occured to him that I was genuine?!
Hell no! It's the freakin' height, i tell you! It's always the bloody freakin' height!!!
Why are you laughing?
