Who's My Daddy?
I exited the metro and chose to go home to my parents in Cavite last Friday due to the political tension that arose last Friday on Ayala Avenue (just about 5 1/2 cartwheels away from the office).
I enjoyed the weekend despite being bothered by what can actually happen to the country, to the business, and to my friends who work in the media. I was able to spend two days with my baby brother. I was able to watch TV and saw my official cosmopolitan beef who is now endorsing a multivitamin.
And last night, I had a short conversation with my mom:
ME: Mom, I just realized that despite the resemblance, Sydney (my sister) and I look differently.
MOM: Each of you (siblings) looks differently.
ME: (*discerning the truth*, without any pause) Who's my father?
MOM: (*plays along*) I don't exactly remember.
I wonder how many times a week my parents think of what they've done wrong in bringing me up.
