I was at the bank yesterday, depositing my fricking (few) money I saved and to send money to my grandmother who's in Capiz. So after going to BPI, I just walked on the way to PNB since it's just a short walk. I was wearing a loose shirt and a knee-length cargo shorts and my tsinelas na pambahay. It was a decent outfit anyway and very comfy when you're gonna go bank hopping. When suddenly:
"Miss, tomboy ka ba?", sabi ng isang tambay.
Taena, I want to roll on the floor, lauging my ass off. Who, me? Are you seriously talking to me? Well, I can't blame the guy because I don't walk like a girl, like, I don't do hip swaggering.
To begin with, I was not at all offended because it's not the first time that I have been mistaken for as a t-bird. I'm used to it. My relatives thought that I was one even when I was a child because I don't play girly games and I usually hang out with boys. That's the stigma, when you're not all "mahinhin" and hang out with boys, you're officially a tomboy.
Ngek! That's not my fault if I'm not what they want me to be. My girly side just doesn't show all the time, you know. That's why people get surprised when I get all dolled up, when I wear a skirt and when they see me fangirling...like in the photo where I'm ogling on Enchong Dee. Haha!
That's just me. Deal with it. Learn it. Live it. Love it.
