When I was young, our helper often called me "aanga-anga." She'd say "magaling sa eskwela pero tanga naman." There was a version of me who derided "slow" people. But I know now that it was a coping mechanism because I'm on the dim side. And I own that in a resigned, so-what, I'm-not-hurting-anyone way. I try. My God, I try. And the people who understand, I love them the most. Just, today I feel quite defeated. Anyway. Moving on!
