They were not used to seeing me with curls or curly locks. I could not blame J* for exclaiming “Ano nakain mo???” and for being reminded of the late Medusa, the alias we gave to one of those grumpy co-employees. I could forgive her for that. She was shocked, I realized.
There were sincere and insincere comments about the new look. One of them, who is a tupperware from Day 1, uttered these words, “Tita (and she is older than me, btw), parang sinauna (looks like it’s from the past, and i bet she’s pertaining to the hair).
