I am such a hypocrite.
This morning I went to my son’s school to meet with his teacher. Aside from finding out how he was doing in school, I mentioned to Mrs. P that Ten was complaining about how some big kids were mean to him at the school’s waiting area.
But during our conversation, Mrs. P mentioned she knew me from when we were young. And when she mentioned we rode the school bus together, a frisson of alarm shot through me. I suddenly remembered how my best friend and I would tease the younger kids and made some of them cry.
Try as I might, I couldn’t really remember her. I finally had to ask her,”Pinaiyak ba kita?”
Mrs. P smiled and assured me I was nice to her. But I’m not sure if she was telling the truth or was just being polite.
I never thought I’d find myself in this situation….
Talk about the past coming back to bite me. 🙁
