Realised that my memories or brain power is getting weaker these days. Have always thought of myself as pretty brilliant ( ahem, mind me.. but that's what they say, irregardless of whether they were just being nice or they were being honest).
When I was younger, it was so much easier to fetch comments such as,
"Ooh, what a smart girl!"
"Ooh, you are such a fast learner!"
"Ooh, you've got pretty satisfactory results though you are lazy. Bet you could get flying colors if you are hardworking!"
"Ooh, you are street-wise!"
"Ooh, what a good idea. Never strike me untill you mentioned so!"
Darn all the sugar-coating compliments and these days what I get are,
"Huh, can you be faster?"
"Huh, you've forgotten again?"
"Huh, you still don't understand?"
"Huh, you actually know how this work? I'm surprised."
"Huh, you want to take the IQ test? I'm just afraid that you'll be offended when you realised you got lower score than me."
It's either the alcohol killing my braincells or my parents spoilt me too much and lured me into believing I was smart.
