Last december at my parent’s we were watching Searching for Bobby Fischer on TV.

In the movie there’s a scene where some guys are talking about disdain and my mother, talking out lout, says to me: “that’s the word describes you the best”. My eyes went from almost closed to wide open when she said that.

I wasn’t sure she was joking or not and did not want to ask but it was awkward. Know I realize it was not the first time I heard that and it was not the last.

Interesting, but honestly, I have never cared about it.
