If there’s something my nephew knows about me at a very young age, that would definitely be my uniqueness. He knew from the start that his Yaya is gay. Which brings me to last nights conversation, when my brother started pestering Nicho.
Bro: Nicho, don’t hang out with your Yaya too much. You may end up bading!
Nicho: No, Tito Mark. I’m not going to be bading, I’m a boy! (slightly raising his voice)
Nell: Hoy Chiquito! Tigilan mo na yan… (that’s what I call my bro ever since)
Bro: I’m just saying, he might turn out gay if he’s around you all the time!
Nell: Ay gonggong ka pala eh! Kong nakakahawa ang kabaklaan eh di sana bakla ka na rin ngayon. Eh sino bang nagpalaki sayo? Eh diba ako!
Bro: Fine, fine! (then scratching his head)
Nicho: Hahaha! Tito Mark’s bading, Tito Mark’s bading!
Nicho and I couldn’t stop laughing, and my brother decided to just leave the house and smoke his defeat outside. Like my nephew would say, nobody beats my Yaya! Hahahah…
