Last night when coming back from the supermarket with my wife, we passed by the hair saloon with no customers but some children and elders in it, so I decided to get it to trim my hair.

In there we noticed they were preparing to have dinner but the barber insisted to do the service for me, my wife sat behind me just watching and waiting to finish my hair cut but one after one, the children started to walk and play around me, staring on me, smiling trying to talk to me, suddenly the elders and some other adults started to staring on me, talking about me and I started to feel uncomfortable but holding my discomfort. By the mirror I saw my wife laughing because i was the center of the attention. Usually when people talk about me (as a foreigner) staring on me, I just keep walking and not any problem at all but last night was different, I was stucked in that chair, people talking and staring about me and holding my discomfort, plus, my wife noticed me, she still laughing like enjoying a free show.

At the end the barber invited us to eat with them, we refused because we just had dinner but I accepted politely the beer (after the guy insisting a lot). The barber knows me well because I use his service for long time, the point was his whole family members never saw me before and as they said , they never saw a foreigner in their saloon.

Outside going home my wife teasing me saying I looked like a oger where everybody has to watch and I replied her ¨I was the monster for them¨ and we laughed a lot.

Denial, according the psychoanalysts, is one of the most primary mechanisms of defense. It consists in the attitude of denying or minimizing obvious facts of reality with which the individual can´t  cope or whose irresponsibility is unable to meet.

And I agree.

Since we go anonymously here, I don't mind sharing the most embarrassing, stupid and awkward thing that I've done:

Years ago, when I was playing a computer game in a hot summer day, I had a cold drink at the foot of my table. After I finished it up, I pissed in the bottle, put it back and returned to my game, as I was too lazy to go to the bathroom. then a minute or two later, habitually, I picked up the bottle and took a sip.
I was appalled with the warmth of it. I spewed it out of my mouth in a millisecond
Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid.
