Everyone thinks I’m stupid.
Maybe I am.
I try to cover it up with wisecracks and goofing around. But that just makes it worse.
Maybe if I was deadly serious all the time. Like Masami.
Maybe if I could just focus on my work and tune everyone else out like she does. Then people might respect me. Maybe I’d get better assignments. Maybe I’d get a raise.
