…I tell my mom.
“A guy or a girl?” she asks.
“A guy.” I tell her, expecting to hear a lecture.
“What? Really? Sounds interesting, tell me more…” she says, waiting eagerly for my reply.
Tell me, please, how am I supposed to react to that??!!?!??!?!
Alright, before you starting imagining all juicy details about what this is all about, let me tell you what really happened.
Since the day I taught my mom how to use the smileys (especially, the ‘kiss’ smiley) on gtalk, she sends me a good morning message everyday with a few kisses. And if I’m online and happen to notice her message, I reply back with just as much love.
Today, things took a turn…
Well, a friend and I were chatting on gtalk today when my mother pinged me with her usual message. Being the nice daughter that I am, I replied with a million kisses but only on the wrong window. And I did not even realize it. Until the friend, after taking a long pause and deep breath, said, “Did you just kiss me?”, with all awkwardness. After which, I had to explain to him that it wasn’t for him and that it was for my mother, etc.
And that’s when I told my mother I kissed someone and she got all eager to know the spicy story behind it. My mother, I tell you…her reactions are just beyond belief, at times. I’ve so much to learn from her…Only if I can be as cool as her if I ever decide to give motherhood a chance!
I love you, Amma!!!
