Like Parents, Like Daughter

Continuing a discussing with sister about something we talked about a day ago –

Sis: I am still not sure I want to do it.

Me: Well, I think you should. You aren’t going to lose anything; and oh, it might just make Amma happy.

Sis: What? Amma knows? I told you I am still only thinking about it…why did you have to go and tell her already?

Me: I don’t know…

(wondering where I get this from…why I feel the urge to tell Amma everything)

15 minutes later –

Sis: I am talking to Amma now. She started to tell me something about your plans and she stopped once she sensed I didn’t know about it. What was she gonna tell me?

Me: this and that, blah blah…I didn’t tell you because I didn’t know for sure yet.

Sis: Aahhh, see, it runs in the family. You get it from her – Amma can’t keep anything from us and you can’t keep anything from her. Like mother, like daughter – blabbermouths.


A new day, a new episode…me calling Amma –

Amma: Hello

Me: Ammmiiiii! Why did that ‘hello’ sound extra sweet? Who did you think was calling?

Amma: You of course, my dear. All that sweetness only for you.

Me: No, don’t lie. It sounded so different than the regular hellos I get from you. Tell me, whose call were you expecting?

Amma: Nobody calls me at this time but you.

Me: Nope. I doubt that. I think you were waiting for a call from your secret lover and you thought this was it. Right?

Amma: Oh my, like father, like daughter. You have his twisted sense of humor.

Me: But of course.

Amma: What have I gotten myself into!


So the verdict is out – I am like my parents. A perfect blend of both, as I see it.

  11. #15 by Psych Babbler on February 10, 2011 - 4:40 pm

    Lol! That’s funny… :D

    I get that urge to tell mum most things too…was more so when I was still living at home. I still remember the first time I got drunk in Goa with friends, I warned my sis not to tell mum anything and she promised. And the next thing, I tell mum myself! :P

    At least your case isn’t like in Friends…where Rachel tries so hard not to be her mum she turns out like her dad…I think weirdly, I turned out to be more like my dad than my mum even though while growing up I was a lot like her. Now I just have her anxiety :P

    you sound like my sister :D she will tell me things…ask me not to tell Amma and then the next day amma will narrate the story to me :P
