I watched this delightful Meg Ryan movie
If you’ve seen it, you’ll understand what comes next ……..
Kid#1 and his wife were out shopping in Delhi. Kid#2 was watching the movie with me. I was laughing my guts out at the son, a serious FBI officer who comes home to find that the obese matron that he left a couple of years back had transformed into this hot stuff who sunbathes in a bikini, and proudly says she has learnt from her mistakes. Now she does not have a relationship … she has many boyfriends. Ohhh Meg Ryan looked delicious saying that!
Me : Oh my, the son’s expression makes me laugh so much, I could pee.
Kid#2 : You know he is so restrained. If you did anything like that, the guy would not be alive.
Me : Huh! Can’t a Mom have a life?
Kid#2 : Sure she can. We never stop you from leading your life!
Me :!!!???? (Darn I never knew I needed Mr. High and Mighty’s permission. So I just decided to have some fun)
Me : Suppose I bring a boyfriend home?
Kid#2 : You know, I’d bash the daylights out of him!
Me : (Really twisting the knife now) I had Kid#1 when I was 18 and you eight years later. Now is the time I can live my life.
Kid#2 : With a nonchalant shrug – You had your chance … too bad. You’re way too old to have boyfriends
Me : So what?! Some young types love older women :D. Or may be I am already dating a nice decent budha 😉
Kid#2 : MUMMMA!!! Behave!
Hyuck Hyuck! I have a Neanderthal for a younger son!
Torturing my kids really makes my day! Happy Mother’s Day my darling sons.
Edited to add …………………
My darling Kid#2 is a great poet – apart from being a Neanderthal that is 😉
He wrote me this poem for Mother’s Day
You cradled me when I was little
Even though all I did was whine and piddle
You loved me as I grew up
Even though I shrieked and woke you up
When I was a teen and didn’t hug you
You smiled and said it didn’t bother you
When everything I did was a disaster
Never did your loving hands falter
You never tired of my insanity
Or got angry by my lack of morality
Always you were my lifeline
And my shield when I got out of line
My grades never bothered you
My teenage stupidities didn’t affect you
Your love for me lives on forever and today
So mom, I love you. Happy mothers day!!!
