Why you should keep in mind your mom reads your blog when posting

Ami: I read your blog. It says you are feeling bad.
Aisha: yeah, its okay, I’m fine.
Ami: I saw the picture, beta*.The boy, he fell. On the door. With his books.
Aisha: no no! its a Far Side comic. Its a school for the gifted and the gifted boy is pushing on a door he’s supposed to pull.
Ami: Well… I’m still concerned.

Note to self: don’t scare mother with blog.

*beta as in urdu word for child. Not beta as in second letter of Greek Alphabet or mathematical measure of the sensitivity of rates of return on a portfolio. Seriously.

  2. I’m so glad my mom is computer illiterate. If my mom ever knew I was writing posts called “Pamela Anderson Stars in Attack of the Nips” she would wonder what she did wrong raising me.

  4. LOL! that’s hilarious, Aisha! One day my mom came into my room and noticed Nietzsche’s book “The Gay Science,” on my bookshelf (which as you might know is not about homosexuality but about the “happy” wisdom as Nietzsche liked to call it) and said ” Haye Allah, you have started to read books about lesbians?! Don’t let your father see this!”

  7. ๐Ÿ™‚ That is so like my Mom! She never sees the “bigger picture” of what I am trying to say. She just hones in on the part that says her child is hurt, sad, sick or in danger and constructs the worst thoughts possible. Arggh! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Umm, hehe. I thought you would be called a “beti” because you are female. Am I wrong? I think you’re mom is just concerned in general and just picked a topic to be concerned about. In this case it was the far side comic. Haha, It is sweet.

  13. Oh wait she is talking about your what you said actually in the blog. She is so concerned for you. I still think you are accident prone because if you get into an accident you have something to worry about besides the usual studying/job hunting.
