I've grown up as a Momma's boy. During my teenage years, my mom was always protective about me, and always telling me what to do and what not to do. But I never complained. I kinda liked the attention and the thought that someone cared so much about me.
Today, I'm in my early thirties. I became a Father of a handsome lil boy this November. But I realise that I'm still Momma's boy (or so she thinks). She still says things to me that she would when I was a teenager. Some of these things are really embarassing, especially when said in public.
The following are some things that, although some bystanders might go "aww" listening to, moms should NEVER EVER say to their grown-up 'kids' in public:-
- In front of a guest whom you've already greeted - "Did you say hello to Uncle?"
- Before you sit down for breakfast - "Did you brush your teeth?"
- When you're sitting among friends in a casual setting - "Comb your hair"
- At dinner time during a wedding reception - "ENOUGH!!! Don't eat more! You'll become more fat."
- At a New Years' party, in front of a friend of hers - "Did you wish Aunty Happy New Year?"
- At lunch with relatives - "Wash your hands before eating."
- While you're talking to your bachelor friend on the phone, she might exclaim in a not-so-discreet tone - "Is that Rohan on the line? Why isn't he getting married??"
- When you're struggling with a runny nose at a get-together - "Don't sniff like that! Go blow your nose!"
- Anywhere there's half the human race gathered - "Come ___________!" (fill in the blanks with the most embarassing pet-name that your mom calls you by.
Has anyone been through worse? Awaiting your comments. Maybe it'll make me feel better :p
