Eight ways to irritate mom

1. Wake up late, preferably after the water supply has stopped. Take a long bath and finish up most of stored water.

2. Complain about the lack of hot running water for bath.

3. Use yellow mug with red bucket.

4. Sit around while she watches saas-bahu serials and complain about how lousy they are and how she needs to stop watching them.

5. Walk around aimlessly while your mom is busy taking care of household chores. Offer to help but don't budge until the work has been done. Then say, "Arre, i was just going to get to it!". ahahahahahaha (laugh is optional, entails small risk to life)

6. Complain about feeling hungry even as food is being served.

7. Make expert comments on the food she has cooked.

8. Spend hours at the computer or phone.

Of all the things I have enjoyed at home after a long time, nothing beats a proper full-fledged scolding from my mom. Ahahahaha! how these ears have craved for it. :D

hahaha - too cute - right on, TGFI, you don't feel like you are home, until you get that scolding for all the things you have listed! Usually takes a 2+ week trip to get to that stage - I so wanna go home! :(

congrats! :)

:) did you show her yet?

:) partners in crime we are.

Does the PhD help in doing all this? :D
hahaha! if you're asking if it has contributed to more frustration in me and hence a larger desire to irritate my mom, may be yes. If you're asking if it helps get away with irritating my mom, the answer is NO. :( :)

awww! sorry didn't mean to start this homesickness wave here. :p

:) omg. my mom would only write embarrassing stories about me i imagine!

p.s: bure nazar waale tera muh kaala.
p.p.s: *spitting on my blog to keep out the nazar*
