I’ve often told myself that my mother’s little quirks and antics are mostly an Asian mother-thing, but apparently not. Check out this Shouts and Murmurs piece by The New Yorker’s Jesse Eisenberg.
Here is a good paragraph to give you an idea of whats happening:
“Can you pay attention for a second? Your fidgeting is distracting me. I understand you’re impatient. I’ve been impatient, too. Like when I was impatient for thirty-six hours while you took your sweet time ambling down my birth canal. That wasn’t exactly fun for me, either. It felt like I was trying to shit out a watermelon. Had I known about the size of your head, I would’ve gotten a Caesarean. Hindsight, right?”
Oh Mrs. Eisenberg!
