5: Things I can always count on when I come home
A day late, but here it is!
01 | A limitless supply of holiday themed pajama suits. Thanks, Mom!
02 | My dad deciding he needs to take a shower in the other bathroom 2 minutes after I’ve start taking my shower, thus using all of the hot water. You think I’m joking, but I’m not. No matter what time of day, he’ll come plodding up the stairs takin’ my hot water like a fiend. Like a fiend! I confronted him about this and he said “We have a lot of things in common.”
03 | My grandma calling me fat. It’s just standard practice at this point.
04 | A lot of food :D. M-Train is a non-stop cooking machine. And it’s not just because of the holidays. She only has to feel my presence near and she is like “Are you hungry? Do you want pho?” Yes, it often turns out, I do want pho. How did you know?
05 | TV-watching. I think many people are disappointed when they meet me and find they can’t bond over favorite shows because I don’t watch TV. But when I’m home I usually find that I’m more couch-potato-esque and usually end up watching banal reality TV with my mom. Or, if I have control over the remote, a combination of cartoons and the Discovery Channel. Sometimes it is nice to glaze over into the other side.
5.5 | A confirmation that moving away was the right decision.
