My mom told her co-worker that he had ears “exactly like Buddha.” And I was like, What? You mean, meaty and hearty like a steak? And she said, Yes — and I said, Ma, you can’t go around saying stuff like that to people! And she said, Too bad. This is the way I am. It’s too late. And I said, Did he get mad? And she said, Oh no, I told him it was a compliment, that he would be a king if he lived in Buddha’s time. And he said, Everyone in India has ears like these.
Hmmm. Also, my mom doesn’t like when I blog about her. She says there’s no need to make her humiliation so public…but I don’t think I can stop.
