Big Mother Is Watching

Written By bryanboy

God I love my mom. It’s been quite awhile since I last talked to her on Skype. Without any doubt, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Sometimes, a conversation with her like having a conversation with myself.

“You’ve lost weight.”

“You’re not tanned anymore!”

“I’m now following you on Instagram because you never call and it’s the best way to know what you’re doing… but I like Rumi’s photos than yours!”

Me: “Who else are you following?”
Mom: “Your beautiful friend Rumi”
Me: “Who else?”
Mom: “Martha Stewart.”

It was all fun and good until she said ‘you look thin on THAT image of you with the vacuum cleaner”.


Great. Just great. Bless the soul of a mother who saw a picture of his grown-up son in black briefs, corset, laced Minnie Mouse ears and a vacuum cleaner on the internet.

I miss my family so much.

Many of you have asked what my Thanksgiving plans are. I’m not American and Thanksgiving is still a very foreign concept to me. Last year, I celebrated Thanksgiving by myself in a hotel room in Tribeca over take-away Indian food. I still don’t know what I’m gonna do tomorrow. A few of you invited me to join your festivities but I think I’m gonna celebrate it by cocooning in my apartment.

No matter where you are in the world, I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving. Travel safe, eat healthy and don’t forget to be merry.
