Mothers and daughters

my moms and sistar

Today I observed three different conversations between mothers and daughters. I don't know if it's a cultural thing (they were all Filipina) or on a wider scale, but each conversation had plenty of similarities:
  • There was yelling (or raised voices) numerous times during conversation.
  • Playful "You're dumb/gay/stupid/an idiot" name-calling
  • Questions about work and school (another Damn-We're-Getting-Old example)
  • Something about money
  • The obligatory "Did you eat?" from the moms.
Hmm. I wonder if we all talk like that...


I need to work on my posture when sitting down. Damn.

  1. My mom always asks me if I've eaten. I think that ones more of a cultural thing.. it's so weird.
