This weekend

Mum will be all,
so, how’s your new job?
and I will be all teenage-shrug,
I’ve only been doing it for one day.
I don’t know.
Stop asking me questions.
Leave me alone.
You’re not my parents!
It’s so unfair.

  1. "I hate you!"
    I’m approaching 34, and still feel like I’m 14 when my mum starts off on one of her inquisitions. But then I think it is the responsibility of a parent to act like that when they have the opportunity.

  2. I hit 30 and I’m still spending a lott of time hiding my tatt from my folks. Cause really even though I’m 30, it would go down like a ton of bricks.

  3. don’t get me started – I think I am perpetually 14 in the eyes of my mother. Everything I like or do is ‘just a pahse – it will pass’.

  4. Still, it’s nice to know that something can make us feel 20 years younger.

  5. Thanks for that pinpoint-accurate review of my life last Saturday (well, except that the question about what my new job was like was replaced by repeated scatter-shot questioning over what I was going to do with my life if I was made redundant).

  6. i’m sorry – adrian, just how long have you been hiding your tattoo from your parents for??

  7. Hmm. The boot is now on my children’s foot. As it were. I indulge all my father’s questioning with great tolerance and understanding now. I hope my children do the same for me if they ever have children, because at the moment all I get to any question is “fine” plus teenage shrug. And they’re 5 & 10, dammit.
