Eating a hotdog is art.

Eating a hotdog in a bun has proved to be extremely difficult to eat for me since I was a teeny weeny girl. I always spilled the sauce a bit. Contents would be all over the table by the time I finish. So after a couple more of tries, I gave up.

 

Fast forward to 10 years later, I found myself ordering a hotdog. I knew it was going to be a challenge. And when the food arrived, I could only stare at it.

Seeing my friends eat, I knew I had to take a bite. I opened my mouth as wide as it can go. With that first bite, I already knew I looked ridiculous. So I went on with my lack of care of etiquette. With the last bite, I just stuffed the remaining parts in my mouth. I never realized there was still so much. I wasn’t able to talk for a minute. My friends stared at me and I just shrugged my shoulders.

Hotdogs taste extremely well but prove to be more challenging than your regular burger. After that episode, I realized I just had to train myself more to get the perfect result of looking like a normal person when I eat hotdog in a bun. Hopefully.

My mom has foreseen the future.

I never thought my mom actually saw me as a kid who would probably never end up with someone. I thought I was the only one in the household who thought that. Kids in my school would most likely agree with me, but they’re a different story. My mom is… my mom. 

But again, she is my mom and I tell her a LOT of things. She has caught up on the fact that guys don’t   knock on my door and confess their complete undying infatuation to me. She must have understood during prom, when no one asked me to dance. Moms know things in a way that I can’t comprehend. Like a boss. 

We had our normal uneventful supper. As I was busy imagining scenarios that included my biases, my mom decided to start a conversation with a topic that came completely out of the blue.

Mom: Do you have plans of marrying after school?

Me: Ummm… yes? I don’t even have a boyfriend yet! 

Mom: Oh… good. Me and your dad want another chance at raising children. So a grandchild or two would be nice.

Me: Huh?

Mom: Anyways, if you can’t find anyone in the future, I’ll look for you. I’ll set you up.

Me: Thanks…. o.O

I’ve gotta appreciate my mom for boosting up my self-confidence there. Thanks mommy!

Do moms do these kinds of things a lot? 

Just a bunch of confusing questions.

1. To people who don’t want to seem cliche, is it not cliche to not want to be cliche since a lot of people don’t wanna be cliche?

2.  What do you get when you post a picture of your injured body on Facebook?

3. Who invented corruption?

4. Where are all the selfless and wise people of the world? Why are they not part of the government?

5. Why can’t the world stop seeing everything as debt and just give?

6. Why do we say we know the right thing to do when obviously we don’t because the world is still screwed right now?

7. What makes us so sane and others so crazy? What is the hallucinations are real and we’re the blind ones?

8. What can we have done to prevent the meltdown of Mother Earth?

9. Why does the news only show news about the corrupt officials of our government? Aren’t there more interesting and worthwhile news anymore?

10. Why is there no food in the fridge?
