Amma :- Listen carefully. There would be many people coming. They will keep asking you so many questions. Be careful while you answer.
Me: OK ma
Amma:- Some people are just nosey. Don’t blabber everything.
Me: Seri ma.
Amma: You are young kanna. You don’t know these people. I only have to teach you all these.
Me: Seri ma.. Understandinggggg, old kannaaa *giggling*
Amma: Ayyo, you are too naive. Not all people are good. Be polite but at the same time be firm.
Me: 🙄 ok ok ok
Amma: Think twice before saying anything.
Conversation continues for 10 more minutes and we talk about all other useless stuff. Later..
Amma: ok da..I want to tell this aunt x about xyz. I want to put my message strongly but at the same time I don’t want to be rude. <Amma tells me whatever she has prepared to tell aunt x> – does this sound ok?
Me : 🙄 🙄 🙄 *I edit Amma’s dialogue little bit and tell her *
Amma: Sounds better. OK take care and REMEMBER my advice .
Sometimes I feel that she is too innocent and somehow I have to protect her. God Bless her.
** Advice for whom?
