Things My Parents Say

Like all long-married couples, my parents too have millions of complaints against each other. My favourite one remains my parents most scornful dismissal of each other, when they are mad with each other and often, as if its a fresh insight into their 33 years-ago-married spouse, "Beta! I hate to say this, but your father/ mother has essentially a FEUDAL attitude!"

Isn't this the sort of post that usually brings out 30-something borgeoiuse women by the dozens, getting all verklept about the touching things their parents have said to each other over the years ?

Where's the love people ? WHERE'S THE LOVE ?

My parents celebrated being married 20 years by.. getting divorced.

But My grandparents used to grit their teeth at each other when they would fight and trade barbs (ever so politely) until one or the other would say "Well, I'm sure YOU'RE right." And that would effectively end the fight.

And make us kids laugh our asses off.
