Yesterday, 3.30 p.m. On the phone in the office.
Me : Hi Mom, how's things at home?
Mom: Things are OK. Feeling a little sleepy now.
Me : Is it raining heavily over there? It's raining cats and dogs here ...
Mom: Yes, same here. Pause. Later after work, who are you going out for movies with?
(I told my mom earlier in the day that I am going for movies.)
Me : I am going with CF.
(She knows CF, as he had come to visit when I was recuperating at home after the surgery.)
Mom: How come not with a girl?
Me : (rolling my eyes) Coz there's no girl I know who is still single. They are all either married or taken.
Mom: There's not even one?
Me : Really, there's none.
I suppose she still harbours hope for a daughter-in-law.
The good thing was that she didn't seem too unhappy. At least, not that I can tell. Usually she would sound visibly hurt and all upset.
So, is she finally coming around or not? It has been eight months since I came out.
I really don't know ...
