Mommy the Jackal

This is the conversation that took place between me and my mother when we met yesterday for a while and were driving around in her car.

Me - You know, I talked to relative A yesterday and the subject went over to you. We talked about your new job and you closing the studio and all.. But that you could never live without dance so you will probably be giving workshops as long as anyone ever asks you to.

Mom - Yeah? Ah, I guess you might be right.

Me - Anyway, as I talked about you loving your dancing, she remembered the time when relatives C and D got married. A was there with her husband B and so were you. And you unhappily told A and B that you would really like to dance the waltz but you didn't know how so A showed you the steps and B danced with you. Aaaand a few years later you and A went to dancing classes together.

Mom - Hmm.. Really? My, she sure has a good memory. But it can't be that I didn't know the steps.. I've got a feeling I was already quite a jackal back then and I actually just wanted to dance with B.

Me - *a moment of silence* Umm.. That sounded exactly like something that I would do.

Mom and A took dancing classes together when she was around seventeen. Anyway, that short little conversation was quite an eye-opener.


Love,

Passion

I love a little scandal!

So do I but they can become rather annoying so here's the good part - I have kind of managed to live a rather scandalous life without any scandals. Secrets have remained secrets (and smaller scandals behind closed doors). So scandals I love but intrigues I adore.

Hahaha, I love this and people like this. These are the kind of people I like to keep around. I love characters, especially amusing ones.

Passion Fruit said...

Yeah, I'm a character person myself, too. I especially like putting all these different characters into different situations and see how they react.

Hey what's life without a little scandal. It's fun sometimes to be a little risqué....

Sometimes life is a little scandal itself.
