I thought it wouldn’t happen to me. I thought I would be the exception to the rule. But it has happened, it has finally happened: I have turned into my mother.

 

I knew the middle-aged metamorphosis had begun when I started feeling inexplicably thrilled by finding the perfect-sized container in which to store leftovers.

 

I knew the transition was terminal when I realised that I yelled: “I can’t hear you if you’re speaking to me from a different room!” at least 10 times a day.

Welcome to the real world.

And yes, I cannot hear people if they are walking away from me or wearing a mask. Mind you, I am partially deaf and I read lips.

NB Lip reading does not work in Thai.
