When You Have An Asian Mother

In case you didn’t know I am half Japanese. My mom is from Japan, and although she doesn’t think so she has an accent, but it makes everything ten times better.

It starts to get funny when I can hear my mom’s accent come out through text messages. For example, the other night my mom texted me a picture of our cat with evil looking eyes. She continued to go on and explain to me how the cat escaped, so I suggested that maybe the cat is not happy with life. My mom thought that was a ridiculous statement. She then went on to tell me what happened. If you are friends with my on Facebook then you already know the story, but if not here is what my mom texted me word for word. I changed nothing about this text. This is 100% my mom.

“Hey you must be boring since you don’t live with me. So I give you a story. Mikan did a great escape last night. After I went to bed he got up on kitchen counter and tore screen. I left window open about 5-6 inches. And he got through the opening and went to patio, I think. I don’t think he fell to the ground. Anyways, he usually come to my bed in the morning and greet me but this morning he didn’t. But I didn’t think anything of it. Then I went to kitchen and saw screen was torn. First I thought maybe stray cat tore the screen and came inside. But then I heard meaw from outside. I thought “is that Mikan? Nah” but I didn’t see Mikan anywhere so I opened sliding door a little and looked outside, he was there in a corner curled up. I went out and tried to pick him up, but he meawed so loud and ran away form me but not too far so I opened door wider and told him to go in then he went in. but he was meawing so loud for a while. Maybe he had a scary experience last night. I hope he had his lesson! (ghost emoji, eggplant emoji, grin emoji)”

Mikan is our cat who decided to escape. That’s my mom for you. If you think I’m funny you mine as well just thank my mom for my comedy, because all my jokes are based off her. I’m not laughing at her I’m laughing with her…. literally my mom laughs at her own jokes. Gotta love my mom.
