MUM: Being wife is hard work. Cook, clean, take care of husband, make him happy, too much work! Big job!
ME: It's not that bad.
MUM: Michael work you hard?
ME: Mom, I'm not a slave.
[Mom thinks for a bit. She looks excited. Uh oh.]
MUM: You know how to keep husband right?
ME: ... Please share. I'd love to know. [Of course, I did not say this to her.]
MUM: You have baby or he throw you away and find new wife!
ME: How did I not see this coming?
