As I have start to move a bit further on scale of my age( and Weight too 😉 ) , the behavior/habits I have laughed about my grandmother and father , those traits have started to surface in my behavior too , two of the things I have started doing which accredit to these culprit genes :
My father and my grandmother(his mother), always call the person they are talking to with the name of person who is not present there at that moment! We always have to correct them, My father sometimes calls me Nadira which is the name of his youngest sister and when he is with her, He often calls her Sana (my name) .It is the same with my grandmother, she always calls me with name of my cousin who is not present there 🙂 It is funny and irritating at same time! Well I did the same thing to one of my colleague during lunch time this week, twice and he reminded me , it’s not his name 😀 I felt the attack of those mean genes first time! Gosh Not ME !!
The second behavior: my father is always talking of something he felt bad about or been angry about for long time .Everyday you talk to him, he will repeat it to you and you always have to remind him,” forget it Daddy, it’s over!!” but he remains so emotional and angry about it for days until something worse happens and he talks about the later one then. I am doing the same thing from past one week, every time at dinner table I discuss the same thing I was angry about ,to my husband and he tells me the same thing, “Forget about it dear!! You don’t have to take everything to your heart!! ”
I told him, don’t worry it’s not me, it’s the Mean Genes once again !!
Though miles apart, how we behave like our parents or grandparents , it’s incredible!! How we sit like them, walk like them, make same faces!! Its simply amazing!
I could only remember the meaning of a verse of Quran ‘ To which of the favors of your Lord, Will you deny’ , and my heart replies ‘None my King ,none!! ‘
