Yes, sure we have grown up…I mean first adult jobs or pursing higher education what’s not adult about that? But, whilst tackling the demands of the newly entered adult world we are in all sense little kids who just want our parents to be to stop nagging and yet do very little to make that happen.
No stranger to phrases like “Kotha safa garta kati phor” and ” Aama lai pani sagaunu paryo” I mastered the art of nod and ignore, where I nod to everything being said and then blatantly ignore them. (I hold classes at my house every Friday 5 pm if you all are interested on how to do that).But, my birthday is approaching and now I am one step closer to becoming an adultier (yes, I made up this word you spellcheck/grammar nazi) adult than I am right now, it was time for a change.
Hence, here is a list of things you and I both need to fool our parents into thinking we are infact adults:
Sure, they organize your life, de- clutter and give you clear breathing space from the dump you use to call your room but it is also a fanastic way to “clean your room” without going through the painstaking process of actually doing it. Trick your parents into thinking you made an effort but what you truly did was dump all the things in respective boxes. Get them here see for yourself!
2. Yoga mat
When your mom whips out her famous “Exercise garnu chainah khali mobile ma” line tactfully drift to your yoga mat, breathe in and drown the nagging out. I have gotten away with a lot with the “I exercised today ” card, a light 30 minutes of yoga for a day can be your excuse to be glued to your phone for the rest of the day ! Get your Ommmmm on here.
3. Sandwich and Grill maker
Food solves everything and how much can a nagging persist when you flaunt fresh and might I add quickly made sandwiches in front of your parents face? Not for long. With less hangry moments and more food around altercations are bound to be reduced. Sandwich instead of sass and you can get it easily here.
4. Water bottle
In a Nepali household water holds the holiest place above all; water cleans and heals. If you are heading to your family with a complain of a splitting headache they will infact point out that it was because of that one day you did not “drink enough water”. Now by using your brand new water bottle show that you care about your body but more importantly do it so that you don’t have to hear that line again. Get hydrated by getting your water bottle here, I heard it actually matters.
5. Buy them something nice
All jokes aside no one in the world will care and love you more than your parents. Therefore, the best way to show them that you are an adult is take in all their constructive suggestions and give them something nice to thank them for putting up with you.
