Y: Yummy

April 29, 2016

One of the times my Mom was over at our place for a few days, she taught A to respond with ‘Yummy’ when she asked ‘How’s it?’ with reference to whatever she was eating at mealtimes. Now, I didn’t consciously reinforce it since it feels like fishing for a compliment, but hey there were the odd days when I would feel like one, so I’d ask her and she would unfailingly oblige me. (How do somethings stick in their minds for life, but other things, despite numerous repetition, refuse to leave an impression?)

So the other day, I was trying on a new skirt that I had bought, and asked her, ‘Ammu, how’s it?’

Pat came the answer, ‘Yummy!’
