Me: happy fathers day daddy.
Dad: thank you ma*!
Me: despite the fact that the patriarchy always wins and every day is pretty much father’s day in our house and it’s not like you do stuff on Mothers day or even know when daughters day** is.
Dad: ha ha thank you ma. Will you bake me a cake when you come here ma?
#fathersday. Also known as another #selectivehearingday.
* The south Indian ‘ma’ – a catch-all suffix for any female irrespective of age or actual relation, used to convey affection, exasperation or respect.
Not the Hindi nirupa-roy-mere-bete-mujhe-bachayenge-hai-main-andhi-ho-gayi ‘ma’.
