I Tell You, Those Ammammas...
Sister: I wish Amma would stop calling me "kunju" in front of my friends. It's embarrassing.
Sister: You do know what it means right?
Me: It's a term of endearment.
Sister (with lots of teenage attitude): Like, in Sri Lanka. Do you know what it means here?
Excuse me while my entire childhood flashes, corrupted, before my eyes. I'm finding this, erm, a little hard to swallow. The Malayalis do it our way too, right? Right?
