Meet The Parents

My two week study break is coming up and I cannot be more happier. But then comes the question of whether or not I am going home during the break. Then I met up with my mom online:

(On MSN)
Mum: When are you coming home to KL?
Ben: I don't know whether I wanna come back during the study break.
Mum: Why not?!
Ben: I did badly in my first tests. I gotta study hard to score in the finals.
Mum: At least come back for a week..
Ben: But I've got 6 subjects to study.
Mum: Hmm, it's been a while since you've had good food, right?
Ben: Mum, I..
Mum: Veal chop marinated overnight in a savory blend of pepper vinegar, garlic and onions. Broiled and served sizzling with hot sweet peppers.
Ben: What was that?
Mum: No, I'm just trying out this new recipe book. Oven roasted free-range double chicken breast stuffed with garlic herb cheese and served with lemon butter.
Ben: You know what? It has been a while since I've had western food.
Mum: Marinated Portobello mushrooms on our garlic mashed potatoes, with grilled asparagus, broccoli, tomatoes and sizzling lemon butter.
Ben: I think I'll be able to make it back this break.
Mum: Good. Wait, your dad wants to talk to you.

(...)

Dad: Hey, you better score 3.7 and above this semester.
Ben: I don't think I'll be able to do that seeing as I..
Dad: Well then, I also don't think I'll be able to bank in the right amount of money into your account once every two months.
Ben: You mean once every month.
Dad: No. Once every TWO months.
Ben: I'll see what I can do.
Dad: That's better.

(...)

Mum: So when are you coming back?
Ben: I can't. I gotta study extra hard now.
Mum: Seared rare tuna topped with Colossal lump crabmeat and served sizzling with red pepper pesto.
Ben: I.. I.. I..


Leave it to the parents to threaten their child with food and money.
