Suddenly Seeing Susan

, , , | Related | March 7, 2012

(My grandma, aunt, and I are sat in the living room after Christmas lunch. My grandma’s napping, and my aunt and I are reading books we received as Christmas presents. I look up as my mum walks in with a slightly mischievous smile on her face. I watch as she sits down next to her sister, back straight, hands on her lap, and starts staring at her. My aunt looks up at her, then back to her book, but her concentration has obviously been broken.)

Aunt: “Susan.”

Mum: *brightly* “Yes?”

Aunt: “You know what.”

(My aunt shuffles slightly further down the sofa. My mum shuffles along with her and keeps staring.)

Aunt: “Sue, stop it.”

Mum: “I’m just sitting here.”

Aunt: “Muuum!”

(My grandma opens her eyes.)

Grandma: “Yes, dear?”

Aunt: “She’s doing it again!”

Grandma: *sighs* “Didn’t you outgrow that, Susan?”

(This is, and has been, my Mum’s favourite way of annoying her sister since she was eight. She’s 52 now.)
