Tomorrow one of my friends is coming for lunch. The weather might actually be good. We might have lunch in the garden. Or barbecue.
But I don't want to include Okaasan.
Does this make me a bad person?
I just want to get her fed in the kitchen as usual. Then she can fiddle around until it is time to go out to hula dancing.
I just want to sit outside with my friend and her son and Yujiro and relax....
That's one of the troubles of this joint-living arrangement - do you really need to include everyone in all that happens in the building? I think not. I foresee a little protest from Yujiro along the lines of: Oh, but Okaasan will enjoy meeting them!
But it's MY party and I ain't having it.
