Why I don't usually call my granma

"Everyone else your age is married. What are you planning to do? Don't you want to get married? Why are you avoiding it like this? I only want to see you happy. When will you get married? Everyone keeps asking me why you are not married. What am I supposed to say? Why do you make me weep like this? Have you not hurt me enough? Why are you punishing me like this? I'm not well, but still I keep going to all the temples and pray to God to make you see reason and get married. Why are my prayers not working? Why don't you stop being so stubborn? I'm not even asking you to get married to someone of my choice. You can choose whoever you want, as long as everyone else in the family will be happy with him. (hah! of course!) Choose someone who will be accepted by our family. The choice is yours. (right!) Why are you not saying anything? When will you get married? huh? "

Umm... can I call you back granma?

i go through this every time i talk to my family - so i just ask them - would you rather see me married or happily married? - that keeps them quite for some time :-)
