Me: Solom, I love you. Do you love Mama?
Me: What do you love about Mama?
Solom: A tiger.
Me: Okay, let me explain. What do I love about you? I love your nose. I love your sweet personality. Now tell me, what do you love about me?
Solom: A globe.

Solom and my cousin Omar were scrolling through pictures in his iPad when they came across a horrific, distorted picture I'd taken of myself just for fun.
Omar: Suleiman, is this Mama or is this a monster?
Solom: This is MAMA. (Pointing at me) That is MONSTER.

If you haven't seen this yet and are so inclined, check out the interview I did with Musharraf Ali Farooqi for Vol. 9 of Papercuts. He had some interesting views on Urdu and the creation of Pakistan. You also get to see his cat, Mano. After meeting a literary critic recently who said, "Everyone's in conversation with someone or the other" though, I'm seriously questioning the title of this piece! Anyway, enjoy.
