Mum: "Next time if you don't get married, you can buy a house of your own. A small one..."I can be pessimistic and say she has definitely given up hope, or I can say that we're forward-looking.
Mum: "...a 2-room flat."
Mum: "So that I can go and stay with you sometimes."
Me: "... ..."
Me: "Why must you stay over? I was thinking of a studio apartment."
Mum: "No, a 2-room flat. For me to sleep in when I visit you."
Forward-looking. Definitely forward-looking.
