I messed up at work today ma!
But don't worry I handled it well.
Thanks to your endless nagging and lessons to never leave a mess behind.
I am managing my expenses well(a secret crisis account too)
Just the way you taught me about handling the bills at home.
Whenever things get hard, I sit alone to pray and make peace with myself.
For you taught me that a girl should be religious.
I try to make my point by doing things right
as you used to say "Nice girls never argue."
So tell the neighbourhood aunties who taunt you for the way I turned out. Tell them that I didn't waste your home-making lessons but modified it. Tell them that you are proud of the bad in me. Tell them the way you told me, ma!
