Me: Mom, do you know what that animal is?
Mom: Koala, I used to have one when I was a little girl.
Me & Brian: In Thailand?!?!
Mom: It was stuffed.
Me & Brian: Ohhhhh....
Mom: When I was 12 this man came into my family's restaurant from Australia. When he went home he send me big box of stuff and the koala.
Me: Awwww, how sweet. Did you carry it everywhere with you?
Mom: No, Ohma... it was real but dead. You know, stuffed.
Me & Brian: What?!?!

Petra is Ohma's mom. They're very close and often have quite candid conversations. The name "Petra" was born when Ohma's mom needed a pseudonym for Ohma's radio show. She decided on "Petra the Sex Expert."
