Watching a show called 'Beat Bobby Flay'
TV: Winner is.... Bobby Flay
Mom: What?!! The other guy was better.
Me: Mom, it's called Beat Bobby Flay... it's already tilted to Bobby winning.
Mom: I know, Ohma, but he should let other people win. He will always have show... let other people win, too.
Mom may be a conservative but she's a liberal at heart.

Ever since I introduced my mom to Netflix, she has been gobbling up TV series after TV series. She is currently on Season 8 of Dexter.
Mom: Ohma, I'm almost done with Dexter.
Me: Wow, that was fast, mom. Do you like it?
Mom: Yeah, but I don't think Hannah is good for Dexter.
Me: Mom... she's a murderer... just like Dexter.
Mom: Ohma...(exasperated)... he only kill bad people.
Me: Mom, he cuts people up into pieces. He still kills people.
Mom: Whatever.... I don't like that Hannah. She not good people.
She is going to HATE the end.
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."
