For the last 8 years and much to my utter dismay, my Mom and Dad have now affectionately been calling me "Moti". "How are you, Moti?", "Where are the kids, Moti?" and "Wapas, agaye, Moti?" (You're back, fatgirl?). There is no malice or ill intent with their use of the word, it's just that I have gained some weight since I was last 23 years old, so why not point out the obvious? Ironically, my younger sister Amina's nickname growing up was "Moti" because of her ravenous love for milk when she was a baby. Cue the 'Moti Girl" song, my clever little brother Mishal substituted the words 'Macho, Macho Man' out of the Macho Man song with the words 'Moti Girl' and anytime Amina would annoy him, he would bust out with the Moti Girl song complete with a waddle-wiggle dance and puffed up cheeks. Think the Stay Puft Marshmallow man from Ghostbusters trying to get his groove on. That's what it looked like. Anyways, now that mongrel (love you Mishoo) has transferred singing this lovely song to me. Yes I am that lucky! Ok fine I will leave the realm of denial and admit that I have gained a lot of weight since my the years of my prime.
