Almost Romantic

I thought I was really into these photos of Katherine Heigl having lunch with husband Josh Kelley yesterday. TheyΓÇÖre cute, right? And thereΓÇÖs also something comforting about having someone whoΓÇÖs around to love you even if no one likes you. You could say itΓÇÖs actually rather romantic.

So here they are, enjoying a romantic moment, and then...

I looked closer...

Oh. ItΓÇÖs her mother, AGAIN, sitting opposite, just, like, THERE, all the time, in the corner of the shot, hovering, present, ALWAYS.

Now you know, as a Chinese person, filial piety is a big deal in my life. So I get it that sheΓÇÖs tight with her ma. IΓÇÖm tight with my ma too. Super tight. But dude, when my ma isnΓÇÖt sick, I donΓÇÖt need to be seeing her every day. And certainly not in the way that Heigl sees hers. HeiglΓÇÖs mother is her manager. So, sure, theyΓÇÖre together a lot because they work together. Which makes it even more crazy to me that sheΓÇÖs there, at lunch with her husband, when like, she was there in the morning already. And sheΓÇÖll be there in the afternoon. And I dunno, does she stick around for dinner?

Mother and daughter hair, mother and daughter careers, mother and daughter schedules...

Same, same, together, together, intertwined, intertwined...

I donΓÇÖt get it. Tell me, please, that thereΓÇÖs nothing to get. That I am totally unreasonable. That you are good with this, honestly, and if thatΓÇÖs the case, IΓÇÖll try to fix it in my own head.
