It's important not to disappoint Mommy.

Mustn't upset mother. What? But I think Weirsdo is just stopping by. I don't want to mother. Yes, mother.

If that's not an allusion to THE GRADUATE or I DISMEMBER MAMMA, you've Pansified me.

Sorry. It's PSYCHO, of course, and I was already reading the story as an autobiographical psychological allegory, but thank you for the confirmation.

Doug said...

Weirsdo, you make me glad none of the characters have nuns' bodies buried in their backyard.

It took me so aback that Ramak has stories of her youth. Somehow I have never thought that she was young. And what a dancer!

It is funny in the old socialist way: one is punished and made leave their home, the other is punished and sent home.

I am not worried, they have a Djinni with them in the end!

Doug said...

Ariel, that Djinni strikes me as shady.
