It was my mother-in-law’s birthday and my husband and father-in-law decided to celebrate it at a restaurant this year. My mother-in-law wears very cute and beautiful dresses, and a month before her birthday she was already shopping for clothes for her birthday. I am from village and I had a hard time getting along with her.

About ten days before her birthday I heard a conversation with her daughter. She said: “Well, we have to invite the village relatives, they are our daughter-in-law’s relatives, and let them come and learn how to enjoy life.”

I went to her and said. “You forget that you are also from the village, and now you are acting as if you lived whole your life in the city.

I added that neither I nor my parents will come to her birthday party.
