Simon anxiously walks up to meet his mom who is visiting from Atlanta, GA. Simon is so happy that he gets to see his mommy.
Mom! I've missed--
You are late.
Oh, I'm sorry, I thought we said 7:15, how was--
You gained weight.
Mom, c'mon, I'm trying to lose--
With lighting quick actions, Simon's mom goes for the love handles. Simon tries to defend with kung fu manuevers, but fails...
See? I am grabbing your fat! Did you gain weight????
Simon bows his head in defeat.
A single tear rolls down Simon's cheek. Simon turns his head to avoid further humiliation. Awkward silence as the two wait for the Airport Express.
INT. AIRPORT EXPRESS - NIGHT
Simon and his mother sit side by side.
So, what have you been doing for the past 2 months?
Simon perks up.
Well, mom, I've joined this great site called alive not dead, and...
Who is dead?
No, mom...it's a website.
Oh, I see, Internet....OK, so, what have you REALLY been doing?
Well, I've been shooting some stuff and --

Simon's mom vomits in her mouth a little.

Do they tell you to do something different? I mean, I would love it....LOVE IT...if someone out there, is a BANKER and his or her mom is like,
"Honey, all you do is make lots and lots of money and those sports cars and that huge beach condo you bought is just so boring! and your charity work ...HA...so cliche! why don't you become an artist and fulfill your life's destiny! ? You know those pesky little things called your dreams? GO FOR IT!"Anyway, this blog is kinda ridiculous, but I thought that I would share. And yes, my mom REALLY is in town from Atlanta. I haven't seen her in a minute, and it is weird that HK is the place that we meet up. Hong Kong is DOPE!
So, if any of you "starving" artists out there want a free meal...MAMA YIN is in the house! HOLLA!
Here is a picture of the legend, the myth...my mom.
