"Say something nice," Mom says, giving us a go. She earns a lot of laughs. "Don 't I always?" Dad winks. I pretend to gag as Mom visibly blushes. "Alright, I can 't believe today 's the day I proposed to you, twenty years ago. At that time, I was nothing but an orphan handling my deceased uncle 's business." I realize a bit late that dad 's actually on to serious business. My mom 's eyes are slightly watery, but she keeps them focused on dad. "Since the restaurant was doing awful at the time, I couldn 't even afford to buy you a diamond ring. I proposed to you with a plain metal ring, which you have worn every single day." Half laughing half crying, Mom holds up her hand and shows everyone the old, scratched ring. "I thought she was joking whenever she…

    that answer even if I wanted to. Then … it started getting worse. She would wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom but when she tried to stand up and get out of bed she would collapse in pain and wake the whole family with her wails. She claimed that her knees were on fire and her back ,she said, seemed like it was being pulled apart by invisible hands. Same as with her appetite she could have been bluffing a bit but no amount of acting ability could distort a face into…

    I did not know what to expect at first, all I knew was that it was a comedy. But I could have never expected to see what I saw. I really like Toinette, she was by far my favorite character. I liked the story of her, I thought her sarcasm, eye rolls, big sighs, funny remarks made it more entertaining. There really wasn't much I did not like. The songs were catchy and witty, the singing was very impressive. The only think I didn't care for was the nephew, not that it was acted badly or anything. I…
