When your mum invites people to your house without warning

And you look like THIS.
(Ok SOMETHING like this. I can't put there real one online our you'll be in therapy for the rest of your lives. 

I could look worse, you know. Anyway, on Sunday,  my mum was out with some relatives, and, to my ABSOLUTE MORTIFICATION she called out of the blue and was like : " Hey we're downstairs now, gonna come up! Tell your sister!"

My expression was kinda like this ahahaha:

I don't know if I would have preferred to look like this:

Or this:

I usually look like a mess at home, more than I usually do. :D
So I was running around like a headless chicken. You know, to hide stuff, like our prized DVDs and storybooks so that in case someone says;"OH HEY I LIKE THAT".

My mum is a very obliging and magnanimous lady.

Well but I couldn't be looking like a horrible monster in front of people I only see once every few years, I left the Hiding of Treasure to my sister. And I went to comb my hair, apply a little lip balm, change into a shirt which didn't look like I've worn it for more than a decade and on the verge of falling apart... in an ATTEMPT to make myself look a litttttleeee bit better.

All for that 10 seconds of Hello How Are You I Am Fine I Hope You Are Too .... and SMILEEEE.
