 My boyfriend is acting very strangely. Whenever I wear revealing clothes, he feels unhappy. Is this a legitimate reason to change my style to something more demure?

 

These boyfriends, I tell you!  Sometimes, they can be experts at unnecessarily adding complications to your relationship. Here is my straightforward solution to your problem. Your clothes, young lady, reflect who you are! If you agree with this, then believe me when I say that, firstly, the boyfriend comes across as a little lame. Secondly he seems to have a problem with who YOU are. Obviously you are showering him with excessive attention and he doesn’t appear to have a problem with your behavior. Time to open those eyes and shake yourself up my child! Because this isn’t a legitimate reason to change your style but it certainly is one legitimate enough to change your boyfriend!  So next time he walks around wearing his jeans on his knees to reveal J-O-C-K-E-Y, you will find reason enough to “change”. Take amma’s word on this one.

 

Its odd that pregnant women suddenly start hating food they used to love! Why does this happen? Why do pregnant women get strange food cravings?

Ah, smart move you naughty mind! Actually your asking me is justified because catering to your future wife’s cravings will be that tough job you need to start preparing for! Now, it is obviously not “all in the women’s heads”. If you say that, nutritionists and medical experts will give you those dirty looks. These sudden cravings are the result of hormonal changes that drastically alter taste perception. And, don’t forget, there is a small growing fetus draining nutrition from mommy dear. Arey! She is now eating for two! And my logic, which has never in the past let your curiosity down, likes to assume that the fetus is taking nutrients unevenly. Hence, those weird cravings and aversions! Now that you have asked me this exceptional question, my child, I have worked my brain to tell you some very interesting facts.

THE MOST POPULAR CRAVINGS:

1. Ice ice baby! Ice, not water or a soft drink.

2. Pica, in which the mother craves non-food substances. So get bags full of dirt, clay, chalk, dishwasher detergent and, the least scary, ice chips.

Oho, now all of a sudden I need to rush. That pickle sundae is starting to sound awfully tempting. Going by my svelte figure, I bet you must be wondering where I put it away- *wink wink*.
