I often tweet about the eccentricities of living in a Sindhi family but this one deserved a dedicated blog post.
Mum: Why are your eyes red?
Dolly: What do you mean?
Mum: In the photos. Your eyes are red.
Dad: Are you wearing red contacts?
Dolly: What? Why would I wear red contacts? And it’s called red-eye, you know from the camera flash?
Mum: The same thing used to happen to Lara (our dog). Are you sure you are ok? Maybe there is something wrong with your eyes.
Dad: Yeah, and no one else seems to have red eyes. It’s only you. We are worried.
Dolly: *Pulls out her hair in exasperation*
