Family reunions can sometimes test the limits of our endurance. There is a constant flow of deeply personal questions from the family such as, "When are you getting married?", "Where is your boyfriend / girlfriend?" Or even "How much is your company paying you now?".
But in the end, family is still family and we love or hate them. We can't help but refer to these following family interactions brought to life in Watson's Raya video.
1) Embrace relative cooking in the kitchen – and chase it away
Imagine this: the main chef is cooking in the kitchen and we go to greet them only to be chased out of the kitchen while we are in the way.
The minute they greet him, they are chased out of the kitchen
2) Sit in uncomfortable silence
We only meet some relatives once a year. Cue the awkward silence and cricket noises in the living room until someone breaks the ice.
All around me are familiar faces, worn places, worn faces
3) Assessment and evaluation of the outfits of our relatives
As someone who never really dresses for the occasion, I often get the brunt of my family's judgment. To keep things fair, I also do my own part in the internal assessment.
Judgy looks around
4) Having unearthed embarrassing stories from the past over and over again
Most relatives are experts at extracting those old stories from days gone by, including all the embarrassing details that I still try to forget on sleepless nights.
Memories of the past
5) Acting too cool for the family home
There is always a person trying to rename and refresh their image. We're not ashamed to admit that we tried too. At least Loca B looks legit cool here.
Not everyone can do it, not me
6) Calling everyone to eat way too often
Although we love our food, sometimes we get too busy catching up, leaving the poor cook from the first scenario to demand that everyone stand up to eat the food they have been carefully working on.
I called the family for dinner while they danced
7) Having a family pet as a favorite child
Not as cumbersome as the others because we are guilty of the same behavior. This was just an excuse for us to place another adorable cat gif.
The cat gets more love than I have in a long time
