As my mother goes to work

My mother does not work. When I say that she does not work, I mean that she does not go out to an office, where she stays from morning till evening, and return home tired and annoyed like my neighbour’s mother. But she does work. She does a lot of the housework. Yet, she does not ‘work’ in the eyes of society, because work is where you venture out of home.

However, I do not wish to dwell on the stress that working women have to deal with compared to the ones that do not. But I do wish to wonder (out loud, out in paper) what my reactions would be if my mother suddenly started ‘working’.
