Survivor Series: The Exorcist

New series | Movie titles that remind me how my kids get out of trouble

The Exorcist is the technique of choice for #4.  God has blessed her with very strong lungs and we saw this at a very early age.  So what is The Exorcist?

One time we were at Costco (best place on earth) and #4 did something she was not supposed to do.  As I prepared to scold her she preemptively strikes with The Exorcist.  She screams at the top of her large lungs like she has been possessed by some demonic force, “NO MM!  NO MM! NO MM!”  She is screaming, kicking, and waving her arms around.

NOTE TO READER: MM is the abbreviation for the Korean word for spanking “mae mae” or aka: I’m Gonna Git You Suka.

Here is the funny thing.  She is trying to alert the public that something illegal is about to take place and that they need to save her.  What she doesn’t realize is that is why we say MM.  No one understands what she is saying.  So while it was embarrassing, this act produced sympathy for me in the public eye rather than condemnation for being a parent who uses MM as a disciplinary tool.  I love immigration and being bi-cultural.
