Irina Khakamada: My Mom

I remember how my mother and I rode a trolleybus to the area of ​​Chapaevsky Lane, to kindergarten. It was very cold, I'm four years old. Mom worked as a teacher in the same kindergarten, but in a different group. I did not want to go there, it was so disgusting and dreary. Saved only by the fact that my mother is nearby! For as long as I can remember, she has always protected me. In the eighth grade, I somehow ran away from the lessons. The director found out about this, called us at home, and I went to the phone and began to imitate the voice of a neighbor. He realized that it was me, but I played to the end: a neighbor, and that's it! Then my mother came, and I told her the whole story: I ran away from the lessons and the principal caught me. My mother wrote me a note saying that I was feeling really bad, so I was frightened to say something on the phone and I had to call a doctor.

And in the tenth grade, a very adult man invited me on a date, I was 16, and he was 37. In Serebryany Bor, he treated me to ice cream and invited me to the Oktyabr restaurant, now there is a cinema. Before that, I had never been to restaurants, I became very curious, and I told my mother about everything. Another mother would forbid everything, right? And mine said: “Go, Ira, but only to the restaurant and back, nowhere else! You still have an exam tomorrow. I slapped into the restaurant, looked around with surprised eyes, the waiters served chicken tobacco - and I was terribly interested. Child foolish! But everything worked out, at eight I was already at home.

When I was a student at Moscow State University, I somehow slipped off to a biology faculty party, and it was so fun that I dragged myself home at 2 in the morning. Father, like a real Japanese, did not say anything himself, but conveyed through his mother that it was impossible to come so late. And my mother covered me, said: “I allowed her.” Although she herself was terribly worried and was waiting for me at the window. I still remember how I walk down the street, a young man sees me off, and my mother stands by the curtain, so sad, and looks into the yard.

When I was 18 years old and just entered the institute, I suddenly wanted to become a blonde. My father then lived with us, but he gave money a penny. And so my mother bought me a wig with the last pennies. For 100 rubles, and that was her entire salary! Another would say: "Stop thinking about nonsense, even get it out of your head!" And mine gave the last money…

Once, for once, dad noticed that he had an adult daughter, and bought me expensive boots. They were absolutely feminine, with heels and tsigeyka. I didn’t like it wildly, and dad was angry that I didn’t go to them. Mom again stood up for me: “She’s a girl, why did you buy these women’s boots for her? So what, dear ones? She doesn't like them!" And the father stepped back.

I remember once my parents quarreled, my father ran into my mother, and I, tiny, stood between them and began to butt my Japanese father in the stomach. He shouted: “What is she doing?!” And my mother answered: “She is a samurai, like you. This is your child, Khakamada, and what did you want? All in all, we had fun.

When I grew up, my mother was my friend, she knew absolutely everything about me. Because of me, she retired early: she sat with Danila so that I could finish my studies and defend my dissertation. At that time, there were no nannies, there was no money, and my mother sacrificed herself.

When I got married for the second time, and there was a child, whom I also brought home, my mother screamed: “Why do you need this? Why are you putting so much pressure on yourself?" And then she calmed down. When I got divorced and remarried, my mother at first condemned me, shouted: Guard!, And then said: “Actually, I understand you.”

She used to swear at my husbands: "Your husband is as idiotic as the previous one." We got into terrible fights. And once I jokingly threatened that if they poisoned my husbands, then I would act in the manner of Raskolnikov. Mom didn’t understand the joke and, just in case, closed the door with a key. I'm a samurai - I endure for a long time, and then I'll give it out! And she decided to be more careful: after all, Khakamada, the devil knows what these Japanese have in their heads.
