Conditioned by

It’s 2AM, the lights are off, I’m in my bed reading on my Kobo.

All of a sudden my grandma wakes up to use the washroom that connects our rooms together. 

In a panic, I turn the Kobo off and pretend to be asleep.

Why? Because when I was a kid my grandma and I shared rooms and she would always criticize me whenever she caught me watching shows or listening to music on my iPod before sleep. 

So I conditioned myself (yes even in my adult life) to hide whenever grandma wakes up in the middle of the night.

It’s weird but we’re all conditioned in our own ways.
