    I remember that day when mum was washing up after dinner and I, feeling too at ease from good exchange and being drunk, released a blow that struck her popliteals.
    I pretended not to notice that she pretended not to mind.
    In the kitchen, words spilled out that I’ve since wanted to gobble up a thousand times.
    She nodded and feigned a smile as I spoke, while by her side, picked away thumb cuticles with her candid finger.

    lol no, it's a metaphor. I told her some news (a blow) that caught her off-guard. ie. like being hit behind your knees, it makes your legs buckle.

    I guess having to explain your writing isn't a very good sign :/

    Don't like your use of the word candid, there are far better words available.

    etymology. It is such a hypocritical word in the modern world.
