I love babushka's. What about you? According to Google babushka means an old woman or grandmother in Poland or Russia mayhaps wearing a headscarf tied under her chin. Babushka's to me are cute and sweet little old lady's who wobble around when they walk and offer you treats mysteriously and endlessly hidden within their person. They laugh aloud at any given chance and are always great at cooking. And if they're not, they always stock up on those full-sized candy bars to give you because that's just how they roll. Ethnically I'm Filipino and I spent about four years of my childhood in the Philippines. As in most Asian cultures, respect is deeply instilled in young people; you must respect your elders because they are the embodiment of wisdom and God's blessings (old age). We have a custom in Filipino culture called 'mano'. An elderly person will offer the back of their hand for you to touch to your forehead. It's a way of saying, "I honor you." We as Filipinos, again like many Asian cultures, also start and end our sentences respectfully saying 'po'. For instance, we'll say, "Hello po. How are you doing, po? Nice to see you today, po." It is also improper to just say 'yes' and 'no' to elders without adding a 'po'. We say 'opo' instead of just saying yes. Why do I mention all this? Because at age eleven I went back to the United States. And the informal relationship young people had with elders was a culture shock; especially kids calling their parents by their first names. That blew my mind! The disrespect, the blasphemy! Needless to say, I wanted to address all my elders in the States respectfully, which in English the closest translations were "Yes ma'am" and "Yes sir". Looking back, that seemed rather militant. In fact, more than one elder told me to just call them by their first name. It was hard. Because in the back of my mind, I was pulling my hair and internally yelling 'But I don't want to disrespect you! It is my sworn duty to show you respect.' Little old lady's to me could do nothing wrong. And I even loved the crabby ones! In fact, I loved them a little more. They just needed someone to talk to. And if you let them vent a little you'd get a motherly hug and a surprise gift later on, usually in the form of something home-made. My mom is a babushka. She is 71 years old now. She's round like these figurines and when she raises her arms she has the most adorable fat flaps. Her skin feels soft and wrinkly and whenever I get to look at her I know that no matter how much we may squabble about nonsense she is God's blessing to me. -- So my mom's favorite past time is shopping. Always has been and always will be. She may or may not be a mild hoarder. Anyway, most of her "precious baubles" come from HSN and QVC. If you don't know what that is, they are American Home Shopping Networks where someone overtly attractive and charismatic convinces you to buy something. Right away. Over and over again. And let me tell you, they are the most ridiculous shows ever and I get both frustrated and equally fascinated watching her watch them. She has these notebooks filled with order numbers and every week the UPS delivery guy, who was by now her close friend, had something for her. I always said if this woman knew how to Amazon we'd just be fucked. Like QVC and HSN the gift shops I worked for all sold things NO ONE NEEDED. But that didn't mean people didn't want them. I mean, my mom wanted a lot of stuff. I could never understand it but I appreciated it. Mostly from my experience as a gift store clerk selling things no one needs; I got to watch when people had a connection with an item. They could hold a babushka figurine in their hand and begin tearing up because it reminded them of their Grandmother or their Mother or their Aunt. Or, like me, the image of a babushka means happiness. It's like holding happiness, and every time you turn your head and look at it nestled somewhere, you may be reminded "Hey, this bauble has 'babushka energy' as Nana had. And Nana was always happy. She wouldn't want me to be sad or slack off. I love Nana and I love this figurine." If you'd like to meet Agnes & Ethel the Babushka Figurines in person, they'll be waiting for you at with warm and welcoming smiles at the Kustom9 Event on August 15th, 12 AM SLT.
