There are many ways you know you were raised in a Turkish house. If I listed them all I would be here forever, but here are 8 ways you know you were raised in a Turkish house.
1 – Seeing this in your Nenes hand and not on her foot would scare the life out of you:
2 – Your first experience with late night TV was ‘Tutti Frutti’.
3 – You take your shoes off before going into anyone’s house.
4 – Your clothes always smelt of garlic or fried köfte.
5 – Every Sunday you met a new cousin (or Kuzen) who would come round for dinner.
6 – If there was no hummus in the fridge, there was a problem.
7 – During Dizi night (every night) there was no talking, no phone calls and no complaining.
8 – Everything in your living room was and still is covered in plastic (usually the packaging from when it was delivered)
