Somit sind Turbulenzen im Mutter-Tochter-Universum vorprogrammiert: Auf der einen Seite aufmüpfige Wischmopps, die Putzversuche von Allein-lebe-Anfängern boykottieren, und wildfremde Kerle, die uneingeladen mit Bierkästen vor der WG-Tür stehen und laut «Party!» rufen. Und auf der anderen Seite mütterliche Kochrezept-Konfusionen, die auf eine Tierverwechslung zurückzuführen sind, und aufgedrängte «Schals-für-alle-Fälle». Chaotisch, authentisch, autobiographisch!
