A mother-daughter duo, after spending a considerable part of the day playing teacher-student( which is a much favoured game in the house BTW), is about to call it a day.
The mother, looking at the holocaust state of the house, this li’l pretend-play has brought about, tries her best to keep her teacherly-calm intact
Mother (still in the polite teacher-mode) : School time over, sweetheart! Its time to tidy up! C’mon lets pick up your blocks and put them back in the trunk and keep your books back in the shelf, shall we??
Daughter (clearly not in the mood to go along with the game or in other words, not in the mood to listen to her mom) : Oh no, our play-time is over, remember? You’re not Miss Y now! You be my Mama, ok?
Ok, then, as you say, darling….
Mother (in her usual loud demonic tone) : NAMNAM, PICK UP YOUR BLOCKS AND PUT THEM IN THE TRUNK, AND KEEP YOUR BOOKS BACK IN THE SHELF OR ELSE I’M GOING TO THROW THEM IN THE BIN!!!
Daughter (clearly shaken up by this threat) :Thats ok, Mama, you can be Miss Y! Lets tidy up together, shall we??
Mother: 🙄 🙄 🙄 🙄
PS: The mother, in her defense, would like to state that she exercises the option of threat only when she runs out of options like coaxing, pleading, cajoling, bribing, etc. to get her daughter to listen to her sometimes.
Yes, yes, I’m still very much alive and so is this blog :D. Unfortunately have hardly had the time to update it or read other blogs too :(. There have been days when I’ve had a lot of things running in my mind which I felt like sharing but when I got around to jotting those fleeting thoughts down, they seemed so irrelevant that I ended up discarding them.
Even though I have only been away for about 10-12 days, it seems as though I’ve been away for many many days. And this may go on for a few more days as I’m in the midst of moving houses, packing for a short trip to Delhi(which both Namnam & I are very excited about as we’ll get to spend the New Year with our family).
Dont know how soon I’ll be back, but will be for sure :). So till then, adios!
Keep blogging and blog-hopping!
