(Caption for the above pic: Do you feel this way sometimes??)
Thought for the day: "Intelligence is like an underwear. It is important that you have it, but not necessary that you show it........"
(Please laugh- don’t say ‘Ugh’..LOL)
Blogspot seems to be quite user-friendly, now, so, I aim to continue here. Wish me luck. Or, perhaps I should post at both places- nee, that’s too difficult.
And, here’s the second part which talks about our ‘tastes’ in food, friends, family, et al..Excellent.
- Everything you eat is savored in garlic, onion and tomatoes.
(We love our food-and,the savoring ensures it never goes to waste, right?)
- You are Always standing next to the two largest size suitcases at the airport.
(Yup, instead of buying four small suitcases, two will do)
- You arrive one or two hours late to a party - and think it's normal.
( That’s one bad point- late is not fashionable, or, is it?)
- You name your children in rhythms (example, Sita & Gita, Ram & Shyam,
Kamini & Shamini.)
(LOL- if people have two kids in these days, that is. And, rhythmic names are always easier to remember, na?)
- All your children have pet names, which sound nowhere close to their real names.
(Ya, like the proverbial ‘Chunnu Munnu De Pappa Di Gaddi’ So sweet, na?)
- You talk for an hour at the front door when leaving someone's house.
( LOL- yes, this is Sooo true- front door conversations are more interesting than staid sofa talks, na?)
- Your parents tell you not to care what your friends think, but they won't let you do certain things because of what the other "Uncles and Aunties" will think.
( Yes, a good upbringing..that’s what makes many of us and the next generation remain somewhat well-mannered, even in this day and age)
- You fight over who pays the dinner bill.
(LOL- yes, isn’t this a typically funny scene? ‘Nahin , main pay karta hoon’, ‘Nahin,
- You live with your parents and you are 40 years old. ( And they prefer it that way).
(LOL-yes, you remain Momma’s/Dadda’s boy/ gal, even at 40- unlike countries where, when you turn 15+, you’re on your own)
- If you don't live at home, when your parents call, they ask if you've eaten, even if it's midnight.
(See how much they care? I know people who have to reel off the menu, even, at midnight.Grin..Nee, not me)
-You call an older person you never met before Uncle or Aunty."
( Again, indication of nice upbringing, I feel)
- When your parents meet strangers and talk for a few minutes, you discover you're talking to a distant cousin.
( It’s a small world, where Indians are concerned. If not cousins, they turn out to be from the same Lane/ City/ State )
-Your parents don't realize phone connections to foreign countries have improved in the last two decades, and still scream at the top of their lungs when making foreign calls.
(Isn’t it cute?)
- It's embarrassing if your wedding has less than 600 people.
( The best example of togetherness, I feel. The whole family, from Bhai-Bahen, Chacha-Chachi, Mama-Mami, et al get together. And, the ‘next in lines’ are eagerly paraded, in the search for their future mates. )
Sic PJ of the week:
Q: Did Adam and Eve ever have a date?
A: No, just an apple.
A girl walked up to the information desk in a hospital and asked to see the "upturn." "I think you mean the 'intern,' don't you?" asked the nurse on duty. "Yes," said the girl. "I want to have a 'contamination.'" "You mean 'examination,'" the nurse corrected her.
"Well I want to go to the 'fraternity ward,' anyway." "I'm sure you mean the maternity ward." To which the girl replied: "Upturn, intern; contamination, examination; fraternity, maternity - what's the difference? All I know is I haven't demonstrated in two months and I think I'm stagnant."
Till next time, keep smiling.
