Little kid, sharply dressed in a kurta-pyjama,must've been 4 or 5 yrs old. He's friskily jumping about, and Daddy suddenly gets up.
"Who wants this Galaxy chocolate?"
'Kiddo naturally jumps happily'.
Daddy:"First you finish your lunch"
Kid turns towards plate.
Daddy quickly peels off the wrapper. Bites off half of the chocolate bar.
Kiddo looks stunned.
Their friend who's with the family of three also looks astonished.
Daddy(By way of explanation): "Eni paase chhe ek chocolate"(He has a chocolate), and proceeds to put the bar in his pocket.
Me:*no wonder, a Gujju baniya", and I grin away at the first laugh of the day!!Wonder whether the lil kid got his chocolate finally. I almost wanted to get one for him when I saw his face when Daddy was munching half of it.LOL.
Just proves- we can all be kids at heart in different ways, na?
Amongst the foodie laughs of last week:
"Patta Gobiz Masala"...Even I didn't get this one, initially.
Another 'order' overheard which made me want to LOL:
'Randa Dippad chai" (Two teas of the tea bag variety. The Dippad refers to Dipped, of course)
This sign always makes me laugh when I pass it, in Karama Centre(Wonder if I told you about this earlier):
- Please don't use the massage chair for any purpose other than massage'.
(I always imagine couples sitting in close embrace in it, or, maybe a bunch of kids jumping on it or.....??)
