A factual fiction!

After she had put down the receiver…

‘Now who was that?’

‘P… who else!’

She gets ready in 5 minutes flat and rushes to the door.

‘Will be back by elevenish…don’t keep dinner for me’.

‘The same old jeans…don’t you have something that flows?’

‘O Maa, I don’t have the time to wear all that….besides he is out at the gate’.

‘Your ears look bare’.

‘Maa…I can’t choose…besides what’s the need? I could do without something dazzling or dangling for now.’

‘Instead of arguing with me, go and wear something that doesn’t dazzle or dangle’.

She rushes in…

‘And while you are at it, wear a bracelet or something…’

She shouts back, ‘but I’m wearing my watch!’

‘But you have two hands, no?’

‘I give up Maa…what’s the point?’

‘What point? I like P besides who else can tolerate you?’

‘Huh! S is waiting along with P and I can hear them honking….BYE’.

  1. Haha Indian moms and their ‘But you have two hands?!”. Luckily my mom doesn’t harass me too much about over-accessorizing. Though I know one too many households where this happens!

  2. LOlz. Somehow my mom is never into dangling or dazzling things! But she would be paranoid if someone was waiting for me at the gate, especially a guy!

  6. Sometimes makes me thank my lucky stars for being a man:

    Men’s Guide to getting ready:

    Step 1: Wear pant
    Step 2: Wear shirt
    Step 3 : Accessories: Wrist-watch
    Step 4: Add-on accessory (optional) : Spray deo.
    Step 5: Add-some-more-on accessory (again optional): Spray deo under both armpits
    Step 6: Get out of the house.

    But its always angelic to see a beatiful lady all dressed up for you. 🙂

  7. No idea whatsoever on that…

    but i’m pretty much sure my mom would act entirely different if I try to wear ‘something dangling/dazzling’ stuffs… 😀

    Only thing my mom hates is black clothes… I just love black t’s…

  8. I guess I spoke too soon, lol. I have a mehendi ceremony to go to tomorrow and my mom is not okay with the outfit I picked. 😛 She claims it’s too casual, but the girl whose mehendi it is, is planning on keeping it semi-formal. Aaaah it’s all good, I know my mom will agree with me once she sees me wear it – I’ll just have to compensate by accessorizing I guess. 😛

    PS – Started a new blog (http://deliciouslysunsational.blogspot.com) Check it out when you get a chance! 🙂
