A Whimsical Medley – Is my theme for the A to Z Challenge !! Hope you smile today 🙂
There’s no easy way to dodge the B word once you have crossed the optimum time as a married women, which in some culture is as long as one month. And since I have crossed 40 months of blissfully married life, I am the reason behind the aghast expression on my mother’s face when she realizes that there won’t be any baby news this month either.
“I am not ready yet” – a statement as lucid as this somehow isn’t enough to convince her. She waves it off with “Ohh you will be when it happens”. I take one look at the kid screaming his lungs out at the Woolies!! No I will never be ready.
When it comes to talking about my achievements, she still describes me as a young lass ready to take over the world. Probably even reduce a year or two from my age. But as soon as the topic changes to Babies, suddenly she imagines me 10 years older with grey hair and probably with twisted fallopian tubes. I wonder if she has nightwares of my uterus slowly wilting without providing her with any grandchild.
Do you know how many views the video of “80 Surprise eggs Mickey Mouse Disney Pixar Cars 2″ has got … 594,607,604. And do you know what that is … breaking easter egg chocolates to find what’s the toy inside. Seriously!!
Yes, it’s a video of finding toys inside chocolates. And kids watch it … all day long, on after another, on repeat.
This is the reason why aliens don’t attack Earth!! 😛
