Subtitles: Anna = Elder brother ; Akka = Elder sister I think married people form some kind of a married-people-cult and they try all the time to get you in to it. One of their strategies is making their little kids call you ‘uncle’ (or ‘aunty’ - you know what I mean…) and you go “Oh man! Do I look that old??!! Time to get married” and then boom! you are finished!
Yesterday we had a party - hosted by two of my friends who are soon joining that cult. They are making two other poor hapless souls join the same cult too. Chetna, my friend Sudha’s little kid, came to me and asked me if I wanted to wrestle her. I am meeting her for the first time and we instantly became friends. Naturally, we got to play… I ran around with her on my shoulders, spinned her chair etc. When her mom came around and refered to me as uncle, she cutely said “This is not uncle, this is anna!” Yayyy!! Boy! Sudha tried a hundred times to make Chetna call me ‘uncle’ - without any success! We played so much that it compensated very well for the workout that I missed at the gym yesterday. Wow! Kids ARE energetic.
I made sure all my friends knew that I am being called ‘anna’ while they are still being called uncles and aunties :-) They tried their best to get Chetna to call me uncle and of course they failed miserably. Poor guys. I really pity them :-D One of my friends came to Chetna, put up a big pleasing smile and asked “Chetna, am I akka or aunty?”. Chetna said “AUNTIEEE” loud and clear! :-DDD
The icing on the cake was: she pointed at my friend and asked me if thats my mom! WooHoo!!! I would like to mention the name of my friend here but I am sure she will skin me alive if I did!
Chetna's mom is concered about sharing the picture on the internet. So I am not going to post it. I am really sorry. I have even deleted the last line in my blog that said that I am going to post the pic with her mom's permission.
Wow! Is there so much to it?
The debate would start by one guy claiming tht he is more mature looking than others.(They obviously didnt want their karisakaatu figures to think tht they are just a bunch of Tenth graders.) The Yardstick used to measure this was the amount of hair that grew beneath their noses!!!!!........
And in the Nallatinputhur room which functioned as a startup-cum-hangout-cum-resting place for Udhaya there was a small kid.This small kid usually mistook ArunTux as another slightly older Second Grader...The other two Lal and Kiruba were proud of their mature look tht decieved the small kid and teased the poor soul ArunTux.
Now times have changed and the wheel has come full circle......Ithunala thanda Tsunami varuthu...
That was a really good comment da... I am rolling with laughter...
Dei Thirupu, please share with us also the story of why you were given then name "paal kudikkum pappa"... :-)
Good comeback. Vayiru valikudhu da!
Dei... there was yet another yardstick. Number of dosais eaten in hostel mess. And we all agree that you were the emperor there...
