Elders are evolved, and this makes them loose out on some precious brownie points in comparison with kids. Evolution breeds a well-defined reason which is presumptively backed by some obscure logic and in the end is still a twisted concept. Kids don’t worry about such trivial issues.
Attribute it to their non-evolved mind that is open to make possible anything that remotely makes good sense agree with it, they come up with such wild imaginative plans and ideas that make up for some hilarious moments. 🙂
We’re watching Duck Tales on the laptop when suddenly A Jr starts shooting this stuff at me.
A Jr: *In a complaining tone* Papa ke laptop mein do wires hain aur mere laptop mein ek bhi nahi. Kyun? 😦 (Why does Papa’s laptop have two wires and mine has none?)
Me: *Trying to calm him down* Papa ka laptop baar baar charge karna padta hai na, aapke laptop mein batteries hain.. (His laptop has to be charged. Yours has batteries)
A Jr: Jab main bada ho jaunga mujhe bhi do wires wala laptop chahiye! (I want a two wired laptop when I grow up)
(I have to start making a list and open a new bank account right away!)
Me: Thik hai…Papa se kehna wo aapko la denge… (Tell your Dad, He’ll get you one)
A Jr: *Triumphantly* Haan, mujhe Toshiba wala ya phir Vaio wala pink colour ka laptop chahiye! 🙂 (Get a pink Toshiba or Vaio laptop for me)
Me: Par pink colour to girls ka hota hai na…aap girl ho kya? 😛 (Pink is a girl’s colour, you aren’t a girl are you?)
A Jr: *Dejected* Nahi main to boy hun…accha mujhe green wala la dena. *After thought* Par pink colour ki wires milegi kya? (No, get me a green one, but can I have pink wires?)
(This metro-sexual boy simply loves pink!! :D)
I’m in the kitchen trying to wrap up the cooking fast. It is hot and the kitchen fan is not working. My live entertainment package comes in to make it bearable and even a little enjoyable.
A Jr: Jab main bada ho jaunga aur Papa chhote ho jayenge phir main shaam mein office se aaunga aur unko picture dikhane le jaunga. (When I grow up and Papa becomes small I’ll take him for a movie after coming back from work in the evening)
(I’ve never understood how and why we become small when he grows up!) 🙂
Me: *Confused and nonsensically * Accha…kaunsi wali? (Which one?)
A Jr: *Ready with an answer* Chillar Party wali…chote log baccho ki picture dekhte hain na. Aapko bhi leke jaunga haath pakadke. Chillar Party nahi, doosri wali.. (Chillar Party, since it’s a kids’ movie. I’ll take you too, but for a different movie)
Me: *Glad I was at least involved* Oh..thik hai..thank you! 🙂
A Jr: *Proudly* Welcome…aur main bada baccha ho jaunga na phir main aapko protect bhi karunga! Kisine aapko tang kiya to usko ek jhapad marunga phir wo rone lagega! Ha Ha! 🙂 🙂(I’ll protect you too. If anyone troubles you I’ll slap that person very hard and make him cry)
Me: *Sarcastically* Aur aap office jayenge to Papa kya karenge? (What’ll Papa do when you go to work?)
A Jr: *Without batting an eye-lid* Main unko school bhejunga padhai karne! (I’ll send him to school to learn) 😀 😀
I’m only glad A is at the receiving end of all this! For some unfathomable (and thankful) reason he chooses not to poke fun at me, at least as of now. 😀 😀
