Ah yes, You read right.
No-one at my place, barring the plants for company.. Why I specifically mention them? Because watering my mother's 70 odd pots each day, is a pain in the wrong place :-| It's times like these for which I keep asking my parents for a Pet Dog, or a Gold fish even.
But then, ah, yes.. I'm not complaining!
I've lived by myself in pune, but that's NOTHING when compared to staying at your place without constant parental scrutiny. I can cook my own food, do my own thing, talk on phone for hours together; in short, be my own self! There is a long list of things that I can't do, but I'm not getting into all that.
There was this long list of 'instructions' that my mum had to deliver [and continues delivering over the phone] that initially were funny, then the same lines started sounding out of concern, but now they are plain annoying.
*!* Put the milk in the refrigerator. [Who drinks milk when you are away?]
*!* Water the plants. [Yes mumma]
*!* Don't open the door to strangers. [I'm almost 20!]
*!* Water the plants. [Oh yes]
*!* Don't keep the kitchen messy. [Like you'd know, ha!]
*!* Water the plants. [:-|]
*!* You can identify chloroform, right? [Till I identify, I'll be in Switzerland, At least in the dream! ]
*!* Water the plants. [Heard of drip irrigation?]
*!* Puja karna, roz, subah sham. [?]
*!* Water the plants. [Why couldn't you just keep 10, favorite ones?]
*!* If you don't keep your bed crisp clean, bad omens will enter the house. [I never did that even when you were here. Additional work is cheating!]
*!* Water the plants. [Could I just throw them down the terrace? But then I'll have to throw 7-8 a day, they are SO MANY!]
*!* Computer lock karke jau kya? [how the hell do you do that?!? Plus, Oh hello! I'd DIE!]
*!* Water the plants. [Has some-one told you that you own a mini-jungle?]
*!* The house-maid comes at 7 a.m. every morning.
WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MINDS CALLS THE MAID @ 7!?!?
I don't mind 8, but 7, SEVEN?
And they call up @ 7 every morning [even sunday] to see how awake I am :-|
They always ruin ALL the fun! x-(
P.S. Its getting boring now. Drop me some tips no.
P.P.S. A lil bitta gyan sharing. Never ask a guy "What's up?" Unless you want weird answers :P
