Homely Anomaly

Ever heard somone leaking out family secrets?

Today, I am going to do just that. I am going to tell you one thing about my mom, dad, bro, and grandma each—that I find weird. I choose today as the day because all four things happened today. Read on.

1. Mommy - She is somehow... how do I put it... I mean... adamant. She is adamant that all meals of the day should be eaten irrespective of whatever. So, to explain this... suppose I am not hungry enough for breakfast one day. It is at about 1 o clock that I feel the craving, and I end up eating my share of parathas from the breakfast. It all sounds good till here... parathas have been yummy. But... what next? Well, she comes back at 1:20 to offer lunch! I mean.. wait... what? I just had food... didn't I? To her - breakfast and lunch are two separate things... and can even be consumed one after the other.

2. Daddy - Ever since he bought Tata Sky Plus, he is of the opinion that every damn thing in the world can be and should be recorded. That is still acceptable... but my problem starts when he treats a TV serial and a live cricket match at par. I mean he somehow manages to assign me a task at the time a live match is keeping me busy... and coolly says, record kar lo... aake dekh lena. Well, that is really irritating. A live match is supposed to be watched live - in my view. One can record a serial and watch it later... which is what he loves doing :)

3. Brother - He is in class XII... is a little shy and practical... does not open up with people easily. Moroever, this ten-year gap between us ensures we have a bada-chota kind of relationship and not the usual bhai-bhai. He comes across as a reserved person... keeping things to himself. All is well till here. My problem starts when he starts singing the songs of advertisements... when they are on air. I mean.. these are not funky punky songs... no foot-tapping numbers... but simple gharelu rhyming songs... I have never ever heard him sing any movie song... but he goes whole heartedly for the advertisement songs. I think you might not find this very weird... but considering the kind of person he is, it is weird for him to sing in open... and that too, those lousy mini songs.

4. Grandma - She is 80+ and amazingly active. That is perfect. The issue I have is this habit of hers of shaking hands. She does it only to me... I mean whenever I go and hi hello to her... she likes to shake hands. It's not terribly weird... but somewhat weird :)

That's the immediate family... and they're great!

  7. @ Sid - Yeah.... all moms are excellent... just want to keep feeding their sons... I think the next generation moms will be more health oriented.

    @ Shilpa - Yeah! Jingles is the word I should have used. I was so annoyed at not finding the right word... ended up using 'songs'... how dumb.

    @ MM - Yaar maine socha kuch personal type bhi likhoo... next post bhi personal type hoga... uske baad I will be back with a new story...

    @ Pramathesh - So... do you eat? or you dont? I guess this is coming straight from your built...

    @ Gemini - First time here? I like new people. Thanks.

    @ Rishi - Yeh... now you have started putting links with comments... hmmm... the link is longer than the comment... hmmm.. haha :) Thanks.

    @ Pramathesh - Hey... thanks for the suggestion. I will tell you a truth... my web stats reveal that nobody bothers with what I recommend... haha.. But I can definitely swap it for one of the links... soon to be!
