Asking for trouble..

Episode 1:

Vyas and his cousins were watching an IPL match and refused to budge from the place. It was well past their usual bedtime.

Me: Vyas, its time. You can catch the highlights tomorrow morning.

Vyas: Ammaaaaa! Holidays you know! We want to watch it live.

Me: (after a little while): Vyas, go hit the bed! Its time!

Vyas: OK.

(disappears into the bedroom and comes back in less than 40 seconds)

Vyas: I did.

Me: What?!!

Vyas: I hit the bed. Twice.

Appa is literally ROTFL-ing! J.O.K.E it seems!

Episode 2:

The school has handed out a few sheets of holiday homework… no boring stuff .. It has a crossword, some puzzles and English, Hindi brush-up.. Vyas and his cousin Keshav (they are just two months apart )have been extra noisy this holidays. Keshav has relocated to Chennai from Saudi this year. To shut them up, I reminded about the holiday homework and promised to make another copy of the sheets for Keshu too so he can brush up before the school re-opens.

The two exchanged meaningful glances and,

Vyas: Ok da Keshu. Come, let us write. Don’t forget to pick up a brush da.

Keshu: What are you saying da?

Vyas: Amma says, we need to brush up.. you get it?

This time Keshu does ROTFL-ing, a little jig, and they both tap, clap and boo me!

More ruckus with the little BEE joining in! BRATS!

Positive, and positively talkative!

    1. @chatterbox: Yeah! Wish I were on their side though;)

      @Smita: Welcome hai ji! hilarious yes, but teaming up against me- NO!

      @ambulisamma: Ok, some fun at my expense. Will await my turn.

      @R’s Mom: For now, am letting him get away with those one-liners… every dog has its day:|

  1. Children acting smart is a double edged sword! Its very easy to turn the tables.. but we would end up being their coaches on the topic. So, its best to play the victim πŸ™‚
    Oh by the way.. Vidya.. I guess the word you are looking for is payback.. for all your raangifying them all these days πŸ™‚

  2. Ha ha.. Vyas is doing all the right things to become a future master of mokkai… πŸ˜€ I see glimpses of N in him.. πŸ˜€

    1. LR: You are right about us playing the victim… Aaana kosu tholle thaanga mudiyale!

      Tharani: Varun is not silent.. saying too many things and am itching to write… need time to put them together:) And thanks for asking:)

      Uma: hmmmm…

      Appy: You said it! Mokkai master he is. But ‘glimpses of N’ gives me hope;)

  3. in all fairness, why did you tell it in english? that language lends itself so easily to puns, especially when you are on the receiving side πŸ˜€

    ps : i think the first joke is brilliant. Vidya camp-1, Vyas’ camp – all of us πŸ˜›

  4. ROTFL. spending summer hols with cousins is the best…
    Vidya just to remind you Varun is around the corner to join these brats.. have you heard about adding fuel to the fire? I am not doing that.. seriously πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. @ Abi: this amma-paiyyan pair is weird like that- in extreme angst or ecstasy, we automatically switch peter-vuttufying:( Somehow, getting angry in engleees feels mild:) See, right now am seething with anger at your joining the brat’s camp, but I bet you are visualizing me smiling like a saint.. no?

      @Ani: with cousins around, kids don’t need us around much… which is nice.. but the looties and mess is something… And Varun has already teamed up and charges at me menacingly when I raise my voice at the anna.. he surely needs a whack! so, you have really not fueled the fire;)

      @Titaxy: yeah, at my expense!

  5. ROFL! So cute πŸ™‚ A week back, I told brat ‘we might bump into your friend A today’. So when we actually met him this evening, brat actually goes and bumps him!!

  6. Please don’t get mad at me, but these are funny..very very funny. (till you are not on the receiving end πŸ˜€ )

    Go Vyas go..
    *runs away*

    1. @Swar: ok lady… laugh now. one day….

      @Pals: You are the only one who has made me feel nice:) Good to know am not alone!! LOL on the kutti paiyyan bumping!

      @Comfy: Hey, how can i get mad at you.. I can see you and Buzz teaming up against the dad now and then.. but I’ll wait till things turn around;)
