The untold tales

Hi Mom, Dad,

I may sound age-ist here, but I don't let the upper generation touch my blog. So you're never gonna read this. Which is why here goes -- some things about me that I never told you:

- Remember the plant in the living room that was so healthy it used to amaze people? Well, I fed it with a staple diet of the milk that I was supposed to drink every morning.

- During 'study hour' on Wednesday evenings, sis and I used to put the TV on mute and watch 'Chitrahaar'.

- When I was in the 12th standard, I was made to stand outside the classroom for one whole day with all my classmates. The class teacher walked past the class and sarcastically said to me, "Aap is school ki head girl hain na?" ("Aren't you the head girl of this school?") That was terribly embarrassing.

- I never finished the long course of those antibiotics that I was taking. In fact, I used to toss one tablet out of the window every single day to see how far it travelled.

- I don't know what I was thinking when I used to say that my dream was to be an engineer. I think it could be because 'doctor' was taken by sis.

- I never actually studied seriously for IIT.

- I lied when I said I have a lot of savings when I quit my first crappy job without a back-up. I was down to my last 100 bucks. I just did not want to take money from you.

- I never really looked for another engineering job after I quit the first one.

- "This whole editor thing" was actually not a temporary thing as I'd told you.

- In my first year at university, I was climbing down a flight of steps when I saw this Mauritian guy. He was so freakin' good-looking that I tripped and sprained my ankle quite badly. It still hurts sometimes.

- Remember when I broke my leg within six months of landing in Singapore because "I fell down while jogging"? Well, I conveniently omitted to tell you that I broke my leg because I was crazy enough to go jogging on the road at 1 in the morning.

- I went to a bachelor's party once where I was the only girl other than the stripper. And the guys asked her to give me a lap dance. Yikes.

Sayesha said...

Hey Ro,
Haha! SO refreshing to see a non-pink comment from you! :)

Ash, Ashwin,
Hehehe! :D

Hey Vijay,
Silent reader, huh? :)
To answer your question, well, it's unlikely that Mom will read this 'cos she has to get over her exploding computer theory first. Dad will most probably do his usual frozen expression behind newspaper thing! :)

Aye Kay said...

Walao. Ur mom's bargaining skills are right up there. It sounds almost unbelievable :-) And how did you end up at a guy's bachelor party????

Sahil said...

You were a mischievous little one weren't you??

Lap dance? U? hahahhahaha I think ur friends took the 'being one of the guys' thing too far!

Funny post. And what makes it funnier is that its all things that u've actually done. Milk for the plants, and antibio's out the window. hahaha :)

viv said...

For a long time, I thought you broke your leg because you were staring at the Mauritian guy while jogging... :P

Sayesha said...

Aye Kay,
Oh you read that post only now? Yeah, she rocks!
And when you're 'one of the guys', you gotta be there at the bachelor's party. :D

Sahil,
Yup, I was quite mischievous! :P
And yeah, I endured the lap dance for exactly three seconds before I realised I could not take it, and asked her to get her butt off. Quite literally.

Viv,
Idiot why would the cool Mauritian guy be out on the road at 1 in the morning? He's not the crazy one, remember? :D

Naveen said...

I thought I was rash, spontaneous etc. etc. Seems like you beat me!! Actually it's kinda refreshing to know!

samantha.

Mr. Quipster said...

so you left an engineering job to take up an "editor thing" ?

Sayesha said...

Naveen,
Yeah, sometimes I can get really rash! :P

Samantha,
Good luck! If your plants die, I'm not to be blamed, ok? ;)

Mr. Quipster,
Yes I did. A lot of people around me wonder why. It's difficult to explain the whole thing :)

divya said...

Awesome writing =D loved it! And I am sure your parents will when they discover it =D

Sayesha said...

Ummm yeah everyone... Virdi is my Dad.

Leon said...

In a moment of indiscretion I sent my blog link to my Dad, and now my writing horizons have narrowed considerably..:-(

Anyways he'll probably get bored and forget all about my blogging in a month or so and then I can write more controversial stuff.. hehe

Divya said...
