Meet the parents

*peeps into the bar and looks around furtively*

*checks that everyone has only a harmless glass of orange juice each*

*checks that there are no visible give-away signs or incriminating evidence of batli-giri or bhai-giri*

*announces, but in a hushed whisper*

"All right, people, I've decided to do it. I'd been thinking about it since this happened, and now it's finally happening. No mistakes, okay? They're already on their way to the bar. Let's go over it one more time - no bhai talk, no bewda talk, no drunk bar-top dancing. Behave, okay? Keep sipping your orange juice and smiling. Smile a lot. Talk to them, but do not mention anything about the..."

*turns to see them walking in, hurriedly finishes sentence*

"Errm... no mention of the B-A-R, okay?"

*turns to smile at them; they seem amused at the surroundings and the confused-looking people with their huge plastered smiles*

"Mom, Dad, this is everybody. Everybody, these are my parents."

*smiles nervously*

I'm sure they'll have great fun discovering the blog, although keeping the number of years and blogposts in mind, this is gonna be one long stay and read!

Rebellion said...

Arrrre, auntyji, uncleji, bhelcum bhelcum. Kya bhaigiri wali beti paida ki hai baap, maan gaya apun aap dono ko. Bhai-giri bolo toh, ekdum bade bhaiya jaisa pirotekt karti hai apun sabko, sayi hai na? :D

In sabse darne ka nahi. Yeh sab roz ke client hai, baaar ke. Arre, tension nahi lene ka, baar bole toh woh jagah jahan apun sab baar baar aata hai, isliye apun usko baar kehta hai :P

Yeh dekho, apun satrangi-narangi pee le raha hai, aap piyoge? Arrre, satrangi-narangi bole toh, aapke bharat ki fast food bhasha mein, ganga jamuna! Orange mausambi juice, mix karke. Kya bapu, aap bhi, har cheez samjhana padta hai!

*takes Sashbhai to one side*
Theek hai na bhai? Apun ne sab theek se sambhaal liya na?
*Grins n trots away* :P
