The parent trap

Okay I am going to behave like one of those annoying women in those annoying teleshopping channels who hold up the WonderMop or some such thing, show their annoyingly dazzling teeth and say, "This works! Like magic!"

I am going to hold up this post, give it a little shake to get your attention, and then with a dazzling smile declare, "This works! Like magic!"

Why?

Well, I just got an email from my Dad that made me almost fall off my chair.

"We're thinking of visiting you in September..." it said.

:O

As Ajit would say "Smaaart girrrl." :-)

Stupidosaur said...

Do only your in-laws read your blog, or even your parents?

Maybe what worked was that they read that post? Or your in-laws told them about it?

Doubting Stupidosaurs ate the Thomases.

#Raja,

#Stupidosaur,
Parents don't have the URL, I email them select posts. I'd told Dad yahan aao, URL ke jao. :P And in-laws are under oath not to discuss my blog with them. :P

Stupidosaur said...

Haha! In-laws read blog. Parents don't! Yeh toh wohi baat hui, gairon pe karam, apnon pe sitam...

(To prove Stupidosaur wrong, Sayesha starts dhaoing sitam on him (newspaper whacks!) Akhir Stupidosaur bhi apnon mein hi toh hai!)

(On second though, would having to read your blog be a sitam, which you are sparing your parents ;) ?)

(Oh wait, this comment is wrong on so many level! It calls in-laws gair, bhai's blog a torture! What next!)

BTW thanks for your appreciative comment! Means a lot! I didn't reply there because I owe some people before you some long replies. It didn't seem right to reply to you first. I don't have space/time sorry, I mean energy/time for those other comments right now. In fact I missed writing few posts because I wanted to reply to those fellows first! And now those post ideas themselves are gone! Never mind! Woh toh aatey hi rehte hain!)

Stupidosaur said...

Oh shit I am drunk with sleep!

This so illogical:
(To prove Stupidosaur wrong, Sayesha starts dhaoing sitam on him (newspaper whacks!) Akhir Stupidosaur bhi apnon mein hi toh hai!)

That would actually be a case of apnon pe sitam,, unless bhai considers stupidosaur paraya!


See, again this is wrong at so many levels! Stupidosaur paraya! And one more WRONG here: How dare Stupidosaur be DRUNK with SLEEP!!! of all things, when he is at THE BAR!!!

I think these comment must be putting people to sleep! Better put myself to sleep instead :P! Its nearly 3 am here :P

Neha said...

You know what...I have that strange feeling that its more coz of ur in laws being there and u having a good time with them....green is the word sweetheart :)
