Subordinate Claus

Christmas eve. I call up baby Aish.

Me - Hi, Aishu! What's happening?

Aish - I'm waiting for my surprise present.

Me - Oh. Who's getting you a surprise present?

Aish - Santa.

Me - Oh! Santa?

Aish - Yes, Santa will come on a reindeer and he'll bring my present.

Me - Wow. What present will he bring for you?

Aish - Umm... I need shoes. I think he will bring me shoes.

Me - Aishuuuu....

Aish - What?

Me - I need shoes too!!!

Aish - Okay, he will bring shoes for you too.

Me - Sure? You'll tell him??

Aish - Okay, I will call him and tell him.

Wow. Reaching Santa had never been this easy. :)

Merry Christmas to you and Viv.

We have a 2 yr old neighbour's kid and were discussing a couple of days back what we can get her 'from Santa' when mom and dad shared stories, for the neighbours, how they used to keep chocolates and stuff under my pillow.

I hated the topic clauses in school.

Sayesha please give me Aishu's phone no, I also need a pair of shoes :P

#Arnab De,
Thanks. :)

Thanks and same to you! :)

:D :D :D

Hehehe! :D
Merry Christmas to you too!


Hahaha! My Dad used to put 'decoy gifts' -- potatoes and onions -- in the stockings that my sister and I hung near our beds. The real gifts would come out later after we had yelled the house down seeing the potatoes and onions! :D
PS: Haan, clauses were really annoying. :/

Sayesha said...

Hahaha! I'll just tell her to ask her 'boss' to bring a pair for everyone, what say? :D

reena said...

Special wishes for baby Aishu.
