This and That

May 12, 2010

Kids say the darnest thing!

I lift up Chula (from utbt) and dances. Then huffing and puffing the following conversation happens.

Me: Hey Chula! You are getting heavier girl! You are a 5 year old! Very soon, you will be old and strong enough to lift me.

Chula: Yeah! When I am 64!

Me: 64?

Chula: How old will you be, yy aunty, when I am 64?

Me (cursing herself for getting herself caught in this situation) : Well around 100 years old.

Chula: No Silly! You will be dead!

Me: ………………………………

Idhu enakku thevaiya? (Do I need this?)

  3. Either she is in the phase where anything more than ten years old is OLD

    Or she is secretly hoping that I die and leave her alone.

    Poor girl does not know that both ain’t happening πŸ™‚

  4. Veyli la pora onaana veyti la vidradhu kelvi patruken idhu enna pudhusa vazhila pora poorana madila pudichu kattikaradhu

    Mr.Me.. You are partially correct and the pooran was my pudhu mozhi. The correct one I think is, Velila (Veli – fence) pora onaana veyttila kattikaradhu. Since I don’t have a veytti, decided on madi. And pooran seems more dramatic than a paavamana onaan.

  5. Lol.. this pooran sounds like a lot of fun! πŸ™‚

  7. Just remembered the most audacious thing I ever said as a child…sang this little song “Delhi Bombay Calcutta, un kudumiya pudichu izhukkattaa” and promptly got a carrom striker hit on my front teeth by mom (as the person I sang to happened to be my periappa with 9 muzham vetti and a kudumi… RIP…)..fond memories…hehe…
