I know I know…I am turning into some sort of a chumma random story teller machine
I wonder how R comes up with the weirdest of requests…Amma, zara ek story bolna she says and when I start to say one story, she says ‘amma, never finish hone wali story..long story’ and I am like ‘oye I dont know anything like that’ and she is like ‘acha amma, abhi bhindi ka story bolo’
R: yes yes amma, mereko bhindi very much (Basically I like bhindi very much)
RM: I know I know, but I dont know any bhindi story
R: amma, mereko bhindi venam..story venam (Amma, I want bhindi, I want story)
RM: Errr..okie…so one day all the vegetables were having a party
R: Kya party amma, new year party?
RM: yes, new year
R: like apna building ka party?
RM: yes yes
so all the vegetables were having a party and the bhindi was very upset because he didnt have anything different to wear…he didnt want to be green in colour
So he told God, ‘I want a different colour’
God said ‘but you are green, so beautiful and pretty’
Bhindi said ‘but I want to be purple like the brinjal, or red like the tomato, why am I so green, its such a common colour, and then most leafy vegetables are green’
So God said ‘but beta you are lovely in what you are and you have such lovely qualities, most children like R like you so much…’
But bhindi was very upset..he said ‘but God, I want something different, you gave everyone something different na…so even I want something different’
R: Phir kya hua amma, uska colour change ho gaya?
RM: no no, then God said okie…I will give you something special..and God made a lovely crown which was green matching in colour with the bhindi’s colour with a long tall pointed head and lovely design…and Bhindi was very happy..he said God God wow my crown looks so beautiful and God was like now are you happy..and bhindi said ‘yes yes very happy..thank you God’
and Bhindi goes to the party with his crown and everyone says ‘wow Bhindi you are look so pretty…we loved your crown’
and the Bhindi was very happy
R: oh wow!
RM: yes yes now wear your socks
and so thats how the bhindi got his crown *rolls eyes*
For all who asked about R’s cough – thanks 🙂
but its still there…the kiddo is back to the asthma mode huffing and puffing her way through…but insistent she wants to go to school…no fever so I sent her…hopefully the doc will give her something strong today evening…
