Okie so tell me something…if your best friend from high school and college is pregnant…wouldnt you know?
OF course you would..I mean ANYONE would okie?
But me, the world’s stupidest friend..HAD NO CLUE!!! and yesterday I get a message in the afternoon that said
We have been blessed with a granddaughter. Mother and infant are fine. – SU
The only one with the initials I know, as SU, is my friend’s father in law…
But, But, I also know that my friend has a brother in law who is younger to her and I thought he got married and got a baby girl
But anyways, I thought chalo let me try calling..and I called up my friend’s husband..(Errr..dont ask me why I didnt call up my friend!) I dont have an answer to that!
So I call him up and say
RM: errr…its RM
G: of course I know its you
RM: Errr…so who got a baby??
G: We got a baby
RM: No, I mean who in the family got a baby?
G: We got a baby RM!!
RM: No no, I mean to ask if she is YOUR baby…your’s and N’s baby!!
G: Laughing..yes yes..she our baby
RM: OMG! Oh Sh*t, Oh Sh*t! I had no clue…I mean…you got another baby…I mean..I mean..OMG!!
G is laughing on the phone and I am screaming on the phone and the entire office is looking at me as if I am some kind of a nut!! you know those people they show on movies who shout at the most unexpected of times when there is total silence around!!
I mean, here is N, who got married AFTER I did, who got her first baby AN YEAR after mine! and she got another baby!! I mean, for God’s sake, Another baby!!
and before that of course, I had read on FB, that her sis got engaged…and me being me, the big foot in the mouth, write to her saying ‘How can you get engaged, you are a baby..when did you grow up so much’
She being the sweet one says ‘Well Didi, I grew up’ or something in those lines..
I mean, I am still under shock about her engagement and I get such a message Phew!
I havent been in touch AT ALL..with my friend N..she lives in Mumbai, and yet I have been too busy to even call and ask how are you? I am pathetic I tell ya 😦 totally pathetic 😦
and then there is more..
RM: Errr…so they are doing well are they?
G: yes yes..both of them are fine
RM: oh okie..
and then I ask him ‘ WHY ON MARCH 1ST, WHY NOT FEB 29TH’
G: Errr…well the baby was born today na?
RM: So why not yesterday? (sounding angry)
G: trying to placate me: Well she was admitted yesterday but the doctor asked us to wait for a day
RM: why, why..she could have been a leap year day baby na??
G: I am sure he was wondering what sort of a friend does his wife have: Well..
RM: acha forget it, abhi I will meet them okie?
G: of course..
and then I realised I had no clue if she was at her mom’s place or here
RM: Errr…where are they?
G: At the hospital!
RM: Arey, where are they meaning which city?
G: oh! Mumbai only
RM: okie okie..tell N I will come and meet her in some days okie?
and in the WHOLE conversation, I didnt even realise that I should be congratulating him!!! *Rolls eyes* I mean thats the FIRST thing you do when you talk to a new dad na!!!
Thankfully years of grilling on good manners by Amma Appa flared up and I said ‘Oh G by the way Congrats!!”
G: thanks rey!
and we cut the call….
I was so so excited…
I call up RD
RM: arey RD RD RD
RM: Arey I have such news to tell you yaar
RM: arey you are busy or what?
RM: arey but listen na
RM: N..you know my friend N right?
RM: arey my friend N from college..
RM: arey she got a baby girl yaar..today only..I spoke to G
RD: oh great congrats
RM: I am so excited
I then realise that he is probably in a meeting or something and must be busy..but I HAD to share the news with someone na!! so the first person who came to my mind was RD..so I called him..but with his ‘yes-ings’ I should have realised GAH!
Well..at the end of the post…
