Happy Mother’s Day and all that 🙂
So R left for Sabari Malai with her father and grandmother on Saturday..yes…the brat finally went..I didnt put it on the blog earlier because I didnt want to jinx it..yes yes, I am superstitious 🙂
Anyways latest update from her father – She hasnt asked for me EVEN ONCE!! So much for missing mothers and Amma venams!!
*Secretly dancing in joy*
They plan to climb the malai on the 17th..please pray R manages it…I had people telling me in the temple that she may be bit too young with not even four and so much to climb so much may be an issue..but as per my MIL ‘God will make her do it’ So there..lets see…keeping fingers crossed..worse come worse, RD can stay down or practice climbing carrying her...in a way good na, lovely practice for the marathon eh 🙂
Anyways, so once R was gone without any problems, I am making the MOST of it..despite having FIL and MIL’s mom to take care of, I have been meeting up with friends through out the weekend…Saturday night met up with a friend from the previous office and what fun we had talking and talking and talking 🙂 Had made dinner for the FIL and G-MIL so came back late
I had messaged Tan asking her if she can meet up..and she said yes..then I asked Pepper if she can meet us, and she also said yes..without any issues…
until, on Saturday, I get a call from Tan..
Tan: RM, how old is R
RM: errr..going to be four
Tan: Okie cool
RM: no but wait
RM: Arey R is not coming for the meet
Tan: WHAT WHAT!! Why why?
and I tell her about the Sabari malai thing..she is disappointed but is kind enough to agree to meet me
then I realise may be Pepper also is expecting R..and my feelings were right..Pepper was expecting R!!! I had messaged her saying ‘R will not be there, but can we meet?’
She grudgingly agreed with both she and Tan accusing me of Dhoka and something in those lines 😉
Well, I had to make the most of the kid not being there right?
Anyways to pacify them, I thought I will make some fresh molagapodi for them 😉 So I made that in the morning and we decided to meet at 5
I arrived late at 5.02!!! and both of them were there…For the first time in my life, I was the last person to arrive
I call up Tan..
RM: where are you?
Tan: In lifestyle
RM: Oye, I have never been here before, where is that
Tan: Even I havent been here before
RM: *Smacks on head* Where do I meet you
Tan: At the entrance
and as I wait at the entrance, I call up Pepper knowing she is already there..the girl doesnt pick up
I see a pretty girl where a dark military green top with lovely hair waiting with a phone expectantly looking at the entrance…I thought its Tan, but decided not to make a fool of myself..so I call her
She looks down at the phone and picks it up and I tell her ‘Palat, its me in the green t shirt’ We meet up with a yay! and hug each other and decide to call Pepper
She picks up the call
RM: where are you?
Pepper: somewhere in side
RM : Errr…where?
Pepper: I dont know
Pepper: Well I am somewhere inside
RM: Arey we are waiting at the entrance
Pepper:WAit wait I am coming
I see a girl with a stunning figure and amazing eyes with a phone in her hand and I ask her on that phone, is that you, is that you and she is like yes yes yes and we three meet and hug each other again
And then Pepper says she has been at this place a lot of times and yet managed to make us get lost!!
Lesson #1: All three of us are HORRIBLE with directions!
We figure out a place to sit and go talk talk talk talk talk…
Some stuff I remember from the conversation
Tan: Your value is half without R
Pepper: We were expecting to see her so much…I was upset you didnt bring her
I mean boss, they are my friends, and they were expecting to see R..Gah!!!
Anyways, we talked and talked and talked 🙂
Happening #1: Tan introduced us with lovely peri peri fries from McDs…totally worth it..she also shaked the fries in filmy style for us :):)
Happening #2: I tried very hard to get cold coffee for Pepper, but the damn thing was just not available so shared a chocolate milkshake with her 🙂
We of course exchanged presents, me being the kanjoos just giving them molagapodi while they got wonderful stuff for R and Me…but I dont have RD to take the pics so will put them up once he comes back
We finally said good bye after some three hours of continuous talking with Tan extracting a promise that I will get R to her work place for pani puri and Pepper threatening me to get R to her place, other wise….
Well all in all, an excellent Mother’s Day celebration 🙂 So what, if R wasnt around 🙂
