R: Amma, do you know how mountains cry?
R: yes Amma, cry!
RM: no, how?
R: when the stones come rolling down from the mountains, it means they are crying..
RM: oh…thats interesting…
R: And how do they laugh?
R: When they are really happy their stones come to shape like teeth in one line and they start smiling..
We meet a heavily pregnant lady in the lift..I ask her if she is doing well and all that, but R is itching to touch her tummy…I somehow refrain her
After we get off
R: Amma, why was that lady’s tummy so big
RM: Because she has a baby inside
R: Touching my stomach and putting her ears on it: I think you also have baby in the tummy
RM: no I dont
R: Dont worry amma, you will also have soon
RM: *Rolls eyes*
R and I are watching the re-re-re and add some more re’s-run of the fabulous cakes episode in which they make a sky scraper cake. R loves watching it again and again for some reason.
R: Amma, I think I will be a baker
R: Actually it is very hard work..I dont want to be baker, I will be someone who need not do any work at all..
We see a blind person walking on the road. R usually doesnt react to any kind of disability and I have never made an issue of it either.
R: Amma, why is that person walking with a stick
RM: Thats because he cant see, so he uses the stick as an aid
After 5 minutes
R: Amma, can someone not see from their eyes
R: Why that happens
RM: Well that can either be because of accident or because someone was born that way
R: But borning that way is wrong na..God should not do that..thats not fair na Amma
R loves make up for some reason. And I dont use any. She has been asking me why I dont use make up every morning.
Day before yesterday
R: Amma, why you dont use make up?
RM: Uff, R paka mat..if you want make up so much, become a make up artist when you grow older
R: Woh kya hota hai
RM: Well, those are people who put make up on others
R: But I want to put on myself..why then I should become artist..I will be the make up putting myself on myself person
On Sunday, we are running late as usual. Then RD says he is going to get the monthly provisions. I am like, but you said we all can go together and eat lunch out.
RD: Okay then hurry up
RM: yes yes I just have to wash R’s hair, wash my hair, and then clean the bathroom and then I will be done.
There is no sound from the other room
RD: Oh okay great, we will be just in time to leave tomorrow morning at 11 then
We are shopping in D Mart. RD is looking at the list and putting in stuff while R and I are just picking stuff and taking this and that.
RD doesnt say anything. When the billing is over, he looks at R very seriously and says
THIS is why I dont bring your mother along when I come shopping. I would have stuck to the list and gotten away paying just half of what we did right now!
