So here are some conversations I have with mom and dad
( Mom and me cleaning stuff and talking about things)
Mom: So, what do u think we should do with this thing?
Me: I think..
Mom: No, I think this is better. What u say?
Mom: Yea, this should be the right thing to do!
Me: Umm, were u having this conversation with me?
( Dad is watching cricket and I flop down on the sofa)
Me: Oh there’s a match? Who’s playing?
Me: Okay, is that Punjab? Versus whom?
Me: Are they batting first?
Me: Am I talking to the table?
( Meanwhile my brother)
Bro: Just read the details at the bottom of the screen, will u?
( While going out for a function)
Mom: Should I wear the green saree or brown?
Me: Green looks good
Mom: Yes, it looks good but why simply to wear such a nice saree to this function? I’ll save it for later. Brown is enough naa?
Me: Why do u even ask? I’m sorted. I’m wearing this.
Mom: Why that but? This other one looks good on u.
Me: I din ask for ur opinion!
Me: Dad, which ear rings do u think will match?
Me: And which bracelet?
Me: Okay done! That was easy! Thanks, m ready 😁
Me: A selfie?
Bro: As usual!
( Making plans with friends)
Me: I am going out
Mom: Why can’t u sit at home? Come back early
Me: Dad, just drop me till there
Dad: Where are u going?
Me: With friends, I already took mom’s permission
( After it gets late)
Me: Sorry Dad, it got a little late
Dad: No problem, even I was late, even I haven’t been home
Me: Where were u then?
Dad: With friends
Me: Okay, lets face the music together
( On reaching home)
Mom: Oh thankq for coming back so early u two! This is a guesthouse for u both right?
( Discussing work issues with Mom)
Me: Mom, I have this issue at work
Mom: That’s bcoz u don’t eat properly
Me: It’s a work thing and it is irritating me
Mom: Yes, u should eat. U don’t eat on time that’s why u get irritated
Me: Mom, it’s a work thing, not related to food
Mom: Yes, but if u just get up early and have a proper breakfast then it will be better
( Driving practice with Dad)
Me: Let’s driveeeee
Dad: Slow down.. And why do you need to go in fourth gear? Upto 3 is enough for u
Dad: Brake! Brake! Brake!
Me: But why, there is no one infront!
Dad: U should know how to break. And learn to balance just with the clutch.
Me: Okay, is there anyone behind? I’m reversing.
Dad: I’ll tell u, keep reversing back, Go.. Go..
Me: But there is no place
Dad: I’m telling you there is place, keep reversing
Dad: Wait stop! ( pulls the handbrake) This was enough for today, now u get off the seat.
This post was actually supposed to go out yesterday but I’m doing it today. My Dad is a man of few words – few but powerful words. He talks with experience. And my Mom is a woman who talks a lot – most of the time just because she has to talk 😜
But both of them love me dearly. There was this one photo I had where both were kissing my cheeks at the same time on my first birthday 😊 That’s my favorite memory with them.
Today 7th May is their 30th wedding anniversary! I wish them many more years of togetherness, and I want to have more such silly conversations with them 😁
Happy anniversary Mom and Dad🎉 Love u both 😘
