Baby Talk...

There are 2 basic reasons for this post:

1. Baby talk is in the air, or rather talk on babies is in the air. And poor Dolz is bearing the brunt of every Gita, Sita & Rita (Incase your going huh...? It's the Indianized, womanized version of Tom, Dick & Harry) enquiring in hushed tones and dumb charades-ish actions- "Any good news??" So much so that our family prefers not to talk or get too socially involved with anyone other than the 5 of us and ofcourse close friends. That is just sooo much better than having to give 'excuses' like,"Oh, they both are in IT. No time you know" or "Ippo vendanu solranga" or "They are trying, but..." I mean, whatever their reasons are NOT to have a kid right now, it needn't be published in the Mylapore Times, right?

2. All that baby talk made me think of my childhood. I mean,I can't believe Dolz is gonna have a kid!I really feel me and her are still stuck somewhere in between adolescence and adulthood and are still nutty as ever. And here she's gonna have to raise a family..?!?!? And what would that kid call me...chitti, aunty, masi...? Uhm, I think I'd rather have her/him stick to calling me Preeti. It is way cooler, isn't it? Besides, it would be an Ego booster :)

Till I was in the 10th standard, me and her never discussed the B word (B=>Boys). I wouldn't dare breathe a word about the cute guy I had my eyes on. And she used to consider whatever I did or said as "Baccha stuff" ['Baccha stuff' was this ultra-famous phrase used back in our school by all the 'Seniors'] I never called her akka or anything, but I always felt the 4-year difference between us. Once we moved to Chennai, living alone really brought us closer. I've been really mean to her cuz of some a**-hole. I didn't talk to her for a while just cuz 'this guy' told me to (Don't ask me what I was thinking then, I really don't know). She used to cry and ask my friends to get me to talk to her, while I would turn away and cry silently :(

Leaving that silly phase aside, I must say that now me and Dolz are inseparable. She's probably the only one who knows me inside out. We still love watching cartoons together, have these CRAZY names (we both call each other 'buji'. The others are unmentionable) and brawl like maniacs in detention. I can show you nail marks on my right forehand that she gave me last month. I responded with a solid punch on her back :D buhahahaha! My friends have been witness to some extra-violent, true-blue WWF at our place. Hair-pulling, dress-tearing, expletives^infinity et all! But the next second, we'd act like nothing happened! (My mum gets super pissed for this cuz if she tries stopping our fight, we gang up against her instead)

For all that she's been through in life, I'm so, SO glad she's happy and married now to this superlicious guy. And the fact that she's still in Chennai and we still get to do all our silly stuff together is another thing I'm thankful for!

Oh, buj, I know this is all senti, and you and me are never that way, but I must tell you that I couldn't have asked for a better sister. And I don't know what I'd ever do without you. "Buji buji boo, I love you" [to be sung to the tune of the title track (!?) of Scooby doo ;)]

Hi Di,

Its has been a long time.. that i get to comment first on ur blog eh?

Well about the baby talk.. i really wonder.. It has been happening all long the times.. when mu uncles were married, they had to get babies by the next year.. it was like a planned thing you know?? ypu get married on one year, and the next year you have a kid.. but thats the old generations.. we have a lot of ppl now thinking otherwise.. they do take their time to get the kid.. and as a matter of fact.. women are so career oriented tht they think of marriage not before 27.. Am seeing all this happening, to one of my respected friends here..

and abt dolz.. i think she is really great person... and you re really luky to hav her as ur sister.. and i m sure she will have the world's cutest baby (with regards to her magnificient personanlity!!)

and yeah... may be you too will have cute kids.. ;) just like you.. well.. thats got to wait for quite some time..

Its not always you get a great sister like yours! so hats off to her as well as to your relationship with Dolz.. and she is also very good to us! so I suppose.. we are lucky too!!!

Way to go babe!

I get my neice to call me anna, much to the chagrin of my younger cousin sister whom she calls aunty;).

In any case, that was cute.

Arun Sundar said...

Reminded me of those good ol'days with my sis. If I think, it is indeed painful to realize career takes away a lot from one. Anyways, about those "Edhuvum visheshamaa??" asking people, I think of a joke I read a while ago about those elderly people always bugging youngsters:

In a wedding, one elderly woman naughtily told a single guy "Ah! now that Ramesh got married, you are next!!". And the guy replied "Now that Ramesh's paati passed away last month, Can I say you are next?!"
