A one year old boy is babbling. Me and my daughter were standing next to him.
“Mom, what is that baby saying? ”
“Sweetie, I don’t know.”
“Mom, I think we should buy a baby dictionary to understand what he is saying”
Mommy is confused!!! Continue reading
Do you have a love story?
Well, I have one.
I’m an ardent, an unwavering and a loyal lover of food. Sometimes I think the only thing worthwhile is cooking a nice tasty meal and to eating it to my heart’s content.
One year back, when I moved to the United States, my passion for food reached new heights. I am a vegetarian and not all the restaurants in the United States have exotic vegetarian entrees. My first opportunity to enjoy American food was at IHOP.I had heard they served a good pancake breakfast something I had not had before. Therefore, one fine morning, I went to IHOP for their “Strawberry Banana Pancakes”. Continue reading
Are you tired of following the same schedule day after day: doing the same chores, driving the same route and doing the same work at the office? Are you bored of leading a monotonous life? Are you reminded of ‘Groundhog Day’ movie?
Here is a simple solution to spice up your day: Think new.
When my days seem like a boring routine, I deliberately try to change my way of thinking and get a different perspective.
Yesterday, when I saw the weird writing prompt “Two plus two equals four: Yes or No?”, I wanted to think about all situations when the answer is ‘No’. Here are few of them:
- When I asked my 5-year-old daughter, what is 2+2, she said it’s twenty-two!
- There are 2 mothers and 2 daughters in my house. It doesn’t mean 4 people. There are only 3 people at my home. It’s my mom, me, and my daughter!
- Yesterday was Father’s day. Many museums and parks advertised “Dads FREE with paid child admission.” If it is a family of 4, then, they would have paid for 3, not 4 since there was a free admission for dad.
- 2 cups of milk + 2 spoons of sugar are not going to give me 4 cups of sweetened milk.
The above example is trivial, but it just shows us the extent with which we can approach the same old question.
Try something new or do the same work in a new way. I bet, you are going to feel lively!
For now, I’m going to try a new recipe for my breakfast. 🙂
The other day someone asked me, which smell I liked the most?
A smile crossed my lips, which soon turned into a rolling laughter.
The word ‘smell’ immediately reminded me of Pheobe’s song from the famous ‘FRIENDS’ series.
“Smelly Cat, Smelly cat what are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, smelly cat it’s not your fault…
They won’t take you to the vet.
You’re obviously not their favorite pet.
You may not be a bed of roses,
And you’re no friend to those with noses.
Smelly cat, smelly cat what are they feeding you?
Smelly cat, smelly cat it’s not your fault!”
The song, as absurd as it sounds, is one of my favorites from the ‘FRIENDS’ series.
Anyway, that’s not what I really like. I don’t like a smelly cat. 🙂
It may sound odd, but I am attracted to the sweet smell of baby lotion covered with talcum powder. It associates with the joys of childhood. It also brings back the memories of my daughter when she was a kid and all those precious moments we shared. Over the time, the smell became synonymous to anything that is cute, sweet and adorable.
Which smell do you like?
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Smell You Later.”
‘Adopting a pet’ is one thing which I never thought ,until last week, when my five old daughter, came home from school and said she needs a fish as her pet. Here is our conversation
“Mom, I want to get a fish”
“Fish ? Ok. I’ll make you fish curry tonight”
“No Mom. I want a fish as a pet.”
“Why? Why do you need a fish as a pet?”
“My teacher told pets need lot of love and affection”
“ I need a pet. I love dogs but I have to clean their poop. I hate cleaning poop”
“I love cats too but I hate cleaning them”
“So let’s get fish. We need not clean it’s poop. It will always be in water.”
I could not control my laughter!!. Awww..it was so sweet..!!!
However, I am already so busy taking care of many things in my life, that I cannot even imagine about being responsible for any other addition to our family, even if it’s a pet. For now, we make do with soft stuffed toys – a cute pooh bear and an adorable puppy 🙂
