Throwback Thursday 3

In honor of Throwback Thursday, Here’s a post that had been sitting in my drafts for a very long time now…

Me: Dog says

Lime: bow-bow

Me: Cat Says

Lime: Meeaow

Me: Pig says:

Oink Oink

Me: Cow says:

Lime: Moo Moo

Me: Horse says?

Lime: Neigh Neigh

Mummy says:

Lime: Tut-too

Daddy says:

Lime: Nothing


When Lime is trying to have a conversation in Tamil…. he would go on and on. When Lemon and I give a blank look, he gets mad. Probably thinking why can’t these two understand what i’m saying. Below are some of his tamil convo words.

  1. Na poneen (I am going)
  2. Yepieekke (how are you?)
  3. Aama(yes)
  4. Na Pal Venu (I want milk)
  5. Na Kuiicheen (I took bath)
  6. Taaptiya (Did you eat?)
  7. *shakes head* for everything else.

He understands Tamil very well. But will reply back to us in English.

——–To be continued——-






I’m a big snow lover. But this year we have seen very less snowfall till now. So I thought the winter snow storm had decided not to grace me with its presence. All I have seen is rain during this winter. Well, I have been so snow-starving. But little did I know that it was going to snow non stop in my part of the world last evening.

I’m writing this post as snow is pouring. Oh! Wait! Did I say it right? Does snow pour? Or does it fall? Whatever it does when it is falling hard! I don’t know.

So, as it started to snow, I told lemon “Let’s go out! I know it’s snowing.. But let’s just go!”

His reaction? “Okay! I get it. You want to go on a snow-drive. But I’m just going to say No..”

After a small fight we both agreed since going out was not a bad idea. So, we did just that last evening. And it was fun!


And this happens everyday (100 Happy Days – Day 8)

Lavender: Please come home soon.
Lemon: Why?
Lavender: Can you cook today?
Lemon: Why?
Lavender: I am bored.
Lemon: Why?
Lavender: I hate you.
Lemon: Why?
Lavender: Chi poda.
Lemon: Where?

Lavender: **fumes**

Why? Why is he like this? I hate those stupid replies. Period.


And then when this happens…

Lemon: Eat this. Okay okay don’t cry. You want to eat this? No?
Lime: *cries non-stop*
Lavender: *gives him water*
Lime: *drinks water and stops crying*
Lemon: Sleep time. Sleep! Sleep!
Lime: *cries non-stop*
Lavender: *changes his diaper*
Lime: *goes back to playing after diaper-change*
Lemon: You want this toy? Play with this car!
Lime: *cries non-stop*
Lavender: *gives him paper and pen to scribble*
Lime: *stops crying*
Lemon: *hugs and kisses Lime*
Lime: *cries. cries. cries.*
Lavender: *hugs him once*
Lime: *stops crying*

… Lavender is happy! 

Ha ha! How I love this. Poor Lemon! 😛

And this happens everyday

We were lazy. We were tired. We ordered dinner and were watching TV lying down in bed. Aww! What a pleasure it is to relax in your own comfy bed and to watch your favorite TV show… Right? Right! Anyways, all of a sudden I turn to Lemon and ask this….

Lavender: Can you write a poem?
Lemon: Hmmm, yeah!

Within split seconds….

Lemon: “Roses are red, Skies are blue, I am the best and I love you!”

Lavender: huh? What was that?
Lemon: You wanted a poem!
Lavender: Yeah.. but…
Lemon: See? I have got talents! Don’t you think? *Grins*
Lavender: *Rolls Eyes*

I know. It was not bad.. Neither did I like it nor hate it. But, there was just one thought on my mind at that moment ~ this guy can do anything that I ask for. Even if its crazy!


I was travelling alone to India in 2010… Lemon dropped me at the airport. He was supposed to park the car, bring my biG suitcase and meet me at the check-in counter. While waiting, I just called him and….

Lavender: What would you do if I die in a plane crash? Will you remarry?
Lemon: I make mistakes only once! *hang up!*
Lavender: *Fumes*

Seriuosly? What do I do with him?


P.S:- I am trying to clear my drafts. This post was written long back! Expect to see much more from my draft-collections and Happy Diwali to all!

They will be here soon

Yay!! They just booked their tickets. Mom and Dad will be here soon!! Wow! After 2.4 long years, we are gonna stay together again!! I am sooo happy! 🙂 I need to plan a million things and I’m excited to do this for them. However, at the same time, I worry a lot about other things too. Yes! You read it right. I worry and I am concerned about a few things already.

The Brahmin-aacharams! I still need some help in understanding what “patthu”, “madi” and “theetu” means? I believe there is seriously some kind of concept behind this, like I must not keep cooked rice and chapathi together and I am not supposed to touch the food plate and curd with the same hand etc-etc. There are some thousand rules here and there. I am not sure how mummy has been following all this till date??!!?? I am clueless and confused to keep track of this whole damn thing!I don’t follow much of this and I am sure they are going to be mad at me.

Ah! Mom and Dad wake up by 5.30 – 6 in the mornings!!!! And what do Lemon and I do here? We sleep till 8 even during weekdays. Yes! Believe me! It’s only at 8 that our alarm rings and he rushes to office by 9. Don’t ask me about weekends. That’s for another post altogether. And oh! To get my things done, I order Lemon and I also yell at him at times. For example, it’s like “Can you cut this vegetable for me?” which he knows actually translates to “Do this right now!!” If he doesn’t, he knows he will have to face the consequences. The very thought of this brings him to the kitchen to help me around just in time.

I even need to watch my words while talking to him. Especially in front of dad. I can neither say “poda” or call him by the so-called-funny-names we had been calling each other till date. And oh! I am also that evil wife who cooks only once a day. Mostly dinner. And, we eat the same for lunch the next day. Well, daddy already calls me irresponsible for this. Back at home, mom never used to do something like this. I got to eat everything fresh – day and night. But what am I going to do now? I am just going to ask mom to handle the kitchen herself and that way we would at least get to eat something fresh every day. This is one thing I generally like about parents staying with us. Most of the times they not only cook but take care of everything!

And awwww! I almost every day skip breakfast which I am sure they are going to be more concerned about. They are going to go crazy at me when they see how silly, stupid and irresponsible I am. Gawd!! Please save me. I don’t want my parents to pass out in shock seeing all this.

And, Know what? I told Lemon about all this and I can already imagine that naughty boy enjoying while my parents complain about all the unorthodox-things I do. HUH !!! I know! I can no longer yell at him. At least in front of them.  I also know that they love him to bits. They seem to question a lot about what to bring for him from India more than what I need/asked for. Oh well! Should I be happy that they  love him ?? I don’t know! I am immature and jealous. Jealous at him when he gets such treatment from them!!! Shouldn’t all their love be only for me-their-only-daughter? Sigh! 😛

Anyways, this year is very special and I see happy times ahead.

P.S.: It has been a while since I wrote this post. I am dropping by and posting it only today.
