“I learnt a new game” was the first thing A Jr came to me with in the morning. Without waiting for me to open my eyes or respond, he continued, “It is called Atlas. I will give names of places and you will continue it further by taking the last word from the place I mentioned. Now let’s start.”
I was still deep in slumber and had yet to gulp down my customary morning drink (lemon juice+honey+warm water) to pull me out of it, but I played along anyway until A woke up and was forcefully obliged to take the baton from me. It was funny and endearing when A got bored of winning hands down, while A Jr graciously accepted his defeat.
Angel is down with minor cough and cold and caused a mini riot in the household with her outbursts on A Jr. She refused to eat anything since she woke up and took A completely by surprise when she suddenly started bawling that she wants Apple! 😁
I kept reminding everyone that I have a Navratri fast and if they don’t behave I will boycott the kitchen for this duration. They won’t have any choice but to join me. The unequivocal warning seems to be working as of now, although I’m not sure for how long they’ll heed me. :-/
The first day brings in the most hunger pangs and for a while this post made me forget them. Don’t take me wrong, my resolve is undeterred. It feels good to share it though. ☺
Meanwhile I got this image in a forward. Isn’t it cute? I showed it to A and he waived it off without any reaction as if it had no value whatsoever. Hmpf! 😐
