Shut Up Aunty !

By Tuesday, November 06, 2012

It's been a crazy weekend, I finally got home and there was a big family reunion. It's always great to meet old relatives -cousins and 'aunties' , although I am really not sure about the aunties part.
I hate being questioned by these aunties especially when you can't figure out how they are related to you. It's like they come out of no where and start attacking before you can find a way to escape


Aunty : Beta pehchana
In my mind :No I don't know who the hell are you so I am just going to pretend I know you and try to slide out of the conversations
What I say : Ofcourse aunty, how can I not remember YOU. Mom talks about you all the time


Aunty : You look exactly like your mother
In my mind :Yes, surprisingly she is my real mother. I doubt it sometimes but well, what can we do about it ?
What I say : Really? Thanks a lot aunty, if only I could be half as good as her


Aunty :You have all grown up since the last time I saw you.
In my mind :Did you really think I was a dwarf or had a curious case of Benjamin Button ? Also ,when was the last time you saw me ? Have we really met before ?
What I say : Oh yes I absolutely remember the last time we met.You should come visit more often. Everyone talks about you at home, all the time


Aunty : Which class are you in ?
In my mind : I am not in school anymore, get over it *beep beep*. Your stupid kid is in school
What I say : I passed out of school 3 years ago, which class is your son in ?


Aunty : You know our son was first in his class and got 95%
In my mind : And you really think I care ? What's his name again ?
What I say : That is remarkable, I always knew he was a great at studies. He's always so passionate about everything

Aunty :You should really start eating properly, you are getting so thin
In my mind :I am not 'getting' thin, I was always thin. May be you should ask your son to control his diet because I can see four tyres right through his tshirt
What I say :  *Nothing * Just smile, trying my best to hide my frustrations




Hope you had a better weekend
Ritika

  5. sigh.. I wish I HAD these kind of aunties... believe me. The ones I have indulge ( i kid u not ) in black magic , destroying their own kids weddings cos they dont like the brides THEY themselves chose etc.. compared to that, these kinda aunties are just sweety pies to me :)

  6. Typical Aunty talk :) but you managed it really well. I am an utter failure when it comes to small talk, I cover it up with a smile. So am well known among relatives & in-laws as a "girl who hardly talks but smiles a lot"

  21. My teenage cousin once asked why do aunties say 'beta inti badi ho gayi ho. Do they want me to stay small??' We just rolled on the floor listening to her quirky remarks!
    Sometimes when we need to make conversation we say the obvious and its funny. Lets just hope that when we grow older we remember these things and dont make a fool of ourselves!

  23. Its good to know that it's like they come out of no where and start attacking before you can find a way to escape. Use Justdial Pune for local search.
