Two conversations in the space of two days that simply floored me. Do all 2 year olds talk like this?
Appa to N: N, we’ll go home and have curd-rice now.
N: No Deuta, we’ll go to Chutney’s restaurant and have idlis there.
< I think my idea of eating out was a samosa or two on the way to my grandmom’s place until, like, the age of 15 maybe. The times, they are a changing>
Me to N: Okay, you want to play at home or go downstairs and play.
N: Ma, I want to so SHOPPING!
< Again, when we were kids, shopping was not a happy thing. It was a thing Ma and Deuta had to do so we could eat. And clothes shopping – why, that happened twice a year, at Bihu and Durga Puja>
I suppose I have only myself and Appa to blame for this !
