Elementary, Aunt OJ

26 Oct

My nephew D-Cubed will turn 3 next month and two of his favorite things to do are:

1) Iron (it’s a toy I got him from Mothercare, before you call child services!)

2) Call me and chatter about the inmates of his residence

which has me believe he’s a middle-aged hausfrau in a spindly boy’s body, but never mind that.

He also specializes in stating the obvious, like so:

D-Cubed: Hellooooooo? OJ? Mummy stomach is paining, Daddy having a bath.

OJ: And what are you doing?

D-Cubed: Not having a bath.

What’s the going penalty for ditzy aunts?

    the penalty eh. i think under Tazeerat Hind Dafah 360 they want you to procreate and add to the adorable bubs genetic pool.

    Im all for women deciding about their bodies but mumbai needs more of the sane and less of the manoos types in recent times

    You know, Arjun is always looking for someone to talk to him.. since you seem to have so much practice at it already…. I will put you on speed dial, shall I?:-)

    dipali: He’s kinda grown into his cuteness, like a late bloomer, but he sure isn’t a wallflower no more!

    M4: I checked with Ditzy Aunt. She says bring ’em on.

    aneela z: Oh I think the manoos have done the city proud this election. Look at this–> http://www.indianexpress.com/news/marathi-manoos-should-explain-why-they-ditc/461574/

    Nitya: Harrumph. Another ploy not to visit South Bombay. Don’t think I don’t get it!

    Shivani: Once he masters his small alphabet, he just might. 😉

    It’s the lot of aunts to have nieces (and nevvies) state the obvious to them. Ask mine, I’m sure they’d sympathise with you.

    Sue: Really? I’ve never done any myself. But that could just be the case because I miss the obvious all the time.

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
