Really Proud!!

>> Friday, March 20, 2009

They were both beaming with joy. He had scored 90 marks. Finally he had overcome all the obstacles and got to the top. He had been battling ridicule for so long, they were glad he finally got his due.
I just looked at them, wondering where I had failed them. No matter what I achieved, they didn’t seem to notice it anymore. May be I wasn’t trying hard enough…..





My parents’ reaction to reality show contestants’ marks is beyond my understanding. I don’t remember them reacting with so much pride even to my academic achievements (ok ok not that I gave them many chances ... but still!!)
As for me, let me quote Calvin “Reality continues to ruin my life." ;)

Hey I'm proud of your achievements. Srsly! The times when you bagged 1st prize for frog jump in UKG, the times when you topped for fancy dress competition as a baboon (I was impressed that you didn't actually needed any make-up for that).

With friends like me who appreciate your achievements, actually you should be the one who should be proud - for having such friends.

@deepti on silverine's advice: Now, don't listen to some nut-brain crones and leap before you look. I'm martial arts expert + karate black belt + arm-wrestling pro. Play with me and your number of bones will double and number of teeth will halve.

@deepti: Remember...empty vessels make the most noise. We are all behind you. Go for it!

@Mayz: Hey you my pal!!! :D

Deepti March 21, 2009 at 12:43 PM  

@Thomman: You were my co -competitor in all those competitions. I still remember it was you who won the fancy dress prize for the best dressed chimpanzee... my baboon didnt gather any eyeballs despite all my efforts. I disappointed my folks back then too.Yeah frog jump i was definitely better.. you couldnt manage a single jump :)

I am sure you are martial but dont underestimate the power of us women bloggers :D

Oh... my comment is longer that the post also :D

Deepti March 21, 2009 at 12:44 PM  

@xh: I know it is a "real"pain :D

@Swats: hehehe I can understand :)

Deepti March 21, 2009 at 12:46 PM  

@Silverine: I tried my best to whoop his a**e ;)

silverine March 21, 2009 at 1:32 PM  

@Deepti: ROFL!!! To good! High five gal!

thomman March 21, 2009 at 6:41 PM  

@deepti & silverine: I went out for a stroll, and look what happened in the mean time. Ya ya, hi five each other and be satisfied with that. Mammma is calling you 2 babies, it's time to eat Farex and kurukku. And I called you 2 "babies", not babes. (in case you misconstrued it)

P.S. Alright, peace! But I win
Naa na na Naa naa. Yo! :P

thomman March 21, 2009 at 6:46 PM  

@deepti & silverine: And I'm happy you took it in the right sense too. (unlike many who misunderstand bantering for sarcasm). :)

Ashish March 21, 2009 at 8:46 PM
