Purani Genes

So, flashback to say 7-8 years ago. 

Cyn and Hero in the process of getting acquainted which involves some amount of smallish talk.

Cyn must have asked an innocuous "How was the day" to be met by a tirade about how that is such a lame question and how he finds females who ask such a question unoriginal and how he has devised a beautiful pithy reply to that viz."TOPS".

Cyn retires, much abashed.

Fast forward to now. 

Hero no 2  has just started nursery school (which happens to be the school which the Hero went to)

Hero (sentimental after looking at the tuck shop and the school diary) rushes home from office to eagerly ask the offspring "So how was school today?"

Hero no 2 laconically drawls  "Awright"

Hero's face? Priceless.

Genetics are very lovely (especially when they come back to the bite the spouse in the a**)

P.S. I am trying to get this up and running again and get into the flow of blogging. IS ANYONE READING DAMN IT?

Here's one reader popping up out of the woodwork. I'm wondering at your kid already starting nursery school. That's at age 4, right? How time flies.

Yay. People are still here. Good good.

But please to bear me with me. I HATE my posts these day, they sound so contrived and wotnot - so apologies for inflicting them on you. But figured the only way to come out of this writing slump is to write SOMETHING.

Lekhini - hes just turned three a couple of months ago. but yeah time flies. How have you been? It was so nice to see the 'imagined universe still up and running"

I'm reading again! After about three years, pliss to excuse :D

Also trying to write again, but that's easier said than done. Every time I settle down with my laptop baby Cyndbad knows it's time to use his Amma's left knee as a teether.
