Meet The Parents!

Send Love CardsMegan and I go for long walks in summer, whenever time permits and on one of those walks we hit upon a beautiful idea.

Throwing stones!

Yup! You see, I can’t walk the park jus’ enjoying the feel of the grass on the foot… I thought it would be fun to throw stones and measure up the distance to decide the winner.

And so we began… A few pebbles and stones later, I hit up on a solid rugged stone and threw with all my might… The stone flew like a dream and Meggy squealed in delight….And then a shriek and a scream. Shriek from Megan and scream from, well, an old man on his evening walk in the Central Park; I presume the stone should’ve landed smack on his head. It took me exactly 5 minutes 3 seconds to reach my abode. Yup! All I did was get a glimpse of the screaming old man and I scooted. I felt sorry for the man though, but to be frank I was pretty scared when he stared at me in wild anger!

Hit the bed for a power nap and woke up late for an appointment. Well, the appointment was that I had to go to Aaliyah’s place to meet her parents for the first time and I was nervous. This is important, I knew, and attired right. Flipped open my phone to give her a call and she coolly reassured me everything would be alright. On reaching her house, I gave her the flowers and she bid me in with a peck on my cheek. Ambience was great what with country music playing and the cool furniture.

Well, I met her mom, who was very sweet, and we chatted a bit and moved to the dinner table, when her dad arrived and joined us. We sat for dinner and offered Grace, our heads bent down in prayer… In a minute everyone was up and ready to hold the fork and knife while I was still down…

Aaliyah… Waited for a while, nudged me, and whispered…

“Bob, you never told you were so religious?!”

“Well, I never remember you telling me that your dad goes for a walk in the Central Park either!”

  1. B. When I saw the riots on TV, I asked, Why? Who is behind it and how are they getting stronger? Will it be stopped? How?
    It is frightening and it is only a few thugs doing it. Just like in history. Only took small groups to get the people up. These people see no future- only the present. They don’t care if they take everyone down with them. Hatred rules. They want the world to burn.

  2. What has happened in UK is reminding us that the younger generation is becoming intolerable and behaving like the human beings in the stone ages. Vandalism, ransacking and destroying public property just cannot be termed as protest. It is something very serious.This type of tendences force us to say that more attention from the parents side towards their wards. The younger generation should be made more aware of the social responsibilities and the art of co-existence and tolerence.
