Kids say the Darnedest Things :)

Yeah I know I've been away for a while. Haven't really been too busy, just been a bit lazy. Most of my time goes in finishing up a few pending assignments and didn't want to blog just for the heck of it....

Coming to the title of the post, don't you think kids today are much more cooler, smarter, whackier, sharper, blahblahblah-ber than you and me were at their age?

Why this sudden interest in things that kids say?? Well I am coming to that in a bit.

I finally had a hair cut. The summer was getting to my nerves and couldn't maintain the long step-feather-lazer cut (that's what my aunt calls it...I'm not sure what it was, but I loved it :P). I now have a full feather cut, and no I dont look like a "kabootar" or pidgeon as some of you may call.

So, my aunt runs this beauty parlour and she is the only person who I've gone to for every single thing since I can remember. Last saturday I decided I wanted to get my hair shorter so she suggested a change in the hair cut. Feather cut. After I said yes, we got down to business.

Another customer arrived in the mean-time with her 7 year old daughter. They wanted a haircut too and my aunt was busy cutting my hair (it took an hour and a half to do so...my hair length is less than half of what it used to be :( SIGH!! SUMMER!!!)

The mother wanted a U-cut. The girl snapped in and said "No Mamma, go for step cut". My aunt said to the little girl that she could get it done, and let her Mother get a haircut of her choice. To this, the girl replied., "No, I want to see how it looks on her and how well you cut. After that I will get my hair cut". 

At that age, my mom refused to let me grow my hair. Every few months, it was cut short. I think I took decisions on hair styles and cuts after I turned 16. I wondered, what would my mom tell me if I said something like that to her? :P Of course it was a different time...Tab hum masoom bachche the :P :P

The girl was wearing an poncho and every few mins she kept looking at herself in the mirror. Then suddenly she looked at her mom and said, "Mummy, Am I looking fat in this?". I dont know if I was amused or disturbed. Are kids these days getting much more conscious of their looks than their talents? Because this isnt an isolated case.

My 4-year old nephew, a few days ago, yelled out and said to me "Bua, I cant reach the wash basin. Lift me up so that I can wash my face". He looked spotlessly clean to me so the lazy me said, "You look fine, just go to tuition next door". His reaction was "Arre I need to wash my face....I need to look fair". He is, what I call, a male-version of snow white. I couldn't help but smile.

Kids these days :)

P.S : Erratic posts to continue for a while. Will try my best to read as many posts as I can. Hope everyone is doing well :)

P.P.S: I Met Renu aunty, my blog mother :) Had a real good time :)

    ur post reminded me of my friend's daughter..only 4 year old and she wants only long hair no cuts, was saying...apne to lambe rakhenge, mere boy cut kara diye a, ab main nahi kat waaongi:), was surprised to see such a young girl having ideas:)

  1. Rakesh said...:

    Yup definitely, kids are a lot smarter these days. I never knew haircuts were for looking good. I thought we cut hair, so that we didn't get kicked out of school, just like we had to cut our nails and polish our shoes...

    U bet.. the funniest I have experienced first-hand is this: My neighbor's son is 4 year old and he was going through my brother's marriage album. He saw me sitting with my sister-in-law. The little monster says, "Aap kyun baithe ho yahan, ye aapki wife thode na hai. Ye toh Bade chahcu ki wife hai. Unko baithna chahiye apni wife ke saath." Now, how the hell he knows what is wife, husband, whose wife is who and all that.. and it doesn't end there. He is a gone case. Embarrasses the whole neighborhood at drop of pin..

    my 3and half yr old nephew who has lived half his life in India and half in US needs a DVD player to entertain himself n he knew how to operate it when he was nt even 2...he needed a mobile to pep him up while crying....

    and in my cousin's wedding this chap was instructing teh DJ to play Dhoom songs so that he cud dance on them!! he was 2 then :)))
