Adore or Ignore ????
(I thought translating the dialogue into English would not convey the essence of the conversation. And I know the limited readership of my blog includes just two guys who can't understand Tamil. To those two guys : In case you happen to read this post and in case you are curious to know the meaning, send me a mail)
Getting my daughter to sleep is the toughest task in the entire day. She will have a hundred things to say and a million questions to ask. I will have to listen patiently to her anecdotes and answer her queries, all the time reminding her it was well past her bed time. Last night, when all my efforts to keep her quiet failed, I switched on my Mobile and made her listen to her favourite song from the movie 'Mozhi.' That kept her quiet for exactly 1 minute. And then it started:
Abi: Amma, movie -la andha ponnu peru Archana dhane ...
Abi: Ava nija peru enna?
Amma: Jyotika, ok ippo thoongu ...
Abi: Amma, ava kamal dhane marriage panni kitta?
Amma: :) Illa Surya
Abi: Andha innoru ponnu peru enna?
Amma: Swarnamalya - seri, thoongu da ...
Abi: Ava yaara marriage pannikitta?
Amma: Ava marriage pannikale..
Abi: Appo baby?
Amma: No baby for her
Abi: Appadi kooda irukalama? Appo naanum marriage pannike poradhu illa. Enakku boys pidikadhu. I adore boys.
Abi: Adore na enna amma?
Amma: Romba pidikum
Abi: Ayyo, appo I ignore boys. I hate them.
Amma: :) (thinking... hmm seri seri, naan kooda appadi dhan solli kittu irundhen ..)
