A Place Called Home
Hey.. Peeps.. :) Last Saturday around 8:35 a.m. I landed in Lucknow, and I heard myself saying: yes! am almost home. Daddy was waiting out for me and before I saw him, he found me out. You look weak - remarked daddy. I: daddy! that's called slim, weak? Please! am a big girl, I mean strong girl. Yeah, that I can see -daddy (hiding smile that broke into a laugh).
Okay lets go home. He drove me home and I noticed all the changes in the city. It was good to be back. I rang the door bell (same old "ting-tong" boring bell, I always wanted my door bell to be customized to my favorite songs). Mom came running like a bullet. She opened the door, took luggage from my hands and kissed on my forehead. Mom! don't kiss me, everybody is staring -I snarled. You look weak - Aww! my baby. Mom! that's called slim, not weak -I explained. Is it? - she investigated, wondering. Yeah! - I shrugged.
So what you wanna have? -Mom asked. Mom, stop treating me like guests. I am home, lemme feel like coming home. I am not hungry. - I said. Yeah? Look at me and say -she said back to me. Darn! (moms, donno what kinda sensors they have to detect what I am up to and what I feel like.) -I said to myself. In mean time sister also came and hugged me. Please stay away or I'll die of claustrophobia -I teased her. I stepped in my room, it was decorated -balloons, teddies, flowers and all. I loved it.
That was how my welcome was -simple, lovely. I love simple things. My sister prepared a slideshow on all my memories and changes made in my home. She sent that to me long back, but because of old version of software I couldn't open that. I finally saw it at home -heart touching. I am having all my favorite food. Till last Friday, I was 52 kgs. Now I can bet when I'll be back to Bangalore I'll add some 3-5 kgs. One more benefit of being back to home is that your salary account is so untouched that you apparently forget your pin number. I came with one bag here, and mom has planned to send me with two. Moms again! :P
As per my promise to myself -I told my mom that I tried vodka in Bangalore, twice. And as per my belief -she accepted that. :) Personally I don't like the taste -Yuck! Why people drink -Gawd knows! Anyways, yesterday was friendship day so how could I miss wishing Duplicate happy friendship day? So I just bought a friendship band -and it was 8:00 p.m. when I drove to her place and tied the band and gifted her the cross -she was so fond of and asked me to get one from Bangalore.
