I have always been called a drama queen, a nautanki, a dramebaaz – though I don’t have a clue why.
Of course years ago I did declared that my whole life was ruined because my mom didn’t buy me an anchor cross stitch set.
And yes I do give the husband dialogues of how he will miss me when I am dead and gone when he chooses to stare at the TV rather than pay heed to what I am saying.
But that’s like normal human behaviour now isn’t it?
So anyway, the mater had many years ago started calling me Meena Kumari and while recounting my baby tales has let others very kindly know that I was/am a Meena Kumari.
Whatever. Talk of rumours spreading. No basis at all.
Anyway it would seem that Meena kumari ka aulaad (meena’s kumari’s offspring) has arrived on the scene and threatens to take away my title.
The elf declares tragic expression in place that the scratch on his hand is the worst in the whole world and that it will never ever go away for all his life. The scratch is reminisced months after the skin has grown back with same tragic expression on face.
And God forbid any living being dead or alive was involved in causing the said scratch. The poor person shall live on in bad books till kingdom come
Much like the boy who whacked him on the birthday. Any discussion on the elf’s bad behaviour has him bringing up with a very sad expression how that boy hit up and that too in his birthday.
And quite often I have been diverted from what we are discussing and drawn into a conversation of how it was not good of said boy to hit him.
He accuses me of never ever taking him swimming if I miss a day or how I am always late to pick him up if by mistake I am a couple of minutes late for the bus.
The performance standards of motherly behaviour have to be A-ok else I am immediately rated with an F grade.
So in addition to all things that are good in his looks and personality – I have also conferred on my son a great deal of dramebaazi and dealing with it is bringing about in me a deep sense of sympathy for myself.
Oh wait didn’t I start off by declaring I am not a drama queen.
Ironically while i was categorising my post I realised I had created a category called drama queen
This is part of the #AtoZchallenge for April . Unofficially of course Coz I didn’t know of the challenge till late but whatever 🙂
