This has been the most eventful birthday I ever had! Dammit I had to wait until I hit FIFTY to have so much fun. Like it is said “The game ain’t done until you are dead and gone!” I will have really make special efforts to top this one. May be. Knowing me, may be it will happen by itself.
Fun is one of those auto-combustion things. You just stir stuff together or put them in close vicinity to each other …. BOOM! It happens. Good food+alcohol+siblings=weekend of pure unadulterated happiness.
I have a cousin who lives in England – arrey vohi, apna vilayat! He’s 26th Feb born. We were together in February after the time when I was 15 and he was 17. Since he was going back on 23rd, I called him and a few cousins over for a weekend together. We simply had a blast! Will post pictures separately, but it really was a pity that we had only Saturday and Sunday together. You know Kid#1 and his wife had a party on their wedding anniversary, and they treated me like senior citizen! It was like,” okay Mom eat your dinner by eleven and go to sleep. Its late” Dammit people, I am not a doddering senile! I can hold my booze, am toilet trained and mentally solvent. I really will not embarass you! Ah the arrogance of youth! It was good to show ’em that us old people also know how to party! So what if I am minus a few parts, my budday sibling is bald now, the elder ones snore in between drinks, gags and conversation. When it comes to it, we know how to enjoy.
Monday had me sleepwalking through work! Just as I was recovering, it was Wednesday.
Woke up on budday morning with a call from an old pal. “Abbey, why weren’t you born yesterday?”
Me : Kyun?
He : Then you would have been the Ambani Matriarch
Me : Looking at the time : 7 a.m. Who the fuck says matriarch at 7 a.m I ask ya????? Kaise?
and snuggling into my quilt
He : Abbey she has two sons so do you, and she was born on 24th Feb
Me : Thanks for the budday wishes …….
He : Oh I forgot! Happy Birthday
Me : Growl! Go away! I’ll ring you back when I am fully awake!
He : Snigger Snigger
Why are all my friends insane? Or is it something to do with me ?
At office, a lot of people wished me. I even got flowers. Its nice to be pampered heh! But of course there are bitchy people. Sometimes men are more bitchy than women
A creep came to wish me
Creep : Happy Birthday Madam, kitney saalon ke ho gayi ho? Smirk Smirk
Me : Seventy …. and to ensure that he heard it right I added Sattar! Pher puchenga teh Assi!!!
For Gods sake!
I am old enough to eat, smoke, drive and drink! What do you know, I can vote too!
Happy 50th to me 😀
