It's true that as people get older, they start acting more like children. They get naughtier, always seeking your attention and making a humongous fuss if you ignore their wants!
My grandmother (God bless her) is at such an age. She just watches her friends getting older and more sick which makes her kind of paranoid. I am sure she's got it inside her head on why her health isn't letting her down like others. She claims every now and then that she's feeling very tired and doesn't feel hungry but then goes on to consume Idlis, Rice, Mixture every one hour or so. This has turned out to be quite a joke in the family.
GMa (Grandma, for short... Yes! I am lazy!) has found out that her 'not feeling hungry' tactics weren't earning her any sympathy and has now resorted to even more absurd stories.
She now claims she has 'Chikungunya'. This we came to know only after she was talking through phone to one of our relatives :
GMa : Ayyooo Moley.. I am not feeling too well... Not feeling to drink or eat anything... On top of that I am not well... I have Chikungunya...
My mom and sisters who were lazing around doing nothing were suddenly not feeling lazy anymore after hearing their dear mother's conversation. They were eyeing each other with amazement and were suppressing giggles that were just waiting to burst out. Obviously, the person on the other end of the line was equally surprised which led my grandmother to illustrate the story further. And after the conversation -
Daughter 1 : Amma, you got CG? We didn't even know. Guess even I must have got it without knowing then. These things spread right ?
Other daughters burst out laughing and my dear Grandma just gives a grin and leaves the room.
Her another story bites the dust! ;)
Though she never admitted that she was bluffing, the whole thing was so cute that I can't stop myself from smiling whenever I picturize the scene. God bless my grandma and I hope she keeps us entertained for a long time to come! :)
Now, to the spicy part of the story! I have been awarded with the 'Honesty Award' by Raka & Nikhil. Thanks guys! This is how it looks like :
