Moral Of The Story - Curtains Are Not To Be Trusted ?

I couldn't have asked for a weirder family.

What can you make out from this -

And this ?

Any guesses ? I am sure even if you had some ideas in your mind, you would have never guessed what I am about to reveal.

My mom (God bless her) does this every night. She always keeps something or the other in front of the curtains because apparently she thinks curtains are things which are not to be trusted. They are to be kept in check (using CD bags and books) so that they don't "open up" and reveal her daughter who sits inside behind these curtains, till the wee hours of the morning.

I, seriously, have no clue why she does this. On asking she told me that the curtains were unreliable, that they would give my private space away.... that too at night! Tauba tauba... Paranoia at its max, you can say! ;)

One day I thought enough was enough, and decided to hide the Harry Potter book you saw in the first pic.

Next day, she got a huge blue file (which looked incredibly funny, I feel so sorry I couldn't take a pic of that one).

Then, I hid the file.

After that, she got a photo album.

I hid the album.

Next day, she got a CD bag.

I gave up!

I realized whatever I end up hiding, she will find something to replace it with.

I can give an entire list here of things she's paranoid of. For example, she keeps glass and other breakable items atleast at one arm's distance from me coz... you might have figured out why. She believes I have the tendency to break or spoil everything that gets into my hands or comes in my way. I wouldn't blame her. Usually, I do :P

With all her paranoia, my mom is as interesting as a character can be. I usually end up giving her small surprises on special days. But unfortunately, this time around I couldn't because of unfamiliarity with the new surroundings. Hopefully next time (all fingers crossed)!

Belated Happy Mother's Day to all of you who had a grrrreat time with your mommies and made them feel special on their day!


  1. She should have just used a charm from the HP book :-)

  6. lol..didn't think your family was this weird when i read the first para..these stuffs guard you from an invi haunter?? wow!! interesting :P..

  7. My mom, once she gets to dusting the home, she can see the kinds of dirt which is not visible to our eyes. She tells that we have eyes on back of my head.
    Breaking things, my mom is THE SAME. She thinks that nothing will stay in my hand for long. That is why, i am not allowed too much into kitchen
    Nevertheless, I love my mommy! I tell you, people who make fun of their mothers maximum love them the most. I am sure you are in the same category :-)

  11. nice description but hey, which of these objects did the curtain like? you should probably consult it and ask if a clip or velcro would do!
    parents do have their own way of showing concern. great.

    hiding away the pearl from greedy eyes...I guess I am not gonna blame her :P

  14. Do you have the habit of venturing out in the night giving a fright to others in a state of sub-consiousness?:D
    The curtains may be a check for that.....
    Install a camera with motion-sensor for bringing out the devil in you in frames (& keep the curtains wide open after your Mom is asleep):D :P
