“Amma, I’m pregnant…”

…I tell my mother, showing her this pic.

And she says, “I doubt that you are pregnant. Are you really?”

“I don’t know, what does it look like?”, I say, showing her another similar pic.

“When did you get your last periods?” asks the shocked soul.

“I don’t know. It doesn’t matter now, does it?” I say, to add fuel to the fire.

“Ok fine. No point talking about all this now. Let’s go to a doc for a check-up and confirmation”, exclaims my anxious Amma.

And this was the cue for me to freak out…

“What the hell, no mother, I’m not pregnant. I was just joking.” I say, in an all panicky tone.

“Wait. What am I supposed to believe now? Let’s just go for a check-up to make sure, ok?”, says my concerned Mother.

“No Ammi, I was just posing for the pic, it’s just air between my tummy and my top. I’m not really pregnant. I was kidding.” I try to convince her. “I just wanted to see your reaction. I thought you knew me better; that you would know I was joking. Hmmm…”

“I knew, my dear. I knew you were joking and I just played along. You should have known better…” she says, with a wide grin on her face.

Oh well, the plan to shock my mother backfired. Now it’s Appa’s turn. But since I know for sure what his reaction would be, I won’t take that chance ;-)… The joke stops here :-).

      This is my favorite comment here 🙂 Ha h ah a ROFL!!! Like my daughter came with us for a Beauty Pageant, she was 14 or so, and the only thing that interested her was,
      “Their knees look so clean!”

      lol…clean knees, huh?…
