Joke time :)

Long time since I posted anything funny.

Here’s a joke, keeping the holiday season in mind.

Enjoy 🙂


Little Johnny’s Christmas

It is near the Christmas break of the school year. The students have turned in all their work and there is really nothing more to do.

All the children are restless and the teacher decides to have an early dismissal.

Teacher: “Whoever answers the questions I ask, first and correctly can leave early today.”

Little Johnny says to himself “Good, I want to get outta here. I’m smart and will answer the question.”

Teacher: “Who said ‘Four Score and Seven Years Ago’?”

Before Johnny can open his mouth, Susie says, “Abraham Lincoln.”

Teacher: “That’s right Susie, you can go home.”

Johnny is mad that Susie answered the question first.

Teacher: “Who said ‘I Have a Dream’?”

Before Johnny can open his mouth, Mary says, “Martin Luther King.”

Teacher: “That’s right Mary, you can go.”

Johnny is even madder than before.

Teacher: “Who said ‘Ask not, what your country can do for you’?”

Before Johnny can open his mouth, Nancy says, “John F. Kennedy.”

Teacher: “That’s right Nancy, you may also leave.”

Johnny is boiling mad that he has not been able to answer to any of the questions.

When the teacher turns her back Johnny says, “I wish these b***** would keep their mouths shut!”

The teacher turns around: “NOW WHO SAID THAT?”

Johnny yelled, “TIGER WOODS”. SEE YOU NEXT YEAR !”

No more a ‘baby’


How time flies….

Opened Gmail to find the regular mail updates from Babycenter.com . Here’s what it says  :-

No more a 'Baby'

So, officially, the babies are now ‘Toddlers’.

The twins, being preemies, turned toddlers last month. But I still refer to them as babies. Because thats what they will always be.

To me , at least 🙂

But the babycenter reminder comes as a jolt. The babies are growing up and they will now be addressed as toddlers. And what after that?? Pre-schoolers? Play-groupers? 1st graders??

How nasty do these titles sound??

So I’m being an ostrich and hiding from the fact that the kids are growing up. That within a year they will start talking and making friends. Start playgroup and get a life.

Somehow, I like being an ostrich.  Its better this way. To not see that the more your babies grow up, the more they become independent, the further they go away from you.

Philosophical I have become lately.

Not a good thing I tell you…..it makes you take the path of thought you would rather not.

As for the babies, they find joy in whatever new they learn, do.

So why should I grudge them their freedom to run riot ?

Thats what babies, oops!! Toddlers are supposed to do, right?

How Do they do it??

…..lose the post pregnancy weight, I mean.

Am so jealous right now!!!

Just look at this woman (Tara Sharma) when she was pregnant with her first child :-

Tara Sharma : Before


And just four months after the pregnancy, she turns up looking like this :-

Tara Sharma : After


Where did all the FAT go?? Where??

(I agree there wasn’t much of it to begin with, but still!!)

So I agree she indulged in exercising and attributed the weight loss to ‘being size zero before pregnancy ‘ . But then, how could nature treat her so differently from me?!!!

I mean, just look at the amount of weight I had put on in 8 months and 3 day’s time (also , it was the night before the C-sec ) :-

My baby bump....Errr....Mountain???

Ok, so yeah, its nowhere close to the dainty baby bump sported by Ms.TS.

I was huge. F-A-T. Each arm was close to “Dhai-kilo” and the lesser said about the legs, the better!!

I dare not even try to put up a snap of how I look now. Suffice to say, people mistake me for being pregnant.  Again. Some have even asked me directly when I’m due 😦 . 

I have attempted to lose weight. Seriously. Even bought an exercycle. Tried my best to be on a strict diet. Avoided rice (shudder)…and yet, yet, the rolls of fat cling on, like a baby monkey clinging on to its mamma…you know, the mamma need never hold the baby…it clings on that tight.

Thats how my fat loves me too. If only it didn’t 😦

And then I come across articles like the one above and it totally ticks me off!!

I mean, is this fate?? Am I destined to be forever FAT?? Is it my fault that I wasn’t ever slim to begin with!!

*gnashing my teeth in anger*

But Thank God for small mercies….we also get news like these  .

It kind of takes a wee bit of the guilt away…maybe someday, even I’ll be able to shed this weight.

There is hope for me…after all 😀
