(if Nina bored you earlier don’t bother)
Here’s what happened when my 1st proper Nina-like situation happened :
On Saturday i’ll be going out in the evening..we have our freshers party..
(I’m all prepared to launch my ‘I am in college now..you can’t stop me’ argument) but I am cut short..
Mom: Don’t tell me anything..take permission from the headquarters.
Arre but…she’ll say no or she’ll tell me to ask you guys..i know it..I dunno anything..im old enough in college now..and you don’t need to worry about conveyance..will manage that while coming back..just need to get dropped at friend’s place at 6 pm..
Mom: i don’t have any problems…go if she gives u permission.
Now I’m not talking bout 9 o clock here…Atleast 11 pm mom..its Freshers come on..its Our party..no one comes back home at 9 and besides we’re going to C9,i won’t come back early..tell Her and tell dad..(now they’re not sup2 know about the booze party- my first ever..was quite excited about that one, didn’t know it would be a mess..err hilarious mess that time)
Mom: Do not involve me, take permission and go…when have i said no (yeah thats their favourite line)
Grannydear: Where do u have to go?
(I repeat the entire case..obviously not mentioning stuff that would freak her out..and adding that i should be allowed till 11 pm..speak for a good 15 minutes..non stop..all my buttering, convincing skills put to use)
…And nobody will go back before 11 pm and my friend X’s car will be there to drop us (X was later on roaming around alone on the streets..drunk and managed to get home thanks to her bf’s friend..whom she doesn’t even speak to now..but thats not imp)
Grannydear: I will be downstairs in the 3rd floor..so mom wil open the door (At that time, i thought i couldn’t get luckier!) You will be back on time right?
Yes (Yesss !! yessss yesss) Obviously..Have i ever come back late? (this line works best if u have been a goody all ur life) It wont cross 11 at all..you don’t need to worry.there will 3-4 of us Girls coming back together (lololol these are the helpful lies people)
Grannydear: Shall we keep dinner for you..one roti? (good lord not the food routine again)
Its a parttyy, they will give us food..our seniors are having a party..for us..
Grannydear: Ok but you have to have milk at night…So both boys and girls will be there? (Now u must know how to tackle this one..)
Ok Ok fine I’ll have the milk (bahh) Yep all senior girls and boys…its a co-ed college, maa..if you think I’m not going to talk to boys then I’m sorry you are mistaken. Obviously everybody from our class will be there, and there are boys in our class, too. Don’t worry ever our professors will be there, we have called them also. (Thats not a lie…they don’t turn up is not our fault :p)
Grannydear: Hmmm ok…(ahh my first party..she was almost Sweet to let me go that easily..lol)
(I repeat few of the above lines…in my attempts to convince)
Now details about the party-ummm Lol some other day maybe..(now that would make Some story)
Mom: What time are you coming back home?
Ummm ts not even 10 now mom…I’ll leave at 10.30..
Mom: Are you mad?? How are you coming.whose car is there?
Ummm mostly X’s car should be there..if not i’ll cab it..there might be a few of us..i dunno (that is where i made a mistake-all confused answer)
Mom: What you’ll cab it at this hour…come back home right now..Just come in the next persons car..i don’t know just come back home..
Mom Whats happening to you..relax..I’ll come..ill try…10.15 ish
Mom: Just come back home, this instant..i Don’t know Supriya. Papa will get mad..
Arre but I’ve taken permission..he said its ok ..whats happening to you..why are you freaking out??
Mom(in a voice that is a mixture of scream,anger, nervousness..freaky kinds): I dont want to listen to anything, come back home by 10.
Now X has vanished…Seniors from my area have left..Nobody is going in that direction..people will leave in groups or will be picked by parents..and half of them are not even in their senses..
Guess I’ll cab it then…
Y: No don’t cab it alone- I’ll drop u in the cab..
Whats wrong with u dude..u stay in the opposite direction..i’ll manage..
Y: No no its not safe. Z joins in..-yeah he’s right..(half drunk senses popping in n out)
Whats wrong with u all..acting like my mom now.
Somehow get home minus cab (another story) at 10.05 pm..with sis dear teasing me with comments like ‘ur stinking’ (yes thank u say it a lil loudly..wake them up)
So in my Nina like case..the fall of the grandma leads to the rise of momma (I am just blessed with bad luck)
