After discussing about overcoming our driving fears at RS’s blog, I declared at home yesterday about this challenge. Mantam were more excited than me and agreed to wake up early in the morning also to keep mum while I tried to drive.
Last night when we hit our beds, Abbas started fiddling with his mobile.
Mannu calls out from her cot – “Baba, what are you doing in your mobile?”
Abbas – “I’m playing a game”
Mannu – “Don’t play any games Baba. Just sleep or else you won’t be able to wake up early in the morning”
Abbas – @#!$%#!$
Early in the morning, I woke up with a shudder when Mannu shakes and wakes me up…
Mannu – “Mamma, get up, get up quickly… You need to learn driving na?
Me – “Uh, oh… Why don’t you wake your Baba up? I can’t learn on my own unless he gets up”
Mannu – “I told Baba not to play games last time. He didn’t listen to me”
Abbas murmurs under his breath – “I wasn’t able to manage one, there is one more in the making!!!”
I retorted – “Oh yeah, you wished for our offsprings to be like me… That is why they say to be careful when you wish for something… It might just come true! Go figure now…”
