Early birthday surprise


Mom: So how old will you be now?
Me: 27
Ma: So you'll be 30 soon. You know when your dad was 27 he had a son.
Me: I know mom that was me.

Mom: Dont you think it is now time we find you a friend.

At this point I get very confused.

Me: But mom I have a fair number of them already.
Mom: Ufff, Not your "those" friends. But a special friend.


I get very excited, its my birthday soon, maybe mom is planning to get me Asimo. WOW!! That would be some present.

Me: I like yor idea maa. I think its awesome.
Mom: Thats like my boy. So I'm sending you a picture. Let me know if you like it or not. Else we will send a different one.

Isnt my mom cool or what!! Even I didnt know that there are versions 1.0,1.1, 1.2 and 1.4 of Asimo. Maybe the latest version can not just walk around and talk shop, but press clothes as well. COOLOS !!

Me: Maa your the coolest mom in the world
Mom: Now now babai, dont be so hasty, take your time, this is just the first one, remember that you have plenty of options
.

And then i set the phone down and make a mad dash for the computer. And there it is, attachment size 1Mb. With bated breath and trembling fingers i click on the save picture button. This is it, my very own Asimo, hes coming up on screen.

But But, what is this. What the fuck happened to Asimo's sexy Star Warish attire?? How come Asimo is wearing a saree, how come Asimo has long hair and why the hell is Asimo smiling at me with that Soon-your-balls-will-be-mine look.

I go back to mom's email, surely this must be some kind of wrong attachment shes sent in:

Son,
The mantle of fulfilling the destiny of the Indian alpha male is now yours. Now, you my dear son will rise and do what your friends and your foes, your father and your forefathers and everyone else we know of within a 3000 mile radius and 150 year timeframe do best. The sacred baton is now passed to you. Choose well. Its time for you to be domesticated.

And then I saw those stars and I saw Orion the hunter, getting ready to hunt my ass down and nail it up on Barbaadi@shaadi.com
Me kaun hoo, me kaha hoo, Haa Me sach me jhantu hoo.

I think ths is the mother day effect on the moms. Even my mom decided to present me with an Asimo and point out pretty bluntly that Im on the wrong side of the 20s and so its time or HER to do something about that.
