A Questionable Exchange
Vijay: 'So Peanut also has to have a vaccination today, apart from the twins?'
Y: 'Didn't I tell you that already last night?'
Vijay: 'Which one does she have to have?'
Y: 'Arrey, Chickenpox only. It's at four years and one year. What else?'
Vijay: 'What time is the appointment?'
Y: 'Ten forty five. How many times do I have to tell you the same thing?'
Vijay: 'You think she'll actually get the vaccination?'
Y: 'Do we have a choice in the matter?'
Vijay: 'Have you noticed you're being a little snappy?'
Y: 'Have you noticed this entire conversation is in questions?'
Vijay ( tuneless singing) 'Mama is a cheap-o...cheap-o...cheap-o...'
Y (annoyed even more than before) 'What are you doing, Vijay?'
Vijay: 'I'm just breaking out of the questioning mode. (Continues to sing) Mama is a cheap-o...cheap-o...cheap-o....'
And yes, we had quite a day. Chickenpox vaccinations for three small children, and plus the treatment of 2 cavities for young Peanut.
I'm amazed I can spend a Saturday like this and feel so happy about it.
