Random childhood memories...

Being pushed into a six foot well by a 6 year old… a strong six year old. Pri was 10 at the time. Pri’s dad rushed out when he heard the splash and saved drowning Pri...followed by a tight slap. After which Pri bawled and complained to mummy that daddy had hit her. She didn’t jump in voluntarily you know…Dad felt bad later and took Pri shopping which delighted Pri!

The bee stinging episode… I was at this picnic with a bunch of old people at Tippagondanahalli. Suddenly were surrounded by bees. This one old lady gets stung and later throws up and out come a couple of her teeth… or so I heard. I didn’t actually witness this thankfully.

Boy comes to ‘see’ akka for marriage purposes. Kids giggling: “Do you like him ka?”
Akka: “um He’s a little fat no? But otherwise ok.”

Being dragged to random parties with mum and dad, parties I hated going to and being made to sing songs for the aunty/uncles present who would applaud and pinch my cheeks as soon as I was done. I was the annoying kid asking the silly riddles. “Uncle, Constantinople is a very big word. Can you spell it?” and of course silly uncle pretending to not know the joke makes fake attempt to misspell the word which amuses Pri, “Nooooooooooo, it’s spelled I T, it, you know cause I asked you if you could spell it? Heeeeeeeeeeee”
Pri now feeling super smart: “Uncle what is black and white and red all over?”
Uncle:”um a zebra with chicken pox?”
Pri in peals of laughter “Nooooooooooooooo, a newspaper. (Read all over, not red all over)

Yeah that was me. I don’t know how my parents didn’t throw me in front of a train or something!!!
