Pranks...

As most of you would know, I have an Older sister, Veena who is very very naughty (even till this day). So she plays pranks on me very frequently and I rarely get to pay her back.

Then there was this day.

We both were sitting on my bed and arguing over something ( I don't even remember what it was now). She wanted something that I had and I wouldn't give it to her. I remember holding it really tight and close towards my body and Veena trying to snatch it.

After few minutes of fighting, we had strict rules about fighting:
- No pulling hair as she had nice long hair and I had short hair, so I had an advantage
- No scratching each other's faces - We girls had to look pretty
- No matter what happened no complaining to parents

So we were fighting by our rules and then finally Veena's nails scratched my eye. I felt this burning sensation and I covered my eye and yelled out "My eye My eye."

Veena stopped what ever she was doing, and made my take my hand off my eye. I told her that it was hurting. She is a very caring sister and she ran to get some cold water to rinse my eye. She came back with some water and I was still sitting with my hand covering my eyes.

She finally made me move my hand and yelled "I can not see, Oh my god I can not see with this eye."

Veena sat there speechless all teary eyed and screaming "Are you sure?". "Wash your eyes again". I couldn't hold my self anymore, I burst out laughing I was kidding, I can see well.

Well, I almost got killed that day.

For all those worried souls, my sclera (the white part of my eye) got scratched and I had a red mark on it for a week. But the joy that little red scratch brought me was just priceless.

Even today I call Veena once in a while and yell over the phone, "I can not see, OMG I can not see"

Movie Update:

  • Omakara - Was kind of slow, I liked it, even though I had read Othello and seen the Malayalam version.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead man's Chest- was a nice watch. Towards the end, left so many thing unfinished that you know a sequel is coming soon.
  • Running scared - Very nice movie, but now for the week hearted, lot of bloodshed, lot of cursing
I know I saw a lot more movies, don't seem to recall them though :(

:-) sibling fights & pranks ... we always tend to sit & laugh about them much later, even though at the time, when it happened, it may have been the reason to stop talking for a whole day ! :-)
u both seemed to be loving when fighting too - u had rules for the fights ! wow !
movies - pirates - did u see the 'dead chest' one or 'curse of the black pearl' - either way it still has kiera knightly and thats what matters :-) i hv seen the 1st one - 'curse of the black pearl' - i liked it.

Hi
Today i finished reading ur entire blog(from office :):)).What can I do when they dont give me work).

I understand that Thanu is not ur real name and veena is also not real(name).That confused me.

Any way i enjoyed reading ur posts.There is a feel-good factor in ur writing.There are lot of similarities between ur "shekhar" and mine :)
I have actually forced my "shekar to read ur blogs".Not all but some of them.
I check Nina's post daily though i have not posted any comments till date.From last week i have started checking yours also.
So looking forward to ur blogs daily.
For now i Like to be anonymous
Keep blogging
