Time:10.00am
I realise that there's less than a pint of milk in the fridge.
I wrap myself with the hooded coat, scarf, gloves, boots what not. Plus wrap the child with all mentioned, and force him onto the pushchair.

Time:10.20am
All set to go.

Time:10.30am.
Back from the shop with the milk can. Found panju sleeping, so quickly gave it a thought. Because I'd like to spend more time out, than getting ready to go out whenever possible, I decided to shop for a ball for the child, something I wanted to do, ever since he started walking. How simple does that sound? So I first went into the local supermarket. They turned me down and suggested toysrus (exclusive toy shop). At toys r us, they only had basket ball or football, which even I found it hard to lift. I showed my child and told them I'm buying for him. With a big grin she said "I know what you're looking for" and went in and brought a huge packet full of blue and green, pink and orange balls. "I'll have the orange one please", I said. "No darling, they come in packs of 100.. we don't sell them in singles!". I don't need 100s of them cluttering my house. Thankuverymuch. So I went straight into this corner Chinese shop, and bought this one monster of a ball. Hope its not too small for a 15 month old;)

Smita said...

lol!!! I didn't even think of that :D am an innocent u see :P

BTW What does the title mean?? bbtt!!!

Bouncing-Bubble said...

Smit:) the title is a dialogue from a film... the dialogue delivery should hv been in a really distressed and shocked tone, but the way the actor spoke the sentence only made everyone find it humourous.. the sentence became so popular that it even became ringtone... thats a kind of remark made whenever someone is kind of fed of something..sorry I can't answer briefly u see, can only write essays.

Simplest of the things are toughest to get. The ball looks very nice and colourful. As long as its not heavy, its good.
