I was out walking with my 4 year old daughter. She picked something up off the ground and started to put it in her mouth.
I took the item away from her and I asked her not to do that.
“Why?” my daughter asked.
“Because it’s been on the ground, you don’t know where it’s been,it’s dirty and it probably has germs”, I replied.
At this point, my daughter looked at me with total admiration and asked, “Mommy, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart.”
I was thinking quickly, “All moms know this stuff. It’s on the Mommy Test.
You have to know it, or they don’t let you be a Mommy.”
We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information.
“OH…I get it!” she beamed, “So, if you don’t pass the test, you have to be the daddy.”
“Exactly”, I replied back, with a big smile on my face.

by all means.
He is an NRI, so charge him in dollars… and make sure the case hovers around for decades.
thanks for the tip…NRIs are the ‘favored’ kind 🙂 as for case dragging on..need u ask?
u will do really good in this trade… my god u leave no opportunity for soliciting your clients.
ha ha..make hay while the sun shines 😛
no wonder u lawyers have such a big fan club… u r the stars, the lead acters (ess) of all jokes…
hey pegasus..now do I see an hint of jealousy there 😛
naah naah… u be in the limelight.. while i like
“Therapeutic anonymity”. of the online life
who said I cant enjoy both 😛
that is one big problem in being a celebrity /public figure… there will be too many people watching u…
everybody will try to ape ur move, and try to interpret the meaning of each and every move u make….
remember ash-abhishek’s wedding?
u cannot have the cake and eat it too. 🙂
as charles (prince) said ‘why shd i feel sorry for being a celebrity’..I enjoy the attention.
and as for //“Therapeutic anonymity”. of the online life// ..I dont need therapy..just anonymity 😛
Yes Price Charles very rightly emphasized that one should not be sorry what he/she is. That poor guy is imprisoned in the glass house.
so u r an “Anonymous Celebrity” =))
then chatrooms, blogs and online life is just what u need.
hey Pegasus..I said I want both 😛
will check the link though 🙂
thats what I am saying…. u want the flexibility of being an normal homely girl and a much sort after celebrity…
ohh that link is a very serious analysis about the origin of that term.
//u want the flexibility of being an normal homely girl and a much sort after celebrity…//
why should it be mutually exclusive 😛
the holy grail u seek has eluded almost every public figure…
best of luck for ur search
yeah..i understand when u say ‘search’..it is afterall dependant on many factors 🙂
Thanks a tonne , Pegasus 🙂
first u need a fan club which idolizes you….
then we will find a way to ensure they do not intrude in your privacy

ya..first i’d need a good manager 😛
Have a great friday , Pegasus 🙂
see yaaa 🙂
there is no dearth of MBA in this part of the globe…. that should not be a big problem
I dont go by these degrees ..its the aptitude that’s important 😛
so can u risk an important job as ur PR manager to a guy like me who has no idea what it is about… no credentials and formal education????
//needs brawns as much as brains//
i thought it was a civilized respected job
yeah..I agree..but let me wait till the celebrity part works out 🙂
Send me the newspaper clippings whenever u take your walk.
let me guess Page 3?
PS: i cleaned up some clutter
Lets hope it wont be such a flop that I need to ‘send’ it to u 😉
and Thanks !
Actually I try not to expose myself to garbage… so that includes all News and Hindi Soaps channels, Times of India all most other places where ur are most likely to make headlines.
nehow have u watched “u got mail”…. i wonder how things would be if such a thing happens in reality?
//all most other places where ur are most likely to make headlines.//
Dont be so sure , Pegasus…life has some interesting twists and turns 🙂
“u’ve got mail” ..I have a vague idea..please enlighten me 🙂
//life has some interesting twists and turns :)//
yups and that is what makes it so interesting.
//“u’ve got mail”//
Its a Meg Ryan Movie…. and like all her other movies, one of my favorites. The story is about a girl who has a very close online friend, but has no idea who he is in rea life… infact she hates him to the core for driving her out of business.
//yups and that is what makes it so interesting//
//i wonder how things would be if such a thing happens in reality?//
Dont know how the movie ends .
But I guess one shd have an open mind.
Que sera sera…. 🙂
//Dont know how the movie ends .//
its a romantic feel good movie… so ofcourse they patch up and live happily every after…. (till a lawyer does them apart 😉
//But I guess one shd have an open mind.//
//Que sera sera…. //
thats a new and a wonderful phrase..
added to my dictionary…
but I still believe a man likes to be feel that he is in control of his destiny and guiding it to the destination.
//(till a lawyer does them apart //
lol.. u have COD 😛 :))
//thats a new and a wonderful phrase..//
//but I still believe a man likes to be feel that he is in control of his destiny and guiding it to the destination//
Then dont think abt the movie once u leave the theater 😛 :))
//lol.. u have COD :))//
It shd read ‘OCD ‘ not ‘COD’ .
So, now u have OCD 😛 :))
//It shd read ‘OCD ‘ not ‘COD’ .//
actually COD (call of duty) makes more sense then OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder)
So u have taken it up as ur duty !
Whatever triggered that ?
//Whatever triggered that ?//
i am not that trigger happy.
Fine…so what makes u happy? OCD ?
:)) u can call me by whatever name that charms u
I was’nt calling u names , Pegasus 😛 :))
But if u insist..well..
‘Pegasus ‘ sounds good 🙂 and suits u 😛
//‘Pegasus ‘ sounds good 🙂 and suits u :P//
yups… after forcing a flying horse to live like moles… you can definitely say that.
ahaaaa..I thgt u went there on a mission :))
Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned!!
survivial was my mission
Now that we know u r ok….
Just tell me this Pegasus..what happened to the moles 😛 :))
Hey ,this is ur 50th comment 😛
so where is the treat 😛
how about a ice-cream at corner house.
come claim and it.. the next time u visit Bangalore…
as for the moles… they disappeared the day Jaswant Singh published his book “A call of honor” so the stay was comfortable and a refreshing change.
//come claim and it.. the next time u visit Bangalore…//
I knew there’d be a catch 😛
I’ll settle for a nice joke 🙂
//so the stay was comfortable and a refreshing change.//
oh..so glad to hear that 🙂
The surface-lings enjoyed the absence too :))
As for the moles its a case of the frying pan or the fire 😛 =))
Hey Pegasus..Please get back !
Its Monday and the moles want to get back to work :))
i never knew they worked 5 days a week.
but that now u have presented a strong case for them… will relook at the matter
//i never knew they worked 5 days a week//
yeah..they are Engineers :))
they have all the fun 🙁
ya.. who knows maybe some beavers would have outsourced them to work on their next big thing.
I did’nt hear any moles complaining about
the beavers !
how many moles do you know?
and who do you think takes care of the backend and dirty chores while beavers are out building massive dams?
Not many I shd confess..
But are’nt these chores stepping stones to dam building someday ?
//But are’nt these chores stepping stones to dam building someday ?//
ya, but it is the masters who will take all the credit for building the taj mahal
while the engineers will have their thumbs chopped off.
Do u think this may teach those mean masters a lesson or two ?
i thought the link says… how an engineer jumps from one company to another.. just to end up in an abyss.
he, like your little moles are doomed.. no matter how hard they work, they will end up in obscurity.
If this does’nt work , what will?
If one’s absence is not felt or feared , then one shd not complain.
//If this does’nt work , what will?//
jai jawan, jai kisan, jai vigyan.
//If one’s absence is not felt or feared , then one shd not complain.//
i never heard the moles complaining.. they are happy and contented with their nice cosy lifestyle… they are the masters of the entire underworld…
nehow… i do not know where we are going with this discussion… do u have a clue?
