|The crazy munchkin.|
This morning at the breakfast table, Ri was licking a spoonful of Nutella after having his pancakes.
Me: Hey, Ri, do you know who else loves Nutella the way you do.
Ri: Yup, Nehru.
SSM and I both stared at each other.
Me, again: Erm. Who?
Ri: (with all his focus on the spoon) Nehru, Ma
Now this was getting really weird. So both SSM and I stopped eating stared at him for a moment. This needed further investigation.
Me: Hey, who exactly is Nehru?
Ri:(with a big sigh) Ma, Nehru, that guy in Sholay
And this was a new level of crazy even for me.
Me: What? Sholay? What was Nehru doing in Sholay"
Ri: He was Amitabh Bachchan.
And that is when it struck me. Because weird strikes the weird.
Me: Do you mean Veeru, Ri?
Ri: Ah yes, right, Veeru"
And then SSM and I had a difficult time controlling our ROFL.
SSM: But Amitabh bachhan was Jai, His friend was Veeru.
Ri: Oh. Okay.
Me: And how do you know that Veeru likes Nutella?"
Ri: Uh, Amitabh Bachhan like Nutella.
Well, really, there was no way I was going to ask for any more explanation to that.
So well, we shall just conclude that Amitabh Bachhan loves Nutella. And, maybe, Nehru loved it too. We shall never know. :|
Sigh! The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree, right? Crazy runs in the family!
