You are going to read a Yahoo! Messenger conversation between a husband and wife. The husband works for an Internet major called www.ibibo.com and wife used to be with Cognizant Technology Solutions, till she decided to give up her career for a few babies (the couple were aiming for twins).
The conversation happens at 3.15 p.m. when the husband is in office. Talking of 3.15 pm…I am reminded of www.311pm.com – have you checked it out yet? It is an awesome movement being planned by the people of Chennai.
Getting back to our conversation, here we go –
Pppumpkincarver: Nope. Tell me…
Rekha: Nothing…was getting bored at home
Pppumpkincarver: What is the baby doing…sleeping?
Rekha: She just proved herself to be a tough 7-months-old…crawled all the way from the small bedroom to the study. (Yes, the couple have a newly agreed upon study in their house)
Pppumpkincarver: On her own? Did she crawl like an army man in the war front? Or like a tiger in a jungle?
Rekha: Like a tigress…
Rekha: She was about to lick the CPU…
Pppumpkincarver: Daughter of two IT professionals has every right to lick the CPU.
Rekha: ha ha ha…I had to lift her…now typing with her in hand
Pppumpkincarver: We got to be careful. Need to plug all electrical sockets
Rekha: I suggest a shortcut – take up a house in Gurgaon with no power backup 😉
Rekha: You know today she woke up from sleep
Pppumpkincarver: Wow…you speak like a true mother…anybody who sleeps wakes up…
Rekha: Hear me out…and she started crying…but the tough taskmaster that I am, I didn`t go near her
Rekha: I stood in the kitchen and kept on talking to her….and she followed my voice to the kitchen
Pppumpkincarver: That`s neat. Did your family shift from Calicut to Kannur after 1498 AD?
Rekha: Why do you ask?
Pppumpkincarver: Our daughter seems to have some traits of Vasco Da Gama.
Rekha: And what is the connection with the year?
Pppumpkincarver: That`s the year Vasco da Gama landed in Calicut.
Rekha: Yeah right!
Rekha: z tttbbvb k.ikmn n jkjv www
Pppumpkincarver: What was that? Are you swearing at me?
Pppumpkincarver: Or are they my daughter’s first Yahoo! Chat messages?
Pppumpkincarver: Did she type the “YES”?
Rekha: No…but she typed in the junk earlier.
Pppumpkincarver: Thank God she didn`t type “Yes”.
Rekha: But I thought “Yes” would have been a very positive start.
Pppumpkincarver: …coz I wanted her first meaningful, typed word to be www.ouchmytoe.com
Pppumpkincarver: Who typed this?
Rekha: I made your baby type this…
Pppumpkincarver: How did she use the shift button for the “O”?
Rekha: It was obviously me…
Pppumpkincarver: That is awesome!
Pppumpkincarver: Now make her type: “My papa strongest!”
Rekha: n b ty tbb zzzzzzzzzz
Pppumpkincarver: In which language does that mean “My papa strongest?
Rekha: This is Rhinglish (Rhea+English+Hindi)
Pppumpkincarver: How soon before she can send me an e-mail?
Rekha: How about after her lunch?
Pppumpkincarver: ok ïŒ
Rekha: ok..now time for her food
Pppumpkincarver: sure…how many bytes is she having?
Rekha: 5KB…without optimization.
Pppumpkincarver: Good one. Bye.
