three eggs cracked…

mubi was scrubbing and rubbing and polishing the fridge while mum has her best conversation ever

two women are engaged in an intense conversation about the relations of the family, the ones that go like ‘woh kis ka beta tha…’ ‘us ki biwi taya kay betay ki beti thi jo ab apni nand kay shukar ki khala zaat behan hai, us ki ma meray mamoo ki biwi ki phophii thi…’ these kind of long LONG relationship talk where the root to the family tree is trying to be discovered.

khala: tanveer ka mian/ shawher fareeda ka bhai hai

mama: tanveer ka?

khala: haan..dekho…jo tanvee..

mama: tanveer mard ka naam hai?

mubi chuckles and bursts in laughter.

mama: kia? tanveer aurat hai?

mubi: obviously ma, Pakistan mai abi tak gay marriages legal nai hoi !!

as an afterthought mubi ended up breaking 3 eggs….

  3. Haha, someone told me of two guys named SADAF and IRUM, and that someone was swearing by herself. Anyways, three eggs is not that bad, you should thank God they weren’t Bad eggs, or you’d have been cleaning for the next 25 years…btw you could’ve written

    I have a paper with my family roots going back to just 1750’s something! 😦 But I heard there was a guy in our India wala village who had them way back to …ahem…aaryans I think! 😀

  7. The broken eggs reminded me of the ‘shiekh chilley’ fable .. when he was walking with a basket of eggs, thinking far fetched about how the eggs will produce chicks and he’ll grow them to sell and buy sheep and become a wealthy farmer and when a begger will ask him for some money, he’ll kick him like he did and stumbled; the basket he held fell to the ground and the eggs were cracked 😀
