Shorts: THE BLUE PACKET
I came back home.
Mom (Irritated): I know what you came here for. But don’t ask me anything, ask your dad.
Me (With a smirk): Yeah okay.
Dad (Giggling): Yes beta, I know. It’s in the storeroom.
Me: Thanks, dad. You’re a darling. Anyway, mom doesn’t know what I am looking for.
After struggling to find it in the storeroom, I went back to them in the living room.
Me (Losing my patience): Oh dad, you only help me now. There are lots of packets here. Which one am I supposed to take to didi’s place?
Dad: It’s the brown one.
Me: But dad, more than half are brown packets.
Dad (Confused): Well, I need to ask your mom. That’s the only…
Mom (Interrupting): Ohho, you are supposed to take the one with a blue zigzag design over it and a green handle. Additionally, it’s made from handmade paper, giving a coarse feel.
Me (Feeling overwhelmed): Mom, what would I do without you?
Dad (With a puppy face): But beta, I was close too, I told you where it is!
After this, I couldn’t stop smiling because of how incomplete I am without mom! And of course dad! Slowly, the mood and vibe around the 3 of us changed to a comfortable and joyful one!
Me (Happy Little tears in my eyes): What would I do without both of you!
