If you grew up in a normal Indian household, chances are that life afforded you many, MANY awkward moments growing up. The thing is, no matter what class, race or religion, we all have these inherent Indian traits of fearing our parents, loving them immensely, yet never being able to talk about anything too intimate with them. This leads to some rather awkward moments, and we’ve *all* been there!
Umm, yeah, so it’s not a big deal. Just a standard birthday thing – cake, samosa, party hats…you know…
And then you make up a lame ass story about how your best friend just said the funniest thing.
And you give them the most exaggerated high-pitched denial performance of your lifetime!
“Karan?! Are you guys crazzyyyyy? *Fake laugh* He’s just a friend!”
Whaaa? Mom, she’s mistaken! It couldn’t have been me! Ohhh, she must have forgotten her glasses at home again!
But she doesn’t know you’ve read and watched 50 Shades of Grey and could school her on a thing or two. Also, your friends are the most corrupt bunch of people known to mankind and your mom is too pure for this world!
Not to be confused with ‘the death stare’, this one brings a high alert situation into your life. YOU ARE NOW BEING WATCHED!
You are supposed to pretend you didn’t hear it but you are so overjoyed that they are just like you!
They watch and enjoy as the colour drains from your face. Fun for them; not so much for you!
They are thinking MBA, you are thinking Girl Getaway. Ah, well! We’ve all been there.
But of course you pretend it’s a viral and that it’s all because of the damn changing weather.
