Curious Case of Behenji Button

My exams are in 14 days and I don’t feel the pinch. I think I’m over all this stuff……In fact, I feel to old to care. Yep-that’s it, I’m an old hag in this 21yr old’s body! The more I think about it, the more I have come to terms with a simple truth about myself: I seriously do not act my age.

Here are the top signs/reasons:

1) I am paranoid about ‘time’. Whether it’s the time to reach a certain place, or the time it takes to travel somewhere.

2) I scold little kids often and get a rise out of it.

3) I always take the side of my 60+ yr old professors in class

4) I love to watch Door Darshan on a rainy day

(The guru dude is hot to listen to…the woman…let’s not start)

5) I cannot stand anyone making noises with their mouths- that includes chewing noises or swallowing noises which some people do as a pastime.

6) If people (usually guests) at home watch their daily Indian soap operas, I HAVE to sit behind them and heckle at the losers on screen. I do this while they say the dialogues. There’s so much stupidity, if I waited for each line to end, I’d run out of time.


7) I’m starting to find every item of food too spicy and rely on cold milk as a cure. That’s exactly what fuddy-duddies do.

8) I always forget a good idea.

9) I randomly finish things at a certain number (includes number of sit ups, salute to the suns, things to write on a list) , under the pretext of it being my lucky digit. In reality, I’m too lazy to go on. But…9 is my lucky number. Shut up.

So what on earth is the remedy to this?
I barely got back from a health check up, and I woke up with granny body cramps! It’s a catastrophe I tell ya. How much older can my soul grow?  If I find that there are others who feel like this, I’m just going to have to blame globalization, and then start an anti-globalization group. On the other hand, when I’m not feeling old and I’m all bubbling with joy- I begin to think that life is really simple….Sometimes when things like that hit you it can freak you out, because you just end up wondering what exactly you forgot to stress about. Or maybe that’s just me.

Take care of yourselves and eat lots of fruit, wear woolens (although its 40 degrees Celsius).

  1. All the points you mentioned that should make you feel old are all irrelevant. On the contrary they reflect that you are as little “Jawani” girl as can be. Only an aunty types young girl would like that soap opera. 😀 All girls are paranoid about time, especially when their boyfriends aren’t. Scolding kids, chewing noises, agreeing with your good professers are all signs of a youngster. However, watching doorsarshan on a rainy day is debatable. 😉 May be that just means you need better friends 😀 or may be you are just curious ‘cos you haven’t watched doorsarshan in your childhood and don’t know how depressing it used to be at that time. 😮 And if you find this examination system irrelevant, then you have signs of a young engineer in you. Who studies 15 days prior to exams? Only geeks do! Engineers never start working until and unless their a** is on fire! 😉
    The only +ve sign I see in you is that you “think” you are old! It’s all about one’s thinking. One can feel young at the age of 80 too. Look at our politicians for instance, 80% are 65+. That’s the only spirit I appreciate in them. 😀
