Good ole days of English

My little cousin sister from Ernakulam called up today morning. She was all excited. Her doggies, a Daschund and a Lhasa Apso had given her a puppy. Though she was disappointed that there was only one puppy she was nevertheles happy that she got a brand new puppy to play with.

Minu: Chechi my puppy is sooooo cute!
Me: You are such a lucky girl!!! How does it look like?
Minu: It looks like a loooooong Lhasa Apso
Me: Great! And what have you named it?
Minu: Dick!!!!
Me: What??? err...I mean how nice heh heh

How I envy her! I miss the days when a 'cock' was a rooster and a 'screw' was a hardware item and 'hardware' was...guess you know what I am talking about. Enjoy the freedom while it lasts dear Minukutty!

lol true...it is actually much tougher on the elders than on us...the english most of them are exposed to is so much more purer and formal...its an impossible task getting them to understand how it's all been twisted!

At times, I feel I'm out of times..My brothers talk between them ( they r in 10th ) in some slangs / codewords which I don't understand at all.. If u have a list of all those new teen brigade code words ( ofcourse , with their double meanings ), plzzzz put up a post :D .

hehe. So true!
The transition in staying at a bachelors home where conversations are uncensored, to a sudden weekend at home has been the biggest challenge of our lives :))
