A: Hi Guys! what’s new?
B: Nothing… holidays are usually boring.
C: Yes… Parents around.
A: So what?
D: Nice to have them at home. Or else they are usually all dressed and hurrying?
B: It’s better that way. At least they don’t tell us what to do.
A: Why does someone have to tell you what to do, if you do what you have to do.
C: They are all the time lecturing us on time management, mobile and studies. No more topics left under the sun to discuss.
B: True that!
D: We discuss politics, bollywood, hollywood, and even relatives.
A: Don’t you tell them about your friends and teachers?
C: Friends!! The minute I say friend… there is a siren at home.
C: My friends are categorised into two sections; one whom I call friends and the second set consists of whom my parents call my friends. Hence, I detest talking about friends.
D: Then what do you talk about?
C: I don’t talk… I listen.
A: Ok, now listen to me… Ha… Ha… ok hear this, the reason I called you all is that today is my Dad’s birthday and mom wants to give him a surprise but she doesn’t know what and how. Pool in some ideas!
B: Does you mom discuss all this with you? Great!
A: Of course. Why?
B: My mom is always in the kitchen when I am around. I don’t even think she remembers Dad’s birthday.
A: And on holidays?
B: She takes art sessions.
A: Wow, she is an artist.
B: Yes, and when she is free she is busy cooking for us, and only telling me to either study or arrange my cupboard.
D: Guess what I found when I arranged my cupboard last week. Our UNO pack of cards that we used to play every summer vacation.
C: My dad keeps telling me to clean my shelf and study table, as if I am even going to study.
A: Why… don’t you study?
C: Who studies all the time? I study only for the exams.
B: Same here, but I do a little math homework otherwise a call goes to my Dad.
A: Anyway guys, it’s my Dad’s birthday…
D: We remember… how about getting a cake?
A: I have done that. Something different.
B: Why different? Is you dad going to appreciate it. All that my dad would say “you shouldn’t have spent so much money”.
A: I don’t want to think about that. My mom and I want to surprise him… that’s her idea. Do you get it?
B: How will I get it when my dad surprises me every time with a new reason to shout at me?
A: That’s ridiculous. Why does your dad shout at you?
B: That’s because he doesn’t like me.
A: Why doesn’t he like you? What does he say that makes you feel that way?
B: He calls me useless all the time.
A: And why do you think he does that?
B: Because when he comes home, I am sleepy and just lazing around.
A: Do you greet him when he comes?
A: Do you tell him about your school?
A: Then what do you do?
A: No wonder he calls you useless.
C: ha.. ha.. ha… hee… hee… hee…
A: Quiet here, My Dad’s bithday is coming to an end dicussing his dad, and you are laughing.
C: Sorry Dude.
D: My dad walks in with a contagious smile and always has something hilarious to tell us.
B: My dad is hilarious, he walks in with the phone on one ear, walks straight into the room, and comes back with the phone on the other ear.
A: I think you must have dinner with your dad and prove it to him that you are not useless.
B: Tried that too… he only asks how much did I study today and whether I have a test tomorrow? For both which I always reply in the negative and this upsets him. And then he goes back to the ear-changing action on the phone.
C: I sneak into my room the minute dad comes. He’a always asking me silly things like do you know what happened in the parliament today?
D: I wait for my Dad.
B: I go to sleep before he arrives.
A: It’s my Dad’s birthday today!!!!
