What is with these National Geographic/ Discovery channels?
Why do they have to broadcast leopards feasting on a deer at dinner time?
And why do the men in my home always seem interested in watching the ‘kill’ when eating their own food, thus ruining my dinner time?
Zack, MIL, FIL, Nephew and me are having dinner.
Me : “Please change the channel. Am unable to see this and eat at the same time”
Zack : “Come on Visha, just look at this. Imagine the speed of the leopard..and see how the deer is running away”
Me : ” Whats the need to imagine, the deer has to run to save its own life, right”
Nephew : “But see how fast both are running. Wow”
FIL : “I wonder why just one leopard is going after a herd of deers. If another one joins, they can catch at least 2”
MIL : “Ayyo, concentrate on your food. That animal will take care of itself ”
Zack : “There…did you see that Visha..he has pounced on the deer.”
Me : “For God’s sake, do not discuss Zack.”
Nephew : “Maama, that was awesome no”
Me : “Why are the three of you so interested in watching this?”
The guys did not pay any heed to my question, they were so intently watching the TV.
I have to nudge the nephew and Zack to get back to their plates.
Zack : “Visha, you were asking something?”
Me: “yeah..whats so interesting about this?”
Nephew : “About what”
Me : “About one prani killing other prani”
And the room was filled with a cloud burst of laughter
Sigh..Men I say 😐
