Pearls of Wisdom!

Sometimes the weight of the world just dumps itself on your shoulders and you get inundated with meaningless information, right?

Well, not to worry..
I, Mahima, have TRUE AND ABSOLUTE pearls of wisdom that will make this crazy world a lot more clearer.

Trust me.

So my brother had a bad cough, and someone asked "Do you know why he's ill?"
I know it's because of a virus, but out of a wicked desire to hear an alternative reason, I ask "Why?"

"Because he washes his face with the water from the shower..the water from the shower shouldn't hit your face!"

I was, as you can very well imagine, wide eyed and speecheless for a good 15 seconds before exclaiming completely straight-faced "Are you serious??"
"Yes!" says the Authority-On-All-Things-Shower-Related.
"I did not know that!"
At this moment I'm killing myself trying not to laugh. My nostrils flare when I try to stifle laughter and right about then you could have driven a double decker bus through them.

So my Dad comes in and he gets asked the same question and gets the same reply.

Only this time my Dad lacks my delicate subtlety and laughs his ass off.
And walks off saying "You're nuts!"

Other Pearls :
"Lights should be switched on ONLY after 6.30 pm!"
This was told to me as I went to switch on a light at 6.15 pm. After pausing mid-step to digest this, I pretended like I hadn't heard it, and proceeded to defiantly switch on the light.
Yeeeeah I'm the proverbial rebel without a cause :P

"Signals of Good Luck will make business better!"
This was repeated 5 times because everyone listening had a blank 'Say wut now?' look on their face. 5 repetitions later we nodded and said "Oh ok..yea..that.."
We still don't know what the hell that means.

"You're fair because you eat oats for breakfast"
Once again, this is exclaimed like it is a fact of life. Once again I exclaim innocently "Are you serious??". Once again I'm looked at like I'm a dumbass with a vacuum occupying the space between my ears. Once again I chuckle inwardly but say humbly "You know..I think you're right."
Refute that claim?
And lose the chance of chancing upon more pearls of wisdom?


Aaaaaah I LIVE for these moments.

Yeah and if you pass table salt, apocalypse will surely descend upon us.

And asking someone about where they're heading out right before they're heading out is unacceptable. But that can be assuaged if the said person sits down and drinks a glass of water.

And and eating pickle when you're on your period will somehow make your insides implode.

Hey, this is fun!

Ohhhh....that's a great read first thing on a Sunday morning. I'm set for the day now. Too bad I missed on my daily dose of fairness as I had TOAST for breakfast. Ha!

Indians especially have the weirdest things as well - I have stopped believing my mum and am convinced she just makes them up now for the sole purpose of annoying me.

Like - you're not allowed to wash your hair on a Thursday. Wtf?? I have done that many times so take that!

Oh - and another pearl of wisdom overheard at a recent dinner party by a random auntie - "Don't allow the random pregnant bahu to go out when there is a solar eclipse otherwise it'll harm her baby".

Wtf x 1000???

Now your dad is one cool dude FO SHO!!!!

I am still laughing, especially at the shower thing... wait until you are pregnant (if ever you choose to be) because then you hear the dumbest things EVER! Old wives tales galore and never mind being educated and knowing better and having done your reasearch and blah, blah, blah because those who believe such out there things, well, let us just say that "cuckoo" just does not even come close!

I missed you my friend! I can finally say I am back! But hey, where'd you go???

Here's another pearl for your collection - when I was pregnant with my daughter, I was "discouraged" from drinking anything black or brown (like, ummmm... TEA??) first thing in the morning. Why? Because that woul dmake the baby dark skinned. No- actually I was discouraged from drinking/eating anything brown or black at ANY time but my MIL finally tried to get me to agree to not having my first cup of tea in the morning (and failed miserably!)

Yes, my poor baby is "dark" :( (Ummmm, maybe because her MOTHER is dark-skinned????)
