Rahul was playing on his new bed while we sat on ours having our breakfast of radhaballobi-alur dum. Since both my hands were occupied I was trying to distract him from fiddling with the table fan by pointing out random things every time his attention wandered fan-wards.
After I'd exhausted pretty much all else I desperately looked for inspiration and started calling out the stuff written on his t-shirt.
Dekho, baNdor, baNdorta koi? Oi dekho, 1982, oi 1982'r baNdor ta koi?
("Look, there's a monkey, where's the monkey? Oh see, there's 1982, now where's that monkey from 1982?")
In case you're scratching your head looking for the joke here, I must point out that I'll be 27 years old this birthday.
Vicky's already called up my parents and M'pishi and shared the 'joke'. I think I will divorce the man one of these days.
