Now that MIL is at home alone with lil p.. some daily conversations..
Day 1 of MIL left alone at home with LIL P
Me (in a meeting): *phone rings* Hello? Amma? Tell me
MIL: TV is not working …
Me: * in hushed tones* Er? Whats wrong?
MIL: Its not working!!
ME: Huh? What can u see on the screen??
MIL: something green..
ME: green?? Ok do 1 thing.. press the on/off button in the smallest remote – we have 3 [ 1 for Tv, 1 for DVd & 1 for tata sky] ..
MIL: the red button??
Me: Was it red? No that’s the tata sky remote.. pick the smallest 1 .. after 5 mins.. hello?? Amma? What happened?
MIL : Ok TV started. But its grey.
Me: Ok.. Pick the taka sky and switch it on.
MIL: Where is the ON button??
ME: Red button
MIL: The red button at the bottom??
ME: Bottom?? Oh you are holding it upside down.
MIL: ok ok. Switches it on
ME: Now press channel button.
MIL: which one??
ME: up down button at center right.
After 5 mins of futile navigation on the tata sky remote..
MIL: Still Not working!! What shud I do??
ME: ask Lil P.
2 seconds later a excited Mil says…
ah! She switched it on..
ME: wondering why I didn’t think of this before!!
