In my last post, I spoke about an Indian restaurant… Bollywood Theater. Please check this for something akin to a restaurant review. While at the restaurant, DD and her friend finished dinner. Since the adults were still scarfing down food (it was that good) DD and her friend decided to provide us with some entertainment during dinner.
They said they’d do a play. We were asked to give them all our attention. They set the stage by saying that they were a couple out on a date and DD specifically pointed out to us that they were not married. So the play started. DD and her friend spent the first 15 minutes looking for a table at the restaurant and the next 15 deciding who will pull the chair for whom. They hadn’t decided who was to be the girl and who the boy hence the whole debate. All my lessons on feminism have gone down the drain, but I will do a post on that later.
Eventually, they each pulled out their own chairs (all hope may not be lost yet), sat down and said “What’s up?” That is all the conversation that was exchanged until the end of the play. When they came to the table to ask for feedback, I said “You guys are out on a romantic date and all you can say to each other is What’s up?” DD immediately quips “We were lost in each other’s eyes.” (It’s not my fault, she watches too many 3rd grade Hindi soaps, never mind that she watches them with me).
However, I continued to poke fun at DD for the lack of dialog. She put up with it for 3 minutes and then said “Well, guess what, we’re now married. That should explain the lack of conversation.”
After 2 minutes of zapped silence, all 4 adults looked at each other and said almost at once “What the heck have we been teaching them about married life?” *Gulp*
