Ready Maid

There is no dearth of interesting personalities on this planet and I have done my share of observing, analysing and smiling quietly.
There's those people who don't know what a frown is, and there are those six-o-clock long faces that say...nah, they don't talk a lot, do they? Then there are saintly people like my sister's hostel mates who wake her up and offer a steaming hot cup of tea..angels, they are. There are those back-benchers who sit behind me (I would be a back-bencher if I didn't arrive late!!!)...I like to listen in on their extremely interesting conversations when I'm not day-dreaming in class. Not to forget those entertaining lecturers with amusing accents and intriguing gestures.

Belonging to this enchanting sliver of characters is my maid.She is a fascinating lady who can add spunk to the most colorless of situations.She does household chores with such a zeal that one almost feels jealous of her responsiblities.She is passionate about work and often strolls the extra mile.Housework is this woman's calling and she was born to do it.(And aren't we glad!!)

She is definitely not the silent type.She has something to say about everything.Homemade remedies for smooth and flawless skin, how to make that perfect cup of tea, what's on TV, the weather, stories about her other satisfied customers.Highly motivated, she often stays for a couple of extra hours to make murkus especially for me.(that explains why I'm going on and on about her!).
The other day, on April fool's day, to be exact, she came up to me and told me to go see what special fried item was waiting in the kitchen for me to munch.This happened when I was narrating my account of how I got fooled in class that day.Sucker that I am, I didn't even realise she was inspired by the topic of conversation.
I delightfully said, "really??" and rushed to the kitchen, lifted lids and tossed around some containers.Nothing fried, fatty or special was found.
"April Fool!!!" she yelled, as she got intense joy from torturing my easily tempted tastebuds.

This woman might sometimes be silly, loud, even exasperating.But never boring.

    Well.. the only think my maid has ever done that I am grateful for is smack a gecko out of my room ! I was about to squish the thing with my shoes, but she didnt want me to do that, instead caught the poor bugger and chucked him out !

    Its funny ya know, if you actually pay attention, you find that there is lot to laugh about in other people..and once your done with laughing and you turn around, you see a lot of other people laughing at you...but yes, humankind..one very nice, happy and definitely wierd family...i think this is where hostel life kicks in...in the hostel, everyone's fair game..no one escapes unscathed..and having a room/class full of guys laughing at you, when you walk in is definitely fun..esp. when you get to do it to the next guy walking in....observing people, is a very good way to spend time..great fun....

    oh, and food is the eternal temptation...its not fair that people should fool anyone with food.. :(

    While the old one was there that was good.
    Now that there is a new one... I'd say that's better than the other one.
