Honey, I have a craving!!
*”*”*”*”*”*”*(EPISODE – 9)*”*”*”*”*”*”*
During Eighth month of Ragini’s pregnancy…,
Ragini : My colleague came to work with her baby today, and the baby wore a very sweet, pretty outfit that made her look like a princess. In the evening, I’ll go for shopping.
Laksh : OK!! We can shop at the weekend.
Ragini : Thank you, Laksh. I knew you would agree, so today I bought fancy brand-name clothes for her from that famous store. Our daughter must get the best!
Laksh : I thought we were going to do the shopping together.
Ragini : Don’t worry. There’s still a lot to buy. Hey, see this is a shampoo for the baby when she sleeps and that shampoo is for when she wakes up. These are diapers from the US, and this is a brush for her hair.
Laksh : (shocked) WHAT??? Shampoo for what?? How do you know that the baby wants to sleep or not to and how to decide ahead of time which shampoo to use? You might bath her with shampoo used for waking up and then she will want to sleep… oh yes, then you’ll wake her up quickly and give her a shower with the right shampoo???
And again continues..
Laksh : wait wait,Who told you that the baby will be born with hair, as I understand it, a lot of babies are born without any hair, so that hairbrush is useless. In addition, why did you buy diapers made in the US?? What’s wrong with the ones made in India?? It’s just a diaper, not a fancy thing!!!
Ragini : Arrrgh..!! Don’t worry, babies know the right shampoo! She’ll sense which is the correct one and then act accordingly, that’s what’s written on the bottle. And I got the US-made diapers because I want my daughter to feel unique.
And again continues..
Ragini : Anyway, I bought three towels for the baby, one to use after shower, the second to dry her as the first one will be wet, and the third to cover her the second we are sure she is properly dried. Also, I got her hair clips, skin cream, one for night and the other for the morning, three pair of shoes, socks, underwear, and four dresses.
Laksh : Are you sure you’re shopping for a baby, not a girl who is getting ready for marriage?? By the way, did you buy her a make-up box?? There’s something especially for babies. You have to run to buy it now, and don’t forget the baby’s tooth brush too!!!
Ragini kept hand on her head and said..
Ragini : Oh my God! You’re right Laksh, I really forgot that. I’ll arrange with ma and Swara to go out with me to complete my shopping.
Whereas Laksh gives her impossible look.
Ragini : By the way, you have to be more careful, Swara told me that anger and nervousness are not good for pregnancy. Today at the meeting, all my colleagues were perfectly behaved, once any one just thought about arguing with me, I told them that I was in the eighth month and the baby would be delivered prematurely if I argue!!! There were no arguments, and the meeting ended in just 10 minutes!!!
Laksh: Ragini, I think you’ll get fired soon.
