O Sistah

28 Aug

The sister’s visiting home at the moment. Mom and her are quite struggling it out, with each other. Latest trends suggest that matters are cordial as they invest all effort in staying out of each others’ hair.

So the sister was visiting our old home yesterday, and rang me up to tell me about her “homecoming”.

Sister: God, it’s soo depressing the way they’ve kept the house…
Me: Hmm…
Sister: Anyway, what’re you upto?
Me: Not much… Bed-ridden. Think I have a flu. High fever, cough, cold, bodyache… the works…
Sister: Even I have a cold… Okay, will catch you later…

My Gtalk status, meanwhile, reads “is ill… again!”

Which seemingly caught my sister’s eye, when she logged on. The concerned sister obviously had to ping me…

Sister: u there
Me: Ya
Sister: me down with a cold

Mom logged into Gtalk after a long time, today. Saw my status message and pinged…

Mom: What happened kiddo? Why are you ill?
Me: Viral
Mom: You’ve not called either.
Awww! Since when?
Me: 2 nights ago
Mom: You didn’t even let us know
Me: Told the sister
Mom: sorry… you know her
Me: I do!

I cannot recall since when becoming ill turned into a competition!
