I never thought Microsoft Excel could be used to do math. I always thought it was only used to plan vacations. Atleast that’s what amma does.
– Exclaims my 10 year old to her father, looking at me accusingly, as she discovers a whole new world with him.
Him: I will be home late today.
Me: Poor appa. All work and no play…
Kiddo: Amma, all work and no play increases appa’s salary!
– Cheeky kiddo sure has her comebacks down pat these days. Poor appa.
Conversation between my nine year old daughter and her father.
Appa: Make me some tea.
Her: Someday, appa. I’m not saying I’ll make it now, or tomorrow or later. But someday.
Appa: I’ll also send you to college someday. I’m not saying I’ll send you when you are ready to go or the year after. But someday.
Her: I’ll find some way to go to college. And I’ll find some way to become a billionaire. And then I won’t give you my money!
– Poor appa, there goes his retirement plan. He seems to keep getting outwitted again and again and yet again.
Her: Appa, who is a CEO?
Appa: A Chief Executive Officer is the head of a company.
Her: So does a CEO execute the officers who don’t do their work properly?
– Methinks, the cheeky brat has her strategy for tripping up her father down pat. Nicely played, kiddo!
Kiddo: Appa, what do you do at office?
Appa: There are a lot of people in my office. I manage them, give them work and tell them what to do.
Kiddo: Oh, so they do all the work in your office. Then, besides giving work to other people, what do YOU actually do?
And beleaguered appa concedes yet another round!
