TV Time

When we are really bored, Amma and I watch TV together or just go out for a walk!! About walking I will write later.

My mother most of the time needs a company to watch TV/movies on TV. Even if it is a comedy movie she feels good only if she has a company to watch it. If she is alone she watches for sometime and turns it off saying its boring. But this is not applicable if its a Sivaji Ganesan/Karthik/Surya movie Smiley

Somedays when I go back to home I see her all puffy eyed. I get worried and ask her if someone called, if something bad happened. She would say ” No No I just watched a really sad Sivaji Ganesan movie ” . And she will say it with a sad face!! 🙄

She gets irritated when I watch Friends over and over again. Sometimes she just comes and sits with me asking totally random questions. She creates a story of her own and attaches with the current scene and asks questions .It will be like “Why is she doing this? Is it because this happened? ” Smiley

One day she just came and watched friends for 2 mins and asked me “Where is my fav character?” I was like “YOUR fav character? Now who is that? ” She waited for sometime and pointed Ross . She doesnot even know his name ok. But it seems she likes Ross the most 🙄

One day I was really bored and started watching Hollow man. She came and watched it with me for 10 mins and was totally in it. When I tried to change the channel, she did not allow me to Smiley.She grabbed the remote saying that the movie was very interesting and she watched the full movie with some interesting questions like “Will he come alive? Will he come alive again? Will he come alive AGAIN?” zzzzzz

I watch Castle. She is super impressed with Detective Beckett. She has given her a nick name “Bucket” . As soon as I turn it on, she will come and ask “where is bucket? ” 🙂

She can watch any movie which has Sivaji/Karthik/Surya in it. I mean even if its like a dabba/flop/mokkai-est movie!! If I talk anything wrong about these people she rolls up her sleeves and starts an argument Smiley. Just to irritate her, I pretend to hate Surya and Karthik 😀  Sometime I call her jollu and she blushes!! 😀

We both praise Rajini when we watch his movies Smiley

me: “Amma he looks so nice in this movie la?”

Amma: “Look at his style. This was the best period in his acting career! All his movies in this period were super hit”

me: “Amma, watte ishtyle!!!!”

Amma: “Look at his hair, he looks reallllllly good”

And it goes on and on.

If its a sad movie, I give her enough warnings in the beginning itself. Still she cries at the end Smiley! And She thinks I never notice it !

Somedays we just maintain silence by listening to Kishore Kumar, P.B.Sreenivas and T.M.Soundararajan songs Smiley

If someone appears in TV with a violin, that’s it I am gone. She immediately asks me to practise it. But but when I start playing, this happens Smiley . She still believes that one day..ONE day some “music” will come out of my violin.
