Driving down to work in our Sedan, I am indulging in my favorite pastime when on the road..reading number plates of the cars driving in front. Spot one ‘XML-…‘ and get all excited because that actually means something. Conversation that moves on to custom number plates.
Me: I once saw MEMSAB as in Memsahib
D: Oh and MASTI
Me: And SMARTY
D: Remember that Yellow Porsche we saw with number plate SARDAR
Me: That was so cool *with a huge grin on my face*
D: Let’s get a custom number plate for our car
Me: What would you have on it?
Me: Oh please keep your Delhi lingo to yourself. It is coming nowhere near my car
A lot more name suggested, all in the same vein. All rejected. Some with hoots of laughter, some with shake of a head, some with screeching NO
D: How about BUNTY?
Me: ha ha ha
D: *Thinking for a bit* You know what? Let’s name our SUV, BUNTY and call this Sedan, BABLI
So there you have it people. If you ever see BUNTY and BABLI on the road you know you have reached the Comfy household. 😀 😀
