As I clean up after dinner D and Buzz sit with a book counting cows, horses, sheep, pigs, chicken, ducks and whatever else they can find. Once the book is done D moves on to asking Buzz to count his eyes. ‘2’ comes the reply.
D: Papa ke ear kitne hein?
Buzz: 1 (points to left ear), 2 (points to right ear), 3 (points to the backside of the right ear), 4 (points to the backside of left ear).
D: (laughs) Papa ke teeth count karo.
Me: (gives a dirty look) Please don’t ask her that else I will have my mouth open all day and same goes for you.
D: (looks sheepish) Papa ke hair count karo.
Buzz: 1, 2.
D: (sad sad voice) Haan ab to itne he bache hein.*
Me: Papa ke baal (since she understands baal better than hair) count karo.
Buzz: 1 (finger at the hairline), 2 (finger in the middle of the head), 3 (finger at the back part of the head).
D: Chalo eak se to badha.**
Now we know what someone has on his mind and I can’t even seem to sympathies for I laugh and laugh as I look at a head *still* full of hair.
*Yeah now only so many are left.
** At least it increased by one.
