That Awkward Moment

We all have our shares of awkward moments. Here are some of mine....

That awkward moment when you find out that your dog is allergic to you.

That awkward moment when you are singing D.K Bose, and your father tells you it meant "something bad" when he was young.

That awkward moment when you make that grunting noise while laughing and your beloved sister points it out. (in public)

That awkward moment when your father confesses that he thinks that you bear a strong resemblance to music director Pritam. (obviously now am not going to share his picture over here)

That awkward moment when you feel more like Bappi Da. Without the gold though.

That awkward moment when Linda Goodman describes your laughter as 200 perfect hens laying 200 perfect eggs, and your family nods in fierce agreement.

That awkward moment when the LCD of your laptop mysteriously turns blue, so every movie you watch is blue.

That awkward moment when it starts working fine when you accidentally pour alcohol over it.

That awkward moment when you are dancing, and your dog heaves a sigh, gives you the look and walks out of the room.

That awkward moment when you wake up on a super sleepy morning and brush your teeth with your father's shaving cream.

That awkward moment WHEN YOU DO IT AGAIN.

That awkward moment when your family doesn't need a mosquito repellent when you are sitting in the room. (because of some damned factor in your blood, the buzzing blood suckers prefer you over anybody else).

That awkward moment when you affectionately plead your defunct table lamp, microwave, water purifier and sandwich toaster to start working again and they oblige, immediately.

That awkward moment when you intelligent electrician divulges to you the wisdom that Plug and Socket are known as male and female respectively.

That awkward moment, when you are walking on the road and a donkey appears from nowhere stands right in your path and starts shaking his head as if he has just accepted your proposal of marriage.

That awkward moment when a random dog starts howling when he sees you, runs to you like Majnu to Laila and lies down at your feet, only for the pack of biscuits in your hand.

That awkward moment when you realize that all your crushes are either dead or octogenarians.

That awkward moment when you start coughing while pronouncing Vincent von Gogh.

That awkward moment when you are admiring a Picasso and someone tells you its Modigliani.

That awkward moment when your maggi mysteriously turns green.

That awkward moment when you pour "kevra jal" into the Chinese, instead of vinegar.

That awkward moment when you discover Rohini was Moon's wife and he had 27 of them.

That awkward moment when he tells you that you are his sunshine, and he is wearing his Ray Bans.

  2. Thoroughly enjoyed the list. I am actually rolling down and my friends are looking at me as I'm an alien. BTW, Maggie turned green? Really?
    Story in pieces

    1. :Dhehehe! Thank you Princess.. you're generous as always!

  4. Hehehe

    The dog is allergic to you, and still gives a dismal look while walking out of the room you're dancing in? I think he likes you still, can't bear to see you like that :P

    So, when your father was young D.K. Bose was something offensive. Didn't you ask him, 'what about now?' :P

    Your Laptop loves to be high, in the dearth of which, it is having blues :D

    Well, most things that are inserted are called male and the sockets where they are inserted into are called their female counterparts. Like the USB, Every device which plugs into your PC/Laptop has a male connector, and your laptop hosts a female USB connector :)

    Your maggi is on a go green campaign!

    So, Rohini came at what number in the Moon's list? :P

    Blasphemous Aesthete

    1. hahahahaha!! This was better than the post.. :D
      Rohini was actually moon's favorite wife. I'll share the long story in another post. Its pretty interesting actually. :D

  9. I will tell you a better awkward moment when it comes to painting, I once went to a painting exhibition and was admiring a piece of art , I was so moved I called the artist and praised him for his wonderful work, that's when he said "Sorry! the painting is hung upside down!", I just walked out face pink like a peach!

    1. Whats awkward about it? Henri Matisse's paper cut, "The Boat", was hung upside down for 47 days and the admirers never noticed.. :D

  10. Enjoyed reading your list with a huge grin on my face till the end :)
