Grown

Taken from a post in Ria's blog:

Silly question: You have grown so much! (when a relative sees you after a long time)
Silly answer: You have not particularly shrunk yourself!

What would you say when a relative says to you,
"Arey tu toh kitni/kitna badi/bada ho gaya hai!"

"Arey tu toh kitni/kitna badi/bada ho gaya hai!"

ANS : haan ji... bilkul bada ho gaya hoon... 2 biwi aur 12 bachhe bhi hai... par, aap ko itna jalan kyon ho rahi hain...

Solitaire said...

@ Ishqia,

Their response will be..

Badi toh ho gayi...saath mein zabaan bhi chalne lagi!

Solitaire said...

Stupidosaur said...

"You see due to some phenomenon of physics, distant objects appear smaller.

Since you have not met me in a long time, I had become a DISTANT memory for you. Hence in that memory I seem smaller to you. Thats all."

Preeti said...

My reply: Ji aunty, me AND my heart have become bigger!

*Sweeter than saccharine smile*

Ashish said...

aisi koi baat nahi hai auntiji, actually Meri moti tvachaa se meri umra ka pataa hi nahi chaltaa!

AmitL said...

Ohhh...my favorite question of all time..I've always wanted to respond to it with a ' No, I'm going to a masquerade party, dressed up as you'.

or: I'd really love to react like this:

*scream out loud*' where's a mirror, where's a mirror?' And, when people ask what's wrong, reply' Arre, Aunty says I look much older, and,I want to check what happened!!

Swati said...

I will say ..

"Acha ..chalo aapne bata diya ..mujhe toh pata hi nahi tha"

PrAcHi said...

Arrey aunty.. Aap bhi toh budhi hogayi hai.. Pehle toh young thi! ;)

Pavi!!!! said...

i used to laugh smirkishly...'coz i knew i had not grown an inch fatter or taller n yet my relatives wld tell me that! it used to be so amusing once i got used to it!Initially it used to be annoying!

n some of crse...would make the effort to ask me "OMG!u hvnt grown at all!Wat's ur height now?"
my reply "ur right , i hvnt grown, so its the the same thing that i told u the last time we met!"

maverick said...

i ld say...aunty g...apki bahu se apki pat ti hai??

Karthik S said...

My responses will be either
1. So what???
or
2. Horizontal or vertical. Be specific.

Satish Bolla said...

(blushing)auntyji, suna hai ki aapka beti bhi badi ho gayi. mere friends bol rahe ki woh ek dum mast item hain...

Am In Trance said...

Q: What would you say when a relative says to you,
"Arey tu toh kitna bada ho gaya hai!"

A: "Haanji...
Ab meri shadi karwado aur mere bachhon ko bhi bade hote huye Dekho.."

Ria said...

@Ishqia: He he gud one there! But after tht ur aunty wud never want to c u again! ;) :D

@Vrij: Vrij at his wittiest! :)

@Neeku: Nw i dont understand Gujarati :( Plz translate!

Ria said...

@Iceman: Cool it man!u seem to b so angry at tht statement... :P

@Chakoli: Nice multiple choice answer...i liked the 2nd one more. :)

@Vishesh: Ur aunty is not goin 2 b too pleased wth tht answer! ;)

Ria said...

@Humbl Devil: Hmm thts a nice polite answer which is definitely goin to stitch up aunty's "chalti hui zabaan" :D :P

Aneesh said...

Wow, am I, really? !!!!

Hiren said...

just a nice smile ... its an irritating question alright ... but i think most of them dont intend to irritate us as such .... they use it just to start a conversation or when they have nothing else to say to us ... so best is to smile and end the conversation :)

sorry for digressing from the "Short and Sweet" mood :) but cant think of any witty answer :) guess I used the entire weekly quota of my wit in coming up with multiple answers for the previous post ...

vishesh said...

@ria: all my aunties are used to that reply and even more sarcastic ones lol :P

Solitaire said...

@ Iceman,

Aunty will scream and fall flat on her face!

Solitaire said...

@ chakoli,

!!!!!!!!!!

Solitaire said...

@ Vishesh,

But don't you think they usually have become short because we have become taller!?

Solitaire said...

@ Ishqia,

Aapko aunty se chata padega.

Solitaire said...

@ Humble,

Poor aunty!! Izzat ki dhajiya uda di tune!

Solitaire said...

@ Sam,

Aunty is sure to run away and make an appointment for a face lift the next day!

Solitaire said...

@ Neeku,

Bus bus hawe..

Solitaire said...

@ Keshi,

:o

Solitaire said...

@ Phoenix,

Bus?

Solitaire said...

@ Nitin,

Guess what! You should try it! Aunties are always ready to marry someone else's children off. They have an encyclopedia of "ideal matches"!

Solitaire said...

@ Ankur,

Maybe you can ask them to pick between bhainsa and dog?

Solitaire said...

@ Stupidosaur,

Aunty ke palle kuch nahi padega.

She will say,

"Enough of education. Its time to get married!"

Solitaire said...

@ Preeti,

Arey! then its time to find some rajkumar to live in your heart...blah blah..

Solitaire said...

@ Ashish

HAHAHHHA!

Ankur said...

tere ko kaise pata???

main unhe yahi bolta hoon ki koi ladki ab pasand karegi nahi coz i look so damn fat :P
and if someone comes coz i earn well then i dont need her in my life...

so for me options are closed!!! :P

Cheers!!!

humbl devil said...

@ria and sol :

Soham Shah said...

Pretending to be a nice kid, I always smile when some one says that you hv grown up so big, hvn't you??

By the way, ur mom only told me this when she saw me at Jitukaka's place ;-)

ishqia said...

hehe ...... yaar agar good mood me kahenge to she may take it in a humoros manner...

then she will see me again for sure ria..

bahut se dialogue kehne ke andaz pe bhi depend hote hai..

Neeku said...

@ Ria: oops sorry... let me try to Un-Gujarati it ;)

yes, aunty, i think your eyes have gone smaller and so... you seem to see me growing so big...

I think I almost almost killed the joke here !

... but it sort of a sarcastic reply... okay... let me come up with something... give me some time.

Princess Mia said...

APOO said...

Answer: Which body part are we talking about here?

Solitaire said...

@ AmitL,

Poor Aunty!

Solitaire said...

@ Apoo,

"Abey buddhoo...tu pura ka pura!"

Aunty ke palle nahi pada kuch bhi!

Solitaire said...

@ Princess,

I am sure aunty will be happy with that answer!

Solitaire said...

@ Soham,

Damn!! Must tell her to tell me all this before I pose such questions!

Solitaire said...

Lots of girls like dogs!

Solitaire said...

Solitaire said...

Hahahah!!! Or you say say..main vertical aap horizontal!

Solitaire said...

@ Maverick,

Haha! Bolti bandh!

Solitaire said...

@ Pavi,

Hehe at the 2nd response.

But how wonderful it must be to not put on any inch of fat on your body...I guess those statements may sound irritating, though.

Solitaire said...
