I am a celebrity!

How did I forget to write about this? Anyway, better gloat late then never! So I told you guys I was in Chennai 2 weeks back for a wedding and my US Visa appointment right? One afternoon, my FIL, Ashu and I were going home after a bit of shopping. Stopped at this shop called Surya Greens (Is that in Adyar? I am not Madras Savvy so forgive me!) for eating some chat and to buy some veggies and fruits. I finished my Sev Puri in 2 seconds and took Ashu and went out so that my FIL and the rest of the customers can eat in peace! Next door was Surya Sweets and Ashu and I were doing some window shopping there. There was this family with an elderly lady, a young woman and 3 cute kids. Ashu immediately said "Paappa" (Baby!) and went near the youngest child. And then it happened. The young woman asks me "Are you Boo from Boosbabytalk?" I have to check with her later but I think my jaw dropped and I went blank for 2 whole minutes! She continues, "I recognized your daughter from the photos you have posted". That brought me back to Earth. Ok, I am not the real celebrity after all! Then we chitchatted for a few mins and said bye. I liked the way her son came to her and asked in a whisper who I was and she was like "I ll explain to you later!" Ha ha ha! It might take quiet some explanation, Im sure. I think I said something like "Keep reading" when I left! How silly is that! I am sorry P, but this was the first time it happened to me and I was nt prepared!

And P it was so nice of you to say Hi to me unlike some people I know who lurk and read this blog but never acknowledge it when we meet. They get to know all the dirt about me but never bother to even mail me or wish me on my birthday. Ya, I am talking about you Honey. Now you know I know! ;)

I should have closed comments for this post. Look at all of you embarssing me like this! *blush. blush.*

Akka - Its such a silly thing! Cut it out now!

Shyam - If you want me to close this blog, just tell me! MY photo? Why do you want to do this to the few readers?!

Upsilamba - House arrest for Ashu hereafter! ;)

Ammani - You too! Probably I should have mentioned this in the post but the person P I met is related to our blog queen Ammani! *Taking a bow*

Kodis mom - Thank God no volunteer stalkers from Zurich! BTW, I want Kodis pics now so that I get an even chance to look out too! :)

we are recognized purely because of the pictures of the little ones.

we were in the seattle airport once and a couple recognized us from Jr.'s photos !!

:)

Jagan said...

if i had met u in a sweets shop ..and if i had flattered u enuf with "ninga boo thaane ? " statement , apporam u will end up paying the bill on my behalf ;-) ..ethuvum oru nalla idea thaan illa ?

Dadoji said...

boo: That was wonderful.

B o o said...

Sundar - I could nt believe hat actually. That P recognized Ashu from the photos. I did nt know the readers actually paid that much attention! More photos coming up! :)

Jagan - Ungalukku unga kavalai! ;)

Dadoji - Really? I got a little scared to tell you the truth in spite of the high. Whats the point of blogging as an anon then? Thats it! No more outings for Ashu! ;)

Never done this before. Leaving a comment for the first time. Thanks Boo!!!! I've been written about in your blog and all of that for just recognizing Ashu. I dunno what to say. Thanks?!!! I am Ms.P, the one you met at Surya's. With me were both my kids and my niece (who incidently is Ammani's niece too).Enjoy reading your blog and look forward to new posts. Will continue reading...............

I thought you are already an established celeb. :)

Congrats

the mad momma said...

what fun though!!! People keep asking me why I bother with the whole anonymous blog thing when I post so many pics of the Brat.. but I kinda always assumed that ppl cant tell one kid from another when they are not their own!!! I must now rethink that position!!!!

P 4 Pravin said...

Hi Boo, This is P's brother, another P (and therefore related to Ammani as well). Quite an interesting episode. Heard about it in the morning and dropped in for a dekko.

Am more surprised with the info that my sis P is into blogs and managed to identify Ashu! Hmm, she never manages to recollect our one-vitta chithappa oda mama oda atha payyan though!

B o o said...

Thanks P. My pleasure and thanks for letting me brag!

Latha - Yeah sure! In my house you mean?! ;)

MM - Thats the same thing I thought too! Now look what happened!

Pravin - Some people are gifted, you see! May be she did nt see that many photos of the "one-vitta chithappa oda mama oda atha payyan" as mush as she saw Ashu's! Ha! :) And thanks for dropping by! Honored!
