Complement

Reached home around 7.15 p.m. yest.Removed my slippers and put them on the rack and appa squealed with delight. Before I asked him anything, he said " Sabaash, very good ! very good!!!
I was totally lost, suprised and was wondering why appa had to give forth a loud shrill like this..( he is never too excited for anything in this world)

Did I get some offer letter from some company? -no thats not possible without my knowledge!

Did I win some lucky draw from Chennai Silks??? - hmm..no clues..may be..!!

Was appa trying to be sarcastic on seeing my Airtel phone bill? ( ayyo..I wish its not that ways...)

Or did appa suddenly realise that I am infact a good, obedient, dutiful girl/ daughter ? ( How I wishhhhhhhh)

While my brain was processing all possible things and mentally trying various permutations and combinations, Appa remained really pleased.

Allrite, let me ask him what really happened and why he got so excited ..and so I ask him appa ennachu ( meaning wat happened)

Appa with a smile " you have placed your slippers on the rack rightly for the first time".

Phew.......is this what that made appa squeal?

I hear a thud then..

I turn back to see what has happened..One of my slipper had fallen off the rack..!!
