Lazy Saturdays are the best! That’s a lie actually, lazy any-day is good for me. However I was dragged from the couch strategically placed right in front of the television while indulging in nutella to accompany my pregnant sister to her check-up. I tried to charmingly explain it to my mom why I must stay put and not leave but the “MA I’M 20 YEARS OLD! I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE” won’t be taken seriously if your chin and forehead has nutella stains on it. So that’s why I’m blogging from the hospital and leaving butt-prints at places other than the couch at home. My mom must be so proud.
Anyways, I’m wearing an oversized tshirt and my hair is a complete mess. I dress up ‘appropriately’ to hospitals every day of the week, so I’m not even trying today. But ooo ooooo the doctor pointed out my little nephew/niece in the scan. The baby seems to be following our tradition of leaving as little as butt-prints possible. Despite the doctors attempts to try to ‘shake things up’ the baby resolutely stayed dormant. I have a feeling I’ll get along well with this one! She showed us his/her thighs, hands, head and the tiny, tiny beats of the heart. In our family, we don’t really hug,kiss or display any sort of emotions excessively. We are very informal with each other, I sometimes call my mom by her first name but we all get uncomfortable with public display. In that room when that little heart was ticking, I thought if this was a movie everyone would have their eyes brimming with tears but we all seemed composed and bored on the outside but I’m sure everyone was flipping out in their own little way inside. My sister, who is the baby of the family despite being 5 years older is having one of her own. I don’t think I’m going to believe it till I hear the incessant wailing!
There was also continuous playful bickering with my brother in law who claims I resemble a homeless person with zero sense of hygiene which is TOTALLY untrue. Granted I look a little messy at all times, but he’s just exaggerating..hopefully. So it was nice when a completely cute stranger who was taller than me(I should have abducted him, ugh!) started a totally random conversation with me in the elevator. Super friendly too but not in that creepy way that I am sometimes.
And to top it off, tomorrow is..yes say it with me..A SUNDAY! From Monday, it’s internal exams, drastic weather, confrontation with a roommate who can’t take a hint..but that’s for another post. As of now, I’m just going to harass my brother in law and turn my eyes away from anything that’s yellow. All these minions everywhere is giving me a headache.
