Abu is the Hulk #MondayMusings

The weekend was over and Monday was getting busier by the minute. I had workmen repairing a bathroom, a fussy computer that needed looking into and an important dinner next week that I had to plan for . I was wondering how the year was picking up momentum as it was coming to an end . It’s already November and before we know it, will be bringing in the New Year.

I was pondering over this thought when the bell rang and in walked Wow Dinga. He had just come home from school and was absolutely ravenous . Before I could get him his food, Little Po came running up to me saying “Ajji come quick Abu has become a hulk” .

Now Hubby Dear has just left for Nasik and he didn’t look anything remotely like the Hulk when I wished him goodbye.

However, not wanting to disappoint the little one, I humoured him and let him lead me towards his hunky grandfather by my little finger . He dragged me towards my bedroom and into the bathroom where he pointed out to Hubby Dear’s toothpaste caddy.

Our old caddy that had once held both his and her toothbrushes and paste had broken so ‘he’ took out a mug that he was presented with on his 60th birthday- a rather cheesy mug announcing ‘I am Sexty.’ It had his rather cheery face super imposed on the body of a hulk!

Little Po was thrilled to see his grandfather turn into his favourite superhero and very innocently asked me “and Ajji where are you? ” meaning where is your sexy persona on your mug?

I don’t have the heart to tell him that even though I’ll soon be sixty I don’t think I’d like to be a sexty hulk.

What about you ?

This definitely banished all sad thoughts of the impending New Year and made me look forward to yet another satisfying day with the kids.

When she’s not busy chasing her grandchildren who love making her run around, she indulges in her passions of reading, writing, meeting friends and watching movies. And somewhere between all this she enjoys travelling and cooking!


  1. Awwww!! this is such a cute post. I am sure that the love of a grandchild is the best thing for grandparents and you are lucky to have such an adorable one. And just like the little one I also have a question, where is the better half of sexty Hulk ? My suggestion, you better gear up and make 60 your 30.
