#16 When the cook in me was born :D

What happens when G is back home…?? She gets lazy to the highest order, obviously :P
What happens to her mum ?? She starts off with the much expected universal motherly harangues of G not taking any interests in the kitchen and still not being able cook anything on her own and how is she going to manage once she gets a job / gets married …blah blah..
What does G do ?? She hears but doesn’t listen, mum’s rantings falling on deaf ears. She replies with a groan, and gets back to quiescence again ;)
What does her mum do ? She gives up all hopes on G, praying to the Lords to instill some ‘lady-like’ responsibilities in the kid one fine day…
Then what happens when her mum n dad go out of city for a few days ? G decides to surprise her mum by cooking something for her :) The night they were supposed to return, she cooks ladyfingers with no darn idea in the world about which all ingredients to put and in what proportions. Relying on friends' instructions on the phone and a vague sense of approximation, she nervously sets out for the mission..

Then what happens to the concoction?? hmmm… looks pretty much like ladyfingers…tastes like the same too….except for……….omg….a little extra salt !! Dang !! G cannot even make a simple veggie to please her mum :(
What does G too.. prepares herself for another nice lecture from her mum when she returns. And brushes off all hopes of shopping with her this weekend..
What happens when her parents return late in the night?? Tired and exhausted, they freshen up and ask if there is something left of dinner to eat. G quietly serves them the veggie she made, fingers crossed, prayers on.

Mum’s reaction?? Scowl…?? no wait…… Frown?? …. Anger…??
naaaaahhh….
one sweet smile, a hug, and her words that this was one of the tastiest things she’s ever had…
G….?? couldn’t have felt happier... She aint a bad daughter afterall ;)
