school,exams and boudis on the rok ......

And to think I have degenerated into one of the mothers who hang around in flocks ,droves,gaggles,herds and what have you, outside the various schools ( in my locality and others - the enterprising often hire out premises to these ladies and offer them cha biskoot service also - priya marie ;and I speak with authority because the pretty and vacuous Mohor is one of these ladies - oh how I digress ... i do it in print because Im not allowed to speak much at home ,thanks to T A & T . ) haranguing their kids to deliver their best in the exams - and Im doing pretty much the same to poor not so little T2 ( shes taller than T1's friend M )who is very puzzled - and comes back feeling guilty if she hasnt managed all the questions - which would make her a candidate for the 1st 3 , (which she'sefinitely NOT ) but the urge is there , which I count as a very positive sign ....

She's not like T1 whose reports always read "Very intelligent but lacks attention span"(when she was small) ; this graduated to " Very intelligent but lacks application" and such similar statements . Her teachers were always very suspicious of her intentions , good or bad , Inever was sure , but one teacher whispered to me , after the parent teacher meeting - "SHEs always laughing " - . She was unwilling to make it a full fledged complaint for fear of what T1 might have done . Knowing her , probably nothing , but the teacher was petrified .

T2's teachers however are full of what a sweet and sincere child she is - which is not quite true , but which probable has its genesis in the expressions that clever T2 employs - woebegone , with her lower lip sticking out just so , so that you want to cuddle her and make it okay or simply bland and so deferential ( all teachers love chamchas and Tani knows that )So despite being academically less proficient than the good T1, she enjoys a far better reputation..!

eve's lungs said...

T1 is your little pal who hogs the desktop and T2 is her sad little sister who's always whining about the said hogging ...

Rimi - anything will do nicely. I do love the green eye though - is it yours by any chance ?

erebus said...

T1 is no pal of mine... quite the opposite actually... .. but yeah... I guess I know who's who now? Thanks for the clarification.. :)

BTW: I used to get flattering comments in my primary school progress reports as well... so shows what they know..
