Little Boys and Littler Girls

Once upon a time (to be more specific, this evening!), a little boy and a slightly littler girl were waiting for their respective parents to finish their work at photo studio.

The two kids started trying to communicate with each other. This is how.
Boy: Leans back on wall, hands tucked into pockets, stares at girl
Girl: Fiddles with her little Dupatta, smiles shyly at the boy
.
In a few minutes, Boy becomes bolder, walks upto Girl. Girl smiles, touches him on cheek. Boy did not expect this, hurries to hide behind his Mommy.
.
Boy asks (booming voice): ‘Why is she touching me?’
Mummy (embarassed): ‘No she isn’t touching you!’
.
Boy: ‘Oh yes, she IS. Why is she doing it?
Mummy (exasperated): ‘Er, because she thinks you are her friend’
.
Boy (does not look very convinced): ‘Is it because I am a Handsome Boy?’
Mummy: (Searches for place to hide her face)
.
A few minutes later, Girl prepares to leave with her dad. Turns back to give that final look, before she walks out through that door!
.
Boy (looking sad) – Turns to Mummy and asks: ‘Where is she going?’
Mummy (with a sigh of relief): ‘She’s going home’
.
Boy (looking perplexed): ‘But, Is she not going to marry me????’
Mummy: Aaaaaarrrrrrggggggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!
.
………And to think the Boy is not even 4 years old !!!! Sigh!!!!!!!! ………
.
.
.
EDITED TO ADD (2-Sep-10):
.
This morning….
.
Mummy (asks teasingly): The girl didn’t marry you, huh?
Boy (rewinds to last night): Hmmm, no, she didn’t!
.

Mummy (being mean): Why???
Boy (unflinching): She changed her mind! She thought I was a rose-bush!!!
.
Mummy (explains patiently): ‘You can marry ONLY when you are 30 and not 4, GOT IT?????’
Blushing Boy: Nods, smiles, and casually mentions Princess Jasmine!!!

Of Wishes and Genies

Once upon a time, a little boy found an old plastic box (carefully preserved by his mommy, to store whatever-manages-to-fit-inside at unspecified-later-date).

To make things interesting, his Mommy said to him: ‘Rub the box and see if a Genie appears!’

The little boy is very excited, and rubs the box vigorously. The mommy jumps with bang, and announced, in a booming voice: ‘I am the Genie. Make a wish, little master’.

The boy did not flinch. He replied, ‘I wish for Princess Jasmine’

The mommy gaped!

The boy repeated himself: ‘I said, I wish for Princess Jasmine. She lives THERE’ (pointing towards the TV).

So off went the mommy, to make his little wish come true… to turn the TV on to seek Princess Jasmine!

Incidentally, it snowed that day, and there was no signal 😦 so the Genie was quite powerless!

And then, Voila! Youtube rescued the Genie.

And this is what the little boy watched:
