Little Boy Blue

Towards the end of a decade, when the 'flower power' generation were swinging towards what the rest of society considered normal, a set of parents were eagerly awaiting the birth of their first baby... the flower power seemed to have rubbed off on the baby, coz in later years, it wished it had been born at least a couple of decades earlier... the baby's maternal grandmother was also eagerly awaiting its birth, since the baby's mother was the only girl child and so, the granny's favourite.... the baby was very inconsiderate as it chose a late hour to be born.. but he(yup, was a boy) was quite inclined to come out, and didnt cause much trouble...
a few hours later, he was brought into the room, where he would spend the next few days.. and that was where he was supposed to lie, with little cries in between that were indicators of entry or exit of materials.... but quite apparently, he was an attention freak, for within 24 hours of his birth, he decided to test his destiny and the nerves of his granny...
while his mother slept because of the sedation and his dad was at home for some well deserved sleep, and granny was dreaming of her newborn grandson's future, he decided to question whether he had a future at all...he just stopped breathing, and within a few seconds, turned blue, scaring his granny out of her wits.. but she wasn't one to give up without a fight...
in the dead of the night, she ran up three floors, carrying him, searching each floor for a duty doctor/ nurse... she finally found one, and got the equally frightened nurse to force the breath back into him... and was rewarded with a happy gurgle from him, as though a question had been answered...
years later, he still has the blues, albeit of a different kind, and writes about them in his blog... today is his 27th birthday...

until next time, what are you waiting for? wish me...

So this is your claim to fame. I don't have anything this startling. But impatience was always a part of me. Expecting me on the 27th, mom got admitted 21st evening. And I made my presence felt next morning :))

Wishing you a very happy birthday... well I was born at a time when flower power was going out of power and modern society was in its way... I always feel I am in the middle of both eras... weird it is :)

By writing like one of us mortals:)

garfy said...

*sniffle* U have an adventurous life from the very start and also a very precocious kiddi-hood n you wont even treat regular readers to a brownie? How MEAN is that!!!! *glare*

manuscrypts said...

awww judy, am i that bad?? :(

garfy: a bunch of objections!!
i object to the word precocious coz i had to look up a dictionary for that... then i found out that it couldnt be applied to my kiddihood!! so i object to that too.. regulars readers who pass loaded comments like whether i changed my birthdate for a post!! hmmmph... brownie?? how bout a black eye??!!

blokes said...

aayushmaan bhava vats ( as Manu as in manush has been taken up!LOL)Blessings baccha!

garfy said...

Oh cmon... wid the nurse having to force breath into you the word precocious aptly describes your infancy! Smart kid! ;)

Besides damn the weird keyboard I have... it was supposed to be precious! :P

And I didnt ever presume that anyone wud change their bday for a post... I was quite intrigued to see someone's bday fall exactly on the day they blog usually! N no brownie for me??? *bawl* MEANIE!!!
