Today, I have a big secret to tell you.
Shhh! Don’t tell anyone. Promise?
There is someone in this house, who knows everything. Nothing can be hidden from her.
Even when she is watching the TV, she will know, I am eating cookies in the kitchen.
When I come back from school, she knows that I had a fight with Sam. I swear, I haven’t even opened my mouth. Just by my angry face!
I don’t tell her, but she knows that I have got my Maths marks.
Sometimes, I go to the bathroom and cry, she will know. Then she will make Maggi for me, to cheer me up.
She even knows, I haven’t finished my dabba, even before I take it out from my bag.
I pour my Bournvita, into kitty’s plate and she will scream from the bedroom. “Are you drinking your milk or giving it to Kitty?”
She gets up before everybody and sleeps after everybody. How does she get the energy, I don’t know!
She knows what I like, what Pappa doesn’t like. But never tells me what she wants.
She will hold my best birthday parties and drives me to classes.
And when she starts telling a bedtime story, I am already asleep.
But she has one problem. Actually two!
She worries so much!
She worries when I go to school or go out and play with my friends. She no longer sends me to the market. She makes me repeat GTBT, everyday. Sometimes, I get very scared then. But I don’t show. She stills knows. She gives me a big hug and tells me, everything will be alright.
And then she tells me not to waste my time and study. But I’m still a kid no? I hate these classes that she keeps driving me to. Then she will ask what did I learn there? I can’t say, nothing. Because, she will call my teachers and find out. Funnily, they all are her friends. They tell her everything.
I think she has X-Ray vision. She must be the Hulk’s cousin or must be SuperMan’s secret sister. Or Both!
You know who, I am talking about no?
