Orey the too much

She is 9 years younger to me. But then no one will think so when they listen in on our conversations. Plus she being taller, slimmer and prettier than moi helped reduce the gap to almost 4 years. And the fact that we kind of look alike does nothing to prove we are second cousins and not siblings.

I was always this elder cousin who visited once a month on Sundays. Her bro being just a year younger to me was the preferred best friend; we always had loads to discuss and she was the 'baby sis' whom we let walk with us to Elliot's beach or bought ice cream with our pocket money and took to movies that we knew were 'right' for her...the kid for whom we played 'Monopoly' and dutifully lost or sat and made paper bags with and received with a HUGE grin of surprise those wooden blocks painted with 'Yin-Yan' pictures and the cute little stuffed toy key chains she made for our birthdays... our little princess!

That said i don't know when the nature of our relationship changed. Somewhere along that path at some poignant moment we met and she ceased to be a kid. The looking after did continue but the era of long phone conversations had begun. Conversations on everything under the sun --from fashion to how hot Brad Pitt was in Troy, plans to beat 'The bro' to pulp for not buying us enough new clothes to scheming behind my manager's back...everything two young girls would talk except that i didn't know how much i had NOT grown up till then :)

Now as i sit in a big home far away unable to close my ears to her "Oh my god i am so fat" scream and look at her sling her bag on her shoulders and walk to school or listen to stories about school and how mean 'Akka' was or what Kamala did...i just realise how much i miss that not-so-little girl.

Ammukuttz, Miss you...and the Dudezie too :p

Psst: Trying to download 'Hero' so i can sleep :D

Oye..I always pictured Ammukutz to be about 1.5 years older than you, a little shorter than you, but with longer hair and she buying you icecreams! Now, I have a whole lot of re-shooting to do!

aha - the "sit far away from home and think of family members" phenomenon - been there, done that, doing that, will do that ...
