“Amma, you will have breakfast ready in half an hour nah? I need to leave ASAP,” my daughter had called out five times before I took my eyes off my facebook messages. “Amma, don’t you think you are overdoing it? Some of us have to work,” she said angrily.
“Vinny, you might find it tough to believe, but I also happen to be working,” I replied, irritated that I had to stop posting my A-Z link on various forums and get to work in the kitchen. Cooking has become the distraction, interruption, whatever, nowadays.
“Sundari, we need to attend that wedding tomorrow morning.” I didn’t realise that my husband was talking to me, immersed in my Kindle app. After all, the book I was reading was too absorbing. Venkat got impatient after calling out to me thrice and raised his voice, “Can you get away from your phone for a few minutes and listen to me?”
I raised my glazed eyes up to him and said, “Of course I am listening.”
“So what did I say?”
“You want to have dinner?”
And the tug-of-war continues... people vs phone. You know who the winner is ;)
