Look what i found today...
my oldest "BUDDAAAYYY GIFTTT"...yippeee!!!
it was tucked away safely in an old closet in the store room and conveniently forgotten about...until today, whn i happened to open the dusty drawer and find 5 lil froggies peeping at me with mic in hand ...and tht got a lotta memories gushing back!!
My silly lil heart juss needs an excuse to do a flip flop and reign in nostalgia and what better excuse than finding ur 5th birthday gift after all these years...
All these years definitely has taken its toll on the poor lil things which were far more functioning then than now... (i love u mom for having carefully preserving it all these years...muaaahhh!!)
Much to my moms amusement, i tried placing some batteries frantically and checked if it still was working :-/...my dad and di were laughing all this while as they remembered it was with the same zeal and enthusiasm that i had opened my gift on my 5th birthday...
But to my dissapointment it dint work anymore..the "rock star" froggies juss refused to croak as i continued performing auditory function tests by ringing the doorbell making the neighbours wonder if i'd finally lost my marbles to not notice the door wch was kept wide open...but all in vain, the lil froggies had gone deaf n dumb too and could no longer sense sound signals and croak in sync as they used to :((...damn these good-for-nothin battery operated toys!hmpf!! :(
But needless to say,i was really happy on finding it ...was kinda reliving the past again as my mom and dad narrated incidents from my childhood...though they got a bit too carried away and also brought up the vases i had broken, the number of fights i had gotten into with my kiddo classmates ,the pranks i had pulled on my classroom teachers, and the tactics i had tried to get my name removed from the harmonium classes wch my mom had forcibly enrolled me into...heehee.
I quickly distracted their attention back to the "discovered treasure" lest they remember a "lil less adorable" things i had done as a child :-/...
Coming back to my "frog band",it was only when i dusted and wiped it clean that i noticed one of the microphones they held was lying detached wch i managed to attach back after a lotta effort...The small lil board at the back (giving it a total rock band effect) wch said "THE FROG BAND" was now missing...:(
But pri has not lost hope yet...it must be lying somewhere for sure...and she is determined to find it and complete the "frog band" wch her parents had soo lovingly gifted her at 12 am on the 3rd of june 19 yrs back...(my heart juss did a flipflop again and is now wearing a funny hat and singing "summer of 69" ,guitar in hand)
Tomorrow i plan on cleaning every corner of the store room again...*james bond music in the background*
sigh!...ive suddenly started missing the "pink casio" wch my sis had gifted me when i was eight :-/
I know its got to be there...SOMEWHERE!
