serial killer 6


“what is the point in crying? Go study. Pass the exam,” I heard FIL roaring, in the living room.

Obviously a believer in the rather rarely-practiced phenomenon: When all else fails. talk directly to the offending character on TV.

  1. making me roll on the floor first thing in the morning is a good thing. i need the exercise.

    small question: giving a talking to the reflection in the mirror helps? let me know if offending character begins mending his ways.

  2. Um. I’ve been known to do this a lot. In cinema halls too.

    It was a Venkatesh movie, you see, and he’d just been beaten up and had his knees shot and the heroine was being held in the departing train by the goons, so when he started chasing the train it was the least I could do to cheer him on, surely?

  3. πŸ™‚ like abha, i too thought your first born was getting a piece of grandpa’s mind.

    this reminds me of my mom prayerfully pressing her palms together when aiyappan comes on the screen!

    love your little treasure posts.

  4. LOL! I’ve been reading your posts for sometime. They are quite a riot πŸ™‚ I do this with cricket. “Why don’t you hit a six!” πŸ™‚

  5. ‘Rarely followed’..not at all, am. How else do you think the Indian cricket team would function, if millions of people did not shout at them from their living rooms?
    And wait for Rakhi Sawant’s swayamvar, when millions will stand on their sofas screaming, “No, no not THAT one??!!”

  6. I have been known to mutter under my breath at them. Never yet addressed the screen out loud.
    Grandpa sounds awe inspiring!
    (Pssssst- do the characters listen to him?)

  7. lol! It’s very funny when you read someone else doing it. When I do, am very ernest and I really mean well for the character you know πŸ˜‰

  8. Brings back lovely memories of my grandmother, standing up , hands cupped in prayer, chanting the Manipravaalam when Nitish frickin’ Bharadwaj came on TV as Krishna.

    Never had such a stitch in my side laughing since:-)

    The closest I came was the Blair Witch Project which had me cowering on my sofa, screaming, “Don’t go into that f***ing forest for chrissakes!”

  9. SS: hey there delurker! thanks for delurking.

    chox: why you are loling sue is another instance of your ulu allegiance; Andhra shld give you a state award for loyalty.
