NAGging time !

I bet everyone of us has had this experience in their childhood.

Meal times are painful times. Our parents/grandparents used to come with horrendous looking food in huge quantities and go ahead stuffing it in our mouth. Most of it was stuff that either we never wanted to see on our plates or something we totally abhored. And we tried to shoo away Mom's hands which were aimed for our mouths.

The worst thing to happen was that many a time, this used to happen when we were in no mood to have the stuff, nor did we have enough space in the tummy. It was then that we correlated our 'feeders' to demon incarnations.

And the bathing.. oh that was hell too. It was indeed a pain to have a bath at unearthly hours.. and during monsoons and the winter.. but what to do.. the demons were ruling us those days... :(

And then the make up time.. what with parents trying to comb our hair, put on all sorts of creams and powders on our face to make it appealing to the neighborhood aunty and such people? We used to completely despise the fact that our faces were being smeared with some crap stuff that we did not like.

Am I right in saying that most of us have gone through this hell?
