The Ice-cream/ Kulfi Conundrum

I can't eat ice cream after dinner. I don't know why, but i cant.
My sister, how ever, is obsessed with ice ream after dinner.

I love ice cream before dinner, but for some reason, no one allows that.

My family and I went out for dinner on Sunday. (Nandos. It rocks)
After dinner, I was pretty darn full, considering I had overeaten as usual, but my sister decided she just HAD to have ice cream. 

My parents consented to her request, and decided to buy her some form the nearest place, which was some random little corner shop right next to the road. My sister ordered ice cream right away, and naturally, when i saw it, i wanted some. I apprehensive, though, and i decided to taste it first. I asked to try the chocolate one (because, lets face it, its the best flavour there is) and took the tiny plastic spoon with the frozen (supposed-to-be) deliciousness on it from the man. 

I ate it. And winced. Because it did not taste like ice cream at all. It tasted like kulfi. and when you're expecting ice cream, getting kulfi in it's stead does not taste good. Especially if you don't even like kulfi in the first place. And it didn't even taste like chocolate flavoured kulfi. Just regular old kulfi.

Needless to say, I didn't buy any. But my sister, in her ice cream obsessed state, had already bought it, and was forcing herself to take more than a couple of licks.
(yes, I am a bit of a sadist when it comes to my sister, but in my defense, she was shoving a box of French fries under my nose the other day, telling me I couldn't have any because I finished my own. Mean.)

Anyway, after I finished that awful bit of non-icecream, i was faced with another dilemma. Where do I throw the tiny plastic spoon? I looked high and low, but i didnt see a trash can anywhere. In the end I went back to the fake ice cream shop keeper and asked him if he had a trash can. He nodded in confirmatin and took the tiny plastic spoon from my hand.
Then he THREW IT ON THE ROAD. In front of me. He didn't even own a trash can. He throws all his trash on the side of the road. 
This was my facial expression -->  :O
What is wrong with people? And then they complain about the litter and the pollution.

Later, I saw a rickshaw with this written n the back of it:

" Horn itsni zor say nahin bajao. Hamari qaum so rahi hai"

(Don't blow your horn so loudly. Our nation is sleeping.)

Sometimes I think it's the rickshaw drivers that have the most sense. 


  1. KULFI!!! (Yeah, I read your title and went insane.)

    RICHSHAW!!! (Yeah, I read the last bit of this post and went insane.)
