If I were a baby again

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 4; the fourth edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton.

I heard the alarm say "Tring Tring..Tring Tring.." I'm confused, is it not supposed to say "Cuckoo Cuckoo" like I configured that day with so much pain. Damn you electronics! Time to wake up and put on my kettle to boil. Thank god it is a weekend!

I'm feeling lifted, this feels damn good. Yeah like in a smooth roller coaster.. Hmm.. heavenly... Huh there is mom. She is looking very pretty today. Oh yeah I'm not wearing my contacts !
Excuse me did I say mom? Isnt she supposed to be sitting in India probably cooking a good dinner. Oh man sometimes I can be very dreamy or may be I'm not.I'm wearing a frilly dolly dress and looking like a ...errr..BABY!!

Should I say yipee or should I cry. And let me see .. the calendar shows 1983 !
(And yeah there goes my age..)
Whew you daisy blue so much for suggesting the topic!

Now that I'm a baby,I might as well as enjoy this. What more, I am a collaboration of 2009 in 1983.
So here I am, being pampered by well,  whew, so many people in here. Looks like so much fun,with balloons all over. Wonder what this is all about. May be a party !

Oh there comes my Grandmom, wish she was alive now. She used to give me the best sweets ever. 
By the way thats my name in the wall.. and its a birthday banner. How stupid of me not to notice the date in the calendar. Its my day.. Hurray !!!

This feels so nice and here is my uncle taking my pictures in a Kodak camera. Here comes my dad with his big mustache.And thank god he took that away in the later years.

I cant recognise many people here. I'm not supposed to recognise right? I'm a baby.

What is that big lady doing in here? Oh no dont feed me , my stomach feels heavy. No no..Please..Oh oh..Yuck ! I'm sorry..but you didnt leave me any choice other than puke!

Hmm.. this is exciting , 
I can do whatever I want ,yet noone looks at me weirdly. 
I eat what I want and I do not bother if I'm fat.
I dont have to strain my legs and walk miles, someone is always there to carry me.
May be I dont wear what I want, but definitely I talk what I want.
No exams,no resumes and no emails.
No cellphones ringing,no laptops clicking and no TVs yelling.I can really live without these.

Life is going good.
Hey I'm cutting a cake, its not a black Forest or a Dark chocolate its a simple plain vanilla cake with a candle on it. And here comes my first doll.
Its lovely and I am the princess.

"Cuckoo..Cuckoo" there goes my alarm.I get up and put my kettle on.
"Hey you have got cake on your face. Where did you go,a birthday party?" J asks.
"May be.................????? " I reply back with a perplexed smile.

P.S : This short fiction is inspired by the movie "17 Again"

@Daisy Blue

No, I don't have any feelings, positive or negative, about the topic. I happen to experiment with all forms of expression when I write. Sometimes I am as cute as a rainbow while at other times I am downright evil!

Daisy Blue said...

I thought I visited all but had missed your post ! Sorry..

First of all thanks for suggesting a topic so full of possibilities that let the inner kid in us come out :-)

Sweet post.That's a nice dream to have especially if you can take back stuff from it ! -- the cake on the face :-) when you woke up.

Unless of course J heard you sleep-talking and decided to mess with your mind and the cake on your face was not from 1983 :-)

Shruti said...

Hey cute fiction! Even i wrote a fiction! That finish with the cake piece on face was too good :)

PurpleHeart said...

Happy first birthday, cute baby !!! I could picturise all your family in the party, except for your granny (don't think I have met her).

ARJuna said...

Cutely narrated, witty and humorous all at the same time...whew!!!
The trip into childhood was short and sweet not much details and yet so beautifully crafted!!!
Great going.
P.S. Love your blog theme!!!

Sorry Daisy, Honest mistake. You were one of the first commenters on mine and I missed !

I'll make up to you by commenting on at least 3 of your past posts (of course after reading it :-) )

Dreamer said...

Wonderful imagination. It's such fun to imagine a baby's thoughts being articulated. Thats why "Look who's talking" remains one of my favorite movies :)

Mahesh Kalaal said...


It is bit special as it is being written by the person who suggested the topic.

Neatly crafted post with fun flavours

No exams,no resumes and no emails.
No cellphones ringing,no laptops clicking...
Yeah, i do wish the same.

As i dont know how to read such type of posts/narrations, i could not abstract total summary. But, i liked it in parts. I will read it again to grasp it completely
