The girls were playing at our place. Since it was not a school day the next day, thanks to the bundh, they had a late dinner and then around 9.30pm, Lil D and I went to drop off the other two at their respective homes. When we were on the way to the second one’s house (S), we had the following conversation.
Lil D: Mamma, I want to go to X’s house and see how the baby has grown up.
Me: No way. It’s almost ten o’clock and we’ve got to go home.
S: Aunty, is it really ten o’clock?
S: My God, we’ve been playing for five hours!
Me: Yes, when we are with friends, time flies, doesn’t it?
Lil D: Yes, and when we are with parents, we are always wondering what they are going to say.
