The Spat

So once upon a time, Aie and Baba were having a kitchen spat. I mean, what is a marriage without an occasional spat, right? Right? So, like most spats, it had no reason and one thing led to another. Lil Chip was standing by, watching the goings-on curiously. In the end, he decided to referee.

Chip: Aie, Baba, wait. Don’t fight. Let me get you a beer.
Baba: No, Chip. I don’t want a beer right now.
Chip: OK. I will get Aie a beer.
Aie: I don’t want a beer, Chip.
Chip: Then…. I can’t help you.

With that, this odd trio wish all US-wasis a happy July 4th!

He is the quintessential American trying to solve internal problems of all others, in this case two Indians. -:))

It is so astonishing to see the insight children have and their uncanny 6th sense. Many times, They act like barometers of the parents mood.

You should thank your stars that Chip didn't say - Then…. I can’t help you. Let me help myself to a beer.

Chip is awesome :)

Reminded me when another Indian couple I know were having a fight. Their son (who at that time didn't understand English) told them - if you want to fight in front of me, then fight in English.
