Super Duper Kid, Part I


Ladies and gentlemen! Presenting, the adventures of the super-duper kid, the then alter ego of mild mannered Vinni. I crack myself up when I remember all the things I did when I was a kid. When you are young, the funny thing is, you really don’t even give a damn because you know your folks will bail you out.

Misadventure 1

I always wondered what this tiny little thing was that used to be sticking out between my legs. I was around 3 years old then, and one day with great difficulty I climbed the table by stacking up some boxes and made a make-shift ladder and got hold of a knife. Just when I was getting rid of the stupid little wart, my mom was like “Vinniiiiiiiiii! And then I was ceremoniously escorted back to my room and given a teddy to play with. It was also my first sex education class, when I was told how important the wart was to make more Vinni’s in the future.

Misadventure 2

Then there was this other time when we were in Bombay, and dad had recently introduced me to the great bird called the chicken. My brother used to get it, from somewhere. Somewhere. I once asked him where he used to get it from. He said, he used to go all the way to Delhi. I was awe struck! He took two hours to reach Delhi and back and those tasty little birds in various shapes. He even conned me into giving the leg pieces for all the hard work. In fact for all the hard work he used to do then, I still give him the leg pieces.

Misadventure 3

I used to love jam as a kid. Finishing a bottle of jam a day, was the usual day of some hyperactivity and some loopy moments. It used to be bliss. Then one day my brother broke the sad news to me, eating jam caused ‘Jamosis’. In this very common condition, mostly suffered by kids of my age, the body becomes a lump of red mass. You lose the shape of the body, become like Pappu who seemed to have a bad case of Jamosis. I still think twice before having that jam with my bread.

Misadventure 4

One fateful day, the maid servant asked for some tea after a hard day’s work. Under strict instructions, I was not allowed to work the gas stove. The only other option was the microwave. So I took some milk, some sugar (10 spoon fulls) and then finally tea powder. Mixed it up, wondering why the tea powder was refusing to mix. I was still wondering why the whole concoction was so thick. Maybe, that’s how the experts made it. I put it into the microwave and voila! Fresh creamy tea served in 5 minutes. She did not turn up the next week and I think she also asked for a pay hike.
