Naughty Child – Green Ears.

cute-girl-reading-book-cartoon-illustration-100199016A doctor father gives in to his naughty daughter’s whim. What has he left himself in for?

When my daughter was 3 years old, she bawled and threw a tantrum every time she had to get ready for school.

Every morning my wife found it difficult to get her to comb her hair or put on her uniform.

I hit upon a brilliant plan. My daughter would assist me in my toilette and grooming, while my wife got her ready for school. So my daughter combed my hair while my wife did hers.  The squirt helped me to don my shirt while her mother helped her put on hers. For a change there was laughter instead of tears in my house every morning. The child found it amusing that her tall daddy did not know how to dress up.

This worked well for quite some time, till one fine day the foolishness of it was brought home to roost.

That busy day, after sending off my wife and daughter to her school, I went to the hospital where I worked. One of the patients was getting critical and I had to arrange for an ambulance and shift him to a hospital with better facilities. When I was in the reception of the crowded hospital, I saw many people regarding me curiously. But it was too hectic a day, for me to wonder why the whole hospital was giving me funny looks.

After most of day’s work was done, I went into the men’s room to have a wash.Glancing up into the mirror, I got the answer to the reason behind the curious

Stuck on both my ears were two bright GREEN sticker Bindhis*.

While her mother had decorated her forehead, my daughter had embellished my EARS!

*A bindi (meaning “a drop, small particle, dot”), or a pottu/bottu/tikuli is a forehead decoration worn in South Asia Traditionally it is a bright dot of red color applied in the center of the forehead close to the eyebrows, but it can also consist of a sign or piece of jewelry worn at this location.
