Have you heard of the phrase, "You won't get it, its a new generation thing"?
I guess, yes, if you were one of those rebellious teens who thought they knew everything, you might have blabbered it once in your lifetime to your parents, uncles, aunty or grandparents.
I had so called dejavu experience recently.
A few months ago, my little cousin visited me.
To introduce her, i would say, she was the one whom i have cradled, changed diaper and given the sun baths, yada yada. Hope that helps. So, one day, i still remember the time and date this incident took place.
We were at mall, trying to get her a prom dress. And being a one shop person, anxiously, i asked her after visiting the 6th shop, what kind of dress was she exactly looking for? And the response i got, made me bite my nails. It was "Its a new generation thing, you won't get it".
Don't they say you are never prepared for everything in this life.
Ok, so i was prepared hear this from my forth coming kids or grand kids, but from a cousin who is just 5yr younger to me??? Hell, No!
My heart stopped beating for that moment and i gave a silent look in the mirror across.
I swear, i felt like sinking in the earth at that moment, but the mirrors around wouldn't let me escape the reality.
I narrated this incident to my mom over the phone, and i could still hear her giggling over the fact and consoling me saying " You are getting old, my bachaa".
Tip to all who accompany their younger siblings for shopping: Never, ever ask what they want.
