Itís fun! Shop, stop, cats, ghosts & what not

This incident always comes to my mind when I think of going to shop at Big Bazaar, Thane, on Sundays.

As usual, mom and me hopped into our car with a long list of items ó grocery for mom and cosmetics and a pair of slippers for me.

Big Bazaar is at its best on Sundays with a huge crowd of moms and dads carrying cute kiddies around.

As mom entered the grocery section and started checking her long list I rushed to Lakme Shop looking for eyeliners and nail polish.

It took mom half-an-hour to complete her shopping and get the items packed.

Meanwhile, I was done with my shopping and was moving around watching children scream and play and elevators go up and down.

Soon, mom was ready to move. I picked up her bags and mine too and we headed to the parking lot.

Within 20 minutes we reached home. Out of curiosity, I asked mom if I could see what she had purchased.

I started matching her list with the items in the bags and soon realised I had picked up someone else's bags.

There was no sugar but two packets of salt, no butter but cheese, no biscuits but a packet of bread, no oil but two packets of ghee.

We rushed back to Big Bazaar to return the packets but no one had returned ours. We had no option but to keep the wrong packets and order afresh the stuff we needed.

Now, whenever I go to Big Bazaar I make sure to check my bags before returning home.

This happened during recent rains. I went to a park near my house with three friends. There were slides, swings and sea-saws and my friends began enjoying. I hopped onto my favourite colourful swing and began showing my swinging skills to friends.
