“Come on, lets go”, said Mrs Chitterchatter venturing out of the bedroom. “All left without me?”, she murmured as there was no response. By then, she had reached the living room.

She was aghast to check the scene. Mr Balanced was neck deep into the mobile. Giant Little Kid and Innocent Baby were busy checking out the photos from the gallery of mom’s mobile. They were so engrossed that no one took notice of her and her growing irritation.

She cleared the throat.

“Yes”, said the man without raising his head.
“Are we not going?”

Meanwhile, Giant Little Kid and Innocent Baby got busy in clicking the selfie.

“Where?”, came the most absent-minded reply from Mr Balanced. It added fuel to the fire.
“No…. Yes”, he said hurriedly correcting his mistake.

Before the angry barrage from Mrs Chitterchatter could take place, the kids broke into fight.

“Now my turn”, demanded the girl.
“When the mobile was with you, why did you not click it?”, countered the boy.
“It did not occur to me that time. Now it did. So…”
“So, I should give you now? You have to wait”, asserted the boy.

Snatching the phone from the little hands, making odd faces and fabricating fake smiles, he continued his selfie spree.
“He clicks only his selfie. Check the gallery in your mobile Mom. He says selfies are better from the ‘first floor’…that means only he should take the selfie as he is the tallest? So what if he is taller? Some times he asks me to pose and then clicks his selfie, fooling me. Cheater”, grudged the girl, getting closer to mother.

Mr Balanced had a sigh of relief as Mrs Chitterchatter turned her attention to kids by now.

“What’s selfie from ‘first floor’?”, Mrs Chitterchatter asked as she was little puzzled; for they were staying on the 10th floor.

“Mom that means, I extend my hand up and then click a selfie. What do you think happens when a 6′ tall person stretches his hand? It quite near the ceiling…and thats selfie from first floor. Got it?”, explained the boy.

“Hmmm”
“And that means when I need it, the mobile hangs up saying no enough memory”, reflected Mrs Chitterchatter. This thought paved way for her twisted mood to resurface.

“My boy, why don’t you enroll for modelling?”, checked the mother with the chap.

“Good idea. But do they take a teenager with specs and pimpled cheeks as model?”, asked the boy instantly. He continued clicking selfies by twisting his neck at varied angles without any interruption.

Situation turned hotter. There was a silence that usually is followed by the storm.

Giant Little Kid, rolled his eyes to the corner to gauge the situation. He instantly kept the phone down and said, “You took long to get ready, Mom. We all were waiting for you to come. Now that you are here, lets go”.
“Yes, we were ready long before”, added Mr Balanced.
“Late…who…me? But I couldnt decide what to wear!Was running out of ideas”, confessed Mrs Chitterchatter
“But we were talking about selfie, Mom. He is distracting you”, opined Innocent Baby.

“We had only one job of getting ourselves ready. Unlike us, you had errands to run before we could venture out for the movie”, articulated Mr Balanced to diffuse the situation.

That cooled her down instantly. With much love in her eyes, she glanced at her better half. Extending her hand, she helped him get up from sofa chair.

“Hey Dad, take a selfie with mom, right there. Thats the best spot in our house. Hang on for a while. Let me fetch the selfie stick for you. Selfies are best taken from the first floor!”, suggested the boy. Off he went to fetch the selfie stick.

Mrs Chitterchatter and Mr Balanced were stupefied by the indomitable selfie spirit that sprinted the young chap!

By the way, have you tried taking selfie from the “first” floor?

I would be modelling like a dumb later to find that they took a snap of them. . And yes, selfie from first floor happens with me too. I am the shortest person here. So I prefer the top angle.. Loved this selfie post. . I is for Its OK not to be OK. https://syncwithdeep.wordpress.com/2018/04/10/i-its-ok-to-not-be-okay-blogchattera2z-atozchallenge-atoz/

    I am shortie too! I think its ok to be not taller…selfie from ground floor is good enough for pouted looks 🙂 Thanks Deepa.

Varad · April 10, 2018 at 8:19 am

Another fun episode from the nutty family. Loving this series, Anagha. And yeah, whatever selfies I take are naturally from the first floor only 😀

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 9:33 am

    Thanks Varad

Akshata Ram · April 10, 2018 at 9:02 am

This is really fun, loved the banter and the first floor selfie thing is fab!

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 9:34 am

    Hehehe…yes its really fab! Thanks Akshata.

Meenakshi · April 10, 2018 at 9:04 am

Haha…A scene that plays nowsdays in every household with tempers running high and yet you managed to add your humour to the situation and almost gave a twist to the saga ! Loved this 🙂

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 9:35 am

    Life is like “Kurkure”…tedha hai par mera hai. Hahahaha! Thanks Meenakshi.

BellyBytes · April 10, 2018 at 10:01 am

It’s always mummy’s fault isn’t it? I have really short arms since I am a really short person and can vouch that selfies taken by taller persons do come out better. Incidentally I used to snigger at my niece who used to take selfies but she is having the last laugh as she is now a selfie expert. Incidentally did you know that there is a special course at Oxford University no less for taking selfies. Can anything be more scientific than that?

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 10:23 am

    Is it? Thats a news…Let me inform Giant Little kid and his parents about this course!
    Hahaha!
    Thanks Sunita

Balaka · April 10, 2018 at 10:59 am

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 11:01 am

    Gen next always has something new to offer, I suppose! Thanks Balaka.

    Thanks dear.

mammaspeaks · April 10, 2018 at 1:13 pm

Ha ha, though I have only one daughter, I can totally relate to the situation. Every one is ready before I am, because I have numerous chores to do before. My mobile battery is almost always drained, and I find never seen selfies of my daughter in various faces, poses and accessories (not sure which app she has downloaded that makes her up in head gears from different countries).

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 2:18 pm

    I wonder if this selfie virus is in air always and affects only the young generation!
    Thanks for visiting.

      mammaspeaks · April 10, 2018 at 3:57 pm

      No not at all, I have seen many senior citizens who are caught by this selfie bug. My mother in law clicks a lot of pictures and sends me. She is usually upset with me as I don’t click “enough” pictures of her granddaughter and send her.

        Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 4:35 pm

        Ohohohoho…gud one! Granny belongs to yo generation! And I suppose we to the stone age 😱😁😄Thanks dear for this snippet!

Ramya Abhinand · April 10, 2018 at 2:51 pm

Thank GOd I am not bitten by the selfie bug!!!! And hence never attempted it from the first floor

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 3:18 pm

    Appreciate your immunity towards this fast spreading contagious disease, Ramya! Thanks for visiting and sharing your snippet.

Iain Kelly · April 10, 2018 at 3:33 pm

Such a great family scene, despite all the bickering you can tell how much they all care for each other really. As for selfies, well let’s just say I could live without seeing them anymore! 🙂

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 3:50 pm

    Thats the real sweet bond they share! Thanks Ian.

Archana (@yenforblue) · April 10, 2018 at 4:17 pm

Excellent writing! The family seems very close despite their arguments.. Good going Anagha 🙂

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 4:36 pm

    Thanks Archana.

Dipika Singh · April 10, 2018 at 5:07 pm

Another fun to read post Anagha, selfies are hit with Kavya too and she can click barrage of those funny faced pictures. Family scenes and pushing all ‘you are late mumma’ is so common in every family. hahah.. Funny post loved it.

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 7:16 pm

    Watching those funny faces at leisure provides for oodles of love and warmth! Thanks Dipika

Mayuri Nidigallu · April 10, 2018 at 7:11 pm

Selfie from the ‘1st floor’ ! now that is funny! No wonder my selfies don’t turn out right, they are alway from the ground floor!:))))))

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 7:17 pm

    Trust Giant Little Kid for all such quirky phrases! I suppose new generation has a fresh perspective of looking at things. Thanks Mayuri.

sukrisblog · April 10, 2018 at 9:51 pm

Your katta meeta family is the best one. Do send Giant little kid for a 1st floor selfie here too! 🙂 haha As always you come up with something funny to write about

    Anagha Yatin · April 11, 2018 at 9:04 am

    Thanks Sudha.

Neha · April 10, 2018 at 10:01 pm

Loving the family banter of this series Anagha!

    Anagha Yatin · April 11, 2018 at 9:04 am

    Thank you Neha.

An@m! · April 10, 2018 at 10:40 pm

hahaha.. selfie from first floor.Nice verdict. Again our story. My husband takes all our selfies. Mine will come from ground floor. 😛

    Anagha Yatin · April 11, 2018 at 9:06 am

    Mine too Anami! Thanks dear.

Deepa · April 10, 2018 at 10:51 pm

Hah..I have to try selfie from the first floor. I am a big selfie fan myself and its fun to see teenagers taking their selfies and knowing much more than their parents.

    Anagha Yatin · April 11, 2018 at 9:07 am

    True that. The new generation is way ahead of us with respect to putting the technology to use. Thanks Deepa.

Mahak @babyandbeyondin · April 10, 2018 at 11:18 pm

I am the worst at taking selfies…I think I need to master the first floor selfie…haha

    Anagha Yatin · April 11, 2018 at 9:08 am

    I dont mind taking few lessons in clicking selfie either, Manisha. Thanks dear.

Medha Nagur · April 13, 2018 at 1:07 pm

One great nutty family. Yeah I do agree with the giant kid… selfies are best clicked from the first floor!!!

mahekg · April 26, 2018 at 12:22 pm
