The Case of the Smelly Towel

Scene: Me getting out of the shower. Bren brings me a towel from the other room. I take a sniff, make a face and immediately yelp at Bren.

A: Baba! Gross!

B: What?

A: Is this the same towel that you wrapped around your sweaty, stinky, post-Krav Maga body the other day, when you sat in front of the computer for an hour, and then still used it again and put it back in the rotation?!

B: What?

A: Smell it! It's disgusting baba!

B: (sniffing towel and walking out the bathroom. Mumbles to himself) Smells like wet dog...

A: (looks at herself in the mirror, making a face that says "exactly")

B: (enters bathroom again with a massive white towel) Here. This is the best one. Just for you.



A: Did you get this towel out of the hamper?

B: What? Yeah...

A: What the... is this the same towel that we used on our camping trip last weekend? The one I used after swimming in the river?

B: What? When did I become the towel historian?

Why is "towel historian" SO FUNNY?

Aarti - I'm sorry, I know this is not the right place to do this, but it's the only way this old fart could figure out how to holler at you. I just read your blog from beginning to end and found it interesting, fun, uplifting and sometimes sad. I went to the Playing for Change website and watched Chanda Mama. I love it, but could you please post a translation somewhere? I know Chanda Mama is moon uncle, but that's all I could find on Google.

Sorry Mum does not speak Tamil as yet. The only guy I thought would help me with the translation has not responded as yet. Will see.

Oh I just thought of someone else I can ask for help.

Will let you know when I get a response from my Tamil speaking friends.
