Welsh town names

Upon noticing some Welsh town names as we cruised on A55 in a cab, I could not help conclude that all the broken keyboards with stuck keys and no backspacess are sent to Wales to christen their towns πŸ™‚ An example – “Yr Wyddgrug” – that is actually a town name!! Here is another – “Llanwnnen”. Yet another – “Plwmp”. Go figure!!

Another 10 digit number

There is a 10 digited number. It has 2 each of the following digits – 0,1,2,3 and 4. Funnily enough, the two 4s are separated by 4 digits in between them; the two 3s are separated by 3 digits in between them, the two 2s are separated by 2 digits in between them… by now you have guessed the rest – the same thing for 1s and 0s. Can you find some of those numbers? (There are multiple answers)

Lion King

So, how do you tell your Jewish friend not to worry? “Hanukkah Matata” πŸ™‚ I know it is terrible but that is the after effect of all those cold medicines making me doozy as the seven year old watched Lion King for the first time in her life!!

One more gem from 7 year old Nikita. Sharmila was walking on my legs to massage the calf muscles after a run as I lay on the floor. At some point, she had stepped right behind my knee – so I started yelling – “My ACL” (you have to be somewhat of a running geek to know the knee ligaments). Nikita, who was within earshot distance quietly asked Sharmila – “What is ACL? Is that his private parts?”. I was like “Go back to your Disney channel” and could not get off the floor laughing for a few minutes… πŸ™‚

Qualifications to be a President

One more of those memorable comments from 7-year old Nikita. After a tiring week, I came back home and was relaxing with the newspaper when she came and asked me what I was reading. I said “Politics”. She pressed me for details. So, I told her – “It is about who will be our next President”. Curious how much she has learnt already, I asked her if she knew if I could stand for Presidential elections (I was not born in USA). She correctly pointed out – “No”. Impressed, I asked if she could explain why. She offered “Because you are not good enough?” πŸ™‚
