(Sorry for the silence, I was out of the country with limited internet for 3 weeks)
This morning Varun decided to make fried eggs. He hadn’t drunk his chai yet and was still sleepy so the process was taking a while. As I watched I noticed a problem with the process: the eggs and oil were in the frying pan but the burner wasn’t lit.
Me: Um…You’re supposed to heat up the pan first.
Varun: Why? It all gets hot anyway.
Me: (Although not actually sure “why”, wanting to be convincing) Because. It’s complicated, you know…chemistry and stuff.
Varun: (singing) Chem-is-try, is a mystery, Bio-lo-gy se lagta hai dur, Pol-it-ics, Eco-no-mics…!
At first I thought he was writing his own song. And then I watched this video. Love-ology. It’s an Indian music video from the early nineties, need I say more? The translation is basically that he hates/is bad at each subject except loveology. Be sure to watch it through the end, where he seduces a blond girl and a guy.
(After watching the video and eating our eggs)
Varun: So, how did you like your eggs?
Me: Actually, they were quite yum. I liked the consistency. What’s your secret?
Varun: HA! Not turning on the pan. Amelia, buddy, to venture into the unknown you must question everything.
