Apology accepted….

Those who read this blog regularly would remember my frothing at the mouth post about how a resident of my building almost knocked my son down within the building premises, and how a scrap ensued, where I am not ashamed to say I comported myself like a true blue fish monger in my trembling rage, hands on the hips shouting included.

Well, the said person came across home the other day with two boxes of chocolates for the overjoyed child, who had no clue what he had done to deserve such joy. And  said person apologised for his behaviour. Explained certain circumstances which had made him lose his temper.

Well, I am not a person to hold a grudge. Therefore, Gaurav Chopra, apology accepted. It is a sign of manners and good upbringing to have the courage to accept a mistake and try to make amends. Therefore, I have hit delete on that incident.

And yes, dont even begin asking me about the ferocious daily struggle to keep the child from ODing on the choccies, given the immediate dental history of two root canals and infinite fillings on milk teeth just undergone.
