Hello people of the world. There isn’t much to say about today. It was a pretty uneventful day, I did talk to Mr chatroom and messed up big time. He told it was fine and he spent the rest of the time trying to cheer me up. I won’t tell you what I did wrong because you guys will think I am a complete douche. This post won’t be about my bungling attempts at online friendship/dating it is actually going to talk about something more familial.
I was thinking about my grandparents. I don’t know if I have mentioned this before but I am currently living with them in Kerala which is a state in India. I usually live in Delhi and was born there but my whole family is from Kerala. There is a lot of history behind that but I won’t go into it. Anyway as I was saying I’ve been living with them for about two weeks and you know what I found. I have found that they don’t know who or what I am.
My grandmother is the most extreme case. I have the distinct idea that she doesn’t even know my name. She calls me “small kid”. Keep in mind that is a literal translation she does know that I am her grandson. Part of it has to do with her age. These days she seems to forget a lot. My grandfather has a different kind of ignorance, he doesn’t seem to know who I am as a person. Compared to my grandma he has more of an idea about who I am but he can’t seem to compute what I think. This might again be a side effect of age or different generation but I think there is more to it.
I have stopped trying to get through to them because I don’t see the point anymore. They don’t want to know who I am because it is too much effort. At this age it must be difficult to adjust to new things and even though my brother has been living there, he also has a different way of thinking and it took them four years to get to an understanding.
Anyway I can’t think of anyway to really make them understand me but I think as long as I am doing what they say, they will be alright not knowing who I am. This doesn’t make me sad really. I haven’t known them long enough to worry about them caring.
That’s about it for today. I hope you are having a great day/night. Also did I mention that the chat room guy is hot because he is.
