do you know….. ??? I was humming this song in my head thinking of a good title for this post.
Weekend was plain and simple – as always, but then came Sunday morning. I was awakened by my mobile’s alert for a new text message. At 10 in the morning, I was still very sleepy but when I was half reading the message from my younger brother – our youngest, living in Sydney – that his wife delivered a baby boy on Saturday, I was just like Whaaaattttt!!! It was a surprise – for I did not know that my sister in law was even pregnant.
Well, all of us in the family did not have a clue. And so the coming of the baby boy was just a big big big pleasant and wonderful surprise! That ended my quiet and peaceful weekend.
I immediately called my sister and told her about it and she said – Whaaaattttt? What kind of drugs are you on? ? I told her to read the text in her mobile – and she said “oHHHHH My Gawwwd!”
And so that was like the rest of the family!
I rang my brother and he was very ecstatic and though I could not hide my joy and surprise, I asked him why on earth did they not told us in the first place – and that is like nine months of not telling us – is like not being considered part of the family at all. I for one would not or could not hide this (if i would get preggie, of course! not!), unless there is a real and big reason not to (another story!). Just for the sake of a surprise is just a big surprise – for all it is, is not coming out as a surprise !!! Well, not in this category. What happened with the word FAMILY ??? So I was with mixed emotions.
But that warm happy welcoming feeling of having another member of the family – a baby boy – won over and I had this chance of celebrating this on my own by listening to a CD I bought last friday – what a coincidence since it was all about boys… like my subconscious was preparing me for this finale…like I kept on seeing little cute baby boys on Saturday as well, not knowing that somewhere out there, a boy in the family has just arrived.
It is “Les Choristes”. I have the DVD and saw it once. Now just to refresh my memory- I saw it again last night, after listening to the CD. Well aside from the fact, that I love anything Frenchy, I was really touched to the core by the angelic voices of these boys plus I needed a big purging of emotions or “catarhsis”. I almost cried at first – well, shamelessly I actually cried a buckett afterwards …. for joy and all that there is to Life. For those just felt and not seen. Cheers!!!
