Funny Friday Fiction 55 with Bharathi

Today we have a spirited and a marvelous blogger with us, Bharathi from A Naked Opinion, he blogs with a different, with a clear ideology, definite vision and a very value words. Put your hands together for the philosopher and the true Kohinoor of Blogsville, Bharathi.
Its midnight now. I cant get sleep. Tomorrow is the deadline. Can I make it? I don’t know. If I don’t, I cant even think about it. I can sense a very strange feeling in my stomach.
Finally its nine in the morning, slowly I presented my failed mark sheet to my dad for signature.
Note: We all think kids are always happy. In my sense they too have their glad and sad moments. That’s the moral (?) of the story.

  1. Thanks a lot for your wonderful introduction buddy. Hope our pals would enjoy the fiction.

  2. Lols... Hey bharathi, you know I remember being dead scared to show my report card to my dad. I wasn't that bright (then). Once I tried to practice his signature but my sister saw me doing that and she told my mom. I never forgave her that. NEVER. :P:)

  3. @Bharathi
    I always admired your blog bro. You lived life on your own terms. Ossum.

  4. @ bharathi
    I have never shown my marksheets to my dad if it was anywhere below distinction. I can't take his cold stares :(

  5. Report Card time was the only time when I felt like growing up fast! lol

    The Khaandan Ka Chirag post was gr8 too... Can't find it now.

  6. I guess thats every childhood was indeed a mission to get those hands to sign the report card. Wish there were rubber stamps with signatures of parents available.....would have made those nightmares a bit lighter...;)

  7. @Saurabh
    I am rewriting it again... it failed to give humor effect...will republish it soon...:D

  8. @ Raji: Ha ha. it happens. I had a spy like that as well.

    @ Sid: thanks buddy. hope that do any good to me.

    @ Neha: Distinction!!. oh you are a different bread then :-)

    @ Saurabh: True.

    @ Pankaja: :D

  9. ya, but it's true that - diamonds are made in pressures...but one has to draw the line.

    Nice one, Bharathi :)

  10. Good one. I ALWAYS showed my failed marksheet to my dad that once when i had accidentally passed my exams, my dad gifted me a watch which i still wear even after 6 yrs :)

  11. @ Megha and
    @ Aditya:
    thanks buddies. I am glad you liked it.

  12. Guess thats one part that everyone has in common, show-the-report-cards day! I too always used to put it off until the last moment possible and checking for changes in moods in the house (something like a moodoscope, savvy?) :D ;)

  13. I didn't find the fiction funny although the surprise element is intact along with other criteria for a 55-word story.And it makes for a good read :)
    Hmm never had a problem with studies or grades or report cards in my I guess I can't really relate to the narrator's feelings.But I think it must suck.

  14. nice one!!

    totally agree with the mora of the story!

  15. nice one :)

    totally agree with the moral of the story!

  16. @ Murali: I normally wait until it is late for my mother to leave for her job. The impact will be less because of time constraint u know ;-)

    @ Samadrita: Hmmm. Then u r lucky.

    @ Tangerine: thanks for understanding the moral of the story. I am happy seeing ur comment.
