(As related to me by Mrs. Porcupyn)
Baab comes home from school; is obviously puzzled.
Baab (head moving like a Spring Doll): Amma, how do I do it?
(Equally puzzled, with a touch of exasperation showing through) Mom: Do what now?
Baab (still trying to shake his head): Shake my head!
Mom gives some tips on an acquired skill…
Two days later …
Baab (animated): Look Amma, I can do it now.
Proceeds with a vigorous, inimitably (inimitable no more!) desi, head nod – northwest to southeast followed by southwest to northeast (axis points from head to toes). 😉
