This little piggy stayed home!

I went here and i found i was this...(sob...sob...)I thought that i was a dragon!


Your Sign : Pig
Your Element : Metal
Emma Thompson, Alfred Hitchcock, Julie Andrews are pigs too...(GRIN)

Suddenly things became crystal clear!Now i know why i am so pig-headed and i just had to write this letter.

Dear Ms Pig...

All this while I've been thinking i was a dragon. Never mind, I still have a lot of bones to pick with you. You've been a part and parcel of me from the days i was so little. My grandmother loved to tell me that i was the most demanding baby she ever saw. They had to constantly rock me to sleep else i would use those vocal cords amazingly! That was you,little piglet!

How can i forget the time when in kindergarten,the teacher told us to keep quiet, you made me chatter nonstop..so much so she actually had to put tape on my mouth...and i promptly removed the tape and started chatting to her again...and she hugged me out of frustration, i think and that shut me up!!

Then in school,every time there was a project you made me open my mouth and volunteer and then i agonised days and nights to put it together. You still do that!

You are responsible for all those fights i had with my mother because i didn't want to listen to her, even though she was right.

And when it used to be study time, i would read a comic hidden inside my study material...Bad piggy!!!You still do that, I'm supposed to be finishing my articles now for my magazine and here i am posting letters on my blog...

And the time when you made me delete my post thinking it was a draft...Absentminded piggy!
There have been many other occasions worth mentioning but let me not rake up the past. Of course there have been a few times when you have come in useful, especially when people behave meanly or there is something wrong going on...then i can give it to them left right and center, that's thanks to you too...Brave Piggy!!

So the next time when the gentle goat gives me a perfectly good piece of advice, would you stop grunting in between because then i do just the opposite! And will you stop picking up fights with the little ox (my 10yr-old)because then things will get nasty. He is after all nearing his teens and he will trample you down, if you are not careful! I don't want an ox on the rampage...

It is a good idea to have a little meeting and discuss the game plan of how to handle certain situations. Right now I think you are away because we have been pretty docile out here but let's do have this talk soon because the exams are underway and the ox is rearing his head!!!


An aggrieved soul

Its so nice and cute...a lil funny and a lil nostalgic..and at times you feel like saying aaaww....thats me too

And let the ox do his thing.....one day he'll be as cool as a mouse and you'll want the ox all over again....noise et all(I try convincing myself like this every moment...gives me some smiles)
And so now the dragon has finally been laid to rest lol!!!!

to comfort u, i must point out that Miss Piggy was the ultimate sexbomb in the Muppets...there, tht must hve made u happy..

Preethi said...

Hey I turned out to be a goat!!! No fair!! :P Considering that I am a Ram already (by star)... probably not so surprising!!!

Vasanthan said...

I am a pig too. don worry.
according to the Chinese myth all the animals went on a race. the one that came in last was the pig.
the first was a rat, it rode on the OX that was first and leaped out in the finishing line.
