Granny’s Theories – Episode 1

Posted in Granny's Theories, Silly Tales with tags , , , , on December 28, 2010 by mmeeviloverlord

My grandmom has a lot of theories. Some are okay, others are downright hilarious. Since she’s going to be staying with us for the next few months, I expect to be an audience for at least 50-60 such theories. The ones that interest me more or make me laugh till my sides hurt are going to be featured on my blog, along with rating out of five. So, clap your hands for the very first episode of Granny’s Theories!

No offence, grandmom.

Theory of the Day: Single children need competition in the form of siblings otherwise they turn out to be brats.

Comments a.k.a. Squashing The Theory: This sentence was, fortunately, not directed towards me. It was in the context of a first cousin once removed who is supposed to be a it of a brat. A little background story here – the kid is about 8 or 9 years old and fights with one cousin (out of four). The fights he has are the reason for him being declared a brat. He recently got a brand new baby sister and my grandmom thinks that the competition he’s going to get from her is going to ease him out of his bratty nature. And then she generalized the whole thing by including every single kid living on the face of this planet.

Now, what could be wrong with this theory, I wonder…

a) I’m a single kid. I have three close cousins who are single kids. We were never brats and we aren’t still. Who knows about the future though, so no comments on that :D

b) I used to fight with those aforementioned single cousins. The result – we’re really close today. Even if we don’t talk to each other for ages, when we meet, it’s like we never left.

c) Competition in terms of what? Considering the age difference, the baby sister’s going to look up to him. Even if she doesn’t, where is the competition??

d) Generalizations. Aren’t. Good.

I know that kid much better than my grandmom, and he’s not a brat. If she considers him a brat, she’s never met one (which makes me wanna be bratty :D). Just because you’re a single kid doesn’t mean you’ll turn out bad. Sure, if you enjoy being a single kid, people might consider you crazy, but if not, they’ll consider you crazy anyhow (for a different reason, or perhaps the same).

Theory Rating: ** (Because my grandmom didn’t realize that her two eldest non-bratty grandchildren are both single kids.)

New Title! Whoop-de-doo!!

Posted in Silly Tales with tags , , on December 27, 2010 by mmeeviloverlord

I thought of a new title for my blog. It just came to me yesterday while my dad was teasing me about training to be a bloodsucker.

Yeah, I get my sense of humour from him.

Anyhow. Now, Obscurum Per Obscuris doesn't really fit in for me, though the sub-title is what I wanted the title of one of my books-to-be-if-I-ever-think-of-writing-and-find-people-to-read-them. So, 'A Theory of Uncommon-sense' by yours truly might hit the bookstands in a few decades/centuries (if I ever get the Philosopher's Stone). Please keep an eye out (and some cash ready) for that book, or keep passing this message on from generation to generation. Who knows, if I get the Stone, I think it would be your great-great-great-great-extremely-great grandchildren who'll be reading that book. So, please make me rich whenever it does happen, ok?

So… New blog title! I like it. I don't care if you don't :P
