Dumb moment # 1001

Yesterday evening Adi was at her pattu (carnatic vocal music) class and we visited nearby mall to buy few items.  As it was already past 7 pm we decided to pack dinner from the mall. We bought Indian combo meal for us and Burger King happy meal for Adi. I packed them all in one plastic bag and asked M not to tell her about dinner. I thought it can be a surprise for her when she reaches the table for dinner.  You know how good I am with surprise plans don’t you?

So, I hid the plastic bag with food under my seat and picked up this girl from the class. As I opened the car door the little devil just smelled once and shouted

“Guyssss is it Burger king kids meal for my dinner today?” I smell fries and there I see the cover under the seat. She can easily beat Bloodhound on a smelling contest I say.

You should have seen my face. M was literally ROTFL. I have hardly seen him laughing out loud like this.  And he said please squeeze your brain twice as much as you normally do before planning surprise for us.

This little devil she made me feel like a dumb (as if I am not one) all night yesterday 😦  I have asked myself a million times “how did I miss that?” I am a stupid. I am an idiot…

As of today I am officially giving up planning surprises for these two creatures on my world. 😦
