We are the same

This month brings to my mind the games we used to play as kids during summer holidays. I was telling P about it yesterday. My favourtie game was 'Choppu' and I had quite a big collection of toy vessels, stoves, cylinders, grinders, mixies etc. I used to pester my parents to buy the choppu utensils for me. The game by itself was not much, but we could spend hours playing it. We used to cook, dress our dolls, go to work come back and cook again.

The best part was we used to fight about who was to cook. The person who had to go office had nothing much to do but carry her lunch box, go to a corner stand and eat it and get back home after pretending to work. But the person who cooked had the best part.

Of course now cooking is not something I fight over. It is the other way around :p It was so much more fun to cook with toys than real vessels.

P's games sound so much different than mine. All his games involved running around grounds, jumping over things etc.. He never as a rule, played indoor games. I asked him if he ever played Choppu. After lot of peruasion he admitted that he did, but hated it. Ha, atleast somethings don change!
