I was torn with laughter! I didn’t know that something we used to do as kids could still be so funny as adults!
Anga made Zainab and Laeeka read a page each of the menu…and she made them hold their tongues and do it!! That was the stupidest,dumbest thing ever but it was so frikking hilarious my stomach hurt from laughing so hard!!!
I mean really, picture it. Hold your tongue and say “savoury rice”, “macaroni”,” pinna colada”, “steak sandwich”,”fried fish” ,”R66″. I was bust!! Even Riza,Aara and Arshad were rolling!! But each time Zoheb over did it (unintentionally) with his laugh, Anga held him back ” don’t move too much you will hurt something” bust again! And then as she was about to tell them their task was done, a customer entered and she made them go and take that persons order while holding their tongues!!!
This was beyond awesome!!
And the way in which she shot them killer looks was just classic! Maariah said as payback for breaking her mixer and liquidizer we would have to exclude her from this nonsense. Spoilt sport hmph!
Even the customers were enjoying our little fiasco and the entire place echoed with everyones laughter!
Anga now called Arshad but Arshad instead asked to speak to her alone. Now Arshad had that face..that innocent looking face and I knew he was upto something for sure. After a few minutes both of them walked towards our table.
Anga: boys…tell me what’s going on please?
Me: what do you mean doll?
Anga smiled and said…” I believe Zo here doesn’t need an ass transplant after all”
Me: ooh don’t believe anything Arshoo tells you, Zoheb could show you right now as proof ℓ☺ℓ
Zoheb: in your dreams bro!
Anga: nehmooo you know if you weren’t so cute I would have sat on you as punishment!
Me: (giving a very babyish smile) sorry Anga..we lied..
Anga: your friends are so lovely and what you did wasn’t very nice at all
Zoheb: well they aren’t exactly innocent either ( patting Aara on the head..she had pulled up a chair next to Zoheb)
By now Laeeka,Riza,Maariah and Zainab had also joined us at our table.
Me: that’s easy…I’m soooo sorrryyyy guys( actually no I’m not :-p )
Zainab: naaa not so easy..you made me hold my tongue and sound like an idiot…(Twisting my ears)
Maariah: I have an idea…I’ll be right back
Me: I was actually going to make Riza sing ” if you wanna be happy for the rest of your life never make a pretty woman your wife” ℓ☺ℓ !
Laeeka threw a spoon at me!
Me: what? We know Riza loves you and I never said you were pretty! (Busting)
Maariah: here we go handsome…your punishment:)
Me: I can’t eat this! ( Staring at the maas and milo cake infront of me)
Maariah: why not (raising her eyebrow)
Okay so only Zoheb and I knew what was in the cake right…sooo…I looked at Zoheb and he gave me knowing smirk.
Me: (thinking)…because…this is not punishment this is reward..this cake is devine I dug a piece out earlier. Look I’m just being honest guys and I could say I’m feeling bad but that would be a lie so I’ll just say..I want to share with you all..simple as that
Zoheb: yeah…we probably did go a little overboard…sorry..
Maariah: okay good then, let’s cut this thing. Zoheb and Nemo’s first chocolate cake how sweet
And Maariah gave everyone a slice and I had asked them if we could all eat it at the same time to “savour” the moment..( Lmao…savour the moment my foot bwahahahhahahaha eat maas cake traitors ℓ☺ℓ ℓ☺ℓ ℓ☺ℓ )
Zoheb: I’ll feed you the first bite
Aara: I have hands you know..
Zoheb: please? (Dimpled smile again)
Aara: *sigh* okay fine
He was trying to save Aara from eating it…and for once I wasn’t jealous because I wouldn’t want her to eat it either!
And so everyone took a big bite all at once..except Zoheb and I who just brought the forks to our mouths…and Zoheb who brought the fork to Aara’s mouth and then “accidently” dropped it on her lap!
We had our chairs pushed back a little…ready to run! And all it took was one bite..one bite and the flippin all resistance crumbles ℓ☺ℓ ! And their faces said it all!!!
Riza: (looking as though he was about to throw up) what did you put in this!!!
Maariah: (spitting the cake into a serviette and smelling the rest of it on her plate) it smells like cottage cheese…maas…milo
Arshad: (whose nose was blocked and already half way done with the cake *bust*) doesn’t taste so bad man
Zainab: (pulling the plate away from Arshad) can you even taste anything?
Laeeka: this is disgusting man! Seriously though, what did you put in it?
Zoheb: we just followed the recipe…Maariah has some horrible recipes it seems..
Maariah: your granny has horrible recipes maybe :-p … or you both probably can’t read properly
Aara: errr thanks I guess..ℓ☺ℓ..for not letting me eat it
Zoheb: you’re welcome..
Me: so Anga..did you like our dreamy maasy chocolate milo sensation?
Anga looked at me and then at everybody else…and then…
She passed out right onto the plate!!!
Me: (quickly jumping up along with everyone else) Anga!! Wake up Anga…we won’t be able to lift you up please wake up
Zoheb: (shaking Anga) dude is she dead????
Me: no man! I hope not! Shit shit shit!!
Laeeka: oh gosh she must have been allergic to one of the ingredients or something..quick Nemo maybe do cpr!
Me: (giving Laeeka a HELL NO look) NO! You do it
Zainab: make it fast its yours and your new besties fault…
Maariah: you could go to jail Nemo and my customers will never come back! (Holding her head)
Shit! This had gotten out of control! Okay breath breathe..I’m saving a life here…a humongous life but a life nonetheless…cmon Nemo you’re the man you can do it ( I kept telling myself that)
And Zoheb helped me lift her head off the plate. We probably needed Hulk to help us here but nevermind.
Me: do it Zoheb
Zoheb: no you do it! (backing off and Angas head fell back into the plate)
Me: what are you doing!!!( And we lifted her head again)
Coming closer to Anga’s mouth….ayyayyyyyayyyy….opening her lips and coming closer….I can do this I can do this…my lips were almost on hers eish yuck yuck yuck I’ll probably need a bottle of jik after this…
Waaaaahhhhhhhhahhhhhhhhhhhhahhhhhhh!!!!!! (What the…that sounded like Big Foot!!!)
I fell backwards straight onto Riza who was standing behind me!! Zoheb also let go of Anga’s head and went crashing into the table next to ours!
Me: bloody hell!! I got the shock of my life Anga!!
And then she laughed…and I didn’t have to think twice about who it was…
Aara: well done Anga! (Still busting)
Zainab: and I got it on camera!!
Me: Zai and Aara!!
Zainab: payback is always…
Aara: a you know what…*wink*
