The difference between the old and the not quite so old.

the old (ie. my parents): Arey! Its the wedding recpetion tonight, we had better eat something and go.(dont ask me why anyone would do that I guess you've got to be on the other side of 50 to understand.)

the not so old(ie me): Arey! Its the wedding reception tonight..I had better skip lunch.

What do you do when all the Tailors are on stirke: Suit yourself.

What do you do whan all the docotors are on stike? Suture self.
If I ever open a strip club I am going to call it "Thong and Dance"
What have I been upto these last few days you ask? You didn't!! Well I shall proceed to tell you anyway.
Well I have spent the last few days cleaning up the truckloads of mucus that seem to be generated by my body...
If you think that this is disgusting, Hey! I ahven't even come to the part of my narrative where we examine what I did when I could not find a handkerchief or a tissue anywhere around.

Before that I was stuck in Chennai, during the rains.No electricity..Was issued numerous death threats by different members of family for singing Annu Mallik's priceless gem "Dekho baarish ho rahi hai"
For the benifit of those who are not familiar with the song let me elaborate...Those who are familiarwould already have commmited suicide by now.
AM starts of in totally besura pathetic aawaaz (you know like Rafi sahab ka gaana Sonu Nigam ke aawaaz mein similarly we have here Is admi ka gaana..Gadhe ke aawaaz mein)
And so he starts of by braying.
"Dekho baarish ho rahi hai"
And just in case you didn't get that he translates and simplifies in the next line.
"It's raining. It's raining. It's raaaaaaaaaaiinnnning"
Undaunted by the tamater anda missiles, he carries on
"Mera dil ro raha hai"
"My heart is paining.It's paining.It's Paining .It's Paaaainnnnninnnnng"
Arey! Yahin to maar kha gaya Hindustan.Mistook in translation.Like in the subtitles of the D.D Sunday afternoon regional films.The Subtitles were fine untill the film happend to be in a language you could actually follow.What was even better was that they translated songs and put the subtitles for that as well. you could be watching the most depressing film ever made, but the subtitles would never fail to elicit a chuckle or two.
But we were encouraged actually by AM's pain in the err heart..we thought he would be know katofying his ticket soon.Alas it was not to be. He still survives and torments us.
