M and I are walking hand in hand , getting back home after school pickup.
Generally, the conversation goes like –
Mummy ,Look I found a stick.
Mummy, Wait I want to see the clouds moving….
Mummy, Can I jump in the water puddle ?
Mummy, Do you know – Jupiter is the biggest planet !
Mummy, I got punished today because I kept talking so much in class, even after the teacher warned me.
But, this time it was different. There was an awkward silence. M walked silently seemingly in deep thought.
I curiously asked.
M , What are you thinking about ?
M promptly replied ” NOTHING” as if disturbed from deep thought.
I instantly remembered a video a friend had played , when he visited our home.
It’s a video about how the mens and women’s brains work.
Watch it !
The “Nothing Box” seems embedded in the guys mind from birth , I guess 🙂
