On way back home, comfortably sitting on my seat with my earphones plugged in, I was enjoying a romantic song by Kishore Kumar, when suddenly I overheard this conversation between two kids.
Kid 1: You know one kid was sleeping in the class today?
Kid 2: Really? Didn’t ma’am scold him?
Kid 1: No, she didn’t!
Kid 2: Why?
By this time I was curious to see their expressions as well and this is what transpired between them.
Kid 1: (Shrugging his little shoulders) Oh his mother had given him a cough syrup that put him to sleep. So he was sleeping in the class.
Kid 2: Who said that?
Kid 1: His friend who was sitting next to him said that. But teacher didn’t believe him because he was trying to hide his laughter. So the teacher realised that it was a prank being played by those two kids who thought they could outsmart their teacher. It was fun bhai! You should have been there.
Kid 2: Just smiled fondly at his younger companion and nodded his head.
