'Yearning' for quiet life

“Shut your dirty, rotton mouth.”
No, no. I am not telling you buddies. Will I dare? These are the words my Math master used to scream at me when I yawned during his class, which I did repeatedly.
I remember I wanted to say the same words to a Mumbai dentist who sat close to me during treatment, without his mask (those days dentists rarely used one), and let go a wide yawnnnn. I felt a lion was about to pluck my head. (Hope dear dentist friends Nitu and Kavita skip this post)
“Ooof..hehe..I did not sleep properly yesterday,” he rubbed it in.
“Honeymoon?” I wanted to ask, but he had warned that I should keep my mouth wide open and not shut.
Why so much about yawning?
The pretty girl at the mall counter asked me, “You have change?”
“No.”
“Hmmmm,” she opened the cash counter yawning.
“You seem tired?” I said.
She flashed a “what’s your damn problem?” look, banged the counter box and moved to the next customer.
“Can’t you keep your mouth shut?” asked my colleague dragging me.
“You mean dirty, rotton mouth?” I ran with him.

  9. I am scared of dentists too. Somehow, when they come at you with your weapons, they seem very close to causing damage :). Nitu, no offence meant :)

  10. Did u know that Yawning doesn't mean that u r lazy or feeling sleepy.

    It simply means that there is a lack of oxygen in your body and you are just sucking in that :D

  23. The best thing about your posts are that they never allow even the hint of a yawn!!

  24. A yawn and a poor breath can be a deadly combination.

  25. You are the best when it comes to writing humour in variety - exaggerating sometimes and also writing very apt and to-the-point :)

    While reading - couldn't help but give a smile first and then laugh plenty as I reached the end of this post :)

    Cheers,
    Sai :)
