You know you are Desi when…

I don’t want to make other races feel left out or anything and I am sure a lot of you could relate to the following traits, but there are just some things that really let you know you are desi.

“We are out of groceries” looks like this.  Desi people have this insane fear in the back of their cranium somewhere that when the apocalypse comes we won’t have enough groceries. So we should always be prepared with a surplus, no amount of groceries are ever enough.

Your freezer is full of containers that are highly misleading as to their contents.  For example you will not find yogurt, ice cream or cream cheese (who keeps cream cheese in the freezer?) in any of these containers. Surprise! If you are desi you will know that they all contain some type of curry. You can never have too much curry, never know when the zombies might come.

…every cupboard contains a bag …that contains countless bags. Every. Cupboard.

When the zombies come we will have plenty of bags to tie them up in. Of course up here in Canada we won’t have a zombie apocalypse,  that kind of stuff only happens in America.  We will of course send the bags to our American neighbors. Polite Canadians.

This bin is overflowing every two days.  I fear the day when garbage pickup will be scheduled for every other week.

    • Happy you enjoyed it!
      When I was little I got these really bad colds with earaches. My dad would roast a garlic clove and put it in my ear. It actually gave a lot of relief. I did it with my kids when they were little. Garlic has a lot of antiseptic properties and the heat eases the pain.

  2. Thank you for this post. I had such a hearty laugh after a long time. Yes, I am a Desi, and I relate to this. You ended it beautifully: I’d love to meet the mom whose children these are, or is it the mom standing in the middle.
