The battle

The battle lines were drawn. The opponents sat across from each other- grim faced and sombre eyed. Their brains were in an over drive. This was a battle of a different kind battle- a battle in which brains not brawn decided the winner.

The champion who had emerged victorious from an umpteen number of previous battles was certain that this time too winning would be a cakewalk.

But they say life is full of surprises and our champion was blissfully unaware that she was in for a mega surprise. Half an hour into the battle and the winner was for all to see. Today was the day of the underdog. The sweet victory that deluded the underdog was finally her’s.Today was a day that would go down in history.

This is a melodramatic description of a “battle” I won against my mother. I dont remember the last time I won against her -she’s that good. So I thought it made a lot of sense record this great event on my blog. I dont know when such an event will reuccur!!:P In case you are still wondering what the battle was, here’s a hint for you–
