Tell me your dreams and I shall...ehem!

Shahrukh Khan declared that he is going to retire after Don. My happiness knew no bounds and I smiled from ear to ear. Then, my room mate woke me up.

Now, listen to this. I can say, I have the extra sensory perception of translating dreams. My dreams had in fact, told me something that was coming.

Mom called me up and we started talking about my little nephew. It seems the pundit had told them when my nephew was born that his name should start with D. (can you relate to the dream now? Don=D? ).

I had suggested some names but they had declined. Now, after thinking for almost a year, it seems mom has decided to name him Donaldo. Holy Mary, mother of Christ!! I asked why? And mom replied, like the famous Ronaldo and Rivaldo, he will be Donaldo.

I don’t know how my always-sleeping-in-front-of-the-tv mom suddenly started following football. I protested and quarreled. But now, it seems I have no support. Big brother and sis-in-law are not saying anything. All this while, they have been rejecting the names I had suggested, by saying that it’s not unique, it is too short and hazaar other reasons. At home he is Abungo, a name which is as unique as ‘Munna’ in Hindi.

Donaldo!!! My poor nephew can’t even protest. All he can say now is Mama ma ma Pa pa pa and sometimes me me me me. I will be going home end of Jan and I am going to start the ‘nephew bachao andolan.’

Coming back to my dream, Shahrukh khan had acted as a football player in KANK. Now, can you see the connection? (shahrukh=Don=D=KANK=football=Ronaldo=Rivaldo=Donaldo?)

Ah! That was a unique way of connecting your dream with reality. Nice try...

By the way 'Don' is much better than 'Donaldo'...Save him please...

Donaldo is indeed funny,
please save him (brings more of Donald Duck than Ronaldo/Rivaldo !honest.)......... my nephew is named Rahul (i suspect his dad, my bro-in-law, to be carried away by Shah Rukh Khan's movie ~ how,more often than not,SRK is named Rahul in most of his movies)........ more over 'Vijays', Bachan's passe.

Donaldo ? *a stifled laugh*

Instead of wondering what made this "name" be the chosen-one, I was thinking about what the kid will think about his name when he grows up ?

a la Lakshya song :
main aisa kyon hun... main waisa kyun hun ..

;-D

Don to Donaldo? Dream to reality? Etta Kii?

Acording to Freud, your dream would definitely translate into- you dont want Shahrukh to retire! You love the man! You love his acting & are jealous that you cant act like him!! :DD

One theory is that dreams are manifestations of supressed desires...
