Oreo Shake

There is an Indo Pak cricket match on Christmas day? God has an odd sense of humor. It reminds me of the days when as a student, I took breaks from school work on festival holidays and looked forward to watching new movies on tv amid the celebrations. But at times, my grand plans were foiled by live cricket telecasts that ALL members of the opposite sex wanted to watch. I can remember only too well the arguments between the cinema loving ladies and the cricket loving guys. Mohanlal or Sachin? A sixer that stuns an entire nation or comedy that has you rolling around laughing uncontrollably? The men usually used their trump card and threatened to leave to my aunt’s house in the neighbourhood to watch the upper cuts and paddle sweeps in peace. The peace loving women angrily gave in but everyone continued looking daggers at each other and it took considerable time (and perhaps a power cut or two) for the climate to turn festive once again.

You are most probably going to face such situations this holiday season. You can, of course, bind and gag those men till the match is over. But if that doesn’t work, you should at least serve some ice cream, Oreo and cherry combination or an Oreo shake to cool down all the hot heads and thereby keep hostilities to a minimum.
