When I underwent Sex Change – Final Part
Peanut comes in casually into the lab directly from school with a tennis ball in her hand (for the uninitiated, Peanut is Solilos 4 year old smart daughter). She stares at the Switcheroo and its inmate and asks her mom who that creature is. Without even letting her mom answer, she continues by asking her why isn’t the generator switched on after the power cut.
Whatever to Solilo : Whaaaat ??? You had a generator???? And you made me wait for so long in this form??? They should have named YOU peanuts !
Solilo : Oh, I forgot ! But my daughter is smart, you see !
Whatever : Yeah, I certainly can see that !! Now get me back to what I was. Will ya ? (appearing helpless and angry at the same time)
Solilo feels really bad for Vimal now; asks Peanut to switch on the generator so that she can work on Switcheroo for the reversal effects. Being a nice child, Peanut listens to Solilo, switches the generator on and comes running into the lab to inform her mom. A sudden turn of unfortunate events – Peanut, while running, trips on one of the loose wires of the machine and the ball that she had in her hand slips into the air. Now, imagine the following sequence in slow motion — Solilo, Peanut and the poor ‘thing’ inside the machine, all saying No! No! No! at the same time and watching the ball approach Switcheroo. The ball hits a button on the machine, bounces and hits Solilos hand……
Switcheroo starts functioning again; but this time with a lot of weird noises. The machine undergoes turbulence and seems to be going completely haywire.
Solilo (now mad at Peanut) : How many times have I told you not to run inside the lab ? Look what have you done. You spilt my coffee !!!!
Peanut : Maa, Whats more important? The Coffee or the Ball?
“Meeeeeeeeeeeeee !!!!”, a cry from inside the machine.
Switcheroo calms down after a few minutes and stands still. The motors stops rotating and Solilo presses a lever to open the door. From a thick cloud of smoke, Solilo sees a huge figure coming out of the machine.
Solilo : ((Gulp)) Holy Mother of Crap !!!
Vimala at the top of her voice : What on earth have you done to me ? I am PREGNANT now ???????
Solilo : Well, you saw it too, that ball hit that button while you were inside that machine and….
Vimala (still not out of the shock) : and may I know what was that button for?
Solilo : I was always wondering what that button was for. Now we all know (with a grin)
Vimala : ((Sigh !!!! )) I mean, look at me. Why do you hate me so much ??? (Calming down) I like your nail polish. Do you have some for me ?
Solilo searches for the nail polish while Vimala looks at herself when suddenly it strikes her.
Vimala : Heyyy, how come I remember everything? The message inside your confounded machine said I wouldn’t remember what I was like and blah blah.
Solilo : Oh, that’s because you were in a transition mode in between. How convenient, huh?
Vimala : Solilo, my friend, my dear friend, I would give my entire fortune to you in writing, can you please please get me back to my normal self ???
Solilo : You see, since this is an abnormal case, I have to check the manuals.
Vimala (screaming now) : Abnormal?? You call me an abnormal case??? Btw, Solilo, nice jewellery. Where did you get that from ?
Solilo : You know what, you shouldn’t get excited, especially at this time. Not good for your……..But I can understand. Hormones !!
Vimala : (( Deep Sigh )) who on planet earth is the father of this kid? (Looking at her belly)
Solilo : You are asking me?? Seriously, I have no idea. But who do you want it to be?
Vimala : What do you mean? I have a choice in this also? Heyy, nice shoes. I had a similar pair once. (effects of being a total woman)
Solilo turns evil again and thinks to herself, “Ahaaa !!! Now, this is yet another turn for my survey !!”
Solilo with the same old gleam in her eyes; this time even sharper: Yes, while I search for the reversal in the manual, you could give 5 names of whom you would like your childs father to be.
Vimala : Wait a minute, I have seen that look of yours before. Why do you need another list?
Solilo cooking up a story : Well, that’s how its in the manual ! There should be some test result to get the reversal effect done in Switcheroo.
Vimala : Hmm. Awwwright !!
Solilo takes her notepad once again and begins to write.
Title : How I wish if one of this is my childs father! (5 Crushes of a pregnant woman)
After 5 mins.
Vimala : Hmmm…..Its tough ! I cant think of any. Suggest me some, please !
Solilo : Farhan Akhtar???
Vimala : Ewwww…he looks like a pale lizard. See ? (shows the snap)
Vimala : Ok I got it, here goes :
2. Aamir Khan
3. Kamal Haasan
4. Sachin Tendulkar
5. Sashi Tharoor
Beeeeeep ! Beeeeeeep ! Beeeeeeeeeeep ! Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep ! The machine refuses to work emanating a loud alarm.
Vimala from inside (looking puzzled) : Now whaaat ????
Solilo : Oops ! The trial version of Switcheroo has expired and I need new keys to make it function again. Till then, the doors will be locked and it cannot be opened from both ways.
Vimala sighing to herself : This just isn’t my day.
to Solilo : So, what are you waiting for?
Solilo (looking at the manual, this time honestly) : It says, you would have to invite 4 bloggers of the opposite sex for the Switcheroo test and you wouldn’t be released unless they finish doing it. The best part is that they neednt come here, the machine just needs the test results of atleast 2 of them !!
Vimala : Why do you keep referring the manual everytime? You didn’t invent this stupid mean machine yourself, did you?
Vimala : I thought so !!!
Ok, I need to send invites to people who are immediately accessible and who could come with a quick list, right? Fine, then send an invite to these people- Ashwathy, Oorja, Smita 2, and AV with this message of mine :
“Gals, you gotta help me out. I am in a terrible ‘shape’ now, literally ! You don’t even have to come here. Just list down 5 female crushes you would have had if you were a guy and publish it as soon as possible.”
Its definitely not the End.
