ROCK PAPER SCISSORS LIZARDS SPOCK & A CREAMY MINESTRONE SOUP

School nights are sometimes more relaxing. With my son fast asleep by 8.30,  Mr. Tavelling every corner of  Gujarat not home, I get privileged rights of the TV set to myself.

Yesterday night, I slipped myself into my pyjama pants.  (the most comfortable as well as the one of worst looking outfits I have but that doesn’t matter! )  As The Big Bang Theory is not going to judge my ill fitted pyjama which must be atleast a decade old.

In fact The Big Bang Theory is very close to my heart. Its impossible to argue against the genius comedy that it is.

When I was pregnant I was put on bed rest. During those months, I had the whole day to kill. Late evening The Big Bang Theory would run on TV. My son cossy in my tummy would vigorously start kicking as I would watch and laugh along. I would be vibrating from inside with the constant kicking and from the outside with laughter.

Even now, everyday after my son sleeps,  I will refresh myself with two episodes of The Big Bang Theory,  lighten my mood and then sit to work.

Last night,  I had a quick soup for dinner. Along with soup,  I enjoyed this episode. Its a laugh riot of intelligent comedy

Ha ha ha nerds !!! And also what super acting in this scene…

I am a huge fan of Jim Parsons’s acting. I belive he is considered one of the finest actors today and he is considered one of the few actors who acts with all his body and each muscle on his face.

In a few years The Big Bang Theory will be considered a timeless classic and Jim Parsons a legend. Its not a verdict it is a hope.😊 I also hope I would earn a status to give a verdict.
