    @Ouroboros
    What is the short form for this name so that I can address you without twisting my tongue. Four 'o's and a solitary 'u' is too much for me to handle. Thak you in anticipation.
    Coming to the subject, a meanager is a good one.I'll have to squeeze him between a teenager and seenager.
    That has been my life so far but I could never describe myself in such crispy fashion so far. I may use it in one of my future ramblings and I hope I don't get into Copyright issues.
    I now feel tempted to ask myself this question. Should I be a Seenager or a meanager? A tough choice!

    Seenagers do have a lot of experience but never know when and how to use it. They invariably use it at a wrong occasion and become the butt of a joke. Grandchildren feel amused when they look at their grandparents as if they are seeing a 'Chettiar ' doll in a Golu.
    You are right. My daughter sets the time in the wall clock by seeing when I take my medicine. Old age is fun!

    That's clever indeed. But my mind usually presents to me totally defunct and unusable stuff.
    Let me now ramble a bit which is as usual unrelated to the subject we are talking about.
    The other day, I had a phone call from a credit card vendor. He started telling me about all the salient features of the card. He even assured me that I was not obliged to clear the dues even if the Bank reminded me. After an hour long discussion, I asked him the upper age limit for the card user and he said 65. When I told him that I was well past my mid seventies, in a highly aggrieved tone, he said that I could have conveyed this info in the beginning itself. 'I would have', I told him, 'if you had given me a chance to speak'

    This is not my own stuff. Please don't give me any credit for it. I don't even know who wrote it. Anonymous, I presume.

    defunct and unusable is what a humble person would think. However, this world is now like "ebay" -- people bidding up the price of what one might have considered junk in the pre-e-bay times. No matter what you have, there is someone out there who could use it, perhaps much better than you.

    That "hour long discussion" was hilarious. That poor marketeer should have guessed that he is dealing with someone who loves to talk or be talked to .... a dead-give-away characteristic of a Seenager. [ here we are, back on topic!] No matter which country, or what culture, a well-settled Seenager is always ready to take a phone call from a telemarketer, and cause them anguish. Well done!

    There is another pointer that I am getting there... my children prevent me from watching PG-13 movies!
    They are scandalized that mom would be exposed to a lot compromising scenes in the movie :rolleyes:

    Talking of ebay and the like, let me digress some more. In my young days, my mum would hand over a list of grocery required for the month. I would go to the tiny shop nearby and hand over the list to him. All items would be packed in newspapers. Things like oil would be filled in the bottles I carried. In other words, we bought only those items which were required for a month's existence.
    Today the scenario has changed drastically. My daughter goes to the super market and buys everything that is attractively packed. She would go through the description on some items and add them to the cart. About 20% of the items bought would lie at home unopened till the expiry date! My son in law doesn't believe in going to super markets. He uses the internet to order for everything from doughnut to a doberman!

    This reminds me of Lord Sive being guided by his son Subramanya!

    I had trained my children in my method. We had a shopping list paper under a fridge-magnet on the refrigerator. Whatever people use from pantry or fridge, when they see it getting too low in stock, they will write that on that paper. There is a ballpoint pen on a string tied to that magnet also. Once a week, during the grocery shopping time, that list goes with whoever is given that shopping job.

    Your SIL seems to have the right idea. It is best not to go out there and try to be hunter gatherer in a super market. In my personal opinion, vegetables I had not personally squeezed and approved should not come home for/with me. This borders on the fetish.

    You can drop the 'u' and cleave as 'Oro'.

    I shall respond to 'robo' and 'boro' also but Oro means 'of a mountain'. Suits me! Unlike rivers that bend and sky that disperses, I hold put while others may have to pass around me. A lazy and wilful mountain when I am not a coiled serpent!
