    Hello All
    I have a request and favor to ask.

    Can anyone give me a small humourous story. I am looking for something to enact at our Tamil Sangam Pongal festival. W only have 40 or so families and my dh and I wanted to do a small play involving cast of 3-5 members.
    If anyone has any that they can share please post here. I can make it into script form.

    Thanks in advance.

    Dear Vidya
    I did ask and he said I could use any..But I am so terrible a this I dont know where to start..unless somethin is handed to me or atleast pointed out I am truly at a loss..

    However we are not looking for anything fancy..just for 12-15 mins..

    If my dh and I dont do nobody does anything..everyone else is happy to come and eat and go.

    dear anand chitra , sorry for late replying but hope it wil be use ful 4 u in future.. and here's the story goes like this:
    one in a hospital there's a doctor who is treating to his patients regularly..
    there wil be many patients visiting for treatment..
    once a patient comes to him suffering with severe stomach pain
    and complaints to the doctor abt his problm..
    actually the patient wil be always eating in the day
    appxmatly 20hrs a day
    hence ofcourse he's suffering with that stomach pain..
    Doctor examines him and suggests the diet like this,??
    daily take morning 2idlis, afternoon 1egg with some rice and boiled curry, and 2chapatis as dinner..
    but the patient replies him like this" doctor ji how should i follow ur diet,, like b4 my regular eatings or after:queen" ( and here the funny scene should be narated in this last diauloug of the patient).. and thats the end of the story..
    Moral: eat less work more..
