Moodleys Talk – Teletubbies, Time and Place and Life 

While Arya is sleeping on the plane, Sanj looking at her Teletubby mascot: “Which one is it? La-La? Tinky Winky?…

He sings the jingle from Teletubbies then half way through he reminisces, still holding the mascot in his hands: “When I was at school, I used to argue with my friend which one is the best Teletubby. He claimed the red one, I liked the yellow one. What was his name?”

O.K. I didn’t answer because I was still digesting his first words – the part “when I was at school” and thinking: “right, so like 7, 8 years old…

Sanj continued, oblivious of my calculations: “Some people at high school were dating girls, some were thinking which college to choose. I was debating about Teletubbies.

– High school?!!?!?!? – it is very likely the whole plane heard me.

It might seem irrelevant comment but it very much is super relevant: – love is a funny thing – it’s simply only:time and place in life. Nothing else. Time and place.

If Sanj’s and my paths ever crossed in high school I would probably never even know his name and Sanj would, very likely hate me or my face would, very likely be a type of a mean girl or an opposite of anyone who he would feel attracted to. It’s our childhood and teenage hood that drags all the sh** in the rest of our lives. 

Time and place.

Moodleys Talk

This could be put into the basket of “I don’t know what to respond, other than: “Do you even think what you’re saying”.

We are going to a cafe for afternoon tea which I booked a few days ago.

Sanj: Have you already paid for this?

Me: Nooo, it’s a cafe. You don’t buy tickets for it. You pay for the food you eat.

Sanj: Do you know how much it is?

Me: It’s £6 per person.

Sanj: Including Arya?

The problem here is that he doesn’t understand where he went wrong.
