Imitation at its PEAK

This one is....Read on to know which category it falls into....
After college, my first job.... or to put it more precisely ma first job after MASTERS.....Here, in that very place I came across lots of people, actually all types & kinds....Some really sweet, some haughty, some boring, some wierd etc. etc., you know the set that takes to float a REAL company & so called ASSESTS....Anyways I came across a house keeping lady who had this wierd way of calling people AMMA.....Her tone, pitch , intonation & whatever nitty-gritties goes into callin AMMA was peculiar...She used to use the very word in every sentence. Actually, her sentence used to start & end with AMMA...Here was ME trying to HONE my imitating skills (For those newbies, I'm pretty good at it...LOL....).. I started to imitate her way of callin AMMA jus the way it was....I got really good at it....Can you guess where I tried it & what the implication was...READ ON....
I had just mastered the word to its utmost perfection....Usage wrong place....
At home, at times my MUM is addressed in different ways, MUM, MOM, MUMMY, MUMMA & AMMA ( Yup, that very word)....Can you guess what could have happened...Well..Well.....Well...
Here i was one morning, trying to call my mum & Heaven knows why i called out AMMA... AMMA....Twice, not once ...and here was my mum telling, MUNDE HOGUMA....(Yup, the very thing you tell beggars....) My mum tellin me....
THAT was the end of me ever trying to call in that particular tone, pitch etc....
I'm sure i wouldn't wanna call that...Right... to get that wonderful a reaction from ma MUM......

AMMA...its a first word and world of all living beaings..its a lovely and affectionate word..u should understand the depth of this word..every newborn baby will cry as AMMMAaaa...at that momont the baby is begger to his mother,but mothet will not say..mundhe hogamma or hogappaa..she will feed to baby very happely.every beggers starts their duty with this world,because AMMA means a donor....she donate her blood and breath and every thing to her child... beggers hope is AMMA will donate something to live..thats why they will call as AMMAAA!!!!in ur case u called ur mother as AMMA..thatwhy our mother told MUNDHE HOGAMMAA....!!!!so u start nowitself to call your AMMA... as..AMMAA...ur AMMA will give every thig...

At office all of us know ur level of talent - imitation & keeping names to every indiviual...we simply enjoy the way u imitate people as if all of them hav learnt the style frm u.
But at times this talent when exhibited continuously becomes a practice & i still remember that day when u made that imitation in front of the housekeeping lady itself accidentally!!!!!!
