In a foreign country, I saw a mother calling out to her son –“Ahora! Ahora! Ahora!”.
I knew what “ahora” meant.
It’s a Spanish word, which means “now” in English.
That lady later became friends with my mother and someday when she had come over to our house, I mentioned this incident to her. Listening to me she replied-“ We were going to the super market to buy the monthly supplies and my son instead of getting into the car, started playing hide and seek with my neighbour’s son.”
So, I gave out a call to him again and this time, he began jumping on the stairs.
He came and told me –“ ma can I play for some more time?”
I-“No, you can’t. Get in the car, now.”
Him-“Nooo, I want to play some more!”
I -“Ahora! Ahora! Ahora!.”
As soon as I said this, he reluctantly got in the car.
So, read my blog AHORA!
