Get a life.....

Agasthyan is the youngest in the family.He has a brother who is an engineer and a sister who is a doctor. Agasthyan being the notoriously not so good in studies little rascal of the family, he was every one's goal post for lecturing.Not a day would pass when some one or the other would lecture him about his life.Most common lines that he's used to hear is to get a life.

Since school's being closed for vacation, he would spend his whole day laying on the couch wat
ching movies from one end to the other.He was kind of crazy about movies.He would get up in the morning , do some usual stuff and then straight away head to the video parlor.

As usual Agasthyan was lying on the coach watching movies when his brother interrupted him.'What are you doing Agasthyan? Do you think lying on the coach whole day and watching movies would do you any good in your examination.Don't you want to get into an engineering college and be an engineer like me" said his brother adjusting the spectacles on his face.Agasthyan simple looked at his brother and got up from coach."What i meant is why do you waste time watching such foolish movies, do some thing which is of any good to you.Don't waste your time.For God sake, come on get a life boy."saying this his brother gets into his car and drives away.

Next it was his sister who was though getting late for the hospital but still found some time to preach the poor soul."Agasthayan...not again.Come on boy its time that you take your life more seriously and figure out what to do "...said she with a strain on her forehead."You cant be sitting whole day long and watch movies, you should get serious about studies.Come on, get a life boy." said she and rushed to the door.

His sister had just moved out of door when the phone bell rang and he picked up the phone.It was his dad.He was mostly out of the country on business tours.Though he wasn't at home but whenever he called he would make sure to give one or two lessons to Agasthayan."So what are you doing chap" asked his dad."Watching movie dad" replied he."Come on boy don't you have any thing else to do instead of watching movies" asked his dad."Come on boy go out hang out with your friends and don't spend the whole day watching movies, hope you understand what i'm trying to say.Come on, get a life boy" said he laughingly and put the phone down.Then suddenly some thing clicked Agasthyan and a mischievous smile came across his face. 

He waited for his brother and sister to arrive in the evening on the couch itself.When they arrived they found him on the same couch itself."what the hell, do i need to tell you again whatever i told you in the morning" asked his brother  furiously."No brother i completely understood what you said.I even got what you asked me to.Its in the shelf to your left.Confused his brother and sister turned to the left shelf and found a thing covered in the newspaper.He opened it up.It was a LIFEBOUY.Agasthayan smiled and jumped out of couch and left the room and his sister smiled at his brother and said "He is still the notorious rascal of the family
