This time I selected two pages (90 and 91) so that the teaser makes sense!
Things happen fast then. The marquee erupts into a muddle of shouting and wailing and screeching. Aunty Suki yells at dad to “DO SOMETHING!” Dad shouts at everyone to “KEEP CALM!” Granny Jas tells Aunty Bindi not to be a drama queen – which DOES NOT HELP. Mum tries to get Aunty Bindi to “breathe through the pain”, which seems to make Bindi really angry and she says some bad words in Hindi. Mum goes a bit red in the face and mumbles that she was only trying to help. Everyone is yelling at everyone else, guests are shouting “helpful” suggestions and just as it’s all getting a bit out of hand, Manny and Mindy come running in with a big bucket of water and tip its entire contents over Aunty Bindy. SPLASH.
There is a stunned silence as Aunty Bindi gets to her feet, soaked from head to toe, with the brown gooey mehndi dripping off her. Belle the dog trots over, takes one sniff and runs away yelping. I put my head in my hands and wonder for the millionth time why my family can’t just be normal.
