A Few Extra Smiles

It was one of those days at the Dracula Castle with lesser darkness and more people. The clouds were still approaching from a distance. Dracula was not present, but the rest of the team as well as the zombie minions were around, searching for the new plans to make an attack on the werewolf stronghold to the north which was blocking the trade routes. After a lot of opinions thrown around, Vampire Bat had made a list and was preparing the final map for the grand attack.

Vampire Hamster: Enter Vampire Owl, from the land which has a name which I forgot a few months ago.

Vampire Owl: I was talking to the zombies in the graveyard and was surprised to hear something. Is it true that Uncle Dracula has turned full vegetarian after the recent root canal procedure?

Vampire Bat: I have heard some talks about the same too. He hasn’t been around the castle for some time and didn’t talk about drinking blood after the dental procedure.

Vampire Owl: I am not surprised about it at all. He always thought that the immortality extended to his fangs, and unfortunately, it didn’t. There was no such thing as immortal teeth. The elder vampires used to brush the teeth really well and so they have kept themselves away from dental problems. Uncle Dracula argued about it even after having the root canal done, and kept saying that the root canal never happened and everything is just an illusion brought upon us by the Witches of the North. What is it that you have heard?

Vampire Bat: I have heard that some products from McCain India were given to him and that brought a smile on his face. He proclaimed himself a proud vegetarian only after that.

Vampire Owl: Are you sure that it is not a rumour? The dirty werewolves create more and more rumours and our zombie minions spread them without second thoughts.

Vampire Bat: Not at all. It was from some of the reliable sources. They say that he even asked for more of the food.

Vampire Owl: I believe that he had the Vegetable Nuggets during that time. There is big chance for the same, as it reflected what his wife prepared for him in the last phase of immortality.

Vampire Bat: Yes, along with the McCain Aloo Tikki, as I have heard. He proclaimed it as a great vampire discovery and the true hope for the future of vampirism in all forms. Then he had French Fries like his life depended on it.

Vampire Hamster: Forgive me dear sir, but Sir Dracula turning vegetarian? This is surely news. But I don’t understand. It is not supposed to happen under normal circumstances. There has to be something else which has caused this.

Vampire Owl: You are not supposed to understand this thing. It is special and also more a thing of taste.

Vampire Hamster: But I would like to have the McCain Smiles to have the smiles on my face. Potatoes in the form of happy faces brings the happiness in me.

Vampire Bat: The decision on making it our official food remains with Uncle Dracula, but I am going to add this to the list.

Vampire Owl: Then there is the Chilli Garlic Potato Bites and those crispy Super Wedges. They look good. It is a fine list to bring the smiles.

Vampire Hamster: When I possess more hunger, I will have the McCain Veggie Burger. I can smile then too.

Vampire Owl: You haven’t seen the Cheese and Jalapeno Nuggets yet, and the Potato Cheese Shotz. That should bring you enough hunger.

Vampire Hamster: Now, that makes me hungry. I shall take leave now.

Vampire Bat: I see that you have left him on a great food trail.

Vampire Owl: The whole vampire team is turning vegetarian on the path set by Uncle Dracula. There are a few movements which have started in support. I have no doubt about the success of the same at least up-to an extent. Actually, there was one question which I really wanted to ask. When was the last time you smiled?

Vampire Bat: I don’t remember. It should have been a very long time.

Vampire Owl: Neither do I. Lets look for the lost smiles with McCain India.

Guptaji Knows the Best

Vampire Owl: You are asking why should we have food from there? Reason one is that it is free food which should be given respect and the second reason is that the girl is so cute; she looks like Selena Gomez.

Vampire Bat: What? I shall do this alone, thank you.

Vampire Owl: You don’t want my highly intellectual ideas on food?

Vampire Bat: No, because I know that it begins and end with eating.

Vampire Owl: See, this is why I have to bite random people.

Vampire Bat: I shall just write and will let you read it, okay?

Vampire Owl: I shall wait, but you know that I am a busy owl. I need food.

[Stares at the wall].

Let me come up with a flashback here. Kellog’s Corn Flakes has been my favourite food for quite a long time, and as a child I loved it. Then there was Kellog’s Chocos to join the party, and there were offers like free dinosaur toys with the packets. Everything was so good at that time, as there was nothing much to think other than to eat some Kellog’s and then again eat more of the same.

That was quite a long time ago, and Kellog’s still remains a favourite. Lets take the instance of Guptaji’s house. Everybody wants to have food from that one place which is Guptaji’s house. It might sound strange, but actually it is not that surprising, as long as our nostalgia is alive. There was that time when we friends used to have corn flakes together – that was so long ago, but still has not faded away.

Kellog’s and childhood were best friends, and now I am looking forward to the Sitaphal Cornflakes about which it is written on the Facebook page, and the related details are provided. Custard apple and cornflakes have never been my combination, and the one big truth is that I have never had custard apple except for in the form of ice cream – and walnuts make some nice addition to the same.

Vampire Owl: What is this one? Apple Cinnamon Cornflakes? I will have that one. You should let Guptaji know. Look at the apples. I need to eat them right now. I haven’t rested on an apple tree for years.

Vampire Bat: You shouldn’t interfere. I shall bring a portion of everything. We are not going together because you are a Vampire Owl of the food.

Vampire Owl: I hope you do realize that the jackfruit tree branch near Guptaji’s house is our owl territory.

Vampire Bat: You should see this one. Cornflake Popcorn Clusters. I have never seen something like this before. See the combination? We can have them while watching one of those vampire movies with happy horror endings as serial killer murders them all. It is bloody new and looks so awesome.

Vampire Owl: Walnut Cornflakes Chocoballs! It is something that I have never seen. We should have this one with horror movies. Popcorn was always old style. Guptaji will have this one at home for sure because it is a special one.

Vampire Bat: I have no courage to see any more. I am going to Guptaji’s house. There is a nice mango tree on the left side of the dining room. I shall go and hang from there.

Vampire Owl: I shall be around too. Let me know when the smell begins to make the impact, and my presence will be there! Guptaji, here we come!

Vampire Bat: Do have focus though; the aim is to taste, not to finish everything available there!
