Why is it called a bouncer?
It doesn’t bounce, neither is it used outside pubs to scare off people, then why is it called a bouncer?
If it were called a rocker, it would have been more appropriate. Anyway, Akshara likes it whatever we refer to it as. Before she went to India, it was the best bet we had to make her fall asleep.
Nowadays, I am being used as a substitute for the bouncer for achieving the same result. As is common knowledge, energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another. Similarly, when Akshara wants to go to sleep at 3 AM , I have to rock her to sleep. In this process, Akshara grabs the “sleep quotient” from me and descends into a sound sleep, leaving me wide awake!
