In the last tag of random facts bout me, the fact that got most attention was the fact that I once forgot my wife, prompted by Shail, I think I should actually make a post out of it !!
Well it was one of those Diwali days and my inlaws had gone out of station, at that time there were a lot of thefts happening so they wanted that some one would go to their house to sleep.
So I and my wife would go to their house to sleep in the night, it was also attractive for us as all our friends would come over and we would watch movies or play cards and have a full house to us. I loved cooking eggs and I don’t get any chance to do that in my own house so that was the added attraction. If mom reads this I am gone !
Well after a late night party which ended at 4 in the morning I got up at 7 with my stomach churning a bit… I prefer to use my own loo and I am very very very fussy bout the bathroom. Our office has a very neat bathroom but if I have to go to the loo, I have to go home 12 kms away…. Lol…
So I woke up wifey to pack and go, I told her to leave everything as it is and we will clean it up later and lets go home.
My house is just 10 mins drive on the bike. (in those days I had a Yamaha Enticer … aaah those were the days !!!)
They live on the 1st floor, I climbed down the stairs and wife was locking the door and coming after, somehow … half in sleep and half in a trance to get to the loo fast…. I started the bike…. And simply drove home…
At home my mom was on the verandah on our swing and asked me where is Hetal ?
And I was like oh !! Gulp !!
My mom just clapped her hand once and said to me “Maryo” (Gujarati word, I guess I don’t need to translate, but well it means you’re Dead now !!)
I immediately went back, no I didn’t go to the loo first, I went back….
and I found her hips on hands….
I was like smirking, but didn’t dare burst out laughing…
I just took the bike near her and …. said, “ I ‘ m so so sorry ! I, I, well was sleepy and don’t know, kaunsi dhoon mein tha…”
She burst out laughing and told me she had never seen me so scared and sat on the bike and we drove home…. I guess she was happy by the amount of fear she saw on my face… lol… Now I am thankful to her sense of humour.
I am so, so absent minded and forgetful what to do…. Have some sympathy with me too !!
Now I am sure Smita will agree I am the King of forgetfulness !!
