On one hand a husband misses his wife when she is away, he writes a few lines to express his feelings, he puts it on his blog, a fair few of the readers go AWWWWWW…. so sweet…. your wife is so lucky…. get her to read it….
A devilish few think, its make up for the previous post…. a few think its missing her housekeeping skills…. a few think its the COOK who is being missed… and a few think its laundary that is missed, bill paying remembrances and what not !!!!
Deep down though, I know its SHE who is being missed….
So you eventually think you have to show her your softer side and get her to read it….. coz the devils must be IGNORED !!
———————————————- Meanwhile ——————————————–
You tell her, “you know what, your the star on my blog ! I even wrote a few lines for you”
She : I am making garma garam roti’s… why dont you sit and eat !
Me : Naa we will sit together…
She : Oh ! god… since you read that lady’s blog, why are you feeling guilty about eating hot chapati’s ! I love feeding you hot chapati’s… you sit… !
Me : I dont feel guilty because of any lady, she only gave me something to think ! Anyways, you gimme a few roti’s I ll eat !!!
She : There you go !
Me : Coming back to the blog, I wrote for you !
She : You want pickle ? (It seems every line i say with the word blog in it doesnt go in her ears)
Me : No.
Soon after 13 hot hot chapati’s !! my dinner is over !!… I sit and watch as she eats along with my brother and sister in law… (son is at friends house)
the moment she goes to pick up her third roti… I growl… “you didnt come to the park today !! to jog !! ”
She : Good for you, you and your Sonam alone… !
Me : that is the last roti…. (quickly i pick up the kaju katli box from the dining table and put it on the refrigerator)
Me : How many times do I tell you dont buy sweets for the house !
She : Its for Hriday !
Me : yea yea tell me…
—- Dinner over —-
She wants to see some comedy serial, I go towards the laptop and am thinking of connecting to the Internet to check if any comments have come…
She : Dont you dare touch the computer…. sit beside me…. Whole day in office you have no work and you only blog…. at home sit like a good husband…. No need to connect to the internet ! (the tone is crystal clear & THREATENING ! )
Me (sheepishly smile and revert) : I was just recharging the Ipod for my morning jog….
I tamely sit and watch the serial like an obidient pet …. they just scream to make it sound funny but I really cant find it funny.
After about 30 minutes of torture… finally its over…. She gives me the remote…. and tells me you can watch what you want… !
Immedeatly Star Cricket, and voila ! Highlights of India / Australia Perth Test match…. wow !!! She just hits her head for the cardinal sin she committed…. Its time for her to be the kitten now… !! he he he…
but she won’t be the kitten…. In the house she is the lioness….
She : Hey… lets make my poster… ! I have to advertise the Ladakh Trip !
Me : Have you made a draft ?
She : No.
Me : Sorry boss, I wont make it !
She : oh come on ! help me !
Me : Your not helping yourself… why should I ??
She : Come on, I am not good at making posters !
Me : you didnt even try, atleast put the dates, schedules charges in one place and the core message in it… and leave the designing part to me… sorry but you are asking for spoon feeding and I cant do it…. Do you come and make excel sheets & presentations for me in office ???
She : Come on… lets connect the internet, you make the poster and upload it in mail… I ll get a printout from a cyber cafe tomorrow ….
Me : dont disturb… I m watching the highlights…
She : oh… come on…, be a sweetheart and make it, in return, I’ll also read your blog !!!!
This is what you get for caring ! for missing ! for appreciating !
I’ll ALSO (?????) read your blog !!!
The blogger in me died a hundred deaths on hearing that line….
I am unconsolable…. sob sob…. My ego has reached the deepest pit… !! sob sob… 😦
