G: hey the site engineer called,the gas line is on
me:yippee so we can move in last week of december
G:uhhhh..actually i would love to but remember what ma(both the mothers) said?? about 15th dec-15th jan not being "good times"
me: Oh baby ya..not fair now i have to wait for a month..when is your shanghai trip due anyway?
G:not sure yet..can be sometime next week
me:baby ya(slightly irritated now) i have been hearing this since 2 weeks..dates pls.
G:(with lots of patience) i dont know yet baby...(looking straight ahead as he drives)
i realised i had touched the wrong nerve,considering we were going to buy MY new wardrobe..a 3 door wardrobe or 4 door would depend a lot on this conversation..hhmmm
so i look out of the window, suddenly turn at him and say
me:wow baby we will finish two years of marriage in Feb :) :)
me: remember two years back this time we were just talking over the phone and i was too shy to say "i love you" over the phone and i used to text you.
oh dint i tell you,he is a man of few words..anyways by now i was expecting a question which would/should sound like this"what do you want for our anniversary baby? but nothing came.
me: i have saved some money for your gift hehehehe!!
G: No ya..i seriuosly dont need anything plz dont splurge money again
me: but baby its our second marriage anniversary..
G: ya i know baby..but i seriously dont want any gift
meanwhile my brain does quick calculations,does this mean i get no gift too?does this mean that there are chances of the cupboard being a gift..naheeeeee!!!!
G: dont worry, we will go and get you something :)
me:nooo nooo not like taht ya..i mean i cant think of anything i want..really
G: no baby..we will get you something
there is no point of arguing with a man who has made up his mind..and i look at from the window and smile..m loving it
I put my hand on his as he holds the clutch, and i see the tiny smile on his face amidst the insane Pune traffic.
marriages are maintained here on earth,even though i am married to an angel*touchwood*
