So, what happens

when you get invited for a traditional baby shower and the shower is early in the morning on a weekday?

-you have to wake up unusually early,
-bathe unusually early, cook a 2 course meal for TH and pack,
-get ready yourself-which means, dust the wedding sarees and juggle between the red/ blue/ green sarees
-decide on the green one with maroon border
-pick up matching accessories
-try draping the saree-ya afterall, saree has seen some light out of the suitcase only 3-4 times in a year
-struggle with the pallu
-get TH to help you pin the saree and adjust the fleets
-brush the hair, a make up here and there
-grab a bite of the breakfast
-and finally sit in the car
-all within a deadline of 45 minutes to go
-get TH drop me at the venue of the baby shower
-hurry through the stairs to be on time
-knock on the door and wait for the door to be opened
-when a sudden realisation dawns that
I have indeed draped the saree "ulta pulta"-the inner on the outer and vice versa.

Sigh!

My experience from the recent college farewell: All girls need to have at least ONE female friend good at dressing others up and making them look like damsels... :)
