To the man

*who called out to me in a grocery store noticing my little one chewing on a can and gently told me its poisonous for babies
Thank you for taking the time to tell a stranger that her baby is chewing something that could be poisonous

*who never stayed in touch inspite of living in the same community and yet knocked on my doors to ask for a drop off at the airport, well, I am no Mother Teresa

Sweets overload

Turn on the tv- a random chef cooking lemon cheesecake
I surf channels and I watch the ad for Nutella
My friend calls me asking how I make Paal payasam
I log in to Facebook and am loaded with a heavy dose of modak/ kozhukattai pictures

Why oh why this happens to me?

This evening

Girls night out
Chit chat
Yap yap and yap
Order food
Gobble gobble gobble
Yap yap yap
until you realise you forgot your wallet at home

Mighty embarassing I tell ya !

Frankly my dear,you saved your ass with that answer.
Happy proposal anniversary TH.

Best place on earth

As I turn off the lights ready to hit the bed,
you stretch your arms
I curl up to you
Hug you tight
We don't talk a word
We drift off to sleep

At the sports club

a woman unexpectedly opened the shower curtains where I was bathing.Instead of being angry or ticked, I was giggling to myself.Poor soul, I must have scared her

That dress

SHE: Why are you looking at me like that?

HE: You look sexy in this dress

SHE: *sheepish smile* thank you

Fast forward the next day and the next to next day

HE: Its true I like this dress on you and I told you so, but that doesn't mean you should not change into another dress at all

World Cup

Yay, I lived to actually see India lifting the world cup.Can I even ask for more? I can die a peaceful death and go to grave.But you know how India won?
  • No restroom visits during the entire match
  • No changing positions even the slightest bit
  • Praying hard every time the commentator raises his voice or the crowd roars
  • Most of all, not interacting with folks cussing as the game progressed
Worth it all..Great job team INDIA

Yet another time

You are home unusually early
We have dinner together
I make mental plans to watch tv with you, to lay on the couch along with you, to generally chit chat with you on various things
when you casually throw the bomb at me telling me
you are off to sleep now and you will wake up on time @ 2.30 in the midnight to watch the epic INDIA v/s PAKISTAN semi finals.

duhhh! what was I thinking

A mid afternoon call

from you asking me if I had lunch, if all is well with the little one inspite of your neck deep work .You have been coming home wickedly late, all you do after coming home is have dinner and crash.I couldnt help but shed a tear or two when you called.

Saturday, January 29, 2011


you are back from work unusually early
dinner done and and so is rest of the kitchen work
the little one is asleep
I look at the clock and its only 9.30 pm
I do a little victory dance
I call out for you
you are not to be seen
head to toe covered in comforter, you are deep asleep and snoring!

There is something

about rolling over to the bed space of your spouse after the spouse gets out of the bed,soak in the warmth, feel your eyes just give away to sleep while inhaling the smell so specific to the spouse.
