[X] asks a question to [A]. [A] replies saying [B] is working on it and will get back ASAP.
[B] replies to [X] without keeping [A] in loop. So, [A] doesn’t know [B] has replied to [X].
Another person [C] replies to [X] without keeping anyone in loop. So, both [A] and [B] do not know this.
In the meantime, another person [D] asks a totally different question to both [A] and [B]. Luckily, [B] answers it, so, this problem was solved.
[E], out of nowhere, interferes and tries to answer [X]’s question without keeping [A], [B], [C] and [D] in the loop.
After a while, [X] forwards [E]’s e-mail to [A], [B] and [C] without the attachment [E] sent that [X] used to get the answer.
[A] is totally clueless while [B] and [C] still try to impress [X].
OMG! Enough! This day has been a total disaster!! :-|
The parcel was in your hands when the music stopped. You picked up a random slip to perform the dare. The slip read “Ask your better half on a date“. The minute you read the slip I knew this was very easy for you. I knew you would do it for sure. We have mocked this performance a thousand times before. At home. At Delhi. At our Engagement. At our Marriage. At our honeymoon. But that was all not in front of a big crowd.
So this time was different. Really different. There were 50 people around looking at us. I picked up Lime and lowered my eyes. You played your role, you asked for a date on one bent knee. The crowd shouted, ‘Of course!’ even before I answered ‘Yes’. Were we so obvious? It lasted for split seconds before we both burst into laughter.
Must thank the event organizer who took this pic and captured the moment forever. There are so many other things that happened in the party. But this one is my special moment.
We laugh each time we see this pic. It looks pretty funny but genuine. This picture takes me back to this event and this very same moment. Playing ‘pass the parcel’ at a Diwali Meetup last Saturday was so much fun.
May the good times never end!
Lemon is away on a business trip, traveling to California. He’s gone for a week. But it feels like he has already been away for a long time now.
I am being a bag of mixed emotions since Sunday. At one moment I feel stress and pain. Another moment I am all happy and chatting with friends. One moment, I am silent, the other moment I am totally mad. Sunday was so awesome. Monday was all blue. My life is such a colorful chaos now.
I thought I could get through most part of the day with the usual chores without him. Whatever seemed easy while he was around is not so easy now. Things have changed. Everything seems difficult. Evenings and the dark nights seem to move very slowly. Sleeping in the same room without Lemon scares me. I keep waking up every now and then to make sure that everything is okay, that no stranger is inside the house. Silly uh? No! I am scared. Really. Our apartment is right next to the highway and the sounds of an ambulance or a cop-car makes me wake up with a start in the middle of the night. I wonder how the same sound did not disturb me while Lemon was around. The fact the mother-in-law is here now makes me feel better, though.
I have been trying to stay less anxious. I wanted to be that girl who wouldn’t care much about her husband’s absence. I did not want to cry or be dramatic. I wanted to be cool and take it easy. But, I GIVE UP now. I MISS HIM. I miss my Lemon. My dear husband.
Come back soon, Lemon. Come back with a biG gift!
I am usually happy on Fridays. That Friday-feeling is so awesome you know. A feeling of joy. A feeling of weekend. A feeling of freedom. A feeling of happiness.
Well, this Friday has been so different. It was half past 4 when I woke up today. I was thirsty. I drank some water. Checked on Lime and tried to go back to sleep. But I couldn’t. I had truck load of thoughts in my mind as I tried to sleep…..
“Yesterday was a boring day. Okay. Okay. That does not mean today would be boring too. Dammit, I left my lunch box in the car. What should I cook for lunch today? Should i wake up Lemon and ask him what he wants? Nah! He wouldn’t answer that question. Lime is going to day care today after 5 days. Will he be okay? Birthday! It’s mom’s birthday this weekend. I must order something. But wait! What will I order? Ouch, my back hurts! We must change this mattress. iPhone 6 is so cool. I will ask Lemon to buy one for me. Oh! I have 3 meetings this morning. What dress will I wear today? OMG! This cold. I must drink Dayquil before leaving today. Oops. I must not be late. Let me wake up.”
In no time I was all up working in the kitchen. Cold water ran through my fingers as I did the dishes and some cleaning. Lime and Lemon were sleeping obvious to the fact that another soul was working hard to make their day easier. Cooking, dishes and cleaning are just few of the tasks I have to do every morning.
And, how I wake up both the boys is a different
story post altogether. Putting them through the morning routine, selecting their dress, getting them ready, and packing their lunch are other chores everyday.
How nice it would be if Lemon sleeps early and wakes up early as well. Just like me. Not a demand but I just wish he does. I know I am a smitten wife. But why not write a book on his laziness! No? Yes!
To all of you who did not go to work today or was just at home enjoying Friday – I hate you
