Morning conversations …..

Posted by Sowmya on October 19, 2011


Conversation 1


Me (beaming):  See what I got you

Hubby : I am impressed

Me (in a regular foot in the mouth situation) : It was a ‘Buy 1 get 1 free’ offer!!!

(In my defense I said it to impress my ‘thrifty’ mindset on him)

Hubby: Oh! So this is the free one?

Me: No…the other one is free

Hubby: So what is the other one?

Me:  ‘Best Friend’

Hubby: So am I not your best friend?

Me: Well….hmm…..you see….

Hubby(now angry): I am waiting for an answer

Me: Let me get you coffee….



Conversation 2


Me(so excited):  This is what I bought in US

Hubby: Why are you so excited?

Me: Yaar! This is the probably the only proper useful thing I did in life

Hubby: California??

Me (Grrrr): CA may be California for USA but for me it is Chartered Accountant. I am a CA

Hubby: Ok, so you marrying me was not proper or useful?

Me: (OMG, now what do I do?????): You see, our marriage is not something I did. It is a boon that was granted to me by the Almighty and for which I am forever grateful (Phew!)

Hubby: You should be a politician

Door slams

And that, folks, is Wednesday………..

Six word stories

Posted by Sowmya on October 16, 2011

Ever since I read Ernest Hemingway’s famous challenge, I have been racking my brains for similar stuff. Finally I have come up with something. What do you think about it?

  1. I resisted. He persisted. Bloody hands
  2. Opposites don’t always attract. Just Married.
  3. Good man. Rash driver. Don’t cry
  4. Man fasts. Government falls. Chaos reigns.
  5. Good weather. Sour companion. Ruined day.
  6. His watch.time stops. Memories flood
  7. Few fights. Many joys. Graveside recollections
  8. Small device. Changed world. Smart visionary
  9. No work. Lazy Sunday. Wishful thinking
  10. Large house. Eerie silence. Unshed tears
  11. More memories less dreams? Good night
  12. Ex-lover. Bitchy colleague. Together forever
  13. First husband. Fourth wife. Traditions intact.
  14. Physical distances. Heartfelt exchanges. Technology miracles.
