The Husband Chronicles: #8
The Husband apparently hates gossip. I on the other hand thrive on gossip and have found an equally enthusiastic accomplice in Amma *my ma-in-law* While Amma’s cooking lessons to me are in progress, we are so deep in talk, discussing lives of film-stars, politicians, neighbors and even their neighbors, etc, that we don’t even realize when The Husband is standing behind, glaring down at us before he walks away with disgust writ large on his face.
Yesterday The Sulking Husband walked in to see Amma and me doubled up in laughter over a particularly juicy bit of gossip. After directing the customary glare coupled with a disgusting expression on his face our way, he proclaimed “Whoever you’ll are making fun of is making 10 times more fun of you’ll” before he walked out of the room.
Did the statement have any effect on us? Yes it did. We laughed till tears were streaming down our faces! ;-D
I am a Punjabi married to a Telugu. It was an arranged marriage. Yes, really.
And like it usually happens in an arranged marriage scenario, my husband and I started getting to know each other post marriage.
The Husband Chronicles first started as a facebook update on a boring Sunday afternoon and most people on my friends list enjoyed the 1st one, and the ones that followed, so much that they kept asking for more.
After the 5th Chronicle I realized that I enjoyed writing them too and began numbering them. From fb status updates they graduated to becoming blog posts.
The Husband feigns indifference and annoyance at being the protagonist of this series, but just between you and me he gets a big thrill at being written about.
