The Husband Chronicles: #9


So, The Husband is on ‘water therapy’ today, for ‘a healthier lifestyle’ . So,I’ve been instructed to fill a copper pot with water, and replenish it each time The Husband finishes drinking from it. And, I’m supposed to be doing this throughout the day.

Did I mention that the ‘water therapy for a healthier lifestyle’ is being carried between having rava dosa with 3 types of chutneys for breakfast, fried fish, fish in a tangy gravy, spicy chicken, rasam and dal for lunch and pizza to munch on in the in evening while watching, and being the armchair expert for, the India-England World Cup match?


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.
