The Husband Chronicles: #14

‘Why are you carrying such a big, heavy bag?’ is what The Husband unfailingly asks each time we step out of the house together.
In the initial days of marriage I mistook it for a query and answered it. Time and experience have bestowed wisdom and these days I just roll my eyes/snort/flash a fake smile, depending on the mood.
So, in case you are curious, about why I carry a ‘big, heavy bag’ and what could the contents be, the bag holds my keys, tissues, a small mirror, lippy and liner, my sunglasses and cell phone AND The Husbands 3 cell phones, wallet, 2 card cases, spare visiting cards, sunglasses, glasses, important papers, keys and car keys.
Very soon I’ll need to start carrying a strolley.

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.
