They reached their building.He got out of the car.Stood there for a few seconds,admiring the beauty.
He exclaimed,‘Isnt she strikingly beautiful??’
She who was still inside the car with her daughter who refused to come out unless her Mama buckled her shoes,responded,‘huh!what?’
He repeated,‘She’s so smart,so attractive,so stunning!’
By now,she was well out of the car,holding on to her daughter with one hand and her hand-bag and daughter’s water-bottle with the other.
She was visibly shaken by his remark.She gave him a mighty stare.A stare that seemed as though her eye balls would pop out.
She retorted,‘I know its been a while since I’ve been to a salon.I also know parenting,homemaking and blogging have taken most of my time and energy which means I’m not looking my best now.But that doesnt mean you can admire any sundry beautiful girl in front of me.
‘you need not be beautiful from the outside.What is important is to be beautiful from inside….blah blah blah blah blah’
Before she could go on blabbering,he stopped her right there and blurted,‘ YOU M.O.R.O.N**! I WAS TALKING ABOUT OUR CAR!’.
The snubbed look on her face was enough to make him burst out laughing!
She wished she had a magic wand which could make her invisible!Since that was not to be,she simply whisked off inside to serve him his favourite Chicken curry and Rice!
And then they lived happily ever after
MORAL OF THE STORY: Marriage is not just about making each other laugh.Its also about allowing the other to make fun of you and being able to laugh at yourself.
