Car-mic connection!

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.

**To avoid their 3year old daughter from picking up scandalous words early on,the husband-wife duo usually resort to spelling the words out phonetically.

  1. LOL! Deeps! These men! Husband is so excited these days.. Our BMW will get delivered tomorrow – I think he is even dreaming about it πŸ™‚ Every day he gives me the current status of the countdown πŸ™‚ I am sure he is going to stand and admire ‘her’ for ages once ‘she’ comes πŸ™‚

    D: ha ha ha!I can already foresee his elation upon the delivery of your car πŸ˜†
    BTW,you look beautiful in your new gravatar,Smits πŸ™‚

    ‘To avoid their 3year old daughter from picking up scandalous words early on,the husband-wife duo usually resort to spelling the words out phonetically.’ – tell me about! I was telling husband that I want to bake a ‘C. A. K. E.’ and she jumps up and says – I want a C. A. K. E. 😦 I think the days of spelling out words is numbered for us 😦

    D: Oh yes,Smits! I guess I will have to start looking up the dictionary for some synonyms before Namnam begins to understand our code-language πŸ˜€


    1. Ha ha ha! Reminds me when there ws a fight amongst us cousins, one fella called the other ‘STUPID’ so that the chotus don’t catch the word! The youngest jumps in the middle and says ‘Stupid is a bad word! Don’t use it ok’ πŸ˜›

      D: LOL!Chotus are much smarter than their bhaiyyas & didis πŸ˜€

      Ha ha ha Poohikutty wants CAKE πŸ˜‰


      1. His dream got postponed by a few more days – until friday and he is just not happy πŸ™‚

        D: And you seem to be very happy noticing his unhappy expression…look at that smiley you’ve used πŸ˜€


  2. he he… Obviously πŸ˜›

    D: why am I not surprised at that remark ?! πŸ˜€

    And this spelling trick is good. I guess all of us use it πŸ™‚

    Smitha, you can now start using different languages for the same word…


  3. Oh My God!!!!!!!!! i always knew u r a good writer, but this new style of moulding real incidents in fiction….I am simply flat in admiration my sothukutty! umma I loved this post my dear….SUPERB!!!!

    D: Thank you,ma πŸ™‚


  4. good one! cars and guys – there’s something about it.. and when guys become husbands, they become even more obsessive about their cars!

    D: I know…sigh!


  5. You silly, Deeps! You should have known. Ha..ha..ha..

    D: I know,Sols!After 10 years of living together,I should have seen this coming!He was being true to his sun sign I guess..being the unpredictable Aquarian πŸ˜€

    Well! now you know. πŸ˜†
    D: Thang God for that! πŸ˜†


  6. Sigh…tell me about it…my guy can romance a car be it a puffing diesel Indica back in India or any damn fancy car here in USA. He can run out in the middle of a snowy night to check if his beloved car has been locked and he can spend hours polishing and waxing it. But ask him if we should go and get my eyebrows shaped and he will shrug and say what difference will it make 😯

    D: Men will be men.Period.

    Lolz you actually freaked when he was telling all those praising words :mrgreen: Thank god you only blah blahed….I would have knocked him off before giving the poor guy to explain 😈

    D: Saksh. my ‘blahs’ are much more toxic than all the knocking offs! πŸ˜€ 😈

    Oh yeah we are out of ways for communicating without Saman hearing it. If I am really angry with M and in a mood to fight, I usually prefer to drag him out in the name of an evening walk and scream my heart out…phew!!!! one jolly good reason to be living in a place surrounded by woods πŸ™‚

    D: Thats a fantastic way of confronting πŸ™‚


  7. LOL !! Im sure he wasnt praising the car. There must have been a stunningly beautiful girl somewhere around and this is how we men used to tackle the situation when caught red handed.

    D: Vims,give me your fiancee’s contact,will you?I need to tell her about some hard facts of life.She needs to know what she is getting into πŸ‘Ώ

    Or probably, it could also be a sarcastic remark of his !! who knows !!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    D: You’ve been aptly named ‘devil’ 😈


  8. LOL !!!

    all men are the same !!
    how r u?

    D: LOL @ krur singh proportions,Pix πŸ˜†


  10. LOL

    Which car is it btw? πŸ˜‰

    D: I knew your antennae would be up the minute you spot the word ‘car’ as the title πŸ˜‰


  11. Lolz πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

    D: Now you’re my true friend πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    D: I’m sure he will be 😈


  17. He teased you once. Here, he does EVERYDAY and I fall for it! Anyway, you made us laugh!

    D: Everyday,Sandhya??So I guess I’ve a lot more to look forward to πŸ˜€

    We were using nana language…if you want to say asudu (dumbo), it was ana sana duna! Try it, all the young mothers!


  18. Same pinch deeps i used to talk to varu in the same way,she used to love curd and when she has cold i used to say C.U.R.D

    But now she knows all the spellings so i started talking in hindi.I am sure that also she will pick up soon.

    D:do you want me to teach you malayalam,Sari?? πŸ˜€

    btw my hubby is also a aquarian


  19. “the husband-wife duo usually resort to spelling the words out phonetically” – :D. Tried that, till junior smartly piped up one day asked “what does ‘crap’ mean, daddy?”

    ROFL!goodness kids,I tell you!! πŸ˜€


  20. Ahhmm u such a mean lady 😈 ….can’t u just let your husband to enjoy a bit…..kidding πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    I’m damn sure he were ‘ogling’ at some chicks πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ .But probably after seeing your facial expression, he called her as ‘a car’ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ..after all, we men are same everywhere 😈
    between loved the moral of the story πŸ™‚ .But i feel ,it is also applicable for all type of relationships,alle πŸ™‚
    @ spelling the words out phoneticallY.. …gosh , kids now a days πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ …….I’m struggling hard to fool them here πŸ™‚

    D: Welcome here,Anish :). I believe when you learn to laugh at yourself you begin to appreciate the lighter side of life better and then any relationship works πŸ™‚


  21. LOL.. πŸ˜† its always those conversation keeps our life more livelier and your moral is so apt… πŸ™‚

    D: Oh yes,Kanagu,such lively conversations are so essential in a relationship. Welcome to my space πŸ™‚

    for some reason, cars or bikes never attracts me… πŸ™‚


  22. by the way is it wrong to give compliment where it is due……

    D: and invariably so the compliment becomes due when there is a car or a bike involved πŸ˜€


  23. As I was reading through, I remembered a scene from a Amitabh shashi kapoor starrer movie Shaan (?).
    Where Amitabh was admiring the car while Sashi was admiring the lady.. Bindya Goswami (?)
    yea .. relationship is all about understanding

    D: Oh yes I remember that was hilarious πŸ˜€


  24. Do as I tell u…

    put on some car-natic music, serve him some ‘car’ry, be ur ‘car’ismatic best while ‘car’rying on a conversation abt how how life is a bit like ‘car’toons πŸ˜€

    If tht doesnt work close the ‘car’tains and ‘car’ress the image of the car out of his mind πŸ˜€


    1. Gosh Nance you are one of the best husband experts I have ever come across. Will follow your suggestion and will even change my name to ‘Car’thika πŸ˜€


  25. Hehe u r talking abt spellings……we did tht, then when they cd understand tht we switched to hindi…and now we are beating Kannada to death[both of us are not so fluent u see :-(]

    D: We use malayalam,english and hindi at home,so I guess R& I will hve to learn swahili next πŸ˜€


  26. Just saw ur tweet…..the illness takes the joy out of the change of climate really….the whole lot of us will have to take atleast 1 dose of antibiotics for sure…..even my daughter is at home with the flu…..u tek care of urself…hope namnam gets well soon πŸ™‚

    D: Thank you,Nance.Hope Naina gets well soon too πŸ™‚


  27. Trust me exactly the same incident happened with me.

    I was drooling over my car and made a comment on how hot she was and the lady almost pounced on me with the respecting girls gyan only to know that I really really love my car πŸ˜€

    D: Now you know what us girls are capable of dont you??!!
    Welcome here,Prats πŸ™‚


  28. BTW Deeps, this spelling is something even we resorted to. Once when my mother asked me whether it was okay to give my son some ripe M.A.N.G.O, he all of 2, immediately said, ‘Yes!’ It seems by then he had picked up what this spelling stood for!! πŸ˜›
    The same way once my husband asked me to take the Protinex biscuits which the doctor had prescribed for me during pregnancy. Elder son who was almost 5 said, ‘I want some!” My husband asked him what it is he wanted. He said, “What you are giving Mom to eat!” πŸ˜†

    D: ha ha ha that was hilarious!Here Namnam is slowly learning to decode our code-words πŸ™‚


  29. Ha ha πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ™‚ I agree and and who will not agree to be laughed at when it wasn’t another person but the car being admired πŸ™‚ I gush like that about my laptop … how efficient, how fast, how easy to manipulate and what a coll looking dude is my laptop πŸ™‚

    D: I know!I feel the same for my laptop πŸ˜‰ ! I’m a total wreck when my laptop stops working or if the internet connection doesnt come through πŸ˜€

    We also used spelling when my kids were young, it stopped the day my daughter said “May I have some I.C.E.C.R.E.A.M. before dinner… ?”

    D: πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

    So make hay while the sun shines πŸ™‚
