So the other day Seema of the famous Man-Tam twins fame, sent me a message saying that she had sent me a courier to RD’s office address (What, he is my official courier collector, one of the vows we took while getting married…I promise to collect all couriers for my wife.. 😉 )
Anyways, so she asked me if RD had got the courier
RM: Pata nahi check karti hoon
RM calls up RD ‘koi courier aya?’
RD: kya courier
RM: Seema ne send kiya
RD: kya send kiya
RD: Kya courier
so you get the drift..this is how most of our conversations are now a days..we are so
disconnected with each other passionate about our work that we converse in circles
Finally, the guy understood I was asking if he got a courier which Seema sent…and he told me he will check and get back to me in 10 minutes…now 10 minutes of RD time is 2.5 hours of normal human time
He calls up AFTER 2.5 hours and tells me kuch aya nahi…
So, I tell Seema, kuch aya nahi
Seema wonders if her brownies would be okie
As soon as I see the word brownie in her message I immediately call back RD
RM: RD, Seema ne brownies bheja hai..please please check karna
RD: Wow, brownies..oh well, but RM, agar courier ayega toh they will mail me..its not yet come
I am frustrated, bugged and irritated at RD for not getting the courier…(not that its his fault but still, who else is there to get frustrated, bugged and irritated 😉 )
RD leaves office for the day on Friday and yet no sign of the courier..
I message with a heavy heart to Seema saying no sign of the courier
She messages back saying ‘ Hope the brownies dont become blackies’ hehehehe 🙂
Yesterday morning, just as I was looking at my computer screen vacantly, RD calls up
RD can call up only and only if there is an emergency..or…or..or
When the guy has no work and wants to know if his wife has no work too…you know, most times he calls up saying ‘So what are you doing?’
RM: I am working
RD: What are you working on
RM: office work
RD: accha..listen…whose picking up R today?
yep, this is how most times we start our conversations, not like hi darling and I am missing you types eh?
Anyways I digress.
So RD calls up: RM, courier aa gaya
RM: yayayay kya hai usmein..brownies theek hai kya?
RD: theek toh lag rahe hai…wait wait, aur bhi kuch ahi issmein
RM: kya kya
RD: Ruk main photo leke send karta hoon
RM: okie okie..
And just to make my wait unbearable, the man who took vows of in sickness and in health,in richness and in poverty and those lines, calls me at about 1.30 in the afternoon…
RD: you called me?
RM: yes (sarcastically) about 3 hours before
RD: arey I was in a meet
RM: I dont remember why I called you, whats the point of returning a call after 3 hours
RD: oh so do I get those brownies for you home??
Now tell me, who on earth would want to torture his sweet loving, brownie dreaming wife like this?
Anyways, he was kind enough to pick me up on the way and as soon as I entered the car, I grabbed the packet and opened the brownies…Seema, being the nice one had told me to heat in the microwave before eating..abhi who has the patience to wait..so RD and I decided ek chotu bite….and then we will wait for R to come and eat together..the ek chotu bite became bigger and bigger and when R came…
RM: Arey Seema masi sent you a present
I show her the brownie and sorry Seema but between the three of us, half of it was already over the car..while I was giving bite sized pieces to RD as he was driving he is like ‘Arey, thoda bada dena itna kya kanjoosi kar rahi hai’
and finally he came to the verdict that THIS brownie is better than the CCD one…there Seema, you have another fan in the making 🙂
and oh….this is all what she sent us 🙂
