About the Man I Married

RD is a nice guy, as most of the people who know him, will agree…however, sometimes,I feel I married the guy who can win the prize for being the laziest on earth!
Note the conversations and his Confession πŸ™‚

*Written for record purposes*
RM: RD, can you please remove the diyas from there


RM: Arey woh blue bucket mein hai

RD: WEll, errr..arey chalega abhi…

RM :But I want to light diya for karthikgai

RD: Toh just put those electric lamps Baroda amma gave last year na..why do you want to do the hard work of taking out the lamps, washing them, pouring oil in them, making the wicks for them…etc etc..

RM: !!!


I am washing the patrams while telling R and RD to clear the table..

RD takes up the task of cleaning the table

He cleans up and then comes to me and says ‘Hey the Table was so clean today..how come?’

RM: Thats because you and R ate on the sofa, and I was the only one sitting on the table and eating

RD: Oh! is it?

RM: !!!

I mean how lazy can you get? cant remember where you ate! *Rolls eyes*


and now the confession
I got the book ‘The Annual Haircut’by Rohini Nelikani (Reviewed on IMC)

Its a wonderful book with the main character’s name as Sringeri Srinivas. Both R and I have giggled a lot on that name in the past few days. One mornig, as we were sitting in the bus stop, I told her I loved that name

R: Toh aap ka naam aab se hoon Sringeri Srinivas bolavu chu okie?

RM: okie

R: Hello, Sringeri Srinivas Amma

and we both giggled

Monday night she tells RD, ‘Amma ka name aaj se Sringeri Srinivas hai’

RD: hahahah! is it?

R: Toh aapka naam kya rakhe

RD thinks for a milli second and says ‘well Shomberi Srinivas’

For theΒ  uninitiated Shomberi in Tamizh means lazy…Mark this RD, because I have noted your confession online πŸ™‚Β 

Perfect name for the man eh?

    Waiting for RD to comment here πŸ™‚

    Btw, did not know you have a Baroda connection too!

  2. Sumana says:

    Well i need another version of Shomberi Srinivas for the hubby who thinks only blackberry is his world.

  3. uma says:

    hahaha..I loved the name shomberi srinivas…at least RD was candid enough to admit that..I have to ‘remind’ the hubby about 10 times before something gets done…sometimes, if at all!!!!
    need to get that book now..

  4. tell me about it RM.. “lazy-man” is another name of my husband too.. lol

  5. Mathangi Vijay says:

    Ha ha that was really cute. I really have a doubt. When we ask hubby to help us in cleaning the lamp/help is kitchen they are lazy. But if suppose the phone/iPad/Laptop/internet does not work for a minute they become the most active person in the world and cant rest until it is up again!! Why is that???

  6. LOL
    So cute you guys are! πŸ™‚
    Waiting for RD to comment on this post! πŸ˜€

  11. Smitha says:

  12. Ashwathy says:
