Being a wife is like being a master juggler.
Needless to say, with no prior experience, I landed myself in a big mess. In my good old maiden days, my mom decided what I would wear to work, and my dad did the ironing. My shoes always shined, and I left for work after having a five course meal for breakfast.
Looks like I missed the train and I’m stranded at platform number 9¾. But, I’m getting better at it, everyday…
One and half years into this new life, I can do a lot of things simultaneously. Sometimes I wonder if little elves come and cook me the finest delicacies, while I’m busy doing other things.
I guess not. Your mind just begins to work mysteriously to speed up your life and restore the fun back in your system.
The other day, while doing the laundry, I suddenly realized that my husband and I wear the same color to work. Strange! That’s what twins do (or are forced to do), not man and wife. I was confused. Despite my conscious effort to break the trend, I just couldn’t.
And, suddenly I knew why. Not so long ago I used to spend a lot of time sitting in front of the wardrobe deciding what to wear (not only for myself, but also for him). Now, I simply pull at whatever color catches my eye. That’s done in a minute. And, it’s easy… spares me a lot of time to have romantic breakfasts to begin my day. 🙂
And, why did I name this piece “Ami bhule gechi ki chaitam, aar tui ki bhalo bashti”? It’s because I was listening to this wonderful song when I unveiled the mystery of the matching colors. (I’ve modified the words slightly, to match the moment…)
Moreover, forgetting what you like to get what you love is sometimes a BIG DEAL!
Here’s a picture of my “Eureka!” moment.
