I have been trying to sort of frame this post .. coz its something i want to show my kids some years down the line…
you know when they ask me about how i got hooked 😉
I ve wondered abt the tone i should take – Fun and easy , down right mushy , dreamy eyed and bushy tailed , sweetness and sunshine !
So finally I guess the too much planning is spoiling it all . and i should just begin. and see “how its going?”
Meeting 1 : He smiles at me and we two are the only people talking in the room that seems awkwardly quiet ! ( thats never happened before . mum seems upset. his mum s not too well. his father doesnt talk much and my father s trying to break ice )
so we go and do the “talk alone” ritual.
He says ” I am looking for some one , whose ready to stay with my parents . Wishes to work and is smart and intelligent”
She says : ” I am looking for someone who shares equal responsibility , with whom i can talk to openly . coz if we cant talk , we cant be friends and we cant be together”
we smile . we laugh . we exchange stories abt his tryst with swimming , his encounters with prospective brides to be . and discover things that we love to do .. dance , movies , travel .
When we finally make a move back . he says ” oh that reminds of another story … but that can happen next time”
and i smile 🙂
