When you come with hands like these people are bound to ask question. Yes I am accepting the hard fact that people can come and ask anything, we are Indians you see.
So when a colleague asked "Ma'am attending a marriage today?"
I quipped, "No, got married long back and paying Toll Tax for it, the annual Toll Tax" ;-)
Yes, its Hartalika Teej today, we women fast today for the well being of our husband log. Traditionally we aren't supposed to eat or drink anything till next morning but I keep a chilled out fast. Have coffee, sabudana khichdi or whatever is acceptable as traditional fast food. I added traditional because if I just say Fast food the meaning changes in today's context ;-)
Smart quip also reminds me of what happened yesterday. When I was getting the mehndi applied, a call came for me on my Mom's phone but with both my hands tied up (literally ;-)) I asked my Mom to take the call and say I haven't come from office yet.
As soon as the call was done my son quipped, "Kisko Ullu banaya?" (Whom did you fool?) We were like zapped!!! Thanking God that at least he didn't say any thing when the call was on.
Too Much I Say!!! Too Much! A little too much!
