My very own sine wave!




So these are just your ordinary ,run-of-the-mill happenings..! Since I'm not into the habit of reading into things.....here goes....

Incident....New,treating -me -like -a queen husband says," Get yourself anything you want from me, for your birthday!" ( Of course in my too many X chromosomes containing head, Read : Pink Silk clutch)
Anyway...Upside...He gives me the freedom to commit daylight robbery on his credit card
Downside..Well when I share my giddy excitement with him..He helpfully offers, " Clutch...we don't have a manual transmission car!" Wait why are you banging your head on the table???

Next incident...Said car obsession competes with technology obsession..
Upside..Well I never have to worry my head with computer related angst again...Bits,bytes...RAM....Go roam!
Downside...Never having help when I'm juggling two hot dishes, and no hot mat to set anything down...Hmm perhaps I must sprout more hands, reminiscent of all Goddesses...to think that my mom complains I am not religious!

And another...So one of the big reasons I got married.Mosi..gives me total freedom,likes me as I am..and doesn't care where I've been!
Upside...the obvious..I can continue being as loud and bossy as I was..and probably always wil.Have conjured mental image of wheelchair bound me , yelling at some teenaged kid for not letting me past!And...I can still run off chasing exotic viruses..worrying only about competitive enthusiasm levels.
Downside.( you mean there is one?) well..shoot me for this..But..It irks me sometimes,for the smallest of seconds that he isn't very possessive.Must therefore conclude that he is not afraid of loosing hag-like ( loud and boisterous to boot) wife to anyone..Hmm that only depresses me further!

So...by way of compliment he tells me...Thank god you aren't a proper girl!!!! Hmpphh..I can be too!!!
Upside well...I think he means that as, You enjoy swearing and abusing our cricket team when they make a mess...You pay even less attention to what you're wearing than I do...Hmm..and these were the upsides eh....
Downsides..well I am a girl!!! Have an inactivated X chromosome to prove it!!! I'm not sure if being called a boy is totally complimentary.Clothes that don't make even a feeble attempt to the wash basket,shirts worn inside out,fruits charade-ing as a meal and inability to do more than one ( generally computer -oriented) thing....Hmmm...

And he obsessively loves dogs...More than people perhaps!!....

So???....I'm the same way!!!...Downside...No way!

this is extremely well written though only understandable to people who can fill the gaps evident in the writing... all downsides and upside really do no align with each other i.e. i mean are really not opposite but still a very entertaining read...

hey..Thanks for the comment Ashwin!Yeah..I often write like I am talking!And some of the downsides are just that..not necessarily meant to contrast the upsides!

Clutch-> manual transmission..[lol]
He is correct....so whats wrong??
[:D] lol!!
I know ,I know...but for us guys, pink and clutch really don't go together :P ..
All-in-all a nice read!
Hence the mathematical equation of life is yet again proven to be sinusoidal!

hey i'm trying to eliminate all the downsides here. what's wrong with being rational and logical instead of "feeling" things ?

funny post... and thanks!

shilpa said...

Sudh, FYI , a clutch is a bag that does not have a shoulder strap, and therefore needs to be 'clutched' hehe..lest you get hit over the head by this lack of info! Thanks a ton for the comment..and this is just one to prove that Maths is the basis of life..and the Tao of Physics is a great read!!!
Mosi..haha I agree with you for the most part!!! you are doing a great job...But...some of these were just plain funny...and I wont be keeping up my end of the bargain..if I dont mock-complain!
Ajinkya..Thanks a ton for the comment..great to see you here!!! Im glad that the post helped you relax!!! Haha..thats the point of my blog!!! And...yeah I often write as I talk..and hence...
Cynic...Thanks a ton for the comment!!!!! I know its hard being a girl eh...Guys are so hard to understand.I mean they want to be with a girl...but not with a 'girl'....huh ?

Cynic in Wonderland said...

there is an interesting line which i had read somewhere which said something to the effect that " arent men funny, when they want to pay the greatest compliment in their power they say that you are like a man"

shilpa said...

Hey cynic!!..hahahah..thats hilarious!! But shudder..if you suggest perhaps being with one!My husband( thinking he is making things better) says I am a proper girl!!!! Huh?
