some people influence ur life. in ways that they don't know. something like that seems to have happened with me and suruchi's hubby, ashish. neither of us knew that he'd influenced me in any way! not till i decided whom to marry at least. THEN, we realized how like him Vin was. and suruchi and i got a brand new topic to bitch about.
here's why we think our once extremely marriageable husbands *no, they're not available now!* are mele-mein-bichde-hue bhai!
:: they're both born in april. *it's ashish's happy bud-day today... wish him y'all!*
:: both needed a tutorial to scrap on orkut. they still rely on their wives' to upload/change pics there.
:: both don't see the big deal about getting married. they can't understand commitment phobia. *from men, or women.*
:: neither knows how to upload songs on a shuffle/iPod. :D
:: they do NOT speak while eating. they believe that food must be focussed upon. *yeah, rule out candle-lit dinners!*
:: they can't multi-task. hmm... eating while talking is also multi-tasking, u see.
:: they both have receding hairlines. *they blame it on their wives. but i have proof that vin had a receding hairline prior to marrying me!*
:: they both aspire to have long, flowing, rock-star tresses.
:: their alter-ego is that of a rock-star. yeah, reality hits home very frequently when u have wives like us! :D
:: they indulge their wives. not because they have to, but coz they like to. *that's what we like to believe!*
:: they are romantics at heart, but have no clue how this sentiment can be conveyed to us. actually, they don't see the need for conveying. it's there. that should be enough, no? NO!
:: they don't flirt or ogle at other women. they don't comprehend when any woman flirts with them. they report incidents back home to the respective wife who THEN tells them that maybe the woman was hitting on them! then, of course we login and bitch about them! LOL!
:: they can't understand how we could earn a living by selling mobile content.
:: they don't understand the affinity to the cult. *mine's better in this case. he has cured me of the bonding to a large extent!*
:: they were both extremely patient even during the weddings. i would have slapped the next person who came up for a pic while i was starving!! i'm sure suruchi would have too! :D
:: they believe that suruchi & me talking regularly can only lead to trouble! :D *vin's actually scared of suruchi!*
:: they wake up at unearthly hours like 7a.m. even on holidays and/or weekends!!!! while their wives can sleep till noon, if allowed. sigh!
:: they think their wives are VERY tech savvy! LOL!!!
:: they give in to persistent nagging about seeing really bad hindi movies. and sit thru the movie - comments & all - and actually smile at the end of it! *yeah, it's more out of relief that the movie's over*
:: their wives love dancing, while they insist they have two left feet!
:: that song from the old raj kapoor movie, sangam: "main kya karu ram, mujhe buddha mil gaya" would be a perfect fit for them both! :D
it's uncanny how alike they are! suruchi, if i've missed out on things, leave a comment, i'll add it here...
all said & done, putting up with us can be a task at times. here's a toast to the fact that you both understand that you really can't do anything about it now! :)
**edited to add ashish's comment. my comments on the comment in italics.
Hey i want to add my comment here...since i am the person being talked about ...and some things should be clarified for ppl who are going to read this blog:
1. I don't own ipod, never did, nor someone close to me ever did (i move among the non tech, non cool guys and gals) so its incorrect to assume at this point of time that i wont know how to upload a song. *that was just an example. do u know how to set customized RBTs, eh? mobile toh u have, rite?! :P excuses!*
2. I dont focus on food....i pray to it. i have had so many terrifying experiences when food is concerned that a good meal is worth praying to (before we have any smart comments on this, Suruchi cooks good food) *candle-light dinners are supposed to be romantic, u know! u shud relax. and TALK to ur wife! WHILE eating.*
3. Our wives are solely to blame on our receding hairline. No matter what Reshma says...and Vin will agree. *i have photographic evidence that this is not true. at least for vin. shall wait for suruchi to comment on urs!*
4. Suruchi not working on a particular day is more troublesome than suruchi and reshma talking *LOL! completely agree!*
1.Neither of them understand Bong...we do :)
2.On receding hair line...even i have evidences and eye witnesses to prove my innocence.
3.On I-pod,ashu will look at it ,turn it around and say...isme song kaha se upload karte hai..LOL!
i think i should send this to vin... :0)
