in conversation... again.

A few days after we moved-in to our current apartment (Yes, we've moved again!), V came to pick me up at the station and wanted to go out for dinner.
V: you want to go straight or you want to go home and then go out.
me: home, please.
V: but... we can go straight for dinner.
me: HOME. i need to pee!
V; the restaurant will have loos, i'm sure.
me: tch. No! Home.
V: why? You need to mark your territory?


we had friends over for christmas. one of them was accompanied by her boyfriend. our initial plans were to gang up against the boyfriend (the rest of us v/s him, that is) and pelt him with snowballs.
but of course, there was no snow on christmas day.
to pacify us disappointed souls, vin came up with an alternative:

"there's ice in the freezer. let's hit him with that!!"


we haven't had much time to converse the past couple of weeks.
this morning, i decided to give it a rest and at least have b'fast together. the topic somehow veered to how some men are really hen-pecked. (Yes, I know... we discuss other people over rare conversations. don't judge us!)

vin: sometimes, i really wish i was also hen-pecked.
me: eh?
vin: you're okay with whatever I decide to do. you don't nag me.
me: yeah, i'm the coolest wife you'd ever have found.
vin: but i W.A.N.T. to be henpecked. you refuse to peck me. please peck me?!

just like that.

there are days.
and there are days.

some days you wake up with a spring in your step. and you try really hard to not let external situations affect you. but they do.
and you can't help but feel dejected. and the fact that you try so hard at maintaining those "happy" pretenses just makes you feel worse. and you have so much on your plate, that you can't afford to put anything but your best foot forward.

and then, you talk to a friend. you play good, happy music. you look into the mirror and dance your heart out. and the world is so much better. just like that.

good friends, email, cell phones, music, full length mirrors.
what would the world be without them.
