In this one month, we have seen and said things that we could never have imagined in our wildest dreams. I remember it like it was three weeks ago….probably because it was three weeks ago, when my wife took out her pyjamas from her cupboard and was making her way to the bathroom for her nightly shower. Stopping her in her tracks, I pulled out the towel in her hand and gave her a peculiar glance.
‘Why are you using this? There are towels in the cupboard near the bathroom.’
I informed her.
‘That’s ok.’ She responded, ‘I’ll use this.’
Lifting the yellow fabric to the ceiling so she could get a clear view of it, I turned and said,
‘But, it’s a Hand Towel!’
‘I know!’ She giggled. ‘I like it!’
This is the same person who weeks later brought a heavy blanket home from her flat in Bandra since it was warmer. The other night when I was passing it to her, she stated that she didn’t want to use it! When I questioned her as to why this was the case especially since she brought it for the sole purpose of its warmth her response was;
‘It’s not big enough for me! It doesn’t cover ALL of me’
This from the woman who uses a napkin as a towel!
On the flipside, days before our anniversary, I’m certain my wife didn’t expect her ‘Rico-Suave,’ stud muffin of a husband to be standing in front of her, sporting a married waist line and wearing a pair of boxers on his head. At that point she definitely didn’t expect to be swept off her feet and placed into her suitcase! Finally, in all her life, I’m sure she didn’t think that after marriage she’d ever utter the phrase;
‘Take me out of my suitcase! It’s going to break!!!!’

Enjoy every moment!
Welcome to the first month of my married life!
