Even observing a single litter free day is an impossibility in the Indian context, I said even as I was reading the day’s newspaper.
I completely agree, however with a slight difference, said my husband .
Nothing unusual of you to do that, I retorted.
I have a very valid point to make and you ,only you are responsible, he emphasized.
O.K.What is it? I asked.
Point number one: You pile up atleast a week’s newspapers which are left lying in the drawing room for I don’t know how long, he complained pointing to the centre table.
Point number two: You leave the day’s laundry lying in the bed room instead of putting it back where it belongs.
Point number three: The dining table is cluttered with all kinds of things, even your sewing stuff.
Point number four: you are encroaching into my space by filling my wardrobe with your clothes.
Point number five which is very very important is that you don’t seem to pay heed to anything I say to keep environment in our home clean. Haven’t you heard the saying, A place for everything and everything in its place , he reminded me for the enth time.
Have you finished or is there any other accusation left? I said.
There are more, he replied.
Let them wait, and now you should listen to what I am going to suggest and let’s put into practice right away. I stated.
Haven’t you heard of division of labour? Why don’t you help me put everything back in its respective place and keep our house spic and span?
All that we need is to purchase a few extra cupboards to put ‘my’ things in so that they will not be visible to you. How do you like the idea? I asked enthusiastically.
You mean to dump your things in? he shot back.
