My Blog’s second birthday 24/05/2011

Who are all on your  list of invitees on your Blog’s second birthday? Asked my husband as we were having breakfast.

Well, I am still thinking, I said.

You always do things at the last minute, no advance planning at all, he complained.

But that’s been my style of functioning all these years, I am sure you got used to it by now, I said.

Keep thinking till the last minute and—his voice trailed off

Its going to be a surprise, I said excitedly.

Your surprise might turn into a damp squib, like it sometimes happens, observed my husband.

Don’t sound like a wet blanket, I  accused.

O.K.I shall patiently wait till tomorrow and start the count down, he said.

Thanks, that sounds better, I said.

By the way, what list were you talking about?

Your list of invitees ofcourse, I thought you wished to throw a party to celebrate the occasion, he said.

No parties this time, I am quite tired of hosting them, I said.

Good, I am glad you have taken a decision as what you do not want,  he laughed.

Yes, deciding something on  an elimination  process is good, don’t you think? I said gloating over my ‘ style’ of functioning.

Then are you planning something which will burn a hole my pocket? His concern was obvious from his tone.

Don’t worry, I will take care of that, I assured him.

Noticing me deep in thought, he suddenly said, are you expecting a gift from me by any chance?

Yes, you are ‘absolutely’ right, I  screamed. And am thinking what to ask, I added.

Don’t you know Gifts are  given without asking, he said sounding very serious.

Yes, I know but what if the person doesn’t volunteer to give one, I rued.

Even before I could complete the sentence, my voice was drowned in the shrill ring of the phone and I saw my husband rushing to answer the long distance call.
