Quite surprised at his unexpected question, coming from a reluctant reader of my blog that he was, I took some time to answer him.
I am waiting, he said, his expression conveyed his impatience.
Hope they are not too lofty which are likely to burn a hole in my pocket, he said as though to warn me.
It all depends on how you look at it, I replied albeit gingerly.
Don’t you think the first anniversary should be celebrated in a befitting manner? I said.
Now you seem to warn me of what you are going to suggest next.( I could sense his anxiety from his tone).
Oh, don’t worry, it’s going to be a very austere celebration, I said laying his fears at rest.
Well, I have three options and it is for you to decide which one appeals to you most, I said.
Treat my readers, especially the ones who care to post their comments to a good dinner at a decent hotel.
Treat them to a good lunch at home.
Ask my readers who post comments to treat ‘me” instead, I said all in one breath.
None of them are practical because of obvious reasons, he observed.
Oh, yes, I know. I had forgotten that it is not possible because of geographical factors, I stated.
I have a bright idea which is not only practical but possible as well, I said.
Just buy me a Diamond Necklace, I said and waited for his reply.
Readers, can you guess what his reply was?
