Where are you off to? I said seeing my husband stepping out in great haste.
I wish to make hay while the sun shines, he replied curtly.
Why do you have to be so curt? I said offended.
I thought of replying in idiomatic language for once, he grinned.
O.K. good. I am glad I was able to influence you atleast a little, I said feeling happy.
Now, I suppose I don’t have to tell you where I am headed to, he said.
How should I know? I don’t have the remote guess, the unpredictable husband that you are, I confessed.
Haven’t you read the top news in today’s newspaper? He asked.
Not yet, but is it something earthshaking? Why don’t you tell me, I said.
Don’t delay me any further because I wish to avail myself of discounts offered for Aadi month. I am sure I can pick up a few pure zariveshtis while the season is still on , he said and rushed off.
