I am off for window shopping, I announced even before my husband could ask where I was headed to.
I hope you mean what you say? He asked looking doubtfully.
A big Yes. I just wish to check out what discounts are being offered for Aadi, I assured him.
Thank God, he said relieved.
Just tell me which are the shops you are planning to visit ? he said.
Quite a few beginning with the ones in Mylapore, then I am planning to explore some in T.Nagar, I said and rushed out before he asked any more questions.
The first shop I visited turned out to be owned by my friend which came as an unpleasant surprise to me.
Aye Meera, what a pleasant surprise, she greeted me warmly and literally shepherded me to all the three floors of the store. When I looked around I noticed there were just the two of us and found the salesmen welcoming us with a warm Namaste.
See, we have everything here right from childrens’ clothes to mens’ apparel and ofcourse saris suiting every budget. We are offering a good discount as well, she said proudly. You can pick up for your whole family, saves a lot of time in commuting , she suggested.
That’s wonderful, I said smiling weakly as I was not keen on picking up anything from her stock which did not appeal me at all.
Let me see if I have carried my credit card, I said rummaging my overloaded hand bag.
So you have kept your promise , said my husband seeing me return without arming myself with large cloth bags with the shop’s name imprinted on them.
Yes, I meant what I said.
Probably I carried the wrong handbag, because my credit card must have been lying in one of my other handbags, I said with mixed feeling.
I don’t think so, he laughed waving the plastic piece in front of me!
I breathed a sigh of relief as my husband literally saved me from picking up something in order to please my friend !
