Don’t you think my recent book launch was the best among all the earlier events of my book releases? I said still gloating over the day’s events.
What makes you think so? Asked my husband.
Well, for one thing the venue was full with most of our invitees turning up, I said.
That’s true, considering that it was a week day, he agreed.
What else? He said.
There was pindrop silence and everyone appeared to be really interested in listening to what the chief guest has said and the discussion that followed, I said.
Yes, it appeared so, he agreed for the second time which was quite unusual of him.
Then again, excepting for a few, everyone stayed until the end and who ever picked up a copy of the book waited to get my autograph, I said feeling happy at their gesture.
Aye, you have forgotten to observe something , suddenly said my husband even when I was about to continue.
What is it? I said fearing I had missed something very important due to a lapse on my part.
That no one seemed to have missed the absence of someone who was supposed to have had an important role in the event, he reminded .
Ah, Now that you mention, I feel you are right for once about your observation, I conceded.
