I never realized I would come across the word ‘match’ in all its varied forms and contexts in the course of one day.
My friend was my first visitor quite early in the day to request me to accompany her to consult an astrologer to have her daughter’s horoscope ‘match’ with that of a few prospective grooms. Soon after we returned home I found my grandson keenly watching the cricket ‘match’ over the TV. Then I found my husband searching for the ‘match’ box to light the gas oven to make the vegetable he had offered to make so magnanimously.
Just then my little granddaughter came running to me with a book in hand to get some help to complete her exercise in ‘match’ the following .
‘The bride was no ‘match’ to the bridegroom either in looks or complexion,’ remarked my husband referring to the reception we had been to the previous day.
‘I don’t think you men are a ‘match’ to us women when it comes to wielding the ladle’, I remarked after noticing my husband dropping it half a dozen times in his attempt to stir the vegetable!
