Come quickly and see how many have given a proof of their love , exclaimed my husband early in the morning.
Love for whom and how have you found out? I said even as I came out of the kitchen surprised at his excitement.
Come soon and see for yourself, he reiterated .
Where are you? I said expecting him to be immersed in reading the day’s newspaper as he usually does first thing in the morning and not finding him there.
Browsing through the net on your system , he said peeping out of my study.
Why this sudden interest in logging on to MY system which is unusual of you, I said still surprised.
Well, it only shows I too am capable of giving you a surprise, he laughed.
O.K. tell me what is this ‘proof ‘you were talking about? I said indifferently.
Read for yourself, he guffawed vacating the chair to make me sit in comfort.
When I scrolled down I could see a number of KNOWN AND UNKNOWN people showering encomiums on their mother in flowery language to demonstrate their love for her as a celebration of MOTHER’S Day .
Oh, I don’t find anything so exciting as you did, I sighed.
You are a wet blanket, he accused.
No, I am not, because I have seen all this kind even before, I said.
You mean expressing their love on FB? He said raising his eyebrow.
Yes, some do so for their spouses in order to greet on their birthdays(read husbands) , some for their children on their birthdays , some for their PETS as well wanting the world to know how much they care , I said .
I wonder how they did express their love before the advent of FB? He said more to himself.
