How are you planning to celebrate your Blog’s sixth anniversary ? Asked my husband on the birthday eve.
I noticed the sarcasm in his query because he was always very critical of Pet owners having birthday bashes for their pets. Some went to the extent of engaging eventmanagers and inviting a host of people on the occasion.
What’s wrong in celebrating my Blog’s birthday? I am sure it warrants a celebration , especially when it has crossed 66ooo hits for which I must thank my viewers, I reasoned.
Well, go ahead but make it a very memorable event, he encouraged.
Why don’t you suggest something, I prompted.
Let’s throw a party at My favourite restaurant , he said.
And invite whom ? As far as I know just a handful of my viewers live in our city, I said.
Don’t you think that’s a blessing, he said.
In a way yes, I agreed.
Even among the few tell me how many post their comments on your posts? He wanted to know.
Hardly a couple, I said mentioning their names .
That’s even better. You can invite them for dinner to mark the event, he said sounding very enthusiastic.
Let me think but there is a hitch, I said disappointed.
What is it ?he said all his enthusiasm disappearing.
You know, unfortunately your ‘ favourite eating place’ doesn’t happen to be their favourite one, and you refuse to eat in any other hotel, I lamented.
Aye, I didn’t think of that. Then why don’t you suggest any other way of celebrating the event, he said.
Wait,he added suddenly before I could reply. I just remembered the couple of names you mentioned have gone on a holiday and won’t be returning in time for your Blog’s birthday, he said smiling.
I thought the Problem was solved, but did not feel happy with his announcement and said ‘We seem to be back where we started’.
Not to worry, all the more reason for us to dine at MY usual place, He said smiling.
Oh, not the same place again !I said to myself.
