How did you like shopping for Deepavali this time? I asked my husband.
Absolutely bland, no fun at all, he chuckled.
Why do you say so? Is it because we shopped at boutiques I said.
Well yes. No crowds for one thing, no arguments between the spouses, he laughed.
Arguments regarding what? I said.
Well, for instance about the choice or the price, he smirked.
You mean ladies decided all by themselves about both, I said.
Yes, I noticed the spouses standing helplessly, probably waiting to be consulted, he mocked.
That shows ladies today are capable of deciding what exactly they want, I affirmed.
Then why make the poor husbands tag along? He said full of sympathy.
Unless what? I asked.
Probably for two reasons- they may not know how to drive and also not have a credit card, he quipped!
