Four and counting ....

I am fairly crappy at writing mushy posts..Let me try ,nevertheless.This one's for a special pest that has been bugging me to start blogging again..I met this person approximately 14 years back ..and thought he was a pest even back then ..Strangely,he thought the same about me too.Several nerdy conversations about "The fountain head",unlimited budget Lime mint coolers, swigs of old monk from cheap Styrofoam glasses at the marina beach and colossal phone bills later we decided to get married in a few years if we couldn't find other people to get married to..

Of course, fate had made us get into a filmy pact like that ;-).. We had discovered by that time that most eligible men/women were either married,gay or attached and magnanimously decided to get married to each other.This was a little over 5 years back ...What followed was a "propah" Iyer marriage with amazing "saapad" that was bitched about by random maamis who attended the marriage despite not knowing both sides of the family.Pity,i was so worked up about my change in marital status that i couldnt do justice to it.

Several thousand horrible rasams and insanely watery sambars later,we complete 4 years of marriage tomorrow..It's been a hell-of-a-ride,this marriage business!.I didn't think i was programmed for domesticity and all that jazz,but then sometimes strange things happen..I can't get myself to say that i am blessed to be married to this guy or any such stuff like that .. but am fairly convinced that he's made a difference to my life..A huge difference!..I don't think i know of a more down-to-earth,funny and simple guy..Which is not to say that i don't have crushes on Milind Soman or Abhay Deol or Farhan Akhthar anymore...

G,if you are reading this(i know you will be) .. All i can say is thanks for everything... You've been a fabulous friend ..but, i still refuse to prostrate when the oldies nudge me to fall at your feet and seek your blessings..Despite the fact that every time you drive out a lizard,i tell myself that you are the best husband anyone could possibly have,the prostrating business is simply non-negotiable.And if anyone can brave my pet peeves and still remain sane at the end of it,that person will have to be you !...Here's to more exciting times ahead!

And for all others.. who started reading this unabashedly senti stuff without a clue of what it would be about..Thanks for reading this far..Too bad you had no clue!;-)

:))) that was such a sweet post! Lol at prostrating business. Just how do you manage to evade the elders when they ask you to do that?
A very happy anniversary to you both! Wish you happy times always.

Hey - This is the nicest thing you've said to me in 4 yrs of marriage. And I thought the only quality in me that you were thankful for, was my courage in dealing with lizards!!.

Anyways to commemorate this special moment, i am issuing some coupons which may be redeemed with me for 2 weeks worth of household chores. You may double the worth of your coupons by reconsidering your clause on "prostrating before the husband" - See what good tidings await when one is good to the husband!

Also, i sincerely hope that your return to blogosphere is not just for a brief while, and you continue to entertain your readers (and say nice things abt me) for a long time to come

You have no idea how big a blessing it is to have a person for a life-mate, to whom you can talk as a friend...
