Been a while I took digs at the chap on the blog.Here I go without further ado...
Me: The geyser's not working.How did you manage to bathe?
The chap : Oh, that...I have my ways.
He smiles enigmatically and I wonder how he could have managed the feat. Though its not freezing sub-zero temperatures, the water that flows out of the pipe at 6:30AM is CCOOOOOOLLLLDDDD! GRRR..
Me: Like what? You skip showering?
Smiles at me patronizingly, like I am the biggest nit-wit on earth.
The chap : Oh , I use the microwave.
The Chap : I heat the water in microwave.
Now , I am mentally shuffling through my collection of microwavable containers which the chap could possibly have used and come up with nothing that is bigger than the size of a medium-sized bowl.
He finally relents and decides to show me the container her uses to heat the water.
The chap: See, this is the "cup" I use for heating the water.
And he shows me the extra-small mug I use for heating milk, normally. Apparently, he uses 4-5 cups of microwave water and that makes the tap water warm. Of all the other options available to heat water(like a gas stove) trust him to use this one! Why does he use it - because everything else is too much work ! Or maybe milky smelling water makes him feel like Cleopatra.
Needless to say, I fell off my chair laughing.
Husbands are priceless when it comes to household chores, I say.
