I don't have anything specifically new happening these days, but I still feel like writing. So this'll be one of my rambly updates where I'll go where my mind takes me.

It was the long weekend last weekend in Canada. Monday was Victoria's Day and therefore a holiday. Did I tell you how I was hinting to my husband that we should go for our honeymoon this long weekend (since the last one was so indescribable)? Well, I had been. Infact I told him he could surprise me (All the women out there know what I am talking about when we allow a man to surprise us). Then did I tell you, that he asked me if I'd like to go to the zoo? He did. And no we ended up not going anywhere at all. Infact we were like an old couple, and stayed up late every night watching movies.

On Sunday, after Church, we came home, had chicken curry, and took a nap. I KNOW!!!! Where is the young exciting life I had thought to lead in this new free land?? Anyway, during my nap I had this dream about this dessert we had seen at this little cafe in Greektown. So when we woke up at 6 PM, thats where I demanded to be taken to. Trust me, if you'd seen this dessert, you'd know what I am talking about. Infact I took a pic just for everyone.




Its called a Tongue Depressor. Why in the world would anyone call that a depressor is beyond me. The cafe has this corny little menu, I should have snapped a pic of. This menu has names like "The Julius Ceaser", "A Bird to the Wise", "Stand by your Ham", "Fowl Play", "Yes Sir, Cheese my Baby", and my personal favourite, "Poultrygeist".

On Monday evening to celebrate the end of the holiday, I went to the park. There's one about 2 minutes from my place. Its a dog park, and me being a doggie lover, I go there to pet all the dogs. I know how that sounds. But I love them so much. Dogs are so stupid and brave and loyal and idiotic. Owners come to the park with these complicated toys, and the dogs just run around chasing squirrels and picking up dead pieces of wood to play with! Goes to show how simple is sometimes best. They have the greatest fun running around an empty fountain and jumping over the benches. The only problem is that they also love to drool, so I usually need to wash my jeans after every visit to the park. After observing the dogs and the owners, I realized their primary motivation is food. For the dogs I mean, although if you saw some of the owners, you'd think the same of them. They, the dogs, don't come to everyone in the park. Only to the people who have food. Having observed this, I now go to the park prepared. Before leaving the house, I pick up one of the muffins I've baked, and sort of rub it over my hand and palm, and then I go to the park. Poor dogs keep coming to me and licking my hand, and everyone thinks I am like the Dog Whisperer. Even my husband doesn't know about my dirty little trick. I tell him its because the dogs sense my pure aura. Ofcourse, all they smell is chocolate chips and orange muffin. One of these days, I know he'll figure it out, but till then.............

Who said you need to be completely honest in a marriage about everything? He was wrong. Infact I bet it was a he who said it, because women just know better. For example, every morning, when the alarm goes off, and my husband lovingly touches my feet with his (read: he kicks me) to go shut it off, I tell him, I already went and snoozed it 10 minutes ago and you never heard it......Its been 3 months so far, and needless to say, he's not figured it out yet. Infact thinking about this, brings me to the next interesting topic I could blog about - Lies Women Tell. I'll start my list immediately after I post this entry.

I can hear the dogs barking. So I'll be off now. Besides, I don't want muffin crumbs on the laptop.

Kusum Rohra said...

Superb I will use the snooze trick too if I ever get married that is!! And I am assuming your hubby doens't read your blog!! In that case, why why why are you keeping him away from a few laughs??


I am preparing for my GMAT and I have this whole bloody math phobia!! and look what the word verification gave me "MAYHTS"!!!!!!!!!!!! Is that japanese for maths by any chance?

Fleiger said...

Hmmm... points to remember after I get married:

1. Keep an eye on the sweet-supply in my house if my wife shows any "animal magnetism".
2. Make sure you know what time the alarm is set for and what time is it when it wakes you up.
3. Don't make my wife aware of this, 'cause after all she is entitled to her secrets ;)

sidkc said...

purpleglitter: the snooze trick is my morning life saver!

kusum rohra: are u kidding?? ofcourse he doesn't read it!!! O MY GOD!! i have a math phobia i can totally commiserate in ur grief! infact there is something i saw perfect for us, and if i can find it again, i'll post it. all the best girl!

fleiger: glad i've contributed to some man's learnings :-)))))))) oh and btw, u can never keep a track of what is there in ur house once ur married...ur wife will make sure of it ;-D

sidkc: yeah, its possible...but then imagine...this country has uninterrupted power and water supply, hardly any corruption, no lecherous men offering u lifts, no smelly cabs, and no bad FM early in the morning - with such a lack of inspiration, its no wonder im bitching less and with lesser effect! worry not, i shall find something to get my inspiration back soon enough!
