Thisis the Missis

Missis! Isn't that what he calls me? Oh, by the way, I'm the long suffering protagonist of this blog. I finally got the password out of the husband and decided to use this blog to set things right.

But first, hi to all of you. I've read most of the comments and you people sound like a sweet bunch of guys. Just the kind of credulous, trusting simple people who would easily swallow the lies that my adorable but economical-with-the-truth husband dishes out.

I am not the Stalin-cum-Mao Tse Tung that he makes me out to be. But the bits about him being a complete buffoon are quite accurate. And it is not just me who feels that way. I'll give you an example.

The other day, Naren took his mom and aunt to the doctors. On their way back, it started pouring. Naren dropped them in the foyer and went to park the car in the parking lot, which is about 50 feet away.

Naren's mom, who is convinced that this 43 year old 76 kg heavy man will catch a cold if more than 10 raindrops fall on his head, begged him to use the umbrella (there is one in the car) on his way from the parking lot to the building. They took the elevator up.

Five minutes later, Naren walked into the house, drenched as usual.

"Naren! Didn't you use the umbrella?", mom asked.

Naren remarked, sarcastically, that he used the umbrella to walk from the car to the building and since it was the car umbrella, walked back to the car, put the umbrella in and walked back.

And you know what? They believed him. Both his mother and his aunt believed that he walked back with the umbrella, then went back to the car, kept the umbrella inside it and then walked back to the building.

I rest my case.

So the wife doesn't spare the man even his virtual space?! What tragedy! I am fearful of the day my wife starts posting on my blog. All my fans and virtual girlfriends will desert me, I fear!
Anyways, this was certainly an unexpected and very pleasant surprise, Mrs. Shenoy!
Glad to have met you. In the previous post, I had something complimentary to say about you...
:-) ;-)

Never Mind!! said...

Lesson learnt: never disclose to significant other that you have a blog where you write about them :)

Quite funny this one is!

Nice one Naren. You might have fooled most but not Bomkesh Bakshi!

I am sure the Missus would have a lot more to say than a funny post if she read the blog.

Okie Dokie said...

But the fact that there is some bitching about the mother-in-law, certainly makes one think. Is it really the missus?

Awesome!

I agree with OK. I ran this post, and one of your earlier posts through the same textual-analysis engine that is used by high schools in the US to compare writing styles, and catch students that "borrow" writing assignments off the web.

Their verdict? Naren was definitely wearing pink while writing this post. :p

Still very funny though.

Shilpa said...

Hey! I just floated to your space here.

I agree with BPSK. Reading your other posts, it sounds like you are your wife are opposites. However, your writing styles are strikingly similar :-P
