So from one of my earlier posts you know how we have a war situation at home when there’s even a mention of ‘buying a new gadget’.
No I will not get into who wins or loses in that war. In fact after this last dialogue between me and my ‘loving’ husband (yes the quotes are intentional), I think it’s very clear that I don’t even stand a chance to have an opinion on the topic!
A few days back we were enjoying a nice friday evening. I made his favorite fish fry (notice the thoughtful wife here) and he got me my favorite black rum – Old Monk (huh no brownie points for that. We were out of liquor and someone had to get it). The statement – food is the way to a man’s heart, stands 100% true. I think whoever wrote it had my husband in mind! So everything is going great… Nice dinner with a movie, good ambience….until I ask him a question. A question that is otherwise considered to be a very lovey – dovey one. A question that I think has a few standard answers to make the other person happy.
I asked him – How much do you love me? Now before I continue, I would like to clarify that I did it on purpose and just for fun. No emotions attached or anything… (well for those who disagree, sorry,, you have to believe me :P). I often do it to irritate him cos he has only one answer and feels awkward when he has to repeat it the 1000th time. hehehe I love that 🙂 He still answered but I was in a mood to stretch it a lil so I asked him – ”If you had to choose between me and your gadgets what would you choose?”
Now on that, any husband… I mean any any any husband would have said – ”You” RIGHT???? …..WRONG!!!! Actually I didn’t even get a chance to finish my question… It went something like – ”If you had to choose between me and your gaaa”… and he instantly replied -“gadgets”.
I swear I stared at him for a good 5 mins! He was smart enough to sense the silence before the storm so he tried to cover it up with some very filmy dialogues… you don’t even wanna know! sigh!
Picture this – I’m drowning in deep waters with his camera around my neck and he jumps in, swims against the tides, battling the fierce water only to reach out and take the camera away! huh! And I’m like – Dude, what about me???? Gulp gulp blob!
Well, after a lot of stares and frowns we decided that this conversation of ours is best forgotten (As if there was any other option!). Obviously I was pulling his leg and so was he (still keeping my fingers crossed while saying this… just incase you know.. I dont wanna go gulp gulp blob!).
I think its safe to say that girls, or more specifically ME, will never understand a guys attachment to electronics. Their mirror neurons start acting up like crazy the minute they spot anything gadgety. And if you are with them, they’ll turn to you with the most innocent puppy eyes. Such expressions I tell you! But he compensates in his own way so I dont have any complaints as such 🙂 And by that I mean he buys me stuff that I like.
Now we have a new household budget and guess what.. I’m secretly saving to buy him a new camera 🙂 The puppy eyes can really change your mind!
Thats love I guess…my love for him, his love for his gadgets 😛
