I am J

என்னத்தை சொல்றது?

என் புருஷன் என்னை விட்டுட்டு 'தசாவதாரம்' படம் பார்த்துட்டார். கோவம் கோவமா வருது. குழந்தைக்கு மொட்டை போட பழனிக்கு போன எடத்துல சார் காணாம போனதுக்கு இதுதான் காரணம் போல!

Anyway, I was J not because he went....but because he didnt take me along. Ethics and decorum அதுக்கு இடம் குடுக்கலை. மாமனார், மாமியார், அம்மா, அப்பா, தங்கை அண்ட் பாப்பாவை விட்டுட்டு போக முடியலை.

I tried convincing him (*she devil* tee hee!) out of the plan. He knows very well that I was totally enthu about the plan, but was tied down..... what to do!

Air conditioned travel

Third A/c train compartment - boarded well in advance....Aditi is not feeling all right, she is cranky and keeps crying every time she loses body contact with me...the bedding was not in place; clean sheets had to be brought in; the guy in charge for all that in our compartment was probably new, all of us in our bay had to walk up to the guy to get our stuff....most of the rest were asleep already....Aditi wouldnt let go of me, so I take her also with me to get our new sheets and bedding....come back set our bed and put her to sleep.....she is fast asleep............
A couple of minutes later, someone far*(t)ed in the same bay in the A/c compartment.....!The train journey was as pleasant as it could get.

I will also talk about it

I mean - etiquette.
Somethings have annoyed me and still do. I make a mental note of things that I shouldn't do. I end up only thinking about it. This time I want to write about it. Getting on and off a lift (elevator?).
People waiting in front of a lift, do so, just in front of the door. I am assuming that they want to be the first person to get in, when the door opens. When the door does open, I have seen people get a little irritated if the lift car has passengers in it, waiting to get out. Its a matter of fact thing.
These people want to get in even before those people want to get out....they try all means to do that. Say, if there are five people getting out, they typically file themselves one behind the other. The person who wants to get in, thinks he cant wait till all these get out. Tries to get in after 3 people are out, just in case, the 4th one is slow.....or gives the 5th one in such a 'can-you-not-do-it-faster' or 'move-it' stare. I promise, I've seen all this happen.
Now, dont you judge me by the people I am working with!

End of a ride

"So, what have you named your baby?", she asked me.

I knew it was the last question. They did not have anything more to ask me or even tell me.

I said,"Aditi", and walked out.
