It is a lazy Sunday noon and she is browsing through the channels on TV. She soon finds something interesting and starts watching it .
He comes by and sees his wife busy staring at the idiot box and says “Am going out to finish some errands. See you in a while.”
She mumbles a soft “Okay dear, Bye, Drive safe” and continues to do what she was doing.
After about 15 minutes, she switches off the TV, gets up and ties up her hair into a ponytail.
The laundry bags are full, she carries them out to the washing machines, loads and let that run.
She collects the filled up trash bags from the kitchen and then the bathroom, walks out to the main trash area and disposes them.
The sink in the kitchen is half full with dirty dishes, she clears it into the dishwasher. A bunch of vessels are greasy and she patiently scrubs and rinses them to look shiny again.
She remembers there was a raw green mango in the fridge and prepares a spicy chutney out of it. She is happy with the result and decides to pack it for their lunch next day with some Idlis.
‘The laundry must be done’, she thinks and goes out to collect it. On the way she notices that the shoe rack is untidy. All that is set right in a few minutes.
She comes back with fresh smelling clean laundry and carefully folds the big load of clothes one by one. Shirts, trousers, skirts, tops , undies and socks all go to their respective shelves in the cupboard.
The plants in the patio look thirsty and she lovingly pours some water for them to liven up again.
By now, she feels thirsty herself and makes two cups of tea with cardamom and ginger. Just the way her husband likes it. She keeps one aside for him and slowly sips hers.
She casually picks up the remote and rests her tired back on the couch and browses through the TV channels.
She soon finds something interesting and starts watching it .
He comes in and sees his wife busy staring at the idiot box and says “You sit in front of the TV all day. Why not get up and do something?”
She throws a puzzled look at him .. “Huh?!!!!!!!!”
Yes, that’s another example of how my work goes royally unnoticed every single time. I just sit and watch TV all day, you see. 😛
