He is back from office bearing packets.
She opens them eagerly.
She: (forgetting resolutions to bring her weight down) Ahhh pastries!!!!
He: (with shy and modest smile) I got a raise.
She: Oh really!! How nice…. Congrats!
He: (offers her a pastry lovingly) Here take one.
She: Thank you… (chomps contentedly, to hell with expanding waist-lines)
He: Hey guess what??!
She: (Busy making tea) What??
He: There is some good news!
She: (delighted) Have you got a new job?? (Lets imagination run wild and wonders where they’d be staying next: Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad… or even some little known town elsewhere)
She: (brought back to Thiruvananthapuram with a thud) Oh…
He: I just spoke to our neighbor and he said…
She: (interrupting) Has he offered you a job??
He: Aaaargh. It’s not about a new job!
She: Okay okay. You are all excited, so I thought…
He: Guess who is moving in next door??! (waits expectantly for an answer)
She: (for the life of her unable to think who it could be) Who??
He: Girls! Girls from the nearby engineering college!
She: (rolls eyes) What?? OMG Wait till I blog about this. Ha!
He: (guffaws) As if I care!

Ha ha!!! Boys!!!
