Friend recently moved to Chennai. Husband is still posted in some other city.
Tough life alone, managing two boys.
Went to give her some company for lunch.
Happy conversation about places to shop, eat and other stuff.
Me : Have you been to T.Nagar for shopping ????
Friend : Only once. When my husband came home during last weekend, we went to Pothy’s.
Me : So, what did you buy ??? How was the shopping experience at Pothy’s ???
Friend : Sad-faced – Oh, don’t ask. I didn’t even see all the sections properly. I heard they had a separate section for salwar suits, but couldn’t see it at all. Husband was constantly telling me to come out, as the car was not parked in a proper place. Didn’t even buy anything, you know ???
Me : Oh, that’s sad. You should have gone on a weekday, weekends are always crowded.
Friend : Smilingly – Now, I’ve solved the problem of shopping.
Me : How did you do that ??
Friend : See, now I go shopping with my Driver. He doesn’t complain about parking problems at all !!! He stops the car wherever I want and parks and waits for me to finish my shopping. 🙂
Me : 🙄 🙄 🙄
