The mobile phone rings my favorite tune.
Who else can it be ????
The screen displays “Hubby”.
I pick up the call happily.
Me : Hellllooooo.
H : Hello, is this XXXX ??? (Some lady’s name)
Me : Whaaaat ???? 🙄
H : Yeah, Can I speak with XXXX ???? This is ur friend Uma’s husband speaking.
Me : Hey, Whats gone wrong ???? I am Uma here.
H : ha ha ha…..as realization hits him.
Me : Whats happening ??? (Am totally confused)
H : U smsed me your friend’s number, remember ???
Me : Yeah. Did u call her ???
H : Thats what I tried doing. But instead of selecting her number to call, I called you. 😉 he he he…. 😉 (I can feel the sheepishness in the voice, even across the distance)
Me : Oh God, how do I live with you, funny nut !!!
And I join in the laughter, after all such madness is infectious. 😀 😀 😀
