The crazy Sports fan !!

She gets up at the first ring of the alarm. The day begins with the routine kitchen work.

She boils the milk and makes tea.

He gets up and comes to the dining table with the newspaper tucked in his arm. That’s his property. He sits there reading the paper, sipping the tea.

She cuts theΒ vegetables, makes the subzi and the rotis. The lunch is packed for the children and the children even leave for school.

He reads the paper.

She makes the breakfast.

He eats the breakfast and still reads the paper.

She is in a hurry to finish off her work, so that she can login to her FB !!!

She tries to read the Newspaper Magazine !!!

He’s still stuck with the main paper.

She tries to reach for it, but nothing works.

He’s still reading the paper.

She tries to make conversation. Asks if there are any important news, apart from the regular bad news !!!

He asks her to wait till he finishes reading the paper.

She is losing her patience. How long does one person take to read the paper ??

Then finally she quits in her attempt to read the paper and logs into FB.

And the first update she saw, stumped her – “LPG cylinders will be restricted to 6 /year”

OMG !!! She screams in shock.

He came running and saw the update too.

She asks him “Why didn’t you tell me this important news ?”

Even I haven’t read it yet !!!

What were you reading since morning ???

The answer came with a sheepish smile – “The Sports Section”

And suddenly, the power went off at exactly 9am. Now, I know its a 9-6 power shutdown for maintenance reasons. This news would’ve come in yesterday’s newspaper, but what’s the point in checking the paper now !!!

She wishes they put some important news, in the Sports Section !!! That way, he’ll read it first and tell her also about it !!! πŸ˜‰

  1. In the Blogging world I represent that “oppressed class” called Husbands. You are not the only one who is suffering or has suffered in the case of newspapers.

    In India, whenever the newspapers come to grace the households they never come alone. They always carry that deadly virus/ foreign agents called pamphlets and innocent looking leaflets announcing sales for all the unwanted yet “cheap” gifts, sarees, stores / halls, in your “peaceful” neighborhood. What happens after that we all know.

    Finally, I have found the solution to this perennial-vice. I get up early or at least, before my wife. Pick up the morning-paper, go to the dustbin, shake off the newspaper well till all the virus / foreign agents are well-rested in the dustbin and then start my day- hoping for the best !! πŸ˜€
