Been There, Done That?
The 2010 edition of my Birthday was widely anticipated, because the 2009 edition had missus gifting me a Bean Bag, that was very cozy and comfortable for watching the IPL matches! So this time, just like how expectations grew wild from the 2009 to 2010 editions of the IPL, my expectations were wild too :) But with just a week to go, work place dropped a bomb-shell by requesting me to spend couple of weeks away from home-town on a deputation. With both of our faces looking like that winking Vodafone Zuzu, I was pulling my bags out of our home.
And the D-Day was one of the uneventful compared to its past editions, but just until then. Around the wake of the afternoon, when I was dozing my way debugging the If's and For's, the surprise came as a small pop-up balloon. Missus dropped in a mail, that totally caught me off guard! I was blinking and smiling my way reading through the mail. It read..
Though miles apart, you stay closer to my heart
Whenever i think of you, I hear the word 'Never Depart'
On this Birthday, my sweet heart
I wish you a wonderful start
We know Life is an Art
And I am sure you have mastered it a Lot
It has always been right when said, women are the best to throw you surprises! In fact, every time I wanted to give a surprise, I would either blabber and break the surprise before hand or would hype it up in such a way that it ends up like 'Oh, is that it'? ;) So, if there's something that I can at least half-neatly pull off, it must be that fitting reply. So after frantic search across Shakespearean Literature, and some contemporary Google crawling, I shot back!
Meters and Miles will never get us Apart
Forever you think of me, you never will hear the word Depart
Since the Day we met at the Mart
We had a wonderful head Start
For the Life we know as Art,
And What better day to remember it, you smart!
This might sound silly, but when it just mattered, this was a revelation and later gave good moments to giggle and ponder, especially since it marked our first attempt to write a (so called) Kavidhai (poetry):)
