A Christmas Surprise..

When I logged onto Facebook this morning, there was this notification of a tag that caught my attention. My wife had tagged me in this photo.


I know she has done this to taunt me. She uses Facebook as a weapon sometimes.

 I realize according to this, I am nowhere an ideal good husband.

We are in our fifth year of marriage and I feel I am suffocating Ria with all the family responsibilities. She had quit her job and now managed our 3 year old Ashwin and my old mother.

In the last few months I have been too busy with the business that I was setting up. Hunting the perfect location, searching out patrons…

 She took out Ashwin everyday to the park, my mother for her regular checkups and even puts up with all the childish demands that my mother makes these days without a single word of protest.

Every day I find my office clothes laundered and Ironed, perfectly matched lying on my bed, by the time I finished my bath and breakfast.

It is Christmas Eve today. She loved the Christmas season and her face light ups with pleasure whenever we passed a shop with Christmas decoration or when a carol group came at our door step.

I head to the saloon to clean up. I hated the unclean stubble that has grown on my face. I decide to look my best for her today. 

She laughs in delight and hugs me seeing the change and screams in delight when I give her the Christmas Gift.

Tickets for the  Sonu Nigam Concert, tomorrow for which her friends were going. She was a big fan of Sonu Nigam.

I assure her, I will be the single parent tomorrow. She can enjoy a girls' night out.

This post is a part of the Protest Against Smelly Stubble Activity in association with BlogAdda.
