Now that’s one smart hubby

MK on why he eats out when his wife is not at home: “It’s not that I don’t know cooking, at least the basic stuff. Don’t forget that I spent four years on my own as an engineering student in Bangalore. But when my wife goes out, I don’t make the mistake of going anywhere near the kitchen. You see boss, if you cook once, they will expect you to do it even when they are at home!”

Wife (serving poha to husband): What will you have with this, the aam ka achaar prepared by your mom or the new pudhina chutney that I made yesterday?
Husband: A little bit of both, dear…
Husband (To himself): A smart husband knows how to keep both his wife and her mother-in-law happy

Waiting and waiting

leave a comment »

Mrs Ghosh, 67, is garrulous but friendly and helpful and hence has a large circle of friends.
Her husband, 75, is the opposite, a man of very few words, reserved to the point of being unsocial, and only seen in public going to and from the vegetable seller. He is the antithesis of your typical, chatterboxer Bong male.
Here’s a conversation between the two:
Mrs Ghosh: I have read somewhere – and my friends also tell me – that most men regret getting married. What do you have to say?
Mr Ghosh: (Long silence).
Mrs Ghosh: I am waiting for your answer.
Mr Ghosh: (Very long silence).
Footnote:
Mrs Ghosh: Six months later I am still waiting for his answer.

Headline: Michelle Obama launches task force against childhood obesity

Scene in a marriage: Sharing responsibilities

leave a comment »

Hubby: While you had gone out, it took me only two minutes to tidy up the living room. Why can’t you also keep the house spick and span?
Wifey: Oh that… I had deliberately left things a little messed up. If I clean up everything, what will you do?

Scene in a marriage – 4

leave a comment »

The husband, 73, drove his wife, 68, to the post office. As he got off from the driver’s seat, she told him, “I don’t have any work here, so I shall remain seated in the car.”
“No, no, you also come in!” shot back the husband.
The wife hurriedly got out and in the confusion, the two locked all the doors and windows, forgetting the car key inside.
When they realised their mistake, the wife took out the home keys from her purse and told her husband, “Here, go home and get the duplicate key of the car.”
“What duplicate key?” replied the husband. “I lost it years ago!”
