A new website assignment has been keeping me on my toes at office. (www.gulftoday.ae)
Had a quick breakfast and rushed towards workplace. When I stepped on the road, realized I had forgotten my mobile. Swiftly turned back two steps, when I collided with a man. Thank God not a woman, who knows I would have got a slap.
Before I could say “sorry,” that guy said “sorryyy.” There are still some innocent souls in this world.
“Forget mobile. Go to office,” suggested my mind.
Did so. Returned after three hours. There were three miscalls. Who else but wife!
“The guy who was lying in coma passed away,” she said.
“You always have to give me bad news or what?” I yelled.
“I will give you good news. My mom will stay with us for three days.”
I cut the phone instantly.
Which husband ever found mother-in-law visit a cause for great celebration?
