See you tomorrow!

Why I am looking forward to tomorrow:

  • I will have reason to make masala chai every day and great company to enjoy it with.

  • I will check out some of the touristy places in Singapore that I haven't been to yet, such as the Singapore Discovery Centre and the Asian Civilisations Museum.

  • I will play proper Scrabble. Viv is hopeless because he makes hopeless words like 'Flexthiz' and 'Bi'.

  • Group Sudoku yeaaaahhhhhh! :D

  • I won't come back to an empty house after work.

  • I will finally have a reason to call my home telephone number.

  • Viv will be home a little earlier than his usual "I was debugging, you see, and I found this BEEG BUGG!" homecoming hours. (Dude, you put the bug in the program yourself, and then you debug it and then you expect me to be impressed? Sheesh.)

  • I will be able to make full use of the Great Singapore Sale.

  • I will have a bucketload of Kurkure. And I will take some to work. (My colleagues love it too! They call it 'Indian Twisties'. LOL!)

  • I will have the DVDs of my favourite new Hindi movies, which are not yet in my collection.

  • I will have yummy rasam.

  • I won't have to sit through Viv's cricket matches by myself. I will have company to shake my head at and say, "How do these guys play under the blazing sun all day long??"

  • I will have one guy who wholeheartedly agrees with me that Viv is a dhakkan.
Yup, the in-laws land tomorrow morning! :)

Have you ever wondered what happens to Viv's BEEG BUGG! when his parents are around? Hmmm... Interesting implications ;)

Clueless said...

Hey, you can still play Scrabble with me when the 'rents are not around! I'm definitely better than Viv (at not making nonsense words, that is)!

disha said...

Apropos nothing, the opposite of in-laws must be outlaws?

Sayesha said...

Arun said...

LOL! Perhaps some kinds of minds think alike (and I haven't gotten that far in the archives :) )

Anyway, contemplating the "in-law" relationship, the English word emphasizes the legal nature of the relationship. I think instead of e.g., "daughter-in-law" it should be "daughter-by-choice" since somebody's choice made the relationship possible.

Bivas said...

cool..hv fun...
Btw the Asian Civilizations Museum is pretty interesting...we got to visit it purely by accident during our vacation last Dec., when we were caught in the unexpected rain while passing by...but a treat nevertheless!

Porkodi (பொற்கொடி) said...

omg! that sounds so much fun!! and a microwaved baingan bharta below??? :O i hate bharta for that smoked brinjal smell!! gotta try this one! :D

Padma said...

I like the word 'daughter by choice'. The word in-law only denotes a superficial relationship.

#Arun,
Wow, that's interesting. :) Though you should further clarify by saying 'daughter-by-my-son's-and-not-my-choice'? :P :P :P

#Bivas,
Awesome! That decides it, I'm totally going. :)
