Washing Machine V/s Marriage

22 Dec

The title sounds absurd, doesn’t it? Read on and suggest me a better title if you still think so at the other end of the post.

Over the weekend, our washing machine stopped working. Water was not flowing in to it. We checked and confirmed that water was flowing from the inlet valve but was getting stuck somewhere within the machine. We detached the inlet pipe and cleaned both open ends using an old toothbrush. Dirt particles came out and we thought that was the reason for obstruction. When we attached back the pipe and switched on the machine, water flew in but barely for a minute and then stopped again. I asked Abbas to call the Service Center. He said “Lemme open up the machine and fix it. I’m sure something is stuck and we will be able to fix it.” I kept on saying “No. We shouldn’t do this. What if we do something wrong? It will lead to more problems. Calling the Service Center is the right thing to do.” He was adamant and opened the portion where so many motors, wires and other alien stuff were there. I just moved away and said “I’m not with you in this.” He kept on pestering me to just stay by his side coz he might later forget which wire connected what and which screw had to go where. Though reluctant I stood there watching him un-fix things, grumbling all the time. After a while I got involved and started giving him suggestions (part of wife-profile I guess). Finally he stood still scratching his head totallyΒ confused.Β I asked him to step aside and took charge, cleaned the whole inlet by removing it, and then fixed it all back. He stood jaws dropped staring at me. The machine was fixed baby!!!

While I was preening at my newly discovered in-born talent, Abbas said “You know what Seemu? This situation is very similar to our marriage.” I said “How???” He explained “You were always apprehensive about our marriage. You said ‘No’ right from the beginning. But I was the one who believed that we could hit it off as a couple. I assured you that things will be fine. You finally gave in and ever since, you are the one who has driven the marriage all along. I know that with you by my side, I can take any initiative and be rest assured that you will see me through it. Come what may, you will stand as a rock support by my side”

I was so touched, needless to say….. Although his romantic side surfaces once a year, he does make up for rest of the 364 days with such brilliant pieces πŸ˜€

—————————–

On a different note, we would be travelling tonight. I will try to post during the vacation but I’m not sure if I would be able to. Wish you all happy holidays and a very happy new year in advance. Miss me okay?

    When I came here, the title jumped at me and I had to read it. πŸ™‚ It just sounds like the L&M who is the ‘man handy’. Do read and tell me if the comparison is right. They have a way of making us do the things, but at the end of the way, we don’t mind it if they acknowledge out contribution, right? πŸ˜€
