A tale of two tears..


Scene 1:

Sunday 21st August 2005, morning 12:00 AM. Sri surprised me with a cake, candles, banners and a balloon for my birthday. He was doing suspicious stuff all evening long, but I gave him space as I didn't want to spoil it ;-) Well, that's not the point of the story. Its just that when he sang happy birthday, I was so overwhelmed that tears just flooded my eyes. It was a mingling of happiness and sadness. Happy that he had done all that and sad that we are two people on the other side of the world celebrating it all alone, together, but alone...

Scene 2:

Tuesday 23rd August 2005, evening 4:30 PM. Just went to the apartment mail box place, to collect our mails. One of the mails was a package from mom, dad and Darsh. They had told me on my birthday that they had sent something by courier, but didn't tell me what. Yet, on opening the package, again, tears started forming in my eyes. Ran home and had a good cry. Precisely another situation where happiness and sadness mingled. Happy that they had managed to send a gift across two oceans and sad that they didn't manage to send themselves or pull me there :( Sri consoled me and later teased me saying "You are crying only because you think that the ear rings they sent are really small". That earned him a teary grin and a playful punch :)

You lucky girl. I wish I get a romantic hubby too!!!

Does your mom really read this blog???? I can't ever imagine my mom reading mine :o


Deeps retorted...

Hi Vids, looks like you are back from your vacation :)

Yeah my mom does read this blog. Not only my mom, my dad and my brother, my in-laws and my hubby!!! Sometimes I wonder if I made a mistake giving the bog address to everybody, but other times I like the fact that they are reading what I go through, happiness or sadness. But, yeah, sometimes I really have to think about what I write ;-) :-D
