So You Wanted Drama

25 Feb

I’ve been assigned guard duty at my cousin’s wedding tomorrow, in case her mother-in-law shows up to stop it. Why me, I ask?

~Me to MM, on chat.

What was that again about Parsis being peaceful people?

    Hopefully it was a peaceful wedding. And if they came, I hope they came with peace and love in their hearts!

    Just ensure that the MIL does not read this blog & you’re good. So is your cousin 🙂

    P.S. I envy you for the laganu bhonu

    Cos you got ballz, lady.

    Who dares to mess with OJ? Step forth and be heard. Fear for your life . Etc.

    Awaiting the next post where the mother-in-law snuck in through the bathroom window and held bride hostage in the loo.

    Or the one where she made it look like her son was the victim of a shotgun wedding.

    @MGM: Drama queen par excellence- I see a great alternate career as a movie script writer:)))))

    Tell us, how did it go?
    Did you heave and ho?
    Parsi or not
    Your cuz has got
    A trumpet, in you, to blow!

    Why, thank you kindly, Dipali.

    OJ, did the evil mother-in-law do away with you?

    dipali: And the bulk? 😦 Now it feels left out.

    sukanya: Me in a pink saree and pearls in all my poised Parsiness pushing out potty-mouthed Pilloo*? (*name changed for alliterative purposes)

    M….: Welcome back! 🙂

    Anjali: Peaceful. Whew.

    Shivani: Oh so good. 5 courses, each one divine. I shovelled away. 😀

    MGM: 🙂 Nought o’ the sort. The only incident we had was the priest’s little grandson tugging at his pyjamas while he married the two.

    Aunty G: It was a cinch
    The nasty old Grinch
    She was a no-show
    ‘Twas all in smooth flow
    We were there for her in a pinch.

    you’re too kind. going by the spread at Parsi weddings, i wouldnt, ever, accept such assignments.

    dipali: You’re telling me. 🙂 I almost started another alliterative trail about postponing my poised Parsiness by peeing in my pink saree and pearls…

    errormsg!: Make no mistake. The assignment was pre-lunch only. Thor himself couldn’t keep me from my lagan nu custard.

Here's a bar of chocolate. Now talk to me. :)
