Some days back my husband came back from a run, which he probably has once in two months and he tells me with full of excitement, “Oh I have come across this new song called ,”Despasito.” Its really good for running.”
I try to hold my laughter. I wanted to tell him, grandpa but all I told him was, “Yeah, I know that song but it is quite old now.”
My husband gives me a confused look, “Oh ! I thought it was a new one.”
Now I am laughing at his discovery…
Later just a day or two after this incident, I was taking my son back home from grandma’s and grandpa’s place.
At 8.30 p.m., we are stuck in crazy traffic. I was astonished to see so many vehicles on the road.
Then I realised, “Now I get why there is so much traffic on the roads. It was a Saturday!” All the youngsters were out on the roads.
Now who is the grandma? Ha ha ha…..
It had been ages since I had witnessed a Saturday night traffic.
Gone are those days when I was out watching a movie, eating junk food and staying up late on a Saturday night.
But honestly, I like this time of my life when one is not worried what to do on a Saturday night and everything is planned. Like a Saturday night in our house is home cooked food and of course it has to be something tasty and a movie pre-recorded on Tata sky.
Sometimes I wonder what an erratic life I used to live before my son. I cannot recognise my older self. Thus, so many of my old friends cannot recognise my new upgraded version. But personally I like this version of myself as I am a happier and a more secure person today.
I feel chaos was necessary to embrace the peace! 😊
Sharing a recipe which my mother once cooked at her place and to make our Saturday nights more eventful, I seldom cook something like this paneer vegetable wrap.
