Let’s Get MarriedTuesday, May 5, 2009 19:49
You may not agree when I say that my place is a little weird, especially when it comes to weddings. Three years ago, I was just a kid at college who knew nothing about life and now? Everyone around me says it’s time to get married. Like hell, I’ve changed in these three years – I’m still the same confused kid I used to be in college!
Here are three different versions of what I think will happen if I say the most doomed sentence, ‘Let us get married’ to someone I love!
Version 1: Somewhere far away!
Me: Let’s get married baby!
She: What? You sure you want to do this? I don’t think I’m ready for it… Actually, I like the idea. (Smiles)
Me: Well, let’s give it a shot then. We’ve been going around for 3 years now it’s time we did something different (Winks)
She: Let’s give it a shot. (Kisses)
Version 2: Somewhere near my place!
Me: Let’s get married dear!
She: What? Are you crazy? Do you think that’s an easy thing to do? Oh my God!
Me: Hold on! Why are you panicking?
She: Why shouldn’t I? I don’t know how I’m going to talk to my parents? I don’t know how my relatives will react to our love? I don’t know what my friends will think about us getting married? Lord! I don’t think I can face so many people.
Me: Well, first tell me what YOU think about us getting married…
She: How does that matter? God! My parents, my brother, my cousins, my relatives, my friends… Marriage… May be you should talk to them… No! I’d rather wait until they talk about my marriage… I can’t do this! (Tears)
Me: Wait? Now who’s crazy here?
She: I don’t know. (Looks everywhere and finally at her watch) It’s getting late and I have to go home, else my parents will start worrying about me. (She walks away)
Version 3: In our Movies!
Me: Let’s get married
She: Yes (And the villain appears) or No (And the alcohol appears)
Me: It’s a screw up anyway! Should I be happy for not having to fight a villain or worry about overcoming the biggest temptation in life? (Smiles. Let’s have a song sequence anyway!)
So, what do I do?
The thing that everyone around here is famous for – Procrastinate! Take things as they come and blame it on ‘destiny/fate’
Me: Maybe we were never meant to be! (Boy! What a lame excuse…)
She: I’m glad you understood it! I’m sorry it had to be this way (Oh! Saves all the trouble)
And, life goes on…
