Wife wins. Again.

One of the Ouchmytoe.com readers mailed this short piece and asked me to upload it on the blog. Not willing to disappoint her, here goes – A married man left from work early one Friday afternoon. Instead of going home, however, he squandered the weekend (and his salary) partying with the boys.When he finally returned …

Much married, much harried

I can now say that I am a much married man. I say ‘much married` because we crossed our second wedding anniversary on 8th September. Despite the body and mind willing (actually, more of the body) I haven`t married many times.  Have you notices that the word “Harried” rhymes with the word “Married”? Now you …

I love you

Gone are the days when my “I love you” would evoke an echo from my wife. I say echo because she would give me that romantic look and say “I love you.” It is a totally unrelated thing that as an afterthought, she would add “too”…meaning “I love you too”. Now, that we have been …

When it rains

Last night, it rained. This phenomenon doesn`t happen often in Chennai but when it does, it rains cats and dogs. In fact, today morning I spent half an hour removing cats and dogs from the clothes we had left outside for drying. During the exercise I also observed that wet clothes are a lot heavier. …

Did you Orkut today?

I wonder if everybody knows about Orkut. I am told that it is the brain child of Orkut Büyükkökten – a Google employee. Talking of Google…did you know that Amit Agarwal who runs http://labnol.blogspot.com/ has named his son “Google”? Why? Take a wild guess. Getting back to Orkut – here are some of the silly …

BlogCamp vs Marriage

Three months back I had decided to be in Madurai for a wedding on Sep 9 & 10. But on 6th I decided to drop the Madurai trip and attend the BlogCamp instead. After spending two days at the BlogCamp, I have realized that very little differentiates BlogCamp from a marriage. Goodies for visitors: Had …
