Honeymoon Discounts

I absolutely adore my Aunt. Moms sister to be precise. I fondly call her "Maushi" (aunt in marathi) and since I was born she is been pampering me! Now, the only problem is, she still thinks I am about 5 years old. Or rather, sometimes she pretends so, which makes me drop my gaurd like a kid ready to be pampered, and then she shoots out some of the best one liners. And usually all talk between us is casual, you know the ones where you kinda sit with your best buddy and mutter things at random which might make a third party wonder what the hell are they talking? So when I talk to her on the phone, the conversation is hilarious.

Maushi: Do you have a bath everyday?
Me: Nah, once a week.
Maushi: Ewwww... Friday to Friday?
Me: Yeah, Jooma to Jooma.
Maushi: How do any girls sit next to you?
Me: They dont, unless its Friday.
Maushi: At this rate, u'll never get married.
Me: -silence-
Maushi: No. Tell me, do you have someone there, or I'll start searching someone here for you!
Me: Oh, and what kinda girl will you search?
Maushi: Leave that to me. You just come to India and get married.
Me: Uh. I dont even know the girl and marry?
Maushi: Yeah, quick wedding. Come for 2 weeks, one day engagement, one day wedding. Then we'll go to Kulu Manali for honeymoon!
Me: We?????
Maushi: Yeah. Why? They have these deals. One couple pays and other gets in free. Buy one, get one free. So me and your uncle will come along. And if we take your Mom n Dad along, Mama and Mami will also get to come along. So all of us can go.
Me: Uh... ok.
Maushi: So? I start looking?
Me: I am too shocked. I mean, if you have my honeymoon all chalked out with discounted fares, I am sure you have already started looking.
Maushi: No, not me. You know I am kidding. But lets discuss this. Your uncle, the other day he was telling me he saw this really beautiful girl and thought she would be ideal for you. He should have asked....
Me: One sec. What was Uncle doing looking at other girls?
Maushi: Good point. I didnt think of that. Ok. Can I call you later?
Me: Sureeeeeeee..... by the way, go easy on him.

I love my Uncle. When I was a kid I used to traumatize my Mom (she says I still do, but we'll leave that for another day). So when she used to run behind me with a baton in her hand, my Uncle used to always jump in and save me! The man always saves the day! Even till today.

dhammal hai ekdum... ask her if she can arrange marriages for bird, anna, pals and baangdu too all at the same time... then you may get a higher discount for this honeymoon thingy :)

:lol: Laughed my head off; so much so that my sis just asked me if everything's ok.
All set for that buy-one-get-one-free honeymoon? Who knows: maybe they give just a single room for the both of you... the two couples, I mean. That'd be fun! ;)

#Mahi: Just like that... I like to see u worry! :P

#Iyer: Pals, baangdu, bird, anna all marry their respective better halves at the same time as my wedding... dude.... u want my to be wife to run away b4 the saat pheras.
But I like that discount idea... lemme put it forward to Maushi.

#Couchie: Never take that chance... what if your wife realizes she likes the woman more? No same room!

#Brad: I dun wanna imagine it!

#Idea: Yeah, she is sooper... I agree! U wanna try that discount? See if it really works.

#Demi: Only Pals, Baangd, Bird and Anna will fall for this... and perhaps get married to each other!

APoo:That will be a disaster,,to mankind and BIRDKIND..and if all get married on the same day ,,, It will be too easy to keep track of anniversarry dates..No NO NO ...separate shaadi plzzz :P

Apoo: IPC allows a man to marry only one woman. And I don't think that honeymoon discount includes a 'pay for one wives-the rest are free' deal!!!

#Smithy: I have sinned in the past. Gimme another try. I will make this up to you....

BIRD, someone here is teaching me IPC. Can you let them know about my knowledge in that feild.

#KJ: I know. Maushis are the best arent they? *Hugs*

#Mahi: No. No. No. I cant do this to Smithy twice.... the last time... you hot legs... they made me go astray.... but no more.
