One month. All it took for him to know that this was the woman he wanted to marry and have children with.
One year. Time taken by said man to obsess over kitchen appliances for the new kitchen I am almost giving up on. Who will win? Miele? Siemens? And who will give a shit by the time the verdict is out?
Five years. Time taken by aforementioned man to decide whether the curtains his wife has been dead certain about for five frikking years are just right for the living room.
This can only mean two things.
1. First decision taken in haste and taken while horizontal with hormones raging has been a cause of immeasurable regret. This manifests itself in odd ways. For example, ambivalence towards linen curtains and an obsessive affinity for overpriced Miele. And an inability to make a decision about either.
2. Democratic marriages are shit.
Happy Onam, dear readers!
