You know how I keep telling you that once in a while, Bill redeems himself and I feel so proud of him? This morning happened to be one such day. We were at some UK version of Schaumburg (its called N Greenwich) trying to buy a couple of random last minute things that I need to take back to India. We find ourselves in this electronics store called Comet - its looks like Best Buy perhaps a little smaller. So I get my stuff and look around for Bill.
"What are you looking at?"
"Hey, check this out na. This steamer thing - we can make idlis with this"
"Yeah its nice. But you need those depression type thingys to make idlis"
"Hmm...yeah but how difficult is to make that? I am sure some dude in India will have a plastic version to go with this. We can buy this steamer and make idlis"
"You want us to buy this now?"
"No, no I was saying its a nice product. If we ever have anything resembling a house, then we can buy this"
"And this. Look at this crockpot. So cool, na? We can leave that pudina pulao thing on this forever and it will get cooked slowly"
"Is this the food processor that we have? This one looks more powerful"
We have reached the end of the aisle. On one of the aisles on the far side, a bunch of grown men sit around fiddling with game stations. And here, Bill is admiring a Black & Decker food processor.
"I love you"
"What? What's wrong? Is this because you are going to India? Or do you want me to buy something for you now? Holy shit. What am I to do now?"
