The ”Just Married, Please Excuse” Contest

August 23, 2012 at 11:31 am | Posted in Blogging, Husband, Memories | 12 Comments

~nm pointed me to a contest on Y’s blog where we have to write funny incidents during our married life. The contest has generated a few very funny entries and reminded me of few incidents that happened during early days of my marriage.

So here I go …

If you are a north indian or you are exposed to north indian culture , you must be aware that marriage does mean being sleep deprived and extremely tired apart from all the other things. So most of the wedding ceremonies were over except the much hyped “First Night” that typically happensΒ  the next night after the marriage.Β  And the bride and groom have been awake for almost 36 hours if not more , before the first night.

That “NIGHT” ..I was just waiting to retire in my room , was anxious thanks to the movies , but was sleepy ..just so typical me. And at 10 in the night , I was told to change into a fresh sari and do some make up by my SILs. Little did I know that they were asking me to get ready for “First night” and nor did I know that its going to be so FILMY πŸ˜›Β  Not that I minded filmy style πŸ˜‰Β  but then wearing a sari again at 10 pm with makeup and jewellary ..aaaah.

After some time I was all decked up…taken to my room which was decorated with roses and crysanthem and looked lovely and my tall dark and handsome guy stood there in silk kurta …so sweet ..I thought.Β  Then they clicked a few photos , in which I look almost drunk eyes drooping with sleep.Β  And then they left us there alone πŸ™‚

So whatever happened ..or did not happen that night , my husband did woke me up at 4 am in the morning.Β  Well ..can someone be angry with a loving husband , so soon in married life …I almost felt like shouting , its just 4 am. But when I opened my eyes I also was out of the bed within seconds.

The bedsheet was red …okay not with what comes to your mind was red with the rose petals that were spread on it before we sleep.Β  Uff we cursed ourselves for being so filmy and not clearing the bed before lying down.

But what next ..the newly wedded couple scrubbed the bedsheet together in the bathroom , sneaked from the back door and dried it in the back yard and just kept praying that no one questions πŸ˜›

Romantic ..isn’t it !!


Thats not all ..

After a day or so I was packing my stuff for our honeymoon. My SIL’s 4 year old was tagging along with me since I was married , excited and curious about having a Mami πŸ™‚ That meant cute company and not romantic sneak peeks , coz everytime hubby would sneak in , he was there πŸ™‚

So the plan was that FIL would take us to temple and then will drop us to the station for the honeymoon further. My little companion asks me , “Mami aap ja rahe ho”Β  and I said yes. Then he asks …”kiske saath”. And I told ” Mama aur Nanu ke sath” , meaning husband and FIL. Pat came the reply from him in a full volume …” Arreee , honeymoon teen log thode hi jaate hai”..3 people don’t go for honeymoon :P.

I just looked around wide mouthed and cursed myself for underestimating the general knowledge of the little guy πŸ™‚


Now that I have started writing ..I can think of a few more ..but thats for later .

So whats your story ? πŸ˜‰
