I needed to get some passport sized photos for some documentation yesterday. The DH has been nagging me (quite a role reversal, here) for the last few days. So last night, I said I’d go get them done. The DH very kindly offered to drive me.
We have a choice of 2 stores where this can be done and both are fairly close. The DH asked me where I’d like to go. I’m going to reproduce the conversation in Hindi and then translate in English for those that don’t understand Hindi
DH: Kaunse dukaan jaana hai Costco ya Walgreen’s?
Me: Patidev, aap jahaan le jaayein, main waheen chali jaaoongi. Main ek pativrata patni hoon. Mera swarg-narak sabhi kuch aapse hai. Aap agar swarg le jaayenge to main swarg jaoongi warna aapke peeche peeche narak tak bhi chali jaaoongi.
DH: Mera jaana zaroori hai kya? Main tumhe akele hi narak bhej deta hoon
Me: (*in my head*) Why am I still with this man?
Now in English:
DH: Which store do you want to go to – Costco or Walgreen’s?
Me: Wherever you take me, I’m your devoted wife. I will follow you to the lap of luxury in heaven or the dungeons of hell
DH: Do I have to go with you? Can I send you to hell by yourself?
Me: Ahhhhhhhh do I need to repeat? Why am I with this man?
