MONDAY BLUE BUT I AM RED.
Good afternoon friends,
Hope you had a fantastic weekend🍕🏠🎉. I wish I had something more cheerful to share with you. I am angry, yes, very very angry. But instead of shouting at my family, I have decided to chill it out by writing a satirical essay.
How do you greet your loved ones when you wake up in the morning? Good morning, honey, dear and any friendly nickname, right? But when I get up, I am greeted with ‘What’s for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? ” I am tempted to answer, ” Do I look like a restaurant or a hotel that comes with a menu card to you? ” This habit has been passed on from the grandfather ( my father-in-law) to his son ( my husband) to his granddaughter ( my 12 year old kid who’s my grandma in reality).
Now I take great pride in announcing that I have got married into a family whose favorite hobbies are non stop eating and non stop chatting. According to the kind gentlemen in my family, the best daily exercise is the one which is done by bringing your hand very close to your mouth, putting anything edible into it for eating, making your teeth, incisors, molars, or canine, whatever is left in your mouth, to grind the poor thing into a powder that get mixed with your saliva, enters your stomach through the food pipe, and make the stomach do the needful yoga asanas, with the help of the digestive juices.
I don’t mind cooking. It’s my duty. But to keep on demanding things to eat, every couple of hours crosses all the limits. Then, instead of appreciating the hard work, these lovely people quickly find out faults, ” It’s too sour, ” ” It’s too salty, ” ” It’s too bland.” That’s why I am so furious. I wish we were like cows, eat food then chew cuds. I am thinking of coming up with new recipes like grass salad, spinach juice, or the very bitter neem leaves soup. 😂😂😂😂😂. Probably, no one will ask for the next round of meals. It really hurts when you are treated like an unpaid slave.
” Swaraaj ( self-governance) is my birthright and I shall have it, ” said Freedom Fighter Bal Gangadhar Lokmaanya Tilak. Now I have coined a new statement, ” Eating is my birthright and I shall keep chewing.”
Sometimes, I wish humans too came with stickers like ” Beware of this man, he is a womanizer, ” ” Beware of this woman, she’s a great gossip,” “Beware of this man, he asks too many questions, ” and ” Beware of this woman, she talks too much.” I guess being abused after marriage for 14 years has brought the frustration in me. Not every family is like this. But I and my brother have went through hell in our respective disastrous marriages. So I feel that marriages are not always made in heaven, some are made in hell too, but divorces are finalized on the earth. 😂😂😂😂
Women, especially housewives, are humans too. They deserve to take a break. I wish people could realize that just because a woman stays at home to take care of her family, she should not slog the whole day in the kitchen, deciding on what to cook for the fussy eaters in her family. A great family life is all about wholehearted support, encouragement, and appreciating each other, helping each other in whatever ways we can.
