2008. 19 August.

The Church.

The Prayers

The Movie.

The Dinner.

It’s been one year. It’s been a great year.

PS : I am talking about my marriage :).

And we walked into The Leela for dinner. Armed with three credit cards (what if the bill goes above my credit limit?,) and change to tip the valet; we knew that we are going to have a great time.

The Citrus Restaurant was not as great looking as the Library Bar. But it was buzzing with people. And all I wanted was some peaceful time with my wife, and celebrate our anniversary.

A couple was having dinner right next to our table. After half hour the waiter comes to them and says

“Happy Bday Ma’am”. Another ones comes with a cake and starts singing.

“What?” exclaimed my wife?

“It’s our anniversary and we don’t get any????” Said my wife. “Didn’t you tell them it’s our anniversary when you made the reservations???”

“Well I err, uh? Yeah I did” I said.

“Now that couple gets a free Chocolate Mousse and we get nothing but a huge bill”. She continued.

“Hell! May be we will wait a while longer?” I said.

“I lost my appetite” said my wife.

After dinner the waiter made our table for dessert.

“But we did not order any?” I said.

“Happy Anniversary” said two waiters in chorus.

We got our cake.

PS : The cake was delicious, I am planning to make reservations for my wife’s birthday as well.
