She: Can you help me clip my toenails? I’m not able to get them. My back hurts.
I’m at it (not reluctantly, promise!) and halfway through a bulb goes off in my head somewhere.
Me: The parlour lady is coming home today for my facial right? Why don’t you get a pedicure too?
She: You think I need it? Let it be, why the unnecessary expense?
Me: What expense? It is slightly chilly now. Your feet will get moisturised too.
She: Ok, if you say so. Call her and ask her to get the pedicure kit too.
…and this is how, ladies and gentlemen, you make your mother-in-law happy! 🙂 🙂
Nothing much I know, but it is small things like this that gel people and relations. A little consideration is all it takes to help bridge the gap between them.
On a different note, here’s wishing all my friends, readers and well-wishers a happy and safe Diwali and a prosperous New Year! May this festival light and shine your hearts and lives, this year and forever! ☺👌💥💐🎉
