Diwali Smiles

​She: Can you help me clip my toenails?  I’m not able to get them. My back hurts.

Me: Sure.

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! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

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! ☺👌💥💐🎉
