Forgetting a special occasion like a birthday and wedding anniversary was a part of our life. In these 7 years of marriage, I have kept a lot of expectations during special occasions but every time all my expectations are in vain. No matter how much importance I gave to special dates and numbers, my husband, like many others’ does not pay heed to it.
This is our 7th year of marriage, and 2nd marriage anniversary, we are spending in Singapore. Just like any other day, it was a very normal day for me. We were getting ready early in the morning, as our house would undergo a painting job today.
I even thought, why did we select our anniversary date to be ruined in wall painting? Alas! My husband called the authorities and came to know they are not coming today.
With relief in my heart, I was again building a desire that something good is going to happen today. I am an emotional person! Things like cancellation of events (in this case it was house paint) bother me a lot.
I was a little upset that all of us have finished their part of the job early morning, and now they have cancelled the plan.
While I was thinking what to cook for the day, it came to my mind that my husband was not much more responsive towards the special day. Of course, he remembers this time as we were getting calls from parents from the last night, but something was missing.
Around noon, someone knocked at the door. I was pretty surprised that the house painters arrived at last. In my mind, I was happy to guess that the day is going as planned!
I thought my husband would open the door, who is lazily lying on the couch, but he instead asked me to open the door for those standing outside.
I was pretty sure that the painters are standing on the other side, with my favourite shade of paint.
But to my surprise, as I opened the door, I was taken aback!
