Wet and empty handed!

Home needed two things for the night –
1. Idli maavu (for dinner and breakfast)
2. Tomatoes (for lunch tomorrow)
We decided to scoot to a shop 10 minutes away and get our supplies. It was drizzling a ‘little’ and we felt it was OK. 30 seconds after we roared off on the bike the drizzle was a steady rain and it was getting worse. We literally rode into a shop just across the road where Becky jumped in to check for the idli maavu and I drove on to a small vegetable shop further down the road. The veg shop unfortunately did not have good tomatoes and I rode back to see Becky standing at the other shop entrance – empty handed; no idli maavu. By this time it was pouring rain and we took the short 45 second trip back home blinded by the rain. Within minutes we were back at home – wet and empty handed. Becky as usual improvised a quick, good alternative dinner and soon we were dry and satisfied.
So was the day wasted? No way!! We loved the rain and getting drenched. Its small instances like this that makes life soooo exciting and at the end of the day we were really happy – happier than if we had just gone to the shop and bought the stuff and come back

  1. Dude, I concur with what the First ‘Anonymous’ stated. You can’t just come back from a long sabbatical and start with ‘Fun @ The Exhibition’ or ‘Burnt Tea’. We would love to know or rather we have the right to know about your wedding and things thereof! So come on now, don’t keep us waiting! 🙂

    God Bless!

  2. well,
    I was delaying this a looong time and this is kinda a test post. I’ll try to fill in as much as possible over the next week or so – so keep your eyes open!
    And I’m still trying to figure out who you are!

  3. Hey Benji,
    Good to hear from you again. But how can you start again without giving some preamble of all that has happened from April till now?!! Or is it here somewhere and I have missed it. Anyway, thank you for this site and may God continue to bless you both as you grow in Him.
