So where were we the last time we talked about this? Right HERE.
Well, so you turn 27 which means that it has been two years now, since they’ve been trying to fix you up with your life partner. You’d be lucky, if some profiles would have come your way.
If you are a guy, you’d meet the mom-approved-profile-girls (one at a time, that is) at a coffee shop in the evening or at a restaurant (she’s allowed for lunch only!). You would consider each of these proposal meets as a date and keep a mental count of it. 😉
If you are a girl, you would love to reject a few profiles by finding faults in the guy. You always wanted to find fault in guys, admit it! 😉
If you are a guy, your mom tells you to stay at home to celebrate your 27th birthday with an emotional “Who knows about next time? You could be celebrating it with your spouse! You can celebrate with your friends tomorrow in daytime!” You tell the same to your friends by calling them up and you get labeled as “Mommy’s boy!”
If you are a girl, your mom makes your dad to apply the same logic. You tell the same to your friends by sending them text messages (if there are still a few free msgs left, else missed calls) and you end up labeled as “Daddy’s girl!”
After your birthday cake is cut and neatly eaten, all of you retire to your bedrooms.
Your mom wouldn’t get sound sleep for sure. She’d wake your dad up from his snoring slumber with a “Do you even care? Look at how peacefully you are sleeping, as if everything is alright!!!”
“I’m sorry, I fell asleep at night when normally everyone tends to sleep” he’d reply sarcastically like a married man does.
“It’s ok. Now listen to me!” she would make her move, either not sensing sarcasm or simply choosing to ignore it.
“Do you know your son/daughter turned 27 yrs old today?” she’d ask a vague invalid question (as per your dad).
He’d interrupt as usual like men do with a “Don’t I know what I did 28 yrs ago? I’m still paying for it!” like a cool cheeky guy.
“You and your jokes…Ha Ha…happy? Now listen to me, seriously!” she’d sit up.
“Ok I’m all ears…what is it?” he would come to his marital senses, in the hope of not having to eat the next morning’s breakfast outside.
“Good, go get your laptop. You need to post the Matrimonial profile right now!!” she’d say switching the bedroom lights on.
“Can’t we do it first thing in the morning?” he’d definitely try to win a lost battle, for that one last time, but then seeing her anger-laced-eyes pop out, he’d quickly get up and boot his laptop.
You get up in the morning, thinking it’s a new day in this new year of yours and wonder what’s special for breakfast. And when you see your mom smiling big time at you as you approach the dining table, you don’t tend to sense anything spooky! That’s when life treats you to a freaking surprise! 😀
You’d get the biggest gift for your birthday, a very much unexpected one…a shocker, so to say.
She proudly tells you about your newly created Matrimonial profile stressing on the fact that it was dad who actually created it. Such a safe ploy, since he isn’t around, in case you decide to blast like a bomb! You end up not even realizing what you are having at breakfast.
When you meet your friends, they’d enquire about the party at home the previous night. You’d brush it with an “It was just a quiet family get together. We just cut the cake and ate it at midnight. My parents gifted me new watch, maybe to remind me of the times ahead.”
“Why what happened? Why are you talking like a failed poet?” one of them would sense the look on your face and ask you this question.
Intuitively or not, you’d tell them about how your life changed overnight, that you now have one more online profile along with the FACEBOOK, LINKEDIN and ZURKER ones you proudly possess. You’d be so secretive that they’d probe you further with a “What?! Tell us exactly what happened!!!” sporting a concerned look on their faces.
Finally you succumb, letting them know that you are now proudly on display for receiving matrimonial alliances on one of the prime matrimonial sites. You see the expression change on their faces, a few of them holding on to their mouths to suppress laughter while the shameless rest Laugh Out Loud as they sway in random directions.
“The fun has begun, we’ll see that you are taken (in) the right way” they declare in unison.
All you do is stand in the corner smiling sheepishly…not knowing exactly, what you have to do.
More on this, next time. 😀
PS: Based on what I’m seeing my ‘eligible’ friends experience over the last 3 years. It’s fun to be a friend of someone who has a matrimonial profile, especially if you don’t have one! 😉
