I’m Totally Coconuts About You

, , , , | Romantic | November 2, 2017

(During the early days of my courtship with my husband, we have many long conversations. We often ask each other things about ourselves. During one such talk, I tell him I like flowers, and he asks what kind. I am a nerd, and hence start on my long talk on the different kinds of flowers and their different meanings, as I like all kinds of flowers.)

Me: “Do you know that daisies stand for purity, chrysanthemums stand for fidelity…” *and so on*

Husband: “I will get you a coconut flower.”

Me: “Okay.”

Husband: “Do you know what that stands for?”

(I am stumped.)

Me: “Hmm… I don’t know.”

Husband: “It means I am willing to climb a coconut tree for you.”

The Devil’s Logic

, | Right | December 9, 2011

(I am a customer checking out at a famous Indian supermarket. To make things faster, I am putting the stuff from my cart onto the conveyor belt. Among my purchases is a pack of condoms.)

Customer behind me: “I can’t believe you are buying condoms! Don’t you know that sex is evil? Only the devil does it!”

(I am kind of taken aback, but I reply with an evil twinkle in my eye.)

Me: “Well, if sex is only for the devil and I don’t use condoms, then you’ll be seeing the devil’s kid next year!”

Customer behind me: *crosses himself and stares at me until I leave the store*
