I had almost forgotten madame's birthday. Point to be noted is almost. Having realized that I still had sufficient time to escape capital punishment, I started thinking of a wonderful gift worth remembering for ages. Point to be noted is that I took quite a lot of effort in thinking. As they say, more than the gift, its the thought process that counts. Apdi thinki thinkiye oru vaaram odi poiruchi.
Suddenly the realization stuck that its just few more days left and I am yet to decide on it, subtle hints like "what are you going to get me for birthday" discounted. Ithuku melayum oru abarimithaamaana gift pathi yosichitruntha yosichitay irukka vendi thaannu, I decided on the rava upma of gifts - Teddy bear. Intha teddy bear giftla oru vasathi enna vendraal, pudikalinu kovathula mela veesi adichaalum valikaathu. Paya pullainga soft toysnu summava senjirukaanga. Adhaan gift decide pannidichay samatha..Inga enga kodumainu paakreengala. Decide pannalum vaanganumla. Ippo apponu again few more days went swaaaahaaa. Kaalangaathaala papera open panna 12 page ad kudukarranungalay, news section adsku nadula enga engannu thedara alavukku publicize panraanaynu NAMBI antha veena pona Snap Dealla order potten. Epdium delay aanalum 2-3 daysla anupiduvomnu sollirunthaanunga. Apdi paathaalum correcta vanthirumnu oru calculationoda placed the order. Needless to say the order didn't come.
First slighta kindala aarambichi, "enna edachum vaanginia illa innum yosikiria"nu start aanathu.."mavanay intha vaatiyum sothapina..nee gaali"nu chellama (!!) kolai merattal vara alavuku valanthuduchu. Armed with the knowledge that I've placed an advanced delivery date with buffer time that could well adjust for schedule over run, en veena pona project plans mathirye, got unduly delayed. The delivery came and slept in a warehouse 15km from her place that remained locked for a week. I begged, shouted, namasakaram pannified, kola merattal vittufied, uhumm..kovama ketathuko kenji ketathuko edhukumay snap deal masiayala. Vendamna order cancel paniko nu coola they told. 24 hoursla naanay flight pudichi ponalay ozhia there was no way I could courier the gift on time. Kudutha buildupku she kept running to the door, each time some courier came to her house. In the mean time she ordered some baby stuff to be delivered to Chennai. All four of them reached on time!! Naan order panna onnay onnu kannay kannu gift never reached!! Seri date of birth thana miss aachu star birthday kulla vanthirumnu saaku solalam paatha, that was already over.
After almost a week after her birthday, one day she casually told that the courier came in that morning and she liked it. Vera vazhi illaingarathu apart, I somehow was reminded of that Goundamani comedy "inimay nee vaysasukku vanthaa enna varaatii enna"!!! Avvvvvvvvvvvv...
