And I love this family too!!

Returning from India. Together with father in law and mother in law. Reached Dubai. Sitting in Business Lounge. Watching the two in laws argue.

I got myself a glass of wine. My MIL immediately jumped on me – Did you not have one in the plane? I confirmed that and reminded her that I had one before getting on the plane too πŸ™‚

Then my FIL joined in complaining that MIL did not allow him to drink a glass of white wine in the plane. MIL is claiming that she stopped him from drinking the second glass. FIL is insisting that he did not have any. MIL is pointing out that she saw the lady come and pour. FIL is retorting that initially she put an empty glass down πŸ™‚

All this, without Sharmila being anywhere near to join in the fray. This is going to be an awesome summer for me!!!

    Rajib we had been FB friends for over a year or two but I never knew that you were SIL of Ghosh Kaku & Kakima. We had been neighbors since 1970s. Your BIL & your Better Half had been my childhood friend. You can ask Boni whether she remembers anybody called Babua?

    Look at the role played by the apparently innocent bystander ,SIL? He seems to me like the mythical Sage Narada (Narad Muni) ,who enjoyed these spats while his mere presence started it ! I can hear from this distance ” Narad Narad lag lag lag” with a twinkle in his eye and every bit of malicious intent in his heart!! Oh! Poor souls!
