Shaadi ke Laddu

Why do Delhites fall in love during the summers??? Because their hearts melt away in the freaking heat!!! It’s 45 degrees celsius .. and I can feel myself melting away slowly like the evil witch in the Wizard of Oz (try and resist from making a comment that I look like the evil witch as well…….please…)

Ok now shift focus from the Delhi heat to the giggly girl gang….my group of 6 eternally single school friends……

I had this post ready to be put up any minute….but the theorist (a GGG member) broke the news to the world (errr…..the world being the massive 20 people who read this blog….10 of who are arm twisted into it) .... that it’s 1 down….. 5 to go…. Yup, the inevitable has happened. The first of the giggly girls was struck by the summer…her heart melted….she fell in love…and yesterday broke the news that she’s all set to tie the knot…

So Al dude, as the theorist calls him ……though I would’ve liked to call him the man from Far Far Away (Shrek 3 hangover!!!) had I put up the post first (hmph!) romantically proposed to Al Giggly (also christened by theorist in her post) and despite our constant training of “none of us can get married else the rest of us are in deep shit”….love got the better of her and she agreed!

So the phone calls poured in during peak office hours, excitement, drama, weight loss program discussions and once we’d closed topics like “hey do you have anything I can fit into for the wedding??”……. it hit us! Our families are going to be wild!

Lovely cousin was in town for the last couple of days. So she took it upon herself to break the news to my mom…..albeit without me asking her to do so!!! Hmph! So when I got home and tenderly approached the topic, what I got was “That’s excellent. The right thing to do. I’m glad she’s found someone. When will you settle down? Meet some nice boys? Before you know it, the entire GGG will be engaged, fats will be engaged, beanpole will be engaged…..” . Ok so I rolled on the floor laughing at the last 2 bits but when I recovered I reached out to my phone and realized the others had been smart and not told their families. LC, you’re in for a lot of trouble!!

Yes, this post will sound like another one of those wedding bells and wedding blues posts I keep putting up but this one had totally to be posted……to let Al dude know that the giggly girl gang truly welcomes the newest member and allows him to sweep our friend off her feet! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!! :) :)

(The rate at which it’s going, I should be changing the name of this blog from "keep talking" to “keep getting married”!)

Tku for advertising my blog !!

Cuckoo said...

Good Luck to your friend! But more so to you... Ahem! (in my best mom inspired tone) "So, don't you think marriage is a good idea? What are you looking for in a man? All these boys you call your friends, aren't you interested in even one of 'em?" (I fainted when my mom said the last one.. imagine marrying one of your male friends - as in the ones you can't think of marrying ever!)

Zee said...

Candid Confessions said...

Marriage to me sounds scary at this stage! Sex and the city has had its effect on me in convincin me that being single is cool! nevertheless - Congrats - the ones who are tyin the knot!

Princess Banter said...

Hah -- I think that summer love is a universal thing that I've learned to despise (perhaps out of spite and envy hahaha!). Somehow though, it gives off the impression of a highly temporary affair :) So if I were you, I'd be wary of falling in love during the summer ;)

Zee said...

dream catcher....yup...the list goes on and on and on...

prasoon....yes sir! will pass on all the congratulations to them!

beanpole....i know u're just getting back for me laughing my butt off at the thought that u would tie the knot one day!!!

cm-chap....thanks....i believe u more than beanpole

candid....when one is ready they take the plunge! this couple is so perfect, u wudn't know why they would not....
