Work from Home a new funda in IT – now that my hubby has this work from home thingy for 2 days in a week. I want to utilize this to full extent ;) ….. (Wait a minute before you pervert minded people jump to some conclusions….) to help me in with house work.
Mind you – My hubby is too good - otherwise also he helps me by :
- eating what I cook
- listening to what I talk and
- letting me win every (almost every) argument –
As the saying goes “I don’t like to win every argument – I let other loose some ;)”
Before these work from home days, as soon as he used to offer me help in cooking - I used to tell him “NO – Please be out of kitchen…. (I have my own reasons for the same – will write another blog for that) “. But now looking at him sitting and watching TV/Movies I got bugged the other day and gathered courage to invite him to kitchen….
Me – Hey enough of the movies, do you by any chance know how to cut vegetables.
He – Oh ya I used to cut in “Hungary” (yeah he has traveled places) – but I need that cutting board and all that... …….blah blah
Me – (throwing the knife) Here’s the knife - start cutting... I don’t want any reasons...
Why should I suffer being in the kitchen (I hate cooking and being in the kitchen) – while he enjoys the movie/games!!! Seeing my mood he also started doing something with the knife and vegetables…
Half bending over the kitchen platform he was trying to do what was told…. After about half an hour …
He - OK I AM DONE…
Throwing the knife the way I had thrown sometime back - He started to move out of the kitchen!! I had seen the neat work he has done with vegetables and was motivated to give him some more things to try…
Me – Hey wait a min – where are you off too… banayega kaun??
He was fully charged to help me today… or to show off that he too can cook. He took out the biggest vessel to cook the veg (for two people)…
Ok fine I can guide him little… guided him to size of kadai required to cook for 2 people..
He knew the 1st thing to be put in the kadai was “oil” -- This motivated me further… Great!!
The next thing he did was – licked his index finger and smashed the saliva into the oil.
Me - YUCK- what’s this.
He – How else will you check the oil is heated?
Genuine question by the 1st timer in the kitchen
I wanted to kick him out of the kitchen – but no, he won’t buzz… so I guided him further to put things one by one for preparing the veg.
As if I know what’s to be put next … he he… I have a simple funda of cooking
My funda of cooking “Cooking - huh - it’s easy - just open the masala dabba and put what all u feel like -- on that day.”
So finally we were done with cooking and finally it was time to eat the cooked stuff… of course it was my turn to eat what he has cooked…
But you know what – I gave him 3 out of 10 for the dinner - Which is far better than what my in-laws gave me for the chapattis I had prepared 1st time in Sasural… HAHAHa – but isn’t that a old story???????
Point noted: If given further training I can get rid of this cooking business.
Conclusion - Work from home is a miracle – Utilize it to the fullest ;-)
