I might have said in the past that the man who helps clean up after my child’s vomit, the man who eats my HOT Parangikai (Pumpkin) Kootu and the man who wakes up in the morning to help get my child ready is the sexiest one on the planet.
That is all true.
The geek in me also adores a man who can run math modeling on excel for me after a long day at work.
People’s magazine has got it all wrong with its sexiest man list. They don’t have a freakin’ clue.
I think this is what life is all about….preparing hard… trudging up the bloody hill (well, in this case it is the steep stairs) …and being dressed to impress when show time eventually arrives.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…there lived 3 Monday Warriors.
They woke up on a Monday morning.
One went to high school and survived quizzes, tests and exams.
One went to work and survived meetings.
One just had way too much fun for a Monday.
They all came back home, shared a cup of chai and decided to take on the rest of the work that needed to be done on a Monday evening.
To all you #MondayWarriors and #MondaySurvivors – much love and light.
This persimmon tree went completely bald in winter.
Last couple of days, it has been sprouting leaves.
I could write an essay on how I find the sprouting completely magical. But, I don’t have to.
Because Dr. Ian Malcolm Jeff Goldblum said everything there was to be said in “Jurassic Park” – “I’m, I’m simply saying that life, uh… finds a way.”
My huge crush on Dr. Malcolm (and the writer behind him Michael Crichton) hasn’t died in the 2 decades. It is because he said one of the most brilliant phrases ever said about life.
Today was a beautiful rainy day in Austin.
Wherever you are, stop to smell the roses.
It is too bad that they didn’t hold the Olympics 100 meters dash in Ari’s parking lot today morning.
Between the comings and goings of my life and the boys life, it has been getting harder and harder to be in the many different places at the same time.
But, I decided that I need to be in the right place, at the right time with the right guy.
So, I told my colleague yesterday night that I wont’ be able to make it to the morning meeting. She obliged and moved the meeting. Bless her heart.
Today morning, I rushed to drop off Adi and my carpool at school.
Then, I rushed back home.
I got in the shower, got dressed and rushed to meet him.
All because, there was never a guy on this planet who wooed a girl for a breakfast date as much as he did.
There was never a mom on this planet who dashed from the parking lot to the cafeteria to get to the breakfast date on time as I did.
I would have bet Bolt hands down.
