I burnt the midnight oil working on a collage to be presented to dad on this fathers day. Whole of last night. And then just before sleeping at 6:15am I wrote a mail to pa. And one to bro who is in Mumbai, to order flowers and have them delivered at home during the day while he was at work. (I dint realize that it is wkend and he would be home.. but thats not a big cause of worry). Task done, I slept peacefully at that odd hour.
Today, I just woke up to a call from Turkey :P at around 11am (half past noon India time), with eyes resembling batata with a black hole. It took me a while to understand that he was asking me to login to skype as he had called from his friends international roaming. All excited for I remembered fathers day, i passed on the wishes to his friend who is a relatively new dad. And there you go!!!
what I am just made aware of, is-
Father's day is not today but tomorrow. "wishing someone on the wrong day is sign of being a big POPAT".. yes! nooooooo :(
& I had already painted the town red last night in celebration mode, thinking today was FD... what a flop..
The only saving grace is that it is still a day in advance, but enough for me to feel like a popat!!!
The point is - How could I be so absent minded.. the entire blame goes to laptop and internet combo.
Yday when the thought of making a family collage struck me, it was already past midnight here, I chked the laptop clock which anyways shows India time so the date was 20th June. Google reconfirmed that FD is on 21st. I tell myself "Its fathers day tomorrow and I have not done anything about it". While we dont usually celebrate these days in particular, this time I wanted to. various reasons, and i wanted to. But not once in the whole night did i realize that what i thought as tomorrow was actually day after...
Nevertheless.. its better than sending belated wishes!! I shall call the bro to see if he has even logged in to chk his emails... Dad definitely wont mind getting early wishes..
The other thing that went awry, like Dhiren's dowry is my complaint in the last post.. that someone didnt call me the whole of yday.
The fact was - my cell was lying somewhere, dead for want of charged battery.. when i realized that, i quickly put it on charger only to see 3 missed calls. too bad that the post was already published by then :(
he must have really thought i am having some great fun...
Coming back to the collage, the special thing about it is - it has all the family members( hum paanch with spouses n di's kid). Ironically, we dont have any pictures of all of us in single frame as jiju had missed our wedding n being spread across geographically, we all have met only in smaller groups in last 2 years..
:( Di has just gone back after spending one whole month with mom-dad and manu is back to mumbai.. So you can imagine why i am missing them all the more and sat for making that collage?
But I must admit :) I have done a great job. Looks like we all stood together to pose for it. The collage is my latest wallpaper, So i wont be opening any windows today..
