Happy Married Life

When I was a kid,mum taught me to wish-"Happy Married Life",every time we went on the dias to wish the newly married couple.As I grew older,I remember asking her if there was any better way to wish newly married couples.She suggested that I should try rephrasing the same thing-Old wine in a new bottle trick.Somehow,over the years I've noticed that some brides/grooms find it amusing/annoying every time i thrust my hands into theirs and mutter a cheerful-"Happy Married Life".
They must be secretly wondering-

a."I wish i could punch her teeth out....What is she smiling at????""
b."Wasn't she 8 when i last saw her??"
c."Bloody Hell!One more happily un-married person........(almost in tears)!!!"
d."Wait till its your turn....!!!!!!(accompanied by an evil grin)"

Somehow,marriages always seem to be about the food.99% of the invited guests come to weddings only to have food.The other 1% come in search of prospective brides/grooms.They could save having those people with Oh-My-Mum-pulled-me-here and Where-is-the-food kinda looks on their face by just serving food in the parking lot....
And until I become the bali ka bakra or rather bakri,I will continue saying those magical words...."Happy Married Life!!!!!"

I attend weddings or for that matter any function, only for the sake of food and nothing else. Born to eat kind of person. Other aspects rarely arouses any kind of interest.

When you get to the time when your mom starts commenting that you're not dressed up well enough to attend a marriage, you know she's going to the marriage to fix yours! that's the time you say no thanks to social occasions! God, Oldies! can't live with them, can't live without them!

One thing i hate about wishing married people (or anyone for that matter)
is the phony smiles you've to give out , and they return you a smile far phonier than your own. Its like a who's smile is the phoniest of them all contest. So when it comes to functions ,I just stick to the food section, come in , eat , get out... :D
