So the other day me & wifee were driving along the Magrath road inĀ  Bangalore. When out of the blue wifee suddenly shot back with a question/statement “Why on earth is Mac so expensive?”. Now this was an opportunity for someone like yours truly to impress the wifee with knowledge prowess. I mean you don’t leave this opportunity even if you are 10 years into the marriage and for me, I haven’t even completed 10 months.

So I went into details of how the Mac has a different hardware platform and the software which work more efficiently over the machine as compared to the others. I was about to delve into the drawbacks of restrictive hardware access by Mac and Apple. I saw the wifee was looking towards me as if I had just been reincarnated from a different planet.

That was when I realized I was talking about this-

And the wifee was talking about this-

After that I did the most sensible thing a man would do “Shut Up” :

    Can relate to it, as have been in the same kind of situation, so now i always ask – to which thing she is pointing to before saying anything.

    A Nice one..:)

    But why do u say ‘wifee’..why not her name? :)Somehow a name sounds better me thinks than slotting into terms like ‘wife’ ‘husband’ etc which come with a lot of pre conceived moulds dont you think? šŸ™‚

      @Preeti: I honestly don’t know why I don’t use the name….May be on second thoughts specifying a name tones down the humor

    I have gone through plenty of your blogs and book reviews. I am a debut author and have recently written a book ‘We can pull it off’. Is there a way to have the book reviewed by you? It is an interesting concept and I would like to see it widely read.Your advice will be helpful
