I have been having this insatiable craving for mete chorchori for the longest time now. Like for ever, Since 20th June 2015.
I have also been through crazy highs and lows for a real long time now. More lows than highs.
What with days of not wanting to get out of bed, to days of browsing through Pinterest all day long trying to cheer myself up with pictures of chocolate cakes, glazed chicken and pretty quilts, life has been pretty crazy.
Unfulfilled craving for mete chorchori has just been adding to my woes.
Hence yesterday on our way back, I had been pretty grumpy.
SSM: What happened?
SSM: Okay. (Continues driving)
(Silence for some time as I grumble in my head about how SSM never probes me after I say ‘nothing’)
Me: So remember, how on 20th of June I had told you that I am craving for mete chorchori and you had said that you get the best mete chorchori only in North Kolkata and you shall get it for me. It has been ages since we have had that conversation. I guess this is what nine years of being married does to people.
SSM: Eight years. Seven and a half, actually.
SSM: We have been married for seven and a half years.
Me: Of course. Seven and a half. I remember. But that is not the point. Just because of your fixation for North Kolkata, I am starving to death.
(I notice SSM roll his eyes at that.)
Later that evening at home.
SSM: Why do you have dark circles around your eyes?
Me: Because I haven’t eaten mete chorchori for ages.
My Ma-in-law (she is a sweetheart) on hearing our conversation, laughed, and promised that she would be getting mete and cooking chorchori for me today evening.
And that is how I get mete chorchori for dinner tonight. :|
(I shall vote this as my most random post ever. But I am ecstatic since morning just thinking about dinner.)
