It was my parent’s 25th anniversary yesterday. 25 years! So my sister, grand mom and I planned this whole surprise dinner where some 20 friends of my parents turn up when we had been telling my mom that we were too busy in studies (right!!) to do anything of that sort. My sis and I gave them a glass photo frame with their wedding pic and little cut-outs of my sis and me.
Everybody turned up on time and all was fine. Except that the kids table had to be managed by me and thus I was constantly looking at menu and asking kids and grandparents what they want to eat. Was wearing my now famous pink saree, and was looking like a woman, after a fashion. And the smart-aleck captain (or whoever takes orders for the food) tried acting smart-alecky, so we laughed at his face. Dad gave mom diamond earring and chain-pendant. Mom gave dad gold-pearl ring. I think mom is happy about the fact that we planned so much (there were people she never thought we would remember calling) and I am so glad she is happy.
