On an evening in a crowded mall
Away from the office's constant strife
I stood, head held high as the new VP
Surrounded with a colourful array
Of neatly stacked clothes and lingeries
For the three ladies that I live with.
Glancing perfunctorily, I select the best-suited three
A lingerie, a saree, and a pair of shorts, respectively
For the missus, mother and daughter.
My heart prided in understanding the pattern
Of feminine minds and just then,
I bumped into another shopper
Carrying multiple bags like me
I gathered all my bags without any fuss,
Mind you, I'm bit fussy, but my mood being good,
I waved a 'That's fine' and hurried away.
The missus opened the door and hugged me,
Gauging my facial muscles and
We kissed briefly.
She passed on the good news
And in came the remaining two ladies to wish me
I handed each of them a carry bag
"Calls for a celebration" I chirped happily
And could hear murmurs of happiness
My daughter squealed in delight
"A saree, yipee, perfect for traditional day at college"
Upon hearing that, I choked
Missus winked and gave a cheeky smile
"You better take me to Goa now! She ordered,
Expressing her delight
Whilst admiring the peach coloured pair of shorts.
"Wait", I cried
But it was too late as the box was in mother's hand now
She viewed the contents and
Stormed away inside her room
Only to emerge within seconds
With a smile on her face
"Thank you for making me feel young again!"
I heaved a sigh of relief
Before retiring for the night,
The missus said,
"You really understand the pattern of feminine minds"
