Shopping for sarees during a sudden downpour
Do you have this, you ask pointing to the deep blue saree in your hand, in light green or baby blue? The saleswoman nods yes, draws a stool, climbs up, reaches into the top shelf and pulls out two sarees. One is light green and the other baby blue. She hands them to you and you look from one to the other. Unable to decide, you put down both sarees on the counter, on top of the 32 others you have been looking at over the past half-an-hour. You take a step back and inspect the colourful mound. You sigh frustratedly and then with your eyes closed, you pull one out from the bottom of the pile. It's yellow with purple flowers on it. You hand it to the saleswoman and say, I'll take that one. My wife will like anything I gift her. Five minutes later you walk out of the store with a saree you don't need, for a wife you don't have. And it has finally stopped raining.
