He is catching up with the news , browsing through the news paper after dinner. Hand involuntarily moving from the bowl full of grapes to mouth.
She sits down with the good housekeeping magazine.
She : So when will you ever learn?
She: What is your weight?
He: (pursing his lips) I did not check.
She : So when will you check?
He : don't know
She: Did you exercise today?
She : what all food did you have today?
He: Whatever you packed for me!( face full of innocence)
She: You sure you did not have any thing else?
He: nothing that I can remember.
She: So when did you have this( she is showing golden wrapper....the ones which comes with chocolates)?
He: what? Oh! that I don't exactly remember!
She: (This act of innocence , is what makes her loose her control) Why don't you keep a food dairy.....if you have a passion to do something you can do it...( her voice slowly breaking)
Do you remember when you started promising me to take care of your health? how much can I do? I am really worried! When will you ever start to take care?
He: ( seeing her eyes filled with tears he slowly grasps the seriousness of the situation. he is soft and mellow) You are there to take care na?
She: (she has decided not to give up)Don't try to play with me?
He: I promise you.....I will be more careful .......no more chocolates............I am going to keep a record of what I eat.............happy?
She:I don't believe you....(she off to sleep)
Next day ....He is busy doing exercise when she wakes up.Her heart melts(she still tries to keep a stern countenance).The whole day he is making loud plans to start walking regularly....
In a week he brings home an exercise bike....and is burning calories regularly.
She wants to make up for all that she blurted out that night....she is only happy to have motivated him....
She is reminded of an easy chocolate recipe....
she blends together 1/2 cup Marie biscuit powder,
1/2 cup coconut milk powder
1/2 cup drinking chocolate powder
1/2 cup condensed milk
makes a dough....a mold different shapes with it.....
She : this is for you...
He:(is cautious and watching her reaction) I'll just take one....(while scooping two)
