“SP Sir, is singing, MeenAtchi ?”
“No singing. Ammalu madam scolded him, it seems”
“For what? What mistake did he commit ?”
“At night, after madam slept, he sneaked out and made a call to someone from a STD booth. As he forgot to carry his eyeglasses dialed a wrong number and that reached madam’s cell. Madam woke up and replied, ‘hello’. SP could not recognize his wife’s voice, as he didn’t have his hearing aid too. ( In the hurry to make the call he had left both aids at home) Mistaking that response was from his friend, he replied in a sweet voice,” I love you” .
“Really, where are you ?” Asked Ammalu madam.
“In Chellappa’s STD booth” he replied”
“And madam went there?”
“Yes, madam went there”
“Enough. Now, he has no other go , than singing for the whole day and night?”
“Whole life, you mean?”
“No, Meenachi. No husband can remain singing whole life, for a small mistake of going out and making a call”
“Chettiar, our main door will be locked from this night onwards and the key will be with me”
“MeenAtchi, I’m not like SP Sir”
“All husbands are same!”
