Tomatoes, one of those people and pining

  1. Pallavi emails to tell me about how her experiments with cooking turned out. Let me just quote her: well it was a decent meal though I realized that my rajma and paneer both turned out to have excess tomatoes!!! So it was an extremely tomaty (if that’s a word) dinner!!!! I like that word. Tomaty... hmmm...
  2. In the same email, comes another statement. You're becoming like those people who go to Goa at least once a year, she tells me. Well, this is the second consecutive year... and I'm rather pleased about it! But next year, I'll go some place else.
  3. Dipti is engaged and her fiance has gone off to the US. He'll only come back for the wedding now, which is to be held either in February or March. She sits at her desk looking all forlorn (and extremely funny) and says "How will I wait four months to see him?"

Tomaty :-) Ask Pallavi to come up with more of the same: Bittergourdy, Chowchowy, gingery...

Wow - she has just opened up a whole new world of words!!! :-)

Congrats Pallu (if you're reading this)

Well, Pallu, that just means you don't visit my blog often enough...
