In a shopping mall:-
” Vihaan don’t you think we should buy this, I bet it will look awesome in your study table”, Asha was trying to direct her husband’s attention towards a customized table lamp.
Vihaan chanced a glance at the lamp and replied “hmm”.
Asha took it as a signal to buy the lamp.
Later in their home :-
Vihaan was unpacking the gifts and necessities that had bought for Christmas when he saw the table lamp, he summoned his wife immediately.
” Asha, where are you”?
” coming” She arrived within a few minutes “Yes”?
” Why did you have to buy this”? He asked her showing the lamp.
She stood there for second trying to understand the situation. This man had agreed to her ” you acceded to my decision”.
” I didn’t actually, it was just a hmm”.
Asha looked baffled at him, what does he mean? “Well if that’s the situation, then at least speak a few words,” she sighed ” At least express yourself. We are newly married, we don’t know much about each other. So please say sentences in full, I’m not the best coder to understand what your codes of hmm represent in each situation”, she rattled, her voice rising gradually.
He looked at her bemused ” woman hush, you look murderous now, ” he chuckled ” will follow your advice ok”.
She knew that was his way of apologising and perhaps she had a lot to learn about him.
