Six with the GI

One: number of children with the GI.
Two: times 10 pounds is the weight gained (by me) after living with him.*
Three: average number of arguments in a day with the same person.
Four: average number of waking hours spent with him in a day.
Five: times five Illayaraja songs learnt from his bathroom singing.**
Six: years of documented togetherness.

Happy anniversary and more power to us. :) ***

* he hasn't gained a single pound in all this while.
** at least five times five.
*** We went to this (non-Indian) vegetarian restaurant (using organic, locally grown ingredients) and had a fantastically flavorful dinner. The dear boy co-operated as well. He bore a shy smile and stared (!) at people sitting or walking around and they were almost forced to make cutesy conversations with him.
**** Happy teacher's day to everyone.
