In our living room. I was reading review on the latest model of hair dryer.
Beb, this new hair dryer brand sounds interesting. It says that it can dry the hair twice as fast with lower heat so that it doesn’t do as much dammage to the hair. Sounds cool right?
Naaah, it’s just advertorial campaign beb. Don’t trust them. Drying your hair is just a matter of mass transfer.
Exactly. Since it’s about mass transfer, then the same initial steady state condition will give different result if the external factor like heat or wind speed introduced to it is varried, right? So the advertorial language is actually valid and based on scientific fact.
errr….honey, look! A flying elephant!! (and then he runs away with littleM)
In a train from Sfax to Tunis. I was looking at the scenery of olive garden in the window.
Isn’t it nice, the scenery?
Yeah. Those olive farmers are quite amazing. Niat banget gitu nanem pohon zaitunnya miring-miring gitu barisannya.
(long silence, looking at me with astonishment) sayang, look again more carefully. Those olive trees are actually planted on straight lines to one another, but since you are looking at it side ways, it seems like those olive trees are planted in a diagonal line. (laughing)
(looking back to the lines of olive trees) errghh…heheh… (looking at littleM) look, baby, we are in the train!! Chooo-chooo….
Those are actual conversations occuring in our daily life during our short 4 years of marriage. I am lucky to have found such a smart man who is comfortable in his own skin. I love the fact that we can have those silly conversations and laugh while also having a more deep and meaningful conversations as well. And the fun thing about being with him is that we have our own internal jokes that when we see something or hear a key word that relates to the joke, we just look into each other and we will burst in to tears laughing. So thank you, Masnya, for being an awesome partner in crime, in parenting, and in life. May we have more conversations to come, be it silly or smart. Happy anniversary, sayang. Love you!
