HeadOverHeels, here is my story:
This is the only Indian soap I watch, and I need pin drop silence, the house in perfect order, and a cappuccino next to me on the sofa before I get my daily "fix." My husband has mocked me since July for it.
For the past two months, however, my husband has been moving closer and closer to the TV-armed with a newspaper or a book, always, to plunge into come commercials, because he's just there for the company, of course. He's always stayed in the periphery, though, hovering JUST off to the left, on his "man chair" leaving me the large couch, where I get a direct view, and he gets an angled one, and where honestly he just gets to listens to the dialogue.
Last week, a second cup of cappuccino appeared next to mine when I went to sit at the sofa, where my husband was, no newspaper, no book. "Please don't talk and analyze the episode and what is going on until the commercials start because you tend to chatter a lot." he said. I fell in love again.
Ahh that is VERY similar to what happened in our home. The kids of course are in bed reading by then, till it's time for 'lights out' at 8. The huz would wander in, tinkering with the laptop, while I sat on the couch, enjoying my show in absolute QUIET. He'd ask the odd question during commercial breaks, sometimes piss me off with his snarky comments about ASR's "behavior", but otherwise remained silent through the show, pretending he couldn't hear my gasps, sighs and Awwws. Till I began to notice some low wolf whistles, and mutters of "Nice move" during Rabba Ve moments, and yes I too fell in love all over again. Now, the discussions come naturally, but I still get a little thrown when he randomly brings it up.
