Yesterday was a holiday, thanks to Pongal/Sankranti.
We went out for the day- shopped till we dropped at Lifestyle- Sonny boy literally- (3 shirts for l'homme, 2 pairs of sandals for moi, 1 Build-a-Thomas for you-know-who) and then when our wallets were much lighter and us heavier (after a not-as-great-as-expected Sankranti Special Non-veg Thali at Nandhana, we headed back home and watched a movie- Blind Date on Zee Studio.
The movie was nice, and was liberally interspersed with BBC World Trust's Condom ad. Both the hubby and myself find the ad cute and totally sensible. And yesterday after watching the cute puppy in the ad for the umpteenth time. Hubby said,
"you know, what if I got a dog and named him Condom and yelled out to you in public,
""JLTEEEEEE! Have you seen Condom anywhere? I need him NOW, help me, please!""
And he looked at me, grinning.
Gave the Hubby a look that spoke volumes but later dissolved into laughter at the thought of our neighbours' faces!
Sonny boy was a witness to all this tomfoolery and later still, while having dinner, he went "Condom! Condom!" and sneaked a look at both of us for approval.
Both of us maintained an steadfast silence and went on eating.
"Nice puppy, no Ammma?"
Sigh! It was to be expected. Sonny boy is a big fan of ads. And he likes dogs. But I do wish he'd take any other name. SIGH!
Good ad, BBC.
Haven't posted any links for the ad, sorry
