A Wet Towel Dilemma...

Yesterday morning, I came out of bathroom, half naked. As usual I was racing against the clock to start for office. Dressed myself and came out for breakfast.

“Have you left the wet towel again on the bed”, Kuhoo inquired arranging the plates.

Shoulders down, I tried my standard answer, “There was no other place”.

She smiled like a stubborn boss, “There are lots of places to keep if you look around”. I normally don’t argue back when she is smiling; you’ll never know what is in her sleeves.

But the problem continues and here I explain.
  • The bathroom is attached to the bedroom. The most visible object I see coming out of the bathroom is my bed.
  • It’s also the place where my shirt and trousers are kept for wearing that day. Jumping on one leg when I put on the trousers, the bed is the only place I can throw the towel.
  • And I must free my hands to secure the buttons and zip else the outcome can be worse, considering my maid can anytime barge into the room without knocking the door even once.
  • The other option I have is to go jumping on one leg towards the balcony and keep the towel on the wire. But the problem is - my balcony is visible from my hot padosan’s kitchen. She is the spice of my life currently and I don’t want to be seen by her when I am not properly dressed.
  • I could have attempted a Salman or even a John Abraham, but the problem is I have only one pack to show.
  • Twice I gave that to Adi to keep the towel on a chair. But he tied that around his neck and started running around, “I am Per-man”.
  • Once I threw it under the bed but that night I was asked to wash it.
Friends actually I don’t want to test Kuhoo patience but I am running short of ideas. Can you help?

hey manish sir, interesting predicament...!

perhaps a solution might be to keep a bucket nearby the bed so u can put it into that, rather than the bed?

Mampi said...

I am reminded of my favorite man's antics at my own place. But he sometimes has to live alone, so he is learning it gradually. Try imagining Kuhoo is not around for a few days... But I know you cannot.
Bravo Kuhoo !!!
But Manish, I laughed out loud so many times in this post... THanks

Spontaneous Mini said...

Hilarious!you are funny.
But I am with Kuhoo.

How do we know said...

wait a minute.. i m still wiping my tears from all that laughing! God! This was funny!
I have an idea - tell Kuhoo u volunteer to lock the door, then put the towel on the balcony before getting dressed(or after). Unless I am mistaken, that is also the time ur hot padosan will be in the kitchen.

After 2-3 days of this, either you will be seeking asylum at the padosan's door, or.. no maybe we dont want to think abt it.

Harshita said...

BTW, baat mein logic hain... ;)

It is hilarious... par... I am with Kuhoo here... Find a way to make things right...hehe

D said...

None at all! I'm on the other side of the towel, er, fence!

Manish Raj said...

Leo mere bhai...Thank you so much. Indeed I could have tried this. Let me check..

@ Mampi, Mini, HDWK, Harshita and D

Haso..aur haslo..I can imagine what you girls do (or will do) to your husband..

Kiran said...

hehe that was really funny :-)
I can understand how Kuhoo feels ;-)

zirelda said...

I have to laugh at the predicament because the visual it brings up is just too funny.

How about a towel hanger attached to the bed? Right in line with your vision as you bolt out of the bathroom?

Hi Kiran

Thanks for liking this but pass on some advice also please.

Hi Zirelda

Thank You so much. And so many thanks for the advice.

Hi Mithe

Thanks but why not wish luck to me ?

Hi Pink Orchid

You are right. After 15 years, I will read this again and we all will laugh. Thanks for visiting.

i am what i am said...

ha ha funnnnyyy post.....sorry but i've got no advise on this however i hard i tried to rack my head....neither am i married and my dad is a real good guy who always hangs his towel in the balcony....maybe you can just stop using the towel altogether....somethin like a disposable towel like tissues...i really dont know..

Pinku said...

wow!! here we are discussing economic crisis and poor dear Manish is under so much stress all because of a towel.

Hey why dont you try the wash basin as a possible solution, you could just throw it their in a basket ball style.

I can tell you it worked for my man...he did that once and now I prefer the towel on the bed, on the floor, on the chair or even on my office clothes laid out on the bed, anywhere that is except the wash basin.

my space said...

lol! Well i will tell u the solution my DH found..he spreads open the WET towel on the bed and claims that he has done so to dry it !!!So what if the bed gets wet ,the towel does dry out in a few hourd;-)

moon's muse said...

Dude,bring back the one pack!!!Show the hot padosan not the SRK/Amir way,tell her Manish rules and for your sweet wife's sake towel in the balcony!:P
