The food debate!

Me and Vin are always at loggerheads when it comes to food habits...To be precise,he hardly minds what I eat..and I mind almost everything that he eats...
As fate would have it,two people who are the complete opposite of each other are now married...and while every other difference in our traits is positive and makes our marriage rock,food is something which we can never agree upon...and it often brings us to I-am-not-talking-to-you situation(obviously the person not talking is me!)

To make things clear,he is an absolute non vegetarian,and I am an animal lover,an almost PETA activist,and a huge supporter of vegetarianism..

so anyways..this sunday afternoon, we were lazing around in the house.Vin managed to sprain his back while ironing his jeans and thus all weekend plans were restricted to the 4 walls of the house..and I didnt mind it too much since i was spared the pain of dressing up!
Our conversation progressed and digressed in the following way:-

Me:-Iam too lazy to make dinner...can we order in something
Vin:-(twinkle in the eye)-yeah..why what are we ordering?
Me: You decide..I want to eat something exotic..
Me:-How about a Pizza
Vin:-Pizza is not exotic..Pizza is our almost every third day food...
Me:-Then you decide..
Vin:-Hmmmm..I cant decide for you ..all u eat is ghaas foos
Me:-Huh..tats not ghaas foos..I eat healthy food..
Vin:-Yeah,double cheese margharita,garlic bread with extra cheese,florentine,,,sounds deliciously healthy...
Me:-Atleast I am a vegetarian!
Vin:-Yeah,I mean just so you are scared of putting on weight,you avoid the delicacies of life...I know not everyone is lucky to be fit!
Me:-Huh..Non veg food is no delicacy..I dont get kicks out of killing someone for my so called delicacy
Vin:-But I dont kill them...they are already dead when I am having them

The discussion was terminated and the topic was changed to discuss the movie we wanted to watch..

Meanwhile as he was watching Matrix for the n+1th time,I was working on editing some videos sent by the volunteers of PFA on how rashly the poor little creatures were treated by people.Noticing that I was not watching his favorite movie with him the n-1th peeped into my laptop to see what I was so deeply lost in..
The next moment,the grinning vin was seriously watching the screen of my laptop.
He was pretty moved and traumatized by the whole thing...and for rest of the day didn't really argue over the superiority of non vegetarian cuisine..

In the evening I was engrossed in watching Tom and Jerry..when suddenly vin announced

"I decided"
Vin:-I am quitting non veg food!
Me:-(Wide eyed,flabbergasted,shocked,surprised and elated..and blah blah)Really?
Vin:-Yeah,I m really moved by what I saw..
Me:-(Wow..)but then vin are you sure you can leave it all of a sudden?
Vin:-Iam dead sure..
Me:-ohh..thats wonderful,I knew you would understand some day.
Vin:-Yeah,I have even planned my diet now
Me:-Woow..Tell me..

Vin(Ear to ear grin):-From now onwards I will only have Boiled chicken,fish and other sea food.As for the rest of the delicacies,I will have them only once in a week or two...and for the rest,I will be a vegetarian!

I didnt have words!

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha !!!! Girls are smart!!!

About fooding habits, we can eat whatever we want to from "non-veg" to "tons of cheese" to "all milk items" etc, if we do regular walking for 30 mins a day; NOTHING IS FATTENING !!! Have you ever seen a fat farmer in India? They consume more milk products than we do, but they do more exercise.

Getting regular for the first 6 months might be difficult but after that its an addiction!!!

OMG--how in the world do two people whose food habits are extreme live together?! Proof that love IS for real!

we do have fun:)but the age diff is not as much as the one in cheeni kum(thank god for small mercies!!)

preeti said...
