THE ULTIMATE BLOG CHALLENGE DAY 16
Yes, the title says it all! Why can't boyfriends in real life be like the blue-eyed romantic heroes of the daily soaps? Or maybe right out of the pages of old English classics? If authors could come up with eternal couples like Romeo-Juliet and Scarlett O'Hara-Rhett Butler, history witnessed the evergreen love stories of Shahjahan-Mumtaz and Laila-Majnu, Ekta Kapoor could create Mihir-Tulsi and Anurag-Prerna, then why not men today be like Romeo or Shahjahan or even Mihir Virani?
One advantage of being with the same guy for a prolonged period is that you know him inside out. You know his reaction to every situation. Come, let's have a look -
Situation 1 : My dupatta flies across his face
Hero : Eyes closed, feel the soft fabric, inhale every scent of mine that lingers in that 3 yards of cloth and wishes that the moment never ends.
Boyfriend : Oho! this bloody dupatta is restricting my vision. Baby, careful with your clothes.
Situation 2 : We are out for a walk, suddenly the air turns chilly
Hero : He'll invariably have a jacket covering him, which is is transferred from him to me in a speed which is directly proportional the onset of chill in the air.
Boyfriend : (Won't have a jacket, just like me) Baby, I did remind you to carry your jacket before leaving the house, right? See, you shouldn't have argued!
Situation 3 : I turn to leave, trip, and fall
Hero : His instincts are abnormally sharp and fast, he catches me before I hit the ground. And there we are, in a waltzing pose, gazes locked for what seems an eternity.
Boyfriend : (With a how-on-earth-did-she-fall look on his face) Baby, what happened? Watch your steps. Come, give me your hand, let me pull you up. From next time, look where you step, and not at the sky!
Situation 4 : We are on a long drive
Hero : His eyeballs keep shuttling between the road and me. Never misses a chance to brush his hands against mine while changing gears. A sudden daring moment may come when he would lean across to plant a peck on my cheek.
Boyfriend : (Eyes fixed on the road) Baby, did you fasten the seat belt? Baby, just check who's calling me on my cellphone - tell him I'm driving.
Disclaimer - Though this in not a work entirely based on fiction, any resemblance to any of your boyfriends/husbands is purely co-incidental.
P.S - My boyfriend may not lend me a jacket when I am cold, or catch me moments before I fall or steal a kiss, speeding on a highway, but he is an adorable guy, just the way he is!
