What happens when you yawn?
Oh no, donâ€™t tell me the scientific facts as to why and how people yawn.
When I yawn in the office, the case is differentâ€¦ My team starts making noises that vary in frequency, but sound the same to me â€“ like a pack of wolves howling â€“ all of them together go â€œoooooooooooooooooooooooooâ€ in a particular tune that I cannot express in words! You need to be here to listen and understand the extent to which it irritates you.
Now that the â€˜whatâ€™ part is done Iâ€™m coming to the â€˜whyâ€™.
I got engaged a few weeks back, and ever since, my darling team-mates have received the news they are waiting for opportunities to tease me.
A simple yawn in office gets so much more meaning once youâ€™re in a relationship. Because you were engrossed in â€˜panchara adikkalâ€™ (loosely translated as flirting) with your fiancÃ© that you couldnâ€™t sleep well.
Nobody cares that the adage â€˜pyaar mein neend udd jaathi haiâ€™ is working exactly the opposite way for me! Iâ€™ve been sleeping like there is no tomorrow. The fact that my mother no longer sleeps, either because of excitement or worry, is another thing entirely.
It never stops at a yawn though.
If the phone rings, itâ€™s the fiancÃ©.
If a courier comes, the fiancÃ© has sent a gift.
If you wear a new accessory, the fiancÃ© has gifted it!
God! Canâ€™t it be my best friend from abroad sending me a gift, or my devil of a sis from Bâ€™lore?!
Do I get angry? Of course I pretend to 😉
