Mrs Chitterchatter and Mr Balanced have been married for close to two decades. That’s something surprising, according to Mr Balanced! According to Mrs Chitterchatter, they are married for sure and happy sometimes, well most of the times. And then she has a doubt! ‘I have entire life to figure that out’, she assures herself and goes on about everyday life.

Lets tip toe into their life and then leave it to you to decide…

Scene 1

Winter is the only pleasant season at the metro city by the coast, where they dwell. Mrs Chitterchatter feels cold when the mercury touches 25 Celsius notch. Mr Balanced sweats at this temperature. One such night, the fight erupts between two. (No breaking news here! Its a perennial drama!) The bone of contention is the ceiling fan.

“Lets have a 50-50 deal”, she suggests.


“I allow you to turn the fan on and…?”


“Let me rephrase. You turn on the fan. I’ll decide its speed”

“Hmmm. Agreed.”

He turns the fan on. She gets up and sets the speed to “0” and has a last laugh!

Scene 2

Mrs Chitterchatter is fitness enthusiast and Mr Balanced…do I need to tell you? You got it, right!

Its morning. Somehow, she had managed to motivate him to accompany her for a morning walk. Once they hit the road, in few minutes, he is seen marching like a soldier and had picked up a pace. Mrs Chitterchatter tries her best to match her pace with him. Soon she runs out of breath. She starts falling behind.

He keeps marching as if he has to reinforce the battalion at the LoC! After a while, she stops by the roadside to catch a breath. With her hands on her waist, she calls him out. But it is lost in the air.

Few minutes go by.

Mr Balanced halts with a jerk. Realizes that better half is missing. Checks on left and right. No sign! He then turns around as if obeying to command, “Parade, Piche mood”*.

“There you are”, he says pointing to her.

“Why have you stopped in between?”, he questions

“Thought you will clear the enemy at the LoC and then signal me to join you”, she replies with scornful voice.

Scene 3

He is searching for something in his wardrobe. He has pulled more than half of the things on the floor. Abandoning the search operation after a while, he calls her out.

“Where is my tie pin?”

“At its place”, comes the reply from the kitchen.

“Which place? Do I have a specific place for it?”, he wonders aloud.

“Your wardrobe”

“Where in my wardrobe, dear ‘shipshape’?”

By now, she enters the bedroom. Aghast at the mess, she tip-toes her way to wardrobe, pulls a drawer and takes out a marble box. Places it in his hands.

He is all smiles. The walls put the ear plug on, for there is going to be a battle of words.

“I can’t find anything if it is orderly. Its so easy to locate the stuff when its messy. There is an order in my chaos ” he states, all the while dumping his stuff back into the wardrobe.




So what’s your opinion? Déjà vu???…

*Piche mood: Turn around

Mayuri Nidigallu · April 9, 2018 at 9:30 am

My verdict : They are VERY HAPPILY MARRIED! And having fun along the way too! Loving these anecdotes, Anagha! They make me start my day with a smile 🙂

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 2:55 pm

    Their chemistry is growing intense with all these “nok-zok”, I suppose! Thanks Mayuri.

#Queen · April 9, 2018 at 9:50 am

So perfectly relatable every scene.

Tongue Twister for H

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 9:19 pm

    Thanks DeeDee.

Pr@Gun · April 9, 2018 at 10:07 am

ha ha, so apt, happily married cant find the things at exact place, however hard they try. the things in front of eyes suddenly go invisible, state of happiness i presume.

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 2:21 pm

    You are right Pragun. Its so difficult to spot things right infront of the eyes! Thanks for visiting.

Meena · April 9, 2018 at 11:06 am

Hahaha! Loved Mrs Chitterchatter’s quip to Mr. Balanced when he came back to her during their morning walk!

Oh! yeah they are happily married! Only they don’t think so! 🙂

I blog at Check out my a2z too if you have time

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 2:19 pm

    The secret of being happily married seems to lie with constant light hearted bickering for this husband wife! Thanks Meena.

Balaka · April 9, 2018 at 11:21 am

Kahani ghar ghar is said that the day you both can agree on the temperature of the air conditioner is the day your marriage becomes a happy one. Great post. I laughed a lot. Especially that jogging one.

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 2:16 pm

    Going by what it is now, Mrs Chitterchatter and Mr Balanced will need a life time to get to agree on the temperature of AC! Till that time we will have great source of tales… Thanks Balaka.

Akshata Ram · April 9, 2018 at 11:21 am

Loved this bickering- you will hardly find a household where this doesn’t take place. I love the overly Mrs Chitterchatter- whats it with men and messiness

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 2:14 pm

    Some equations are universally true e.g. men and mesiness, well most of the times, I could say! Thanks Akshata.

BellyBytes · April 9, 2018 at 2:37 pm

Ghare ghare mati che chuli. Well we have a similar scenario though often the dialogues and situations vary. Hubby dear is the neat freak in our case and I walk faster than him though his stride is bigger. And I’ve lost the battle of the fan/ac. I just use an extra blanket if it is too cold or go sleep in another room!

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 3:16 pm

    Hahaha… Sunita, enjoyed your snippets. Come what may, the chemistry between the husband and wife always seems to have some fireworks!
    Thanks for visiting.

    Thanks for the appreciation! Glad you paid visit to me.

Iain Kelly · April 9, 2018 at 3:55 pm

This sounds like a typical marriage to me, including my own. They seem very happy indeed 🙂

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 4:38 pm

    Thanks Ian

Roma · April 9, 2018 at 5:22 pm

How cute, truly happily married is the verdict. I could relate to all the three situations ??

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 6:27 pm

    Thanks Roma

Ramya Abhinand · April 9, 2018 at 6:19 pm

Ha ha ha yes yes dejavu indeed, the story of my life!!!

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    A universal phenomenon,I suppose. Thanks Ramya.

Disha · April 9, 2018 at 7:07 pm

Ha ha! Kahani har ghar ki, kahani ghar ghar ki (Story of all homes)
Scene 1 is repeated in my home throughout the year. They are so happily married. 🙂

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 8:12 pm

    Thanks Disha.

sukrisblog · April 9, 2018 at 7:54 pm

Haha hilarious one Anagha! The story remains same everywhere just that I decide to cover myself with blanket and if it is too cold just switch the AC off.

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 8:12 pm

    Blanket as the line of control! Thats a good solution. Thanks Sudha.

      sukrisblog · April 9, 2018 at 10:09 pm

      Yes LoC for sure

        Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 9:31 am


Mahak @babyandbeyondin · April 9, 2018 at 7:54 pm

Haha…the ceiling fan bit is exactly like my husband and me. He needs AC every night and I can’t stand it. So he gets to switch on the AC and I keep the temperature at 25 degrees!

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 8:13 pm

    Same pinch with Mrs Chitterchatter Manisha! Thanks dear.

mammaspeaks · April 9, 2018 at 8:46 pm

Ha ha, had such a hearty laugh over it, however the moods are not this cheerful when the same scenarios play in my home. Lovely uplifting post.

    Anagha Yatin · April 9, 2018 at 8:58 pm

    Sometimes we do get to hear firecrackers busting from the Nutty families residence too! Thanks for visiting.

Alubhujiablog · April 9, 2018 at 9:50 pm

O wow it’s so enjoyable post . Ofcourse they are happily married . No question mark . Read my post

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 9:29 am

    Thanks Monika. Been contemplating visiting your blog. Hope to visit today dear.

An@m! · April 9, 2018 at 9:59 pm

Hahaha.. Every married couple can relate to this. Scene 1 and 2 are exact same for me.

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 9:30 am

    Glad to know that it struck a chord with you too as well. Thanks Anami.

Natasha · April 9, 2018 at 10:02 pm

Anagha this is really cute and relatable. Beautifully told and was laughing through and through.

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 9:30 am

    Thanks Natasha

Deepa · April 9, 2018 at 11:08 pm

This was a fun read Anagha. I can actually visulaise everything while reading and that makes your writing worth reading.

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 9:31 am

    Awww…thank you Deepa for the encouraging words!

Jyotirmoy Sarkar · April 10, 2018 at 10:04 am

No “Deja Vu” feelings in me …still unmarried but i must admit the descriptions are very vivid and dont need to give much pressure to brain to visualize it, the first two incidents have made me laugh out loudly…specially the setting the speed of fan to zero and the marching in Loc,the concluding line of scene two is amazing.
Enjoyed reading it a lot.

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 10:24 am

    I am sure you will join the bandwagon soon Jyotirmoy and hope you will recollect these anecdotes then..
    Thanks for visiting and appreciating.

Meha Sharma · April 10, 2018 at 12:03 pm

Well what should I say, Opposites attract☺️

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 12:07 pm

    Laws of nature! Thanks Meha

Aesha · April 10, 2018 at 12:28 pm

You write humour so well. I just loved the ceiling fan idea. I am going to tr this out definitely. Loved it loved it a lot.

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 12:30 pm

    Share your story once you try that Aesha! Thanks for visiting.

Rashmi · April 10, 2018 at 1:26 pm

Hilarious! I can totally relate to the scenes that you mentioned in the post.

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 2:19 pm

    Thanks Rashmi.

Archana (@yenforblue) · April 10, 2018 at 3:57 pm

Happily Married!! And Deja vu too!! Especially the morning walk incident!! Thoroughly enjoyed your post for H!!

    Anagha Yatin · April 10, 2018 at 4:40 pm

    Same pinch! Thanks Archana.

CRD · April 11, 2018 at 12:41 am

Haha. That was hillarious. This is such a made-for-each-other couple 😀


    Anagha Yatin · April 11, 2018 at 9:08 am

    Thanks Criss.

Medha Nagur · April 13, 2018 at 1:02 pm

Haha! Loved the first scene the better. She is clever. Second was just fine and third is everyday saga in most of the houses! I guess as you said it’s a Deja Vu!!!

mahekg · April 25, 2018 at 2:12 pm

So cute and I feel the couple is blessed and perfect for each other. God Bless you with all the happiness Mrs Chitterchatter and Mr Balanced 🙂
