A dress which revealed almost everything!

I have this very special green dress which is very close to my heart. I have been preserving it safely for the past 6yrs!  And its special for a number of reasons. First, it was a gift from S – his first dress for me.

I and Amma were in Hyderabad a few days before my birthday that year, attending a function. The first time S called, amma rolled her eyes. But then, for every half an hour I kept getting calls from him. The reason – he was in T.Nagar trying to buy me a birthday present. He got confused by his choices and kept calling me to ask what I would want. Everytime I got his call, I had to find a silent place to talk and that had everyone around me feel suspicious. Finally S decided on buying a dress material for me. When I was back from the call this time, amma asked me what was going on. I had to tell her that S was getting me a dress as birthday gift. She rolled her eyes again. The conversation stopped there.

Back home, on my birthday S handed me the salwar material and I literally jumped with joy. It was of my favorite color – green and the fact that he took an entire day to find something for me, meant a lot to me. Dad said he had not seen me behave this way ever and amma was again rolling her eyes.

That very year, I joined this company and guess what I wore on the first day – it’s the same green salwar S gave me and my badge photo is the proof. By then, Amma was sure something big is going on between us.

Green dress – thanks for giving a hint to my parents on what was going on between me and S 😀

This dress has seen me grow thin and thick through these years. There was a time, it was too loose that it hung on me like on a hanger (thanks to the lonely paying guest phase) and then, it has seen me grow fatter and fatter (thanks to the marriage and S) I could no longer fit in. Today, I could fit into it again and its perfect (thanks to the regular work-outs and absence of S 😛 )

I guess I will stick on to this dress, no matter how many years pass by. Such wonderful memories it carries.
