I was kind of angry with my lovely wife just the other day, and the story goes like this, it is her emails, and more emails and more emails of hers, nothing personal.
She came back late from work that day about 7.35 pm, so we decided to go out for dinner instead of cooking at home, we finished our dinner and i thought of taking my children to McD and loafed for a while, so i told my wife to go back first so that she could take her shower and wind down after a hard day's work. After loafing with the children at McD, three of us slowly walked home (McD is in very near vicinity to my house).
As soon as i opened the house door, my wife clad in her pyjamas was busy reading and replying her emails, not feeling so comfortable with the scene, sacartiscally i told her it would be nice if she could just build a sleeping room in her office, ( i knew i was rude) but i just could not contain the frustration at how email has been so intertwined with one's life and creeping into our own cocoon.
You know i really hate the part,(most probably you have seen it many times from the movies) where the lady dons the sexy lingerie, on the bed,looking very seducing, inviting, appealing, arousing, and really giving you the urge to "come on" and you go on the offensive, you attack, you charge forward, you fire your salvos, and suddenly you are floored, when she says something like this " Let me finish these emails first, they are very urgent, i got to prepare for tomorrow's meeting, my boss wants it the first thing in the morning, or i am already late for the date line , i got to prepare this emails for tomorrow's meeting, and worse still she doesnt even land her sight on you, her hands are not busy carressing you, but instead her sight is glued to the note book, her fingers are busy patting the keyboard instead of you, her mouth is not lip locking yours, but instead she is reading out or mumbling the contents of those emails,,,,,hahahahahaah
I know my lovely wife,working in the international company with offices scattered around the world, and with different time zones, and with that she is always being inundated non-stop with emails. Sometimes i just wonder, seriously, in my wife's instance, could we really not distant ourselves from emails, from business phone calls when we have given our solid working time to our organisation, and when it comes to private times, can we really make it our private time?
You know sometimes, i really think even if we miss out on something, life still goes on, if we miss replying some emails, life still goes on, if we miss that few business calls, life still goes on, if we miss certain messages, life still goes on but if we miss out today's togetherness, tomorrow 's togetherness might not be the same, if we miss out today's saying of " I Love You", tomorrow's "I Love You" may not be the same.
