Rolling my eyes I listed; “Tall, handsome, wealthy. Doctor, lawyer, or engineer.”
“At your age,” he said, “isn’t sapience enough?”

Good one Asha
You are welcome Asha
Ha, the never ending wish-list and sapience seldom features in it, though that’s the most needed 🙂
This is the true story of my sister and my oldest cousin shortly before my marriage. My sister and I still laugh about it.
So true! I hope things have changed a little now.
I love this, Asha! One of the perks about being married for a long time is that for years now I haven’t had to listen to that question. 😉
Hahaha right? My poor sister had to endure this. This was an actual conversation between her and our eldest cousin, and initially all in teasing. But when he came out with his last line, a family legend was born!
Haha… I know this!
So familiar, no?
