I was chatting with my lady friend currently in the USA yesterday and she was quite concerned about my forthcoming surgery and recovery and expressed her regret that she was not in India to be of some help.
I asked her when she expected to be able to visit Pune where I live and she said that it would probably be December by the time that she would be able to.
I said that it would be fine as by then I would be back on my feet and capable of taking her out for a dance. After a stunned few seconds, she laughed like only she could. I asked her why she was laughing and she said ‘never mind’ and changed the subject.
I suspect I know why she laughed.
