We had a very tiring day yesterday: worked until 4 am, attended a seminar, stayed at work until 9 pm, went out for dinner, did the mandatory weekly grocery shopping, put them away neatly once we’re home, and configured the new modem we bought for our wireless internet connection. Well that part Masood did alone. Oh, and we also checked emails.
By 2 am we were both in bed, recited the dua, switched the lights off, exchanged I-love-yous, and went to sleep.
Except that I remembered something.
Getting out from bed, I heard Masood’s voice, heavy with sleep, “Kiya huwa? Where are you going?”
“Oh, I just remembered something,” I answered back, switching the lights back on.
I went over to grab the new can of air freshener that we had just bought. It’s called the Glade® Air Infusions® that uses UltraLast® technology to infuse the air with fragrance that lasts up to 1 hour. It also claims to “eliminate odors and freshen the air with a subtle blend of natural scents that invite you in and leave your home smelling fresh.”
So I sprayed the room with Glade® Air Infusions® that uses UltraLast® technology, switched the lights off, and went back to bed.
Me: I wanted to check if it indeed lasts for an hour.
Him: Hmm, that smells good.
Me: Yes, it does. And I just sprayed so little!
Me: You don’t believe me?
Him: Of course I believe you. What makes you think otherwise?
Me: You just said, “Ahan”.
Me: So that means you are in doubt.
Him: When I’m in doubt I remain quiet.
Me: No, when you are quiet, that means you are ignoring me.
Me: I’d rather have you ignoring me than doubting me.
Me: I take that back. I do NOT want you to either ignore me or doubt me.
Him: I do not ignore you, and neither do I doubt you.
Me: *felt happy from within and had laddus bursting in my heart*
Him: I love you.
Me: Oh, I love you too!
30 minutes later, Masood is almost asleep.
Me: Can you still smell it?
Me: How long do you think it has been since I’d sprayed?
Him: Maybe half an hour.
Me: Do you think the scent has faded though?
