A conversation with the Mystery Man.
Me : The besan laddoo batter looks like melted chocolate.
Mystery Man: Is that bad? what’s it supposed to look like?
Me : Light brown. Or an ochre yellow almost. You know.. The color of a besan ladoo. I think I over-fried the flour.
Me : I’m so disappointed. The laddoos are ruined. I’m in the slough of despond. And it’s Diwali. And I haven’t made any sweets. And it’s Diwali.
Mystery Man : Aww. Doesn’t matter. I’ll get you some laddoos from the sweet shop, okay?
Me : Oh no don’t. I don’t like laddoos much.
Mystery Man : And you were making them because?
Me : …….
Me : feels silly
Me : * gives up the laddoos and feels sorted *
MM is good at sorting me out. Touchwood. 🐱
