An un-Impromptu Date @ Impromptu
As I reach home, she is dressed for an apparent occasion and I am trying hard to remember the occasion that I have missed out from the calendar of things I am supposed to keep track of. Befuzzled, I enter the house and drop my bag and prepare myself for a round of "thrashings". However, surprisingly, Gods were in generous mode and wifey asked me to get ready for an outing. Now, unaware of the purpose or reason, all I knew was to be ready decently so that am not under-dressed for a place or overdressed for it. Well, I managed to be set in another 15 minutes and still wondered what was on. I am instructed to proceed and fire up the engine of the car and proceed as asked. The navigation was taken over by wifey and I was a clueless driver dancing to her directions.
Soon we pulled into Vatika Towers, which seemed to be an office complex at the outside but there is a central area in the front courtyard where this nice restaurant has been put up. While the lawns are used for outdoor seating, there are aesthetically decorated interiors for those who prefer to avoid the humidity of a hot day. We were one of those few and apparently it was all planned out. We were ushered to our seats in a nicely cozy corner, seats which had already been reserved on the request of the "organizer". As we settled into large sofas behind the table, we observed the carefully crafted interiors with a raw yet contemporary look.
We asked for the check and this was when an infinite wait started. At one point in time, we wondered if they had considered us to be "valued guest" in the literal sense and were hesitant to provide a bill. After 2 reminders and over 20 minutes of wait, the check finally came in. As we left the place, all we had in mind was a lovely evening spent in a wonderful environment.
