Ode to Marriage...yet again...

(First, some background)
My 7 and a 1/2 year old cousin Pooja (pyaar se usko 'pooj' bulaati hoon) and I had the following convo recently...

Me: Pooj... Ask your parents to send you to California. We can go bike riding, I can take you guys to SF, we can go to the park...
Pooj: Yea... I'll ask them... But we're going to be going to India soon...
Me: Oh really... When are you guys planning on going?
Pooj: Oh umm.. really soon...
Me: Cool.. But when?
Pooj: Umm... for your marriage...
Me: AHAHHHAHAH...
Pooj: heehee..
Me: HAHHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHHA.. Pooja... can you PLEASE tell your parents that I'm not planning on getting married anytime soon.. and to hold off on going to India... HAHAHHHHAHHAHAHA

So I went through a couple of emotions after this conversation:
Anger: that my family had the nerve to think that I was getting married "really soon"... umm excuse me.. but where's the ladka?
Amused: that the 7-year old is looking forward to going to India for my (laughter) wedding..
Moody: here we go again.. I thought I escaped the whole marriage topic for a while.. It's like a tick.. that never leaves...

Oh trust me. No one ever gives up on the marriage conversation, least of all the family.
