A pair of comfits

A  pair  of  comfits  (the  doctor  sandals)  is  just  a  pair  of  comfits.  It  walks  its  wearer  out  in  comfort.  Sometimes,  the  reason  for  which  it’s  bought  makes  it  special;  it  becomes  a  pair  of  uncommon  comfits.  

Hence,  the  incident  of  Mr.  Kapoor.  He  remembered  how  he  felt  that  the  pain  in  his  knees  had  reduced  since  he  started  using  the  pair  of  comfits.  It  was  a  new  pair  gifted  to  him  by  his  beloved  wife  on  his  last  birthday. 

Initially,  he  was  hesitant  to  buy  any  birthday  gift.  He  thought  that  exchanging  birthday  gifts  is  a  practice  among  kids,  teens  and  youth.  He  had  crossed  forty;  he  shouldn’t  be  into  all  this.  In  addition,  he  wished  for  a  non-pompous,  silent  birthday  that  can  be  celebrated  best  with  the  family  and  good  food.  But  his  wife  pursued  him  to  buy  something  for  daily  use  on  his  birthday.  She  reasoned  that  she  would  go  and  buy  something  that  may  vary  in  size  and  colour  and  thus  would  be  of  not  his  liking.  She  thus  requested  Mr.  Kapoor  to  go  by  himself  and  buy  something  that  he  might  desire.  When  he  returned  that  she  might  be  wasting  money  on  gifts  which  she  should  refrain  from,  she  said  that  she  would  give  him  an  upper  limit  of  money  to  be  used  for  the  birthday  gift,  which  she  did,  and  which  Mr.  Kapoor  thought  was  reasonable.  Even  then  he  showed  no  desire  to  go  to  market.  

On  Ms.  Kapoor’s  insistence,  he  asked  her  to  accompany  him,  which  she  agreed  to.  They  went  to  the  market.  They  started  exploring  various  things.  Then  they  came  across  a  pair  of  comfits.  The  salesman  told  them  it  helps  managing  the  knee  pain.  Ms.  Kapoor  recalled  that  Mr.  Kapoor  had  knee  pain.  She  thought  it  would  be  best  to  buy  the  pair  of  comfits.  And  thus,  they  zeroed  upon  it.  Since  then,  the  pair  of  comfits  has  reduced  the  pain  in  Mr.  Kapoor’s  knees.  It  is  now  a  symbol  of  understanding,  care  and  love  between  Mr.  and  Ms.  Kapoor.
