I had the most interesting morning today [given it is a Friday]. I had to buy mementos for some office work and so went to a nearby shop with my colleague. We had been referred to this place by someone. But when we got there was no shop that matched the description given to us. As we were walking down the corridor of the plaza [where this shop was supposed to be situated], a middle aged man appeared from one of the shops and asked us what we were looking for. When we mentioned mementos, he said- ‘you are in the best place in the world to order mementos’! We were a bit taken aback by his manner coz he said it like Rajnikanth says ‘Na Shivaji da’ in Shivaji. He sensed our reaction and immediately asked us if he could tell us a short story. Here it goes- ‘Once Pele was made to answer under oath in the Court. When the Judge asked Pele what position he played he said Center forward.

When we were 13, our science teacher sent the boys out of the class and had a teaching session for us girls alone. She told us all about menstruation, birds and bees. I was not embarrassed but irritated that this horror freak show was restricted for us girls. It freaked us out so much that L started crying.

There is this person in our workplace who loves to see what other people are upto. On ordinary days he doesnt bug me much. But when I am in an irritated mood, I feel like turning to him and asking 'Dude whats ur prob'. My sister once told me- always speak the truth and say it sweetly. I am wondering if there is a sweet of way of saying everything. I mean if, for example, I want to ask this irritating person at office why he wants to peer over my comp screen, how shld I do it. I am sure if I say it sweetly, he will think I am easy n come n bug me more. I wish wikepedia had answers to such questions :D
