Arbit Ramblings…….

As I sit on my chair with a towel, two dirty underpants, and an obnoxious smelling pair of mismatched socks (which I wore to the exam today) lying under me, my laundry bag spilling more than retaining, cobwebs being the only thing ornamenting the room with double the number of books on bed than on the shelf (stuffed with clothes), I think may be I should be hanged for having a writer’s block in such a poetic, romantic setting, but this is the way it is.

So I m again shamelessly doing a tag….

Smoked a cigarette?: In case Dad, you finally found out my blogpage, skip to the next question. Yes, I hav smoked. Actually just tried it on my trip to Goa. Just to find out what I am missing.It was mint flavoured and RK brought it for me, had a gush or two of the smoke down my lungs, then coughed for about an hour. Never intend to do it again.

Crashed a friend’s car?:Nope, never crashed even my own.

Stolen a car?: hehe. who the fuck put this question in the tag????

Been in love?: yeah!!! at least I end up thinking so.

Been dumped?: ammm…..no. actually I never have had a gf, so the question doesn’t arise. dumped by boyfriends. no. I m irresistible.lol!!!

Shoplifted?: remember doing so sumtime when I was like in II or III. The shopkeeper had gone away for a little work and I picked up a few candies. My sister was also with me. She also took a few. She spilled the beans when we once had a fight. So my mom gave both of us a good thrashing. Then we went back to that shop and paid the money on the pretext that we had forgotten it last time.

Ofcrse I was a little kid at that time. But this is not all, just now I remebered I did it again in X standard (fairly grown up). Now there was a shopkeeper who always charged us extra money for “BANTA”(the drink in that “kanche” wali bottle). So one day I and a few school friends decided to teach him a lesson (what a moral way to do moral policing). So we like ran away after drinking, not paying the money. After that I think I have more or less mended ma ways though there are some other shopkeepers I dislike.

Been in a fist fight?: nope and yes. It wasn’t exactly a fist fight. I had a change of section in X. There was sort of an ego-clash between me and another guy, both of us were considered quite good in studies as well as extra-curriculars. One day like he wrote something on my shirt’s back. I followed suit. Slowly it turned into a dirty dual and both of us ended up with torn shirts and scratches everywhere on our backs, standing in front of the principal. But the icing on the cake is that within the next six months or so, we ended up being the best friends.

Snuck out of your parent’s house?: well, am living in a hostel for the last two years. sometimes when I get too irritated with sumthng at home, I just pack my bag and come back to the hostel.

Had feelings for someone who didn’t have them back?: Not yet sure whether she has the same feelings or not.
Been arrested?: ofcourse not! come on yaar. A “BANTA” just cost something like Rs. 5.

Been on a plane?: nope. flying to UK next week.

Been suspended from school?: Was on the verge of. I along with a friend during Diwali time bursted a cracker in the school premises and were seen by some teacher who gave our names to PT teacher. That man was hellbent on getting me suspended for a week. But luckily we saw Narendra sir on our way to Principal’s office. I being the school topper, was considered a ltl unlikely to do so. He told the PT teacher that I was basically a good guy and finally sumhow we managed to come out of the fiasco unscathed.

I along with my siblings and my mama’s children (all of roughly my age group) made prank calls saying weird things like “Main Madhuri Dixit ka Secretary bol raha hoon” or was it “kya main madhuri dixit se baat kar sakta hoon?” Then we called up someone and demanded a ransom. The guy on the other side was a ltl frightened. we put down d receiver. aur uske baad humari jo “phati”(can’t think of a btr word to describe) hai na, do din tak koi bhi phone bajta, we all were like scared to death.
