I'm at a loss when at home, usually because I'm too tired when I return. I don't give crap and don't take any from my siblings who are way too busy in their lives. Mostly, home is just a pit-stop before I embark for work again.
It all happened by chance. A girl sitting next to me, dressed as a complete wannabe (the kinds you can easily find in a metro) was busy texting on her phone. I tried to overlook but it isn't exactly my fault if the text size on her screen was too big. I happened to read her msgs, which went like:
Girl - Nahi, pehle aap apna naam batao
Sender- Mera naam toh Raj (how fake!) hai.
Girl - Acha, naam chodo, aapko mera no. kahan se mila? Aapne kabhi dekha hai mujhe?
My keen observation skills told me that she was going to give her correspondence exams. The book in her lap said "King's Champion, Open"
Wow! The girl was supposedly texting a random guy who happened to get her no. by chance and was simply trying his luck! I was amused. But then consciously stopped peeping because it was so stupid and my inherent social skills seemed to be cringing within.
The very next day, I was sitting next to a lady who could be as old as my mother. Grey hairs and all, she seeemd to be headed towards her office when she got a text and replied.
Sender: No dear, I'm only 35. (I mentally screamed, ONLY???? 35 IS A LOT OF AGE MAN)
Sender - I'm waiting to see you in person dear. Let's meet up.
And they call ME weird. Of all people!!! Didn't I say, life is funny!
